About this listing
Guest room with shared bathroom in one of the safest, best located and most lively neighborhoods of Sao Paulo. Building with 24/7 security in a residential area. Fast internet connection and amenities included.
Nice guestroom in one of the coolest, most central and safest areas of São Paulo. Itaim Bibi is a cool, modern neighborhood, which serves not only as São Paulo’s prime business district but is also one of the best residential locations in town. You’re close to an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, shopping malls and nightclubs. Unless you have a specific site to visit outside this area there is really no reason to leave.
Enjoy the "easy city" instead of the "busy city" staying in a traditional centrally located family/professional friendly neighborhood. No heavy traffic. Trees and gardens everywhere. Find both unique local business and nice global chains on every corner (Le Pain Quotidien, Starbucks, etc). Units of all the city's best restaurants without the tourist crowds and long lines, and the best part: walk! One of the few neighborhoods in São Paulo in which you can still do everything by walking (safely, day and night). Both Ibirapuera Park (to relax) and Avenida Faria Lima (to work) are just a 10-15 minute walk away. If you're not much of a walker, bikes, frequent buses and R$15 taxi rides will take you pretty much anywhere (Av Paulista, MASP, Downtown) - there is no metro though - residents like to keep it kind of secluded.
I share the apartment with another young professional friend and we have a nice guest room to accommodate family and friends when they come to the city. The room has a double bed, an empty closet, and a desk - which combined with the 10MB Wi-Fi and the short distance from most offices in town, makes it the perfect place for travelers on business trips. If you're coming only to enjoy the city I'll do my best to provide you with local tips, but you will be on your own most of the time - as we work pretty much all day and usually leave the city on weekends.
The kitchen is equipped with the basics (stove, oven, microwave, coffee machine, fridge, etc) plus a washer you can use. We don't cook that much but there is an organic restaurant literally in front of the building and several others good ones + supermarkets/grocery stores can be found around the block. The bathroom is shared and a housekeeper comes every Tuesday to clean the apartment and iron the clothes. There is a doorman and security downstairs 24/7.
Interaction with Guests
Você vai ficar a maior parte do tempo sozinho - já que trabalhamos praticamente o dia inteiro e normalmente viajamos nos fins de semana. Porém quando estamos em casa gostamos de interagir e trocar experiências.
O Itaim é um bairro procurado principalmente por famílias, profissionais e estrangeiros - que junto dão ao bairro um ar de cidade do interior e cosmopolita ao mesmo tempo. É possível encontrar tanto as melhores franquias globais (Starbucks, Le Pain Quotidien, etc) quanto atrações genuinamente paulistanas (Ritz, Santo Grão, Lanchonete da Cidade). Árvores, canteiros e padarias estão em todas as esquinas. A melhor parte é que dá para fazer tudo andando! Não há ladeiras e a segurança é constante (uma das delegacias mais modernas da cidade ficam no bairro). Ao contrário de outros bairros, não há muitos turistas e hotéis no Itaim - o que é perfeito se o que você procura é uma experiência local. O Parque do Ibirapuera (para relaxar) e a Avenida Faria Lima (para trabalhar) estão a apenas 10-15min de caminhada. Se você não curte tanto andar, bicicletas da cidade, ônibus e taxis vão te levar para qualquer lugar de São Paulo com facilidade (não existe estação de metrô no entanto - os moradores preferem manter uma certa exclusividade).
