In case you have to do business in Liberdade or Sé, this is the place to stay. If you love Japonese food, this place is a must be! The room was a bit worn out and the TV was too old. The property certainly needs to be refurbished.

It looks like the hotel has been recently renovated - the rooms were spacious, clean and furnished with a mini-fridge. The Japanese style breakfast was great and there's also a western style breakfast option. There's a sauna in the hotel (costs R$ 40) and a small karaoke bar open till late with super friendly staff. My only complaint would be... More

A Japanese Style hotel, old but well keeped, clean, clean carpets and corridors. Rooms quite big, towels clean in plastic bags, straight from laundry. Two kind of breakfast, Brazilian and Japanese style. The area (Liberdade) is inhabited mostly by Japanese, Korean and Chinese, a bit like staying in ChinaTown. Not far away from a metro station, plenty of oriental restaurants... More

I booked this hotel at short notice during the World Cup and I was very happy with the choice, given the economical price. If you like anything Japanese, the location is excellent with Japanese food that's almost and very close to authentic Japanese quality. 10 minutes in a taxi to Paulista Avenue and 20 minutes to Vila Madalena. The hotel... More

Very disappointed in this hotel, booked for specific reasons, and they failed to deliver. Could not speak English - despite saying could. Wifi did not work in room - they said it would. Self service Breakfast was never replaced when empty. Bed was poor.

Old building, with no acoustic isolation. If you have to wake up early anyway, it can be a decent option in Liberdade, otherwise try to avoid it. Rooms have been renovated, so they don't have the characteristic smell of old carpet. Mattress are small and not comfortable.

We stayed one night in this quite old hotel. We actually enjoyed the 70´s style of the furniture in our room, which was clean. The reception people were very friendly and helpful. We had a smooking room, which is difficult to get nowadays in São Paulo (and elsewhere in the world). The best of the hotel is the location in... More

The hotel is located in Liberdade, the Japanese (Oriental) town and security in this area almost is safe. There are many Japanese restaurant which is relatively more expensive than other Brazilian restaurants, but the taste is very good and the same as original Japanese food. Hotel is 5 minutes walk from subway station and is close to the city center.... More

The breakfest is horrible, very poor. Breads are old and taste very bad. Fruits smell like fish. There is no toaster or anything like it. I decided not to take breakfest in the hotel, I´d rather paying for it separetely.

Staying in Liberdade

Neighborhood Profile
Liberdade
As the largest Japanese community outside of Japan, Liberdade offers a variety of shops with Asian products and restaurants with diverse Asian cuisines. Liberdade is a world unto its own - you may forget you are in São Paulo. The streets are decorated with red lamps and there are various markets. On the weekends, there is a great street fair at Liberdade Square, starting right by the subway entrance. The Oriental Garden and the Busshinji Temple are beautiful spots to visit, and if you want to learn more about Japanese culture and immigration to Brazil, stop by the Museum of Japanese Immigration.
