Arrived Friday in the early evening on the airport bus and after a bit of a walk we easily found the hotel. The walk was up the mainstreet with many people enjoying their evening. Although some of the area is a little bit dingy in no way did we feel threatened. On arrival at the hotel the check in was... More

The rooms are clean, a good king size bed, air climatisation, but TV is tricky to turn on, and prone to interference during thunderstorms, and worse, only a few channels, nothing in English. Wifi is OK. Staff is very kind, and breakfast is excellent.And last but not least, not so expensive.

We stayed for a night and we found the room quite ok. Spacious and good for the 40€ we paid per night. Breakfast was on the weak end because the pastries were not very fresh. It was quite disappointing the lack of free Internet and the fact that they are under staff as only one receptionist has to deal with... More

I stayed one week there and I have to say that the level of service was quite weak. The receptionists hardly spoke English. I am not even a native speaker but in an international hotel the well qualified receptionists would be more than required. I had a constant problem with Internet and I needed to pay for it on top...

My wife and I spent two nights at the San Raphael in June, 2013. The hotel is within walking distance of Praca da Republica and other attractions in the center of the city.

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... More

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... More

Very outdated, single beds which my wife hated. TV very old and outdated.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.

Staying in Republica

Neighbourhood Profile
Republica
Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República was once a fancy residential area. República Square holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look, with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that inspired filmmakers and other artists. To get the feeling of São Paulo in the beginning of the 1900s, visit the Municipal Theatre – you will be amazed by its architecture. The area also features several galleries. República is a great area to explore during daytime, but use caution if visiting alone at night.
