I'd love to say just "weak", but it wouldn't be a proper review. The place is inexpensive to get in, but inside it is....cheap. I wouldn't recommend even to the most football fanatics.

Staying in Pacaembu

Neighborhood Profile
Pacaembu
Highlights of this neighborhood include Pacaembu Stadium and the Museum of Soccer, but they are not the only attractions it offers. Street markets are part of São Paulo’s culture, and at Charles Miller Square you will find one of the city's best. Arrive early to be delighted by fresh fruits, vegetables, coconut water and “pastel”, fried dough filled with innumerable options including cheese, meat, and shrimp. If you are into architecture, don’t miss Casa Modernista and Casa Buarque de Holanda, two historic houses. The small residential streets along Pacaembu offer quiet refuge from the chaotic traffic.
