“An unexpected suprise”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Ok, first of all, the hotel looks AWFUL when you approach it. The entrance is this weird subway looking ramp with a dirty mirror and a plant. The reception area is dreary but the receptionist is experienced and friendly (the experienced part is tough to find in Brazil), so the confidence started to build a little there. I was initially given a room upstairs, which was really small with a tiny window and a lovely view of a wall. The wireless internet connection is good and free, so I just used my laptop until I fainted. The next day I asked for another room, which was a huge improvement although the view was still non-existent. No problem, views are rare in SP budget hotels. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and there was not that much noise. I slept soundly the three nights I was there. The pleasant surprise came in the morning, with the breakfast. Much better than the lousy stuff offered in an Ibis Budget, for example, and its included in the price. In summary, if they invest on a nicer reception, this hotel is a great find in the centre of SP, right at the end of the Paulista, 2 blocks from the Paulista shopping centre. I definitely recommend it if you need a place to crash, have little money and appreciate good service, free internet and a good breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for the downstairs rooms. They are larger.

We stayed at Hotel Estacao Paraiso for a couple of nights while I was in Sao Paulo and it was definitely disappointing. The only good thing is location, it's right in front of Paraiso metro station and it's pretty close to some nice places in vlla madalena and paulista avenue. The room was small, stinky and very dirty (we found old cream crackers under the bed). The walls are very thin and I could hear people walking, talking and maybe breathing. One of the front desk girls was very rude and did not want to help us with some touristic information. You know what, there's a hotel right across the street called Formule One, stay there (just like we did next time we went to Sao Paulo), it's also cheap (not as cheap as estacao paraiso hotel, but worthy enough) and clean.

I was lucky to find out about hotel Estação Paraíso when looking for budget but decent accomodation in São Paulo. It looks rough from the outside - an old mansion squeezed between one of Metro Paraíso's station exits and a local "boteco" (Brazilian casual urban bar) - but the positive reviews I found when googling it encouraged me to give it a go.

My room was clean but strictly basic (no fancy tvs or decoration, but they do have free wi-fi) and tiny (especially the toilet/shower room), so bigger people might feel uncomfortable. There was some noise from cleaning staff working in the rooms, but it stopped after I made a complaint at the reception. Breakfast was simple but tasty and generous.

The best thing about this hotel is its location: you're next to Paraiso Metro station, which will take you anywhere in central Sao Paulo in no more than 15 minutes. There is also a registered taxi station in front of the hotel, which is highly convenient when going out at night or to areas not covered by the metro system. The Paraíso area is very commercial, full of cheap good eats and close to fancier stores/shopping centres, giving you plenty of choice.

Overall, I consider it a find, as it saved me about 40% compared to similar accomodation in the area. It allowed me to tour for a few days in São Paulo in a cheap, easy and relaxing way.

Room Tip: If booking again I'll ask for quieter rooms - the ones which don't get too much noise from t...
