              Stayed 1 night in June 2014

              Shabby but don't be afraid to stay here”

              central location

              In a nutshell: Stayed here for a night, no major complaints. If you get it at a great price and aren't fussy, no problem. Most of the recent reviews seem correct. It would be a poor two-star hotel in North America. Instead of a costly cab ride from the airport you can take the airport bus for R40 as I did and walk from Praca da Republica stop for a couple of blocks if you aren't daunted by the post-apocalyptic downtown core. Pros: -affordable -decent breakfast with awesome fruit -helpful front desk with language caveat below -in-room wifi was excellent -plenty of restos, bars and metro very nearby, you can buy whatever you need from the streets -didn't hear guest noises -cleanish Cons: -there's a construction site next door, looks like it will take several months, they start heavy equipment at 8am -any phone that rings in any adjacent room sounds like it's ringing next to your bed -musty smell in room and bed -run-down area (applies to much of downtown to be fair) -I could communicate with reception using Spanish but not English -only two 'hot' items for breakfast and the eggs were stone cold -those staying with someone else might be put off by the bathroom glass that is more a partial barrier than a true door.

              Walking distance to center and metro, clean rooms

              the hotel itself is not that appealing, english only did give me some difficulties on communication. only few staff can speak a little english. hotel has wifi only and not very stable, no cable which is a negative. breakfast is boring.

              So-so hotel”

              Room is rather spacious

              the location of the hotel is ok with "republica" station being just a 10 minute walk away and it was just a few stops away from the liberdade area which has all the good japanese restaurants. that being said, the area directly outside the hotel is a little seedy and shady - i would have preferred to stay at liberdade itself considering how i was there almost every day but then again, my purpose was to eat at the japanese restaurants. breakfast was decent and included a simple array of bread buns, ham, cheese, fruits, cereal, scrambled eggs and hot dog in tomata sauce, cakes and fruit juices. the bed and pillow were not very good. they were too soft and provided little support - we had a backache after sleeping on it. the toilet is odd because the door only goes 3/4 of the way with 1/4 uncovered. seriously, why would you do that? i don't want to hear/smell my partner while he is doing his business in the toilet and vice versa! very self-conscious while in the toilet, that's for sure. while our stay was ok, i don't think i would stay here again.

              The staff were very helpful.
              Bad area of town; very basic and not particularly clean hotel (needs some cleaning and renovation)

              When I booked this hotel, I didn't realize that it was in a pretty bad area of Sao Paolo. Very dirty area of the city and lots of vagrants around outside. The hotel itself was also a bit dirty and worn down; it needs some refurbishing. But, it was quite inexpensive, so you get what you pay for. On the plus side, the staff went out of their way to help me: helping me with a map and directions; helping when the key to the safe broke, etc.

              Area at nigth is not that save. Fire protection is questiable.

              The area arround the hotel is surprising for instance one street you will find many shops selling PC's and spare parts. In an other street you will find a lot of shops selling motor bikes. The Hotel is close to Park Republica and you will find here a subway station which connect you to the full system. When you arrive at the Airport you can take the Airport bus which stops at Park Republica. A walking distance of less than 5 minutes remain.

              Not The Marriot”

              Hotel looks nice from inside, including rooms. Beds are confortable and the complimentary breakfast is good. The staff is very helpful except when they try to set you up with a taxy (the taxy will charge you more than usual).
              The noise from your neighbors in the hotel and outside is horrible! It's like you don't have walls around you. You hear people slamming doors from the nextdoor rooms and all kinds of noises from the street. The vicinity is just like the slums so be careful at night.

              This hotel is cheap and confortable (physically). But beware of scams and don't show around your cameras when you're out. Like I said the noise is terrible so for people with nerve ailments, don't go to this hotel. The staff is nice and helpful. If you need a taxy, go out and ask the drivers yourself. Beware of the dollar to Real exchange rate.

              Mala experiencia, ya que el hotel se encuentra en una zona muy mala, no se puede salir de noche, no tiene lugares nocturnos y es peligroso, sentí hasta balazos. Esta a una cuadra de un metro pero debes cruzar entre medio de calles de mala calidad, el televisor tiene como 12 canales y se veía solo con rayas, la atención de la sra a cargo horrible, siempre mala cara y ninguna intención de ayudar al cliente. Es recomendable solo para dormir en algo de negocios y que te deje un taxi en la puerta del hotel y te retire ahí mismo

              Estancia en el centro de São Paulo”

              Las camas son cómodas, y el servicio de limpieza es bueno. El buffet del desayuno es bastante variado y el baño es bastante amplio y agradable.
              Cuando pedí indicaciones en el hotel para un SHopping Centre, me enviaron al otro punto de la ciudad cuando había muchos en las cercanías.

              Si necesita pasar unos días en São Paulo el hotel Castilha es una buena opción, sabiendo que el centro de la ciudad (Praça da República.....) no es un lugar demasiado seguro durante la noche cuando la gente que trabaja allí ya se ha ido a sus casas. Yo recomendaría algún hotel cerca de la Avenida Paulista que es un lugar más seguro e igual de bien conectado, o mejor, que la zona de la República, con el resto d ela ciudad.

Die Möglichkeit früher/später An/Abzureisen ist auf Anfrage meistens ohne Probleme bzw. zusätzlichen Gebühren möglich. Frühstück sollte in der Regel eher früher eingenommen werden, da es gegen 9 Uhr recht voll werden kann. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist normalerweise für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei (auch eher einheimische Gerichte wie z.B. Roulade mit Wurst - schmeckt ungewohnt aber nicht schlecht). Auf Anfrage bekommt man von der Rezeption auch Tipps wo man gut und günstig essen kann.
