For nearly two decades from its inauguration in 1954, the Jaraguá was considered São Paulo´s best hotel. The building formerly housed the country´s leading newspaper “O Estado de S. Paulo.”
The hotel became run down & changed hands several times until it was taken over by Accor & labeled Novotel. We spent a weekend in São Paulo visiting museums & attending a concert at Sala São Paulo. The location of the Jaraguá is ideal for this purpose, near the metro & a short cab ride from the concert hall. Rua Avanhadava with several good Mancini restaurants is a five mnute walk from the Jaraguá.
Our room was sizeable with comfortable beds. The bathroom was also big with lots of hot water & hooks to hang things. WiFi was free although parking & breakfast are extra.
The best option in the center of São Paulo, in my opinion.More
