Basic, but very nice; good breakfast, extremely clean, helpful staff (we speak portuguese, so we do not know how much they deal with english speakers...). Centrally located, at a walking distance of major historic attractions. But the street itself where it looks a bit awful, specially at night, were is empty and shops closed. Old downtown in SAO, as in may Latin American cities, must look awful at night. So you must have to be cautious. But, in our experience, the look is worse than the actual experience. There is a Subway station very close, and you can reach it easily from the airport, combining two lines. Regarding the hotel itself, wifi does not properly work sometimes, but the staff is friendly. In all, I have returned many times, and will continue to return.

It is a good option for a few days at São Paulo. Well localized at downtown. Near from cultural centers and restaurants. Please Choose the Room with window far from air conditioned equipment (because that room is so noisy)

The hotel is centrally located in a nice pedestrian street with plenty of shops, restaurants and stalls. Very few foreign tourists in the area (in three days I only saw one Japanese tourist). The area seemed OK safe for me. Plenty of armed police around. Convenient location if you're coming from the GRU airport. Get off at the Republica plaza and walk to the opposite corner of the plaza and you're almost there. Room was fine. Fine bed, a table, two chairs, wardrobe, space adequate, poorly lit bathroom. Cold water only .. probably my own fault; couldn't figure out how to switch on the hot water. Quite strong, continious noise from some engines outside in the backyard. A bit annoying. But closing the window it didn't ruin my sleep. Breakfast (0700-1000) was quite all right but nothing special. WiFi worked fine. No one in the reception speak English.

Spent 2 nights at the Joamar, and that was enough for me. I will say the it was not the hotel’s fault, it’s just that the area it is in is not one I would want to return to. The hotel itself was good. It was a good price, very clean, super friendly staff and decent breakfast. The area though was rough, and even the front desk clerk warned us not to bring our bags with us and to just tuck our money down our shirts. During the day it was ok, but as soon as it starts getting dark, it seems like the whole area changes into somewhere I don’t want to be around. Too bad as the hotel really was good.

Perfectly adequate little hotel about two blocks from the Galeria do Rock. Getting a cab for an early Sunday morning flight turned out to be harder than expected, but no complaints otherwise. I would stay there again if we make it back to SP.

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at Joamar - great location, nice and cosy room, friendly staff. I could really recommend it to anyone searching a rather cheap but qualitative stay in Sao Paulo! I didn't even have any bad expierience with the surrounding area, so I cannot confirm some of the previous postings.

Stayed at this hotel three times and it's always been great. It's close to the subway, but the surroundings are not the best - it's dangerous to wakl around at night. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with mini fridge and TV. Breakfast was good. The only problem I had on the last time I stayed at the hotel was the reservation - they booked a room for the wrong day, so when I got there, there was no reservation. The hotel had avalable rooms, so the problem was solved. It's just better to reconfirm.

The hotel itself was great for the price, not exactly high end but luxury for a couple of backpackers! Nice buffet breakfast. The area is a pedestrian shopping street, a bit dodgy and seedy after dark, theres lots of sex shops and stalls and plenty of shady people wandering round. It's no real reason not to stay there just don't take valuables out and keep your wits about you and you'll be fine, we didn't have any troubles. Wouldn't stay there for more than a few days though.

The attractive facade to the building belies a rather plan, no frills interior but the rooms are clean, the breakfast plentiful, if uneventful, and the price and the location - close to the Praca de Republica (with the underground, airport bus office and excellent Sunday market - miles better than anything Rio has to offer) - can't be beaten. The area feels a little dodgy after dark but actually puts me in mind of the rough end of Oxford St (by Tottenham Court Road tube) i.e. it's not that bad and on one occasion we were advised by two mendigos (street people) to take care of our bag, which just goes to show how you shouldn't judge people by apprearances.
