“Great choice for São Paulo”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We had a great sized suite at this hotel which was tidy, freshly decorated and very comfortable. I was really surprised by this property and would recommend it to anyone.

The bar/restaurant on the ground floor was great, with live music and although we never made it to the complimentary breakfast (too early!!), I heard another guest talking about how nice it was.

Jump in a taxi and head for Vila Madelina - the best area for bars and drinks in SP.

The area the hotel is located in is OK, but there seemed to be lots of 'night ladies' in the area at night, so be wary.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with friends

Reviewed 4 May 2014

This hotel is pretty much in the heart of SaoPaulo. Metro and the airport bus stop are in walking distance. Breakfast is OK but nothing exceptional. Front desk speaks very poor english. Internet is a nightmare, they charge 10 US a day and its slow in the rooms (or does not work).
Neighbourhood is not the greatest but save for experienced latin america travelers.

Overall it is a good value.

I always travel in latin american countries. Its the first time staying in Sao Paulo.
I stayed by coincedence in San Raphael hotel

Its very good located...good attencion ..clean ...organized...but always there is a but...jaja..if you want to enter in the Wifi ..at least you have to be a hacker.!!!
They ask you to make a phone call to the company that operates the system ..then you have to register your name ..then your room number and then you have to enter the browser .....and then i hung up and dont use their wifi..and spend my data of the red VIVO...
Well i dont understand ..why such a basic but simple nesecity of a guest of this hotel ..should be so complicate and finally not accesible...probably you must be a friend with San Raphael...haha!
Thats the only dark spot of my staying in this hotel...i hope they will fix it ...

I stayed in the hotel last year and it was very nice. The hotel is in the center of Sao Paulo city. It's a simple hotel, however very clean. The staff are helpful and very friendly. The breakfast is great - I have nothing to complain about it. Fresh juices, fruits and pastries. For sure will be staying there again on my next visit to Sao Paulo.

Very outdated, single beds which my wife hated. TV very old and outdated. A/C worked but no controls to make it stronger.
Restaurant was sufficient but expensive.
Internet $10 per day.
Very central and safe area.
