“No good or bad surprises”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

You get what you expect and pay for with the Bourbon. The location is practically slap bang in the middle of Sao Paulo in the old centre which is a short walk to a metro station with connections to everywhere in Sao Paulo. There's also a bus station about 200 metres away with buses to both airports. The one problem is that Republica is a rough area and I would not feel safe walking through alone if it wasn't the World Cup and was so highly policed.

clean hotel but cant be classified as 4 stars. it can be good 3 stars standard as too many facilities are missing. no swimming pool and poor room service, the problem that when we arrived after midnight we found no one at all speaks English. which is a must for hotel call itself business hotel I asked in the morning for iron and stand to iron my shirts after getting them out of the bag and they informed me that they don't have this facility and I should send it to the laundry. all hotel i have visited before either 4* or 5* they do have this service and even you don't need to ask for it as it is available at the room. the breakfast is good but average and not 4* standard, I can accept it from 3* hotel but not 4*. they have free WiFi and small fitness center.

Dear mister abumoo,
Thanks for your willingness to evaluate the Bourbon Sao Paulo on TripAdvisor.
We would like to apologize for not being serviced in English, we have only one employee at nighttime with fluency in the language, and we will hire more. About iron, we own ironing service, which is safer for everyone, so do not provide the unit for guests.
We hope to host it again.
 Regards,
Wilson Neto, General Manager.

Great old hotel in wonderful shape in the "centro"- great deals on the weekend. wonderful comp breakfast. It survived the down times of the centro, and now that the neighborhood's on the way back up with many more people starting to live there again, the hotel will be even better. Fun to do the folkart and crafts market on the Praca da Republica on the weekends.

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

This is a centrally located hotel at Sao Paulo. The room is ok but the ones near the street level will be very noisy. Subway station is near (2 blocks). The breakfast and restaurant are good with many options. At night the neighborhood is not safe.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on lower levels and looking the street (noisy)

Its centrally located at Sao Paulo. Metro is just walking distance. Breakfast was fine with ample varieties. Room was okay but tiny a bit cramped.
At night the neighborhood doesn't feel safe. We were there during the weekdays, wouldn't have picked this hotel if we were to go during weekends.
Staff doesn't speak much of english but it is everywhere in Brazil.

The thing is, I checked in this hotel unadviced. First of all, I should've paid more atention to it's name: "business". So, if you are a tourist avoid. It gets rough at night time. OK, my bad. But once inside, I figured that's not quite a 3star hotel and the location is awful. The rooms seem old, although clean, but the beds are bad, small and tough. Not coming back.
