Sao Paulo for World Cup Semi-finals

Hello everyone,

We're gonna be in São Paulo for 4 days; we arrive on Tuesday, we have tickets for Wednesday's game and we leave for Brasilia on Friday.

Someone recommended the Leques hotel which is apparently close to the Fan Fest and a metro ride to the stadium.

Any other suggestions? Thanks!

it is an ok choice, but not where most tourists choose to stay.

SP has not been hit with crazy hotel prices for most WC matches...

if that is also the case for semifinal match, you can probably get a room in much nicer areas of town and still be close to subway to get to stadium... that has been discussed extensively in threads like this one:


FanFest area is not exactly in most attractive part of town either. many locals have chosen to watch matches in Vila Madalena area instead (but VM has few lodging options other than hostels).

I agree with Rokatoo. Fan Fest in SP is not very interesting here in SP. The fans are all getting together in Vila Madalena.

For staying, i would advice the Paulista region (jardins), where you have many options of things to do, stores, restaurants, bars, pubs etc.

Hi, there is a very nice Hostel.

Pousada dos franceses! It´s very good one. It´s near Fan Fest
