“Just super great ”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Pousada dos franceses is a welcome stay for everyone. All the staff is very friendly and helpfull. They all speak in good english! Which was a big asset for us to get information and directions from the pousada to go around the city. Because only few people speak in english in Sao Paolo. The pousada is situated in a very safe area! No need to worry about your belongings in the hotel aswell. The pousada have good wifi and is a very clean place. Breakfast is simple but enough to wake you up :) Special thanks goes to Sofia, the morning receptionist which everyday took care of us with the maps at the reception :)

great location, friendly staff, good atmosphere, great breakfast. nothing the to complain about given the low prices. but don't stay here if you not prepared to get up early. It gets pretty noisy at 6h30.

We stayed here in August 2013. The location was good, with Avenue Paulista within walking distance, for access to the underground/MASP etc. It's also close to to the Japanese district Liberdade, getting a taxi there at night was pretty inexpensive. the room was decent, very clean, big bed and shower. They only issue was that we were there in winter (day time max temps about 18C), and the room was pretty cold at night. There were extra blankets though, so not much of a problem.
The guys on reception were great, they booked a few taxis for us, and gave us advice on what to do on our last day. One of them managed to direct me across the city to the location of an awesome mortadello sandwich, and then followed it up by getting the liverpool game on sky for me. Top man. They were the best staff we encountered during a month in Brazil i think. Breakfast was also good, really good coffee and cake.

Located in a very nice neiborhood of BellaVista and just 10 minute walk to Avenue Paulista and 15 minute walk to the Centro. The Pousada area looks very bright and clean, great breakfast and common area. The staff are very nice especially Alberto, so lovely and helpful. Muito Obrigado!

Loved it here. My group stayed here for three weeks while we worked on a project in Sao Paulo and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The staff was by far the best part. They even made one of our girls a birthday cake and had a Brazilian BBQ for us our last night--one of my favorite memories from my trip. Aside from a great staff it also had a lot of areas to hangout--the outdoor patio being my favorite spot. Breakfast was also great and coffee all day long--what else could you ask for? I would highly recommend it and hope to stay there again someday!

I stayed for 3 nights in April and I just have grateful words for the people in this Pousada. It´s like a home away from home. Everybody was really nice. I stayed in a private bedroom. It was simple but clean. Very quiet to sleep at night, just what I needed for the price. No A/C but the fan worked just great. The breakfast was very complete (coffee, tea, fruits, cakes, bread, ham n cheese, ...). The location was really good too (10 minutes walk to Av. Paulista). And very important, it felt like a safe neightbourhood! The free wifi in the lobby area worked perfect. I would recommend this place. Staff really helpful, they got me a blowdryer and lent me an umbrella when I needed. I stayed in a room upstairs (don´t remember the #) but there was no noise nor odors. The only that would be good is to have a toaster for breakfast and a blowdryer to lend to guests. Thanks again! Muito Obrigada!! Gracias!!!
