This is an inexpensive, basic hotel that fills that role very well. Located off the beaten path in Liberdade, the hotel staff are friendly and most speak English, particularly the reception desk staff. The rooms are very basic: indoor-outdoor carpeting that is stained; very firm bed with basic sheets; individual ventilation unit that works well; good water pressure and reliable hot water; WiFi that is free and mostly reliable but with slow speeds; and in-room safe. My room did have a stench of stale urine from the bathroom when I walked in the door but this did not seem to reach the bedroom. Breakfast is free but is also basic: decent coffee, scrambled eggs that include the occasional egg shell, a toaster that is slow and only toasts one side of the bread, and some other breads along with fruit, cheese, and breakfast meats. Electricity went out twice in one day while I was there. The deficiencies would have bothered me more except that this hotel is inexpensive and is aiming to just be a good, basic hotel so my expectations were low. In this role, it succeeds and thus gets four stars.

Great location, 1 block from subway station, walk distance to the traditional japanese neighborhood Liberdade. Very comfortable room, clean, quiet. Satisfying breakfast. Great cost benefit for business trip

The hotel is situated in Liberdade, the Japanese area in Sao Paulo. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area. The staff is amazing helpful even though the majority doesn't speak English. Every time we got what we wanted with a smile. Rooms are spacious, we had a kingsize bed and slept well, bathroom is well equipped with an amazing shower. After reading a lot of reviews about several hotels on the internet we were happily surprised when we entered the room. It was bigger, the bathroom was spacious and we had a hairdryer. The food in this hotel is very good and the breakfast is just awesome. Several kinds of bread rolls, toppings, fresh fruits, fresh juices, sweets and tapioca. We definitely would go back to this hotel.

The hotel situated in the Asian district of São Paulo. It has very friendly and attentive staff. The lunch buffet is good food, for 37R pp. the rooms are clean and big enough with decent size bathrooms. It is very close to São Jauquim metro. And liberdade is only a short walk up the road. There is a good laundrette opposite that has a next day service and is per kilo.
I would recommend this hotel.

The "surprisingly good" thing about this hotel is the quality of the accommodation and the services compared to the area where it is located. Liberdade is a very popular, shopping neighborhood (originally founded and populated by Japanese immigrants), but it is unfortunately becoming a filthy spot in Sao Paulo. Leques is not the kind of hotel you would expect to find here: modern, clean, excellent staff and food... And the fares are affordable. I liked it and strongly recommend it.
