The real challenge in Sao Paulo is to find a good value deal. All hotels I have tried in Sao Paulo, be they expensive or “budget”, have not lived up to an acceptable cost-benefit threshold. So I am on a mission to find a real value leader. I will review a series of “budget” hotels in the popular Itaim region... More

Good and reasonable priced hotel (on weekends) located within walking distance from Iguatemi Shopping Mall, one of the best in town. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, nice pool area although there's no direct sunlight before 11 am and after 16 pm. The hotel offers a free ride (minivan) to the surrounding area "Itaim", but you'll have to ask the reception in... More

This is a great hotel, with everything that you need :) I can't speak a word of Portuguese and they go out of their way to understand my questions. Others understand and speak English perfectly and are so willing to assist. Good location with plenty of close restaurant's in walking distance.

A bit oldish, being repainted right now. Rooms are actually suites, with a small kitchen, sink, microwave, etc. Breakfast below 6€. Not huge choice, but some fruit, cereal, different breads, pankakes, yoghourts, etc. In summary, good value for money.

Have stayed in this hotel already back in 1996, and then later in 2003 and 2006. Last month spent 10 days there with my wife. It was really pleasant to realize that the prices in this modest hotel are still reasonable in a city where prices jumped in 7 years between three to five times! It is superbly located in... More

This was my first time in Sao Paolo (on business) and the hotel was selected by my company. The choice proved to be a very good choice if you want a less hectic environment than is common in Sao Paolo. There are dozens of good restaurants that are in walking distance, in a good area of the city. The hotel... More

We have booked this hotel to be able to work, but the internet was for most of the time or going very slowly (downloading a simple e-mail for 5-10 minutes) or not connected at all. At arrival we have been asked to provide personal card even thought our agent gave its card as guarantee and mean of payment. Otherwise the... More
