Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stayed here three nights. The hotel is very clean and the rooms and bathrooms are large. Only eight rooms per floor, so smallish hotel. Well managed. Breakfast was a big buffet with lots of fruit and breads. The location is both good and bad. Good because it is right in Koreatown, which we loved, and also at lovely Luz Park. One block to Luz station and metro and several fabulous museums. Bad because after dark, like much of the city, is not particularly safe. Roller doors close everywhere and the streets are spooky. Gym and pool are tiny - don't waste your time.

For r200/night with free valet parking and breakfast, you can't beat it. Use taxis to get around after dark.

The Shanghai Korean Chinese restaurant one block away has excellent food at reasonable prices as well. We went twice!

Stayed: November 2013, traveled as a couple

I stayed here on a trip to visit old friends. This is an amazing hotel. I enjoyed the location. (Don't let other entries fool you - while this might be an older part of town I had no trouble at all in this area). I enjoyed the richness of the surrounding area. The local atmosphere was great and there were great locations to eat. The hotel was very comfortable and the attendance at the front desk were very helpful to me. I would stay here again and plan to in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the park side of the hotel. Nice view at night of the train station, etc.

If you are staying on the north side of Sao Paulo, where there are not many choices, this hotel offers very clean and comfortable rooms. I travel on biz 50% of the time with limited budget and this is place to stay. It is located within the "rag district" so most guests are women. Rag trade is clothing for the novices.
