Great location, just a few blocks from the Republica Metro Station. Clean and helpful staff. No problems at all. You have to pay 7 reais for the breakfast - simple but ok.

Reviewed January 27, 2008

If you're looking for a clean and descent place to stay without all the bells and whistles and on a budget, this is the best option in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. There are four Formule 1 Hotels in SP and one in Rio, and they are all exactly the same to each other. We've stayed in the Centro and Jardins in SP and the one in Rio. All rooms can accommodate up to 3 people for the same price utilizing bunk beds. A queen bed on bottom and a twin on top.

The room is small but has the basics. There is no mini-fridge or telephone though. And the only weird thing to be aware about is that the shower is basically in the same room as the bedroom. The only thing separating your naked body from other people in your room is a frosted glass door. (See pics). But that can be mostly resolved by hanging your towel over the door to cover it.

Both breakfast and parking cost extra. The breakfast is a good, normal continental breakfast. It only costs R$ 5 (~U$ 2.50). And we were able to do without parking since the hotels are generally in good locations near Metro stops, business centers, and tourist places.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I had no problem making my reservation though their web site for any of the three times I've booked a room.
