Locals may not know Vila Buarque by name, but they are surely aware of the neighbourhood's landmarks and uniqueness. Rua Maria Antonia is a classic college area, where students hang out in the many pubs. Nearby you will find two important cultural centres: SENAC and SESC Consolação. They offer a variety of affordable classes, plays, concerts and recreation activities. Vila Buarque is home to the Santa Casa Hospital, an important institution in the city with an amazing architecture. A few blocks away from the hospital, visitors can find karaoke bars and Santa Cecilia Church.
Minhocao is great on weekends when it is closed for traffic. It has about 3km of extension ehre you can walk, ride a bike, jog or do some skating. It's located near downtown Sao Paulo and runs in the middle of old buildings. Nowadays you can also appreciate some great graffiti and some vertical gardens, hanging on the side of...

I asked for the “original” burguer and it was spectacular! Tasty and really amazing!
For dessert we asked for a pudding and a cheesecake. The pudding had a...
Cosi is a very good surprise in a not so good neighborhood. The food is really good, with classic Italian dishes and also some innovations. Chef Renato Carione is very competent and suggests very tasty and different specials every single day.
I would say that Jardim de Napoli has the best polpetone in São Paulo, The cheese melts inside it the and the tomato sauce and meat are delicious. With pasta or salad, don't miss to try it. The original restaurant is also very close to the standard in the shopping higienopolis mall.
If you visit Brazil then you must visit a churrascaria (Brazil steak house) unless you are vegetarian , this is excellent choice and I loved the steak and the atmosphere, the only downside is the location as the area is more on the dodgy side
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...
I usually stay at Hotel Dan when I am in São Paulo. The rates are economical and the hotel is comfortable and safe. There is access to good public transportation and many fine restaurants in the neighboorhood. The breakfast is excellent and the staff is polite and courteous.
