a very well located flat at Higienópolis, one of the nicest neighbourhoods in town! Walking distance to metro Santa Cecília on the Red Line and 2,5 km away from old city centre (half hour on foot).
This is a 2 bedroom flat, there is a spare room where you will stay.
Your room is big, bright (big windows) with wooden floor. There is a single bed and great built in wardrobe.
I provide linen, hand and body towel and body soap.
Also you can use all kitchen appliances: blender, italian coffee maker (please, just make sure you rinse it without washing liquid!) , rice cooker, sandwich maker, etc.
Plus: hair dryer, iron, washing machine, washing soap, washing powder, toilet paper.
Cleaning fee is charged for stays longer than 1 week, and it is 35 reais each per visit. (But we can agree on how often the cleaner will come).
***** I´d kindly ask you to read all this info thoroughly before requesting the booking, and please any doubt feel free to ask me :) thanks!
WIFI internet available. I've got no pets.
Sharing living room, kitchen and toilet/shower. (no bathtub, sorry!)
There is a 24 hours reception on the building.
No smoking in the building, however, I wouldn't mind smokers having a fag by the window inside the room...
Whenever I'm free, I'd love to take you around, go out for drinks, dinners, meeting my friends, etc. :)
I've lived in sharing houses for nearly 6 years in London and 3 years in Japan, so I understand how is it like to share our lives with people with different backgrounds.
I'm pretty laid back kind of person and simply adore traveling and travelers, specially when they come to Sao Paulo. So I want to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
For stays shorter than 1 week, I will serve breakfast. If you are allergic to anything or don't like certain food, please feel free to write me about :)
Higienópolis is one of the nicest areas of São Paulo. It feels that you're not in such a huge city, since it's a neighbourhood you can stroll through wooded streets while get your groceries done or have a beer at a 'boteco' (bar) .
Or even read a book at a cool little park nearby (Parque Buenos Aires)!...
then...after a while, you realize you are less than 3 km from the old, hectic city centre !
The neighbourhood is lively , but pretty calm on Sundays, with all amenities closeby: pharmacy, supermarkets, street market on Thursdays and Sundays.
Plenty of bars & restaurants next to the University Mackenzie, which is less than 5 min's walk from the flat.
- around 8' walk to metrô Santa Cecília (Red line)
- around 10' walk to metrô República (Red and Yellow line)
Main spots that connects you to the public transport:
- Metrô Santa Cecília (red line)
- Rua da Consolação (bus connection North-South and other connections, such as Vila Madalena, Av.Paulista)
- Praça da República (where metrô República connects to Yellow line, which takes you to Avenida Paulista within one stop)
- Avenida Angélica (buses to Vila Madalena and Av.Paulista)
- Avenida São João (busses connection East-West)
TO/FROM GUARULHOS AIRPORT :
The best way is to get the coach "Airport Bus" , for R$ 36,00 one way.
The starting/ending stop is at PRAÇA DA REPÚBLICA .
You can get to the flat either by taxi (less than 10 reais) or 10' walk (it's doable if you only bring a backpack).
By TAXI, it's a fixed price 110 reais one way.
At Guarulhos Arrival terminal, you can see the taxi stand right after the automatic door that leads to the airport parking lot.
- Check in at 14:00
- Check out at 12:00
If you need to check in earlier (or check out later) I I´m pretty flexible, as long as there isn´t a new guest checking in on the same day :)
In case of a busy period (e.g. World Cup period) , if you need an early check in, I can take your luggage and leave it in the living room, no problem!
If you want I can show you the nearer coffee shop (with wifi!) if you feel like. ; )
..thank you for understanding!
Leticia is a lovely person and a splendid host: kind, selfless, generous, very caring and helpful with whatsoever. Her apartment is in one of the nicest neighborhoods São Paulos, central, pleasantly cool and calm. Ótimo!
El único peligro de quedarte en casa de Leticia es que te encuentres tan a gusto que decidas no volver a tu lugar de origen y quedarte a vivir en São Paulo para siempre, como casi me sucede a mí.
El apartamento está en un lugar inmejorable, muy limpio, tranquilo y seguro, y Leticia es una chica muy amable con muy buenas capacidades interculturales, y siempre procurando la mejor estancia de sus huéspedes pero sin agobios. La mejor elección para São Paulo, sin duda.
This was my second stay in this 'cosy, quiet single room' in Higienópolis. After my first stay earlier this year, I mentioned that Letícia's home felt like 'a home away from home'. Well, I can absolutely say that the second time it was like 'coming back home.'
The place was as comfortable and nice as the first time. I was familiar with the great location, and Letícia lived absolutely up to her reputation of being an airbnb Superhost :-)
Thanks Letícia for making my stay in São Paulo once again very special, and for adding such a wonderful human touch to this urban jungle.
