Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
This is a nice museum, centrally located on Paulista Avenue, with lots of exhibit space and a cafe in the basement. Some of the exhibits are include dint reentrance fee while others you need to pay additionally for. They have a large number of Brazilian artists but a good range of international well known artists as well.
Idependent of special events, its a place that deserves a visit a learn a bit more about Japan. Free entrance, cosy library, very good coffe shop and fantastic restaurant, it's a such enjoyable place to be.
Located on 9th July Avenue down some steps is a hidden cafe/bar. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it had a cool vibe and was busy with people eating and drinking. In fact we struggled to find a table and eventually perched on a bench.
The Bexiga district was once home to the tens of thousands of Italian immigrants who arrived in São Paulo in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, like its New York counterpart, the overwhelming majority of their descendants now live elsewhere.
The Italian influence is still reflected in a number of restaurants, pizzerias and bakeries, festivals and a church...

"Best ever meat in my life"

I am a spoiled palate, being Italian ( Fiorentina steak) who lived in Argentina for 10 years, I consider myself a tough cookie......Marcos was well beyond expectations! Tasty and tender meat... Just amazing, don't miss it!
Being old, they have experience, so they know how to treat a client. From the moment of entering in the restaurant, until keeping all the time an eye on you, to put wine in your glass, or a slice of pizza and they offer the best experience possible. The pizza that we ate was Siciliana and Calabrese Especiale, and were...
Just came from lunch. Went due to their association with Henrique Fogaca. Were not disappointed other than fact (reported to server) that my Risotto de Aspargos was spoiled due to over salty "Parma" ham (prosciutto). The saltiness took away the flavour of the rest of the dish. We shared a burrata and I finished with my version of a Sgroppino...
All great, but the breakfast could be better. Eggs can take up to 15 minutes, as well as waffles. The breads were not good, and the bread cheese was served on the table. They did not have variety of teas.
Even though in need of an updating in premises, the hotel still has much to offer, if you don´t mind busy and crowded breakfasts and not quite friendly personnel.
Usually interesting groups of music make presentations at night, in the lobby.
"One of the best place to stay in São Paulo. Short walk to Paulista Ave and many interesting Restaurent's. "

I enjoyed 3 nights stay there on the 17th floor. Clean new facility with separate sit out and state of the art bath room. Microwave oven and induction cooker are added advantage. Utensils are available on request. Staff speak English and very helpful. I would go back there again. Krish Pillai USA
The hotel was easy to find, despite the entrance not being on Paulista avenue. Just less than a 5 minute walk around will bring you to the main avenue (with a mall and Mcdonalds so no problem with food). There is also a Chinese restaurant across the street, and a taxi stand in front.
The rooms are comfortable and spacious,...
Value for money !!
Nice front desk staff. Very polite and helpful.
Wish the restaurant staff could understand basic english.
The rooms should be provided with drinking water free of charge.
The overall ambiance is good.
Walkable distance from Avenue Paulista
