1. Very clean in all areas 2. Good sized room although we would have preferred one with a big window, ours just had a tiny one into a central shaft, not sure what would happen if there was a fire.... 3. Aircon was very good 4. Excellent Wi-fi 5. Bathroom drain smelled at times, mainly after heavy rain 6. Almost cold water in sink, shower temperature was not great 7. Lovely breakfast, I think the signs said don’t take food out of the breakfast room and don’t waste the food 8. Staff are great, some spoke English. 9. In a small street opposite an awesome ice cream shop with hotdogs next door. 10. Ideal to walk into shopping area , theatre and cathedral .
For really not much more than what I paid for a dorm bed at those I stayed in similarly big cities (such as Buenos Aires, Montevideo & Rio), I got at this place my own room which was not a drab-looking one but a modern "kind of chic" one (with a flat-screen TV, a small fridge, a/c, a telephone & an ensuite bath) with the only downside being its "fairly economy" size (still some space to move around and yes overall a "proper room" here, unlike the one at the place later in Brasilia my next stop which was just pretty much a closet!), and also included in the price was a "great buffet" breakfast (not a basic one but a variety of something like 10 items to choose from). Then yes, on top of those great attributes is also a great location pretty much right in the heart of the city with plenty of miscellaneous shops & restaurants right around and Republica metro station (Line 4) at just a walk of 5 minutes or so (a right turn after coming out followed by a left shortly after onto the big street where there's actually also a tourist info kiosk right before the station).…
Breakfast is average. Juices are very watery. Pineapple not ripe. Our room had a minuscule window opening on a tiny closed area giving no light at all. Beds were hard but you can sleep ok. Nightstands are attached to the bed and with three in a row, we had difficulty using the plugs. We had to charge electronics in the bathroom or unplug the fridge, not practical.
Friendly and welcoming staff. We were able to get our room a few hours before the check in, as a courtesy from them. The room was not big, big enough space for luggage, great bed, good shower and it had amazing blackout courtains. Breakfast was amazing, many options of breads, fruits, coffe, yougurt, basically everything. It is located in the heart of São Paulo, you can take the metro from Republica Station (yellow and red lines) to go anywhere or walk around in the main places in the centre, like Catedral da Sé, Bairro da Liberdade, Praça da República, Theatro Municipal, Vale do Anhangabaú... they are all walking distance from the hotel, 30 minutes maximum. At night, the city centre can be a little dangerous, but as long as you are careful, it is just as dangerous as any other bigi city like SP. The hotel has a very good cost-benefit, not expensive and has everything that is necessary, it isn't a luxuous place, but still, very good indeed. The only two things I didn't like were: the Wi-Fi failing few times and the noise from the street in the middle of the night, maybe rooms that are not facing the Epitacio Pessoa St. don't have this problem.…
Nice, clean hotel with good location in the old downtown. It was safe, not felt uncomfortable. The stuff was good, however they English is poor. There were good breakfast in the price. 24h front desk with the kind of stuff. I used Uber, and it was easy to find the place. There are the good restaurants eg.: boi na brasa. Thake care of the night butterflies that could be a surprise: "she is he"... maybe. There is minibar at the room, air conditioning is the the price, also there were a huge flat TV.
Not expensive, clean, good breakfast. Close to airport bus, subway. The area is not good but no dangerous. There is air conditioner in the room. Good price for what it offers. Staff is very helpful. I have elected it as my favorite hotel in São Paulo.
I went straight to the hotel from the airport, via train. So it is quite close to the train/metro/subway network for convenience (a few or more blocks away). The hotel staff were friendly, but make sure you have your Portuguese well practiced :) The room itself was ok, but the floor seemed dirty/sticky. Given the lateness of my check-in I simply made do and went to sleep. The breakfast served was very decent, and it made my stay feel much better. Overall, you do get what you paid for.
It is nice, clean and budget hotel. The property located in handy location. A metro station and airport buses terminal are only 10 mins walk away. Breakfast is hefty with so many choices. WiFi is free and works fine. The hookers standing outside the hotel area neither bother me at all and nor did I bother to them. No safety concerns are noticed. Staff is very delightful and helpful. Since hotel is located inside a small street, people didn't know much about it. So be prepared well to know the walking directions from Metro station. I faced this problem.
Do not expect much - hotel is a clean, decent property in good location. I've chosen it because of vicinity to Airport bus station. It was a nice surprise to have one of Oscar Niemeyer's masterpieces in walking distance! Edificio Italia was also 2 minutes from hotel. Restaurant tip - some 150 meters from hotel is Estrela da Ipiranga a restaurant worth visiting. Very good and tasteful food, abundant portions and affordable prices. Reception staff could use a couple of English lessons :-)))
One of the best hotels in são Paulo at this price range. Very clean, it has even toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathroom. The neighborhood can be a little disturbing for those who don't know it, but don't worry.
