The stay was great and Milena and her father are great hosts! The area is very conveniently located, next to Avenida Angélica and walking distance to Avenida Paulista or São Paulo city center. A lot of things to do and see around the place and in general a safe neighborhood. The room with WC and kitchen was perfect for my needs, plus the extra of having great wifi and cable tv. If I ever return to São Paulo, I know where I'll stay.

La habitacion que nos dieron es muy confortable, encontramos todo lo necesario para nuestra estadia ademas de muchos detalles que mejoraron mi experiencia en varios hoteles del mundo. Milena es cien puntos, muy amable, atenta a nuestras necesidades y con una respuesta pronta a todo lo que necesitamos, recomendare este lugar a todos mis amigos y espero volver pronto!
You have a bedsit with a separate entrance, with fully equipped kitchenette and bathroom with shower.
Comfortable and clean; well located to explore this amazing City - within walking distance of Av Paulista but in a peaceful and safe residential neighbourhood.
Milena our host could not have been more helpful. She speaks excellent English and was happy to recommend local restaurants particularly for my vegetarian daughter.
I would definitely recommend.
This was our second time staying at BossHouse B&B, and we loved it as much as our first time. The apartment is modern and spatious, with trees and birds just outside the window. The personalized breakfast brought each morning was so delightful. And we loved that we could walk a few blocks and find excellent restaurants. Thank you, Milena!
This was a fabulous home base for a total of 4 nights in Sao Paulo with my husband, who had never been to Brazil before. The neighborhood is hilly and charming, with great restaurants within walking distance. (It's a little far to the metro station; if I were here longer, I'd learn the bus routes.) Milena was a wonderful host. She is so accommodating: she even let us check in at 8am because of our early flight arrival time, and she let us use the room to repack, wait for our taxi, and check email the afternoon that we checked out. We loved the dogs, Todinho and Alemao. The apartment was clean and modern, with everything we needed, and good wifi. The breakfast was delicious and personalized. We felt like we were at home, yet with plenty of privacy and professionalism on Milena's part. I would love to come back.
Our stay at this BnB was absolutely perfect. The apartment is big, airy and clean as well as being in a neighbourhood, close to all amenities. However, the hosts are what make it special. Thank you to Milena and her family for welcoming us into their home. The chats we had and the advice they had to give really made our stay in Sao Paulo perfect.
I would stay here again, and recommend it to any traveller.
Olá Milena, Marcos e Boss,
Eu e meu namorado Michel adoramos a experiência com vocês. Obrigada pela hospitalidade e pelas dicas que nos deram. Comemos uma boa pizza em São Paulo e conhecemos o Museu do Futebol, passeios que não cogitávamos fazer, mas que fizemos por indicação de vocês. Valeram à pena!
Somos gratos também por terem guardado nossas bagagens no último dia, quando a nossa diária já havia terminado.
Esperamos repetir a experiência e recomendaremos aos nossos amigos e familiares a hospitalidade dos anfitriões queridos.
Um grande abraço a todos vocês.
Milena Valle e Michel Pinheiro.

About the Host, Milena
I'm a graphic designer, I have an online store to sell travel accessories called 4Explorers. Traveling is my biggest passion. I love receiving guests because I have the opportunity to meet people around the world without leaving home.
Our house is known as "The Boss House". Why BossHouse?! Boss is the nickname we have given to our father, Bernardo. He is the Big Boss! The head of the family, adoptive father of many friends! After back from a long trip to Sicily, in Italy, where he only stayed B&Bs, he decided to do the same here. And we support the idea!
I live here with my father Bernardo, he is retired teacher and my niece Beatriz who is studying journalism.
