If you are looking for a modern hotel do not go to the Gran Corona.
This hotel is old style, vintage, but this is its charm.
The rooms are showing their age, but they are clean and comfortable, breakfast is good (although a bit repetitive ), the restaurant is good, and in fact known in the area. The WiFi line works well in all rooms and in the lounge.
The hotel is located a stone's throw from Praza da Republica, which means that the subway gets you quickly to other parts of the city. On this square every Sunday morning is a nice market where they sell all kinds of typical Brazilian artifacts.
I've used this hotel for many years, I go to Sao Paolo at least three times every year for my job, and I always come back here because the staff is very helpful and friendly, it's nice to get there and feel welcome with your name and a warm handshake (or with a pat on the back, in the Brazilian manner).
I know the staff, always willing to help (you have spotted a dress? Do you need the room to be made up at particular times? Need any directions to a store? ... ).
Just outside you will find typical restaurants and shops, the area is not the best in town, this is not a tourist area, but it is safe and dangerous like the rest of the city, while here you can savor the true Sao Paulo.

Room tip: don't forget to ask for room with double bed!

Friendly Staff. Comfortable. Rooms a little dated but sufficient. Good Location for visiting everything in Sao Paulo, Everyone seems to complain about the area being unsafe?, however it is no less unsafe than any other city in the world, as long as you do not advertise that you are a Tourist and you walk around in a group or not less that 2 people after hours, all is fine.
Breakfast is sufficient but eggs to order would be great.

Old and tired hotel, no upgrades were made for the last 30 - 35 years... It is definitely not a 4 star hotel, but rather 2/ max 3 stars. We were not provided even with the shampoo (for the suites only...seriously). Very uncomfortable bed. Crib for the baby was old and smelled like urine. Not recommended at all

I stayed on this Hotel on the first week of March, The location is excellent if you want to reach everything from the downtown, the Republica Metro is near, and the rooms are confortable.
One thing that they have to fix is the Wi-fi conection, on the room 404 I couldn't conect my hole stay, They told me the first day that they will fix it, but until I leave the hotel the problem persist.
Great Breakfast buffet, I will recommend this Hotel if they fix the WI-Fi.
