In a nutshell: Stayed here for a night, no major complaints. If you get it at a great price and aren't fussy, no problem. Most of the recent reviews seem correct. Instead of a costly cab ride from the airport you can take the airport bus for R40 as I did and walk from Praca da Republica stop for a... More

We spent 3 nights there. Check-In was not that easy because the receptionist didn't speak english. Unfortunately the cleaning service wasn't too thoroughly. The dental floss from the previous guest stayed with us all 3 nights... The room was very roomy and the hotel is located close to a metro station.

The location is good, the room is really dated and old. However, it is clean and does the job. For the price I reckon can't expect much more. Good and efficient staff who speak English which is very handy.

We booked this hotel with airmiles and it is situated apparently in downtown SP. Extremely clean, helpful staff although as non portugese speakers did struggle a bit, and great buffet breakfast. SP is a confusing, expensive, and at times a city you wouldn't want to walk round on your own. Can't fault the hotel itself except could do with some... More

Very good quality for the price paid, even thought being Sao Paolo. I paid twice in other points of Brazil and got something worse. Very decent, good quality, roomy and clean indoors. Extremely helpful staff. Surprisingly good experience for being Sao Paolo.

You're in Sao Paulo, and you're on a bit of a budget. You want a central location, in the thick of things, with lots of locals and their shops and restaurants around. In the surronding area, you don't mind a little filth, and a slight hint of potential danger (but just slight, and after all, danger is Sao Paulo's leitmotif).... More

I was in this hotel during my very first trip to Sao Paulo. The room in my opinion looked a bit amateurish, the beds were small & the air conditioner did NOT work at all. I will admit that it was clean, was near the subways & buses & the room was in fact cheap. And as long as the... More

I stayed for several nights as an independent traveller in this hotel in November and found it to be a good choice, one room for two nights on arrival in the country and a different room for my last night before departing several weeks later, both were fine. The Hotel is in the centre of Sao Paulo and within easy... More
