You will be in the heart os São Paulo. Santa Cecília is a very live neighborhood, close to Higienópolis, one of the fanciest districts of the city; to Downtown and all its unique character; to Rua Augusta and its amazing alternative nightlife. Within a block or two you can find bus stations served by several different lines and a subway statation (Santa Cecília - red line), that will easily take you anywhere you want.
The room is quite confortable, and ready to host one person or two (with a matress for the second guest). In the apartament, you will have to 10 MB wi-fi, a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, a confortable living room with a television and a dinning table.
In the same block of the building, there are two mid-size markets, one grocery store and restaurants of all kinds. Within a block there are two different backeries and a pharmacy. And, if you are willing to walk 10 minutes or so, you will have Shopping Higienópolis, one of the nicest in town.
This is all about a true "Paulista" experience. Welcome to the heart of São Paulo: to one of its oldest neighborhoods that used to be a fancy area back in time, but that preserves a modern decadent charm until today.
Come and enjoy it!
What to say about Filipe? The best host you can imagine! I stayed two months at his place and always felt at home. First because of the great apartment and the awesome location, second and more important because Filipe is a charming and great host. I loved to talk with him about life in Brazil or life in general, to get his advices where to go for dinner, what to see in São Paulo etc. He speaks English perfectly, but nevertheless we always talked in portuguese, because I wanted to improve my language skills. Thanks to Filipe I can really communicate in Brazil ; ) If you want to stay somewhere in São Paulo where you feel at home, you have to stay at Filipe's place... I will miss the time in São Paulo with Filipe, but I know that we gonna see us again - where ever in this world. Thanks Filipe, I had a great time!
The apartment was just as pictured. It's well decorated and comfortable, very close to the subway, a grocery store and some restaurants. The area the apartment is located felt safe, the sidewalks are well lit. I never felt I was in danger, even walking back to the apartment at night alone. Filipe was a great host, always offering recommendations on things to do or places to eat. He's a really laid back guy, we didn't have any problems at all. We actually hung out a couple of times with some of his friends and had a good time. I had a great experience staying here and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
I had a great time at Felipe's house. The apartment is very quite, clean and comfortable. Felipe is a very good and gentle host. He makes you feel like you are at your own home. I had a really go time and I strongly recommend his place.
Thanks for all
