Hotel is a bit dated and very basic but the location is great. The street it's on is left to be desired but you are a half block from a major road - São Joao and a block and a half from the metro. Breakfast is also really good. Bathroom could use an upgrade but the water pressure and temperature are amazing. Wifi is hit and miss but definitely cannot support Skype. Most staff don't speak any English.

Soneca Plaza is a small hotel just minutes away from Republica metro station. The rooms are small but clean and tidy. Breakfast is on time everyday and is pretty good. The staff in the restaurant, reception and housekeeping are very friendly and helpful though most do not speak or understand a word of english - they would google translate and get to help you in the end.

The owner of the hotel Mr. Fernando is very helpful and friendly.

Overall a very nice and clean place to stay at when you are in Sao Paulo.

This Hotel is convenientlly located in downtown São Paulo City with three blocks from Metro Station to get every place in the city. Also, is very close to one of the most traditional Bars in Sao Paulo over years : Bar Brahma, where they serve a wonderfull Brahma Chopp and it is also posible to have live music. The rooms are confortable with all necessary to have a good night.
the rooms located in the back of hotel is best for silence and avoid street noise.
The Hotel no have a Business Center and this is a negatitve comment for this Hotel, however they have a free WiFi along the Hotel.

This hotel is one of the hook up places rented out for an hour or two to people in need.
The location was away from the centre in a not so nice neighbourhood.
Small and dark rooms. You can hear the activities of the neighbours next door.
Personnel did not speack any English, so hard to find your way around.
Breakfast was a joke.
Not recommendable at all.

Good service with thoughtful staff. But do not expect an incredible room by amount paid. The strong point is the location, close to metro (Republic - red line) and many others points of interest, in the heart of the city.

The hotel is conveniently located near to Praça da República. The room was clean, beds comfortable. The stuff is friendly and always trying to help but not very knowledgeable. Breakfast is good, a lot of fruits. I would stay there once again.

The hotel is in the center, has an excellent position. However, hygiene and the dilapidation of the hotel pay their price. If you are on the budget it is good for 3 nights. At night there is too many suspicious people, but also a policeman on every corner.

Took a taxi from GRU and was only R$115. Not bad for a 40 minute cab ride. Upon arrival to the hotel, the staff was very friendly and all smiles. The front desk staff didn't speak much English, but what can you expect from a country that primarily speaks Portuguese? They tried their best to communicate, were patient with the language barrier, and even used google translate's spoken app to try even further. The second day, there was a member of the front desk staff that spoke pretty good English.

The location was unbelievably good (don't quite understand others that say otherwise) as there were many bars, shops and small convenience stores within steps of the front door. I felt as though this was one of the better neighborhoods I visited in the whole city in terms of safety. A few sketchy people around but at no time did I ever fear for my safety. Just a few homeless hanging around the streets but they never approached us or bothered us. I freely used my cell phone and had no problem pulling it out. Republica Metro station is right down the street (3 minute walk) and that will get you anywhere you need to go in the city. There is also a very nice park right down the street as well. I will say that the park was a little more unsavory in terms of the people in it, but still not bad to walk around in the daytime. At night, the streets are very lively, so if you are a very light sleeper, maybe bring some ear plugs, but even light sleepers might not find this necessary. If you are like me, and like that kind of thing, it is the perfect location!

The room was spotless, and a very fair size for the price. The price to value ratio was very good. It's no Ritz Hotel or Hilton, but still very nice and clean. Water in the bathroom was hot and pressure in the shower was awesome! Beds were comfortable and there was a mini fridge in the room. Our room had AC and it worked very well. The breakfast was awesome and included scrambled eggs, several kinds of fruit, buns, cereal, cold cuts, cheese, some kind of sausage dish, coffee, tea, milk, several juices, and a few other little breakfast things. It was included in the price of the room, as was Wi-Fi.

Overall it was a great stay at the Soneca Plaza Hotel. For the price, it was awesome value. If I came back to Sao Paulo, I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again.

Very dirty and old hotel. Dirty room and dingy headboard. Impossible to sleep with the noise from the old air conditioning. Bad experience. Located in a very dangerous region in the center of São Paulo.
