“Old but clean room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

The hotel is located in Liberdade, the Japanese (Oriental) town and security in this area almost is safe. There are many Japanese restaurant which is relatively more expensive than other Brazilian restaurants, but the taste is very good and the same as original Japanese food. Hotel is 5 minutes walk from subway station and is close to the city center.

Room and furniture is relatively old however it is clean. Bath is so big that you can relax in bath, Room Rate for twin room is around 200 BRL and it is so reasonable compared with relatively expensive rooms in SP.

The breakfest is horrible, very poor. Breads are old and taste very bad. Fruits smell like fish. There is no toaster or anything like it. I decided not to take breakfest in the hotel, I´d rather paying for it separetely.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2009

I recently stayed a 1-night transit in SP, and I wanted an "exotic" and original place... an hotel in Liberdade, the Japanese neighbourhood, was perfect!

I found this hotel in the Lonely Planet, and booked through their website. I got a rate of 185 BRL (ca 65 EUR) for a single room, including breakfast.

The environment
Right in the middle of Liberdade, this place seems safe. 5 minutes walk from the metro, and not far from the city center. As SP is a huge city, you should be careful while choosing a neighbourhood for a stay in this city.

The lobby / staff
Once you enter the lobby, you immediately feel an asian atmosphere from the 60's.
The staff speaks good English (which is quite rare in Brasil), and is efficient and friendly.
Free Internet is available in the lobby (but not in the room)

The room
The room has the same old fashioned atmosphere than in the lobby, which makes its charm. The room itself was quite large, very clean. The bed was comfortable. The Japanese atmosphere can also be seen on the TV channels!
The bathroom featured a large tub that is so deep that you feel like in a spa! I must admit the bathroom would maybe need a refresh (but it remains clean).

The restaurant
There is a very good Japanese restaurant in the basement, where they also serve an acceptable breakfast (both Japanese and continental buffet).

The bar
There is a tiny karaoke bar in the lobby, crowded by Brasilian-Japanese young people.

There is also a sauna where they provide massages, but I did not have time to test it.

Finally, looking for an alternative- but clean and safe place in SP, it was a very good choice.