It took me almost a month to write this review. Laziness, some will say. But no, it has nothing to do with that. The thing was, I had no idea how to put in words how perfect and incredibly great my stay was... So I'll just try now, but take into account that you have to multiply my enthusiasm by at least... a thousand. Leticia's flat is ideally situated in São Paulo, very close on foot from the city very center and from two subway stations, without even mentioning the many bus stops in the neighborhood. Shops of many kinds are very close to the monitored building where the flat is. Not only is the room (and apartment) perfectly clean and neatly decorated, but it is also full of light and spacious (much place for big luggage like mine was); the kitchen is not huge but more than sufficient and very well furnished. Bathroom is more than okay too. Wifi is very good, and the flat far enough from the street- you can here birds singing in the morning, isn’t that great?- so it’s quiet. All in all, I would say it’s sincerely a perfect place to stay. But the greatest part about this is the host, Letícia. Always available, always here to help in Portuguese, English, French, Spanish, always trying to make sure you’re feeling good and enjoying the city, she will take you personally to great restaurants & bars she knows or has heard of, won't miss an opportunity to guide you into this urban jungle that São Paulo is, or to give you the best advice ever to enjoy this great city. Expect some truly touching messages when you arrive, when you wake up in the morning etc... Although she works hard all day, she always takes time to chat with you and ask you about your day when coming home. I can say without no doubt that this first week at her place and in her company helped me beat “saudade” and enjoy my stay here in Brazil from the very first moments. For this, I thank you again and again, and for the whole rest also. Xoxo
I stayed at Leticia's for four months during a study trip to Sao Paulo! Leticia is a very nice person and host. She is accomodating and rather discreet. The appartment is really well located in a safe neighborhood. It is very practical. I would absolutely go back to Leticia's for my next trip!
It could not have been better. That's it!
I thoroughly enjoyed my two-week stay in Letícia's home. I do use 'home' carefully, but it was truly 'home away from home' ... maybe even better! There are the obvious parts: great apartment, nice room, very clean, great location/neighborhood for getting a real impression of this crazy mega-metropolis. Then there was the welcoming snack and the local maps and a little note with the WiFi information. Really nice touches. But most of all, it was the human touch, it was about Letícia: a well-traveled multi-lingual host, incredibly kind and open, and someone who just makes you feel, well ... at home. I will come back to São Paulo, and I sure am looking forward to staying again with Letícia, in my 'home away from home'. There is a reason why someone described Letícia as an Airbnb Superhost' :-)
PS: This was my first airbnb experience, and it was definitely not my last!
FUE UNA EXPERIENCIA AGRADABLE CONOCER A LETICIA!ELLA ES SUMAMENTE AMABLE Y SIEMPRE DISPUESTA AYUDAR,OFRECIENDOME FRUTAS,TES Y MUY DULCE EN SU CUIDADO Y ORIENTACON SOBRE MI VIAJE,FUE POCO EL TIEMPO DE CONVIVENCIA,PERO SUFICIENTE PARA SENTIRME SEGURA Y COMODA!LINDA HABITACION MUY CENTRICA .ESPERO TENER PRONTO LA OPORTUNIDAD DE REGRESAR!GRACIAS!
Fui a São Paulo fazer um curso e participar de alguns eventos de trabalho, ficando por 11 dias na cidade. Meus dias em SP foram cheios e ter a casa de Letícia como base foi fundamental para que tudo funcionasse.
Sua casa é muito confortável, bem localizada, tem boas opções de transporte, super mercados e farmácias. Por estar em uma área universitária, tem boas opções de bares e restaurantes que ficam abertos até mais tarde.
Além de tudo isso, Letícia foi super solícita, sempre me ajudando com dicas sobre a cidade, fazendo com que eu me sentisse em casa.
Realmente recomendo essa casa tão (website hidden) certeza nas próximas vezes que for a SP, gostaria de ficar em sua casa novamente.
I went to São Paulo for a short-term classes and some work meetings. I stayed 11 days in the city and Leticia's house was fundamental to make it work.
Her place is cozy, well located, good transportations options, markets and drugstores 5 minutes walking. It is a college area, so there are many options to eat and drink. Most of them is still open late.
Leticia is super helpful, she was always helping me with good tips about the town and made me feel home. I strongly recommend her lovely place. For sure, the next times when I come back to São Paulo, this will be my first option.
I liked this apartment, its location, how clean it is, how it has everything I needed and how comfy my bed was. Moreover, Leticia is a fantastic host. Actually, she was kind of enough to take the time to show me some parts of Sao Paulo. She also helped me with any questions I had and gave me tips on where to stay and what to do in Rio (I was to leave to Rio the next week of my stay). I appreciate all the help I got especially that I did not speak Portuguese nor Spanish. I recommend staying at Leticia's to anyone visiting Sao Paulo.
Letícia is an amazing friend and also an EXCELLENT HOST! Definitely you will have the best stay in São Paulo, her flat is very well located and clean. The neighborhood is safe, close to Pão de Açúcar supermarket, nice restaurants, bakeries (all the services nearby / walking distance). Easy public transportation: Metro, Bus stop and Taxi. She is the best SP guide book ever... always ready to help and give nice tips of the city. I highly recommended her! Happy 2013 ;)
