About this listing
architect's apartment - heart of SP
I have a modern apartment, recently renovated in a famous historical building of São Paulo. Beautiful view from the window and you can also access the top floor of a stunning 360 degree views across the city . Near the coolest place in town, Rua Augusta, one of the point of the most cool and interesting people of the city and fifteen minutes by bus to Paulista Avenue. Many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Well located for public transport as it is close to Praça da Republica, three subway stations and many sightseeings like Municipal Theatre, Municipal Market, Páteo do Colégio (Ground Zero), Sala São Paulo (Concert Hall) and Mosteiro de São bento.
The apartment has one bedroom with a comfortable double bed. An extra mattress is provided in the case of two single guests. Bedroom, living-room, bathroom , laundry area (with a new washing mashine) , kitchen (with cooking utensils necessary) are well lit and ventilated. It comes with Wi-Fi (10 MB), cable TV, towels and bed linen. All you need to enjoy a nice stay in Sao Paulo.
I really enjoy having nice and respectful people. So please, treat things with respect and leave them as nice as you originally found.
No loud music (especially from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m.)
No more people staying in the apartment than originally agreed.
Le logement était tout à fait en accord avec les photos. Mariana a été présente à notre arrivée et nous a expliqué à moi et ma fille où faire nos courses etc...super donc Juste un petit problème avec l'eau de la douche pas toujours chaude mais sinon l'appartement est bien situé si l'on veut visiter le centre de Sao Paulo.
Olá, adorei o apto da Mariana! É muito bem localizado - e é muito agradável! Tem muito luz da janela e não tem muito barulho da rua. Tudo é muito novinho e bem organizado! E ela recebe gente muito bem! Voltaria com muita vondade!!!!
I stayed at Mariana's place for the month of June in 2015 while doing archival research in São Paulo and have nothing but positive things to say about my stay! First, I'd like to note that the place is a bit bigger than it appears online. It's more of a one-bedroom than a studio, as the bedroom is separated by from the living room space with a large and quite beautiful wooden sliding door. The entire space gets plenty of natural light thanks to the large windows, which also allow for a magnificent view of the city!
In the bedroom, there is a comfortable double bed, as well as ample storage space in the large closet, a full-length mirror, a desk, and plenty of extra towels and sheets in the dresser. The kitchen is also well-stocked, with all the pots, pans, flatware, and dishes you'd need. There are also a few bonus items, like tupperware, a blender, a food processor, a stovetop grill, a wok, and two moka pots (Italian stovetop coffee makers) - one large and one small. The oven and microwave worked well for all my cooking needs and the refrigerator was large enough to accommodate everything (I cook a lot)! It was also nice to have a real table for comfortably enjoying meals.
The bathroom was rather large for a city apartment and the hot shower had good pressure. There is also a laundry room off the side of the kitchen with a great washer, a separate wash sink, and several lines for drying. It was also fully-stocked with cleaning supplies, a broom, a squeegee mop for the tile floors, rags, etc.
Overall, the apartment is very cute and a neat combination of vintage and modern. The decorative tile wall and wooden sliding door are examples of these little touches!
The apartment is *very* well-located (10 minutes from 3 major metro lines and surrounded by buses and taxis at every corner) and near multiple cafes, diners, the post office, grocery stores, restaurants, drug stores, and banks, making things super convenient. The doormen and women of the building are incredibly friendly and helpful, and the residents are very nice and polite (always saying "hi/how are you?" in the elevator or in the lobby).
My husband also came to visit for a week and very much enjoyed the time he spent there. It was first time in Brazil, so being able to come home to such a cool place every day made his stay even better.
As for Mariana, she was an excellent host. She took the time to show me around a bit on the first day and though she lives a bit outside of the city, she was incredibly accommodating and helpful via email/phone whenever I had a question. Communication was never an issue. She also very much saved the day by finding the taxi driver whose cab I had left my passport in before traveling briefly to Rio! Super host indeed!!!
I highly recommend Mariana's space!
Esse apartamento é maravilhoso, perto de tudo e com tudo o que se precisa. A vista é incrível e o terraço é aberto aos moradores. Quero voltar muitas vezes!
Mariana's apartment is a great place in the centre of São Paulo. It has an impressive view over the city, a comfortable bed it has is a lot of light. I had to do a lot of working and the desk in the bedroom is perfect for that.
Mariana was a pleasant host. I booked last minute without any problem and when I needed to ask something she always responded really fast.
I would really recommend this place!
We loved staying at Mariana's place! The apartment had absolutely everything we needed for a work trip in Sao Paulo -- a functional kitchen, laundry, a great shower, space to spread our computers, and easy access to the metro. It was very clean, homey, and nicely decorated. The building's doormen were very helpful, and everything felt very secure. And Mariana is a great host! She met us on arrival to show us around the place, gave us very clear instructions, and I felt like she would have responded right away if anything went wrong. Highly recommended!
I stayed at Mariana's apartment for six weeks and if I did not have to go back home I'd stay there longer. The place feels like home, it is fully equipped with everything you need and the building offers breathtaking view of the city. It is ideal place for discovering SP as there is a bus terminal nearby and metro stops within walking distance. You can never go hungry thanks to the bakery right at the corner and a famous lanchonete within 500 meters. And on Sundays a market takes place even closer than that - perfect place to stock up on avocados or go for caldo de cana and pastel. If you feel acute lack of inspiration, you can find various guides in the apartment that will make you go out there and live SP to the fullest - whether at a lebanese restaurant or just chilling at one of the parks. Additionally, Mariana is a great host! She will be there for you if you need her but if not, she won't force it. If I ever pass by the city again this is definitely the place to stay. Muito obrigada!
