I have stayed at Maraba on several occasions while doing business in São Paulo and I don't have much to complain. The neighborhood is not the nicest especially at night and there are masses of homeless people in the area. I wouldn't wander around after 9-10pm without a local guide who knows where to go and not to go. The... More

I knew that this classic old downtown hotel had been renovated completely about 18 months ago so when I needed a place to stay in the city centre I booked it. I used booking.com to make my booking and specified that I wanted wi-fi internet, car parking, and I noted that the room would be available from noon. When I... More

If you want to experience the historical centre of Sao Paulo, the Maraba hotel was certainly a nice choice. I thought the area around the hotel was very safe. Dont worry! The rooms are very small, but functional. We stayed there for two nights and then flew to Rio.

Staff here are very friendly and correct. We also managed to get a price of 260 Rais per night, which was below internet price (around 300) and way below standard price (420 rais). The hotel is great for a walk around the old town, which today is more of a dystopia (read Gotham city), but which used to be one... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The staff were extremely warm and friendly upon our arrival. Check in was a breeze even though neither of us speaks Portuguese. The room was very contemporary and modern. Would definitely stay here again.

Finding comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation with a decent level of service in Sao Paulo is becoming a challenge. This place is relatively new (a renovation of a near derelict property), and if it continues in the way it is being run it could be well worth considering. Rooms, well, OK, my room! - was a decent size, well set... More

We have stayed there one night during a business trip. We have a very pleasant stay in a very confortable room. Good service and a very good breakfast also. I would recomend this hotel for all businees travellers in Sao Paulo.

We stayed two non consecutive nights at this hotel as part of a group trip. The hotel is located in the downtown area. The Hotel was recently renovated to a very modern décor. Although this location is considered a central location we never had the opportunity to experience it. What we did experience was the doorman’s anxiety that we should... More
