While this hotel has lost its former glory, one can still see that it was once a 4-star hotel. The staff were extremely professional, particularly in the restaurant. They were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with yummy scrambled eggs, fresh and sweet fruit and other good variety of selections. The location was the reason why I chose...

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... More

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...

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

ok, the hotel is not new, but certainly in good condition, in an excellent location, 150 yards from Republica Metro and our 11th floor room was absolutely clean, new large bathroom and very comfortable large living area something "new" hotels would charge 3 times as much for . Anything comparable we looked at in the area cost 50 to 80%... More

I don't think we will be in Sao Paulo again , not a lot to do or see, just happened to have an... More

No hesitation in recommending this hotel which is perfectly located 1 minute from Praca da Republica. The metro station is that same one minute away and the stop for the airport bus is just 4 minutes away on the other side of the square. Everything was just so easy. Thanks to the location of the Gran Corona, we arrived via... More

This is practically a hotel with a very good location. During my first day I just walked for 15-20mins to Praca Da Se (Catedral Metropolitana) and Liberdade (Japanese quarters). The next day I also walked to the area where Edificio de Altino Arantes is located. The hotel is also just near the metro station of Republica which I took in... More
