4 – Location:
4.1 - The street
Small and peaceful street in the heart of Itaim. It´s really one of the nicest streets in Itaim The street is just one block long and so it is very quiet while very central. It´s one of the quietest streets in Itaim.
The flat is in the best part of Itaim. 5 minute walk to a large number of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, shops, supermarkets, dry cleaning, gym, cabs, coffee shops, bakeries, etc.
Some of the trendiest restaurants and bars in Sao Paulo are within a 10 min walk
10 minute walk to Faria Lima Avenue (main financial district in São Paulo).
1 block from Etoile George V (Itaim) hotel. 20 minute walk to Ibirapuera Park. Iguatemi and JK Iguatemi malls are within a short taxi ride.
Really convenient and nice location.
4.2 - Itaim
It´s a high end neighbourhood in São Paulo. It´s a mix of business (it´s São Paulo prime business district: Faria Lima Avenue and surroundings), entertainment (many of the best restaurants, bars, nightclubs of Sao Paulo are in Itaim), shopping (Iguatemi mall, etc) and residential (it´s one of the best residential locations in town). Itaim is one of the few neighborhoods in Sao Paulo where you can still do everything by walking. In addition, Rua da Mata is in one of the nicest parts of Itaim. And it´s a a short taxi ride to Jardins (Oscar Freire Street, Av Paulista, etc). It´s easy to find cabs and frequent buses to everywhere in the city. There is no tube/subway in the area though.

The apartment is always clean. The cleaning lady can do your laundry and iron clothes.
Marcelo’s apartment is a great choice! First, the apartment is very well maintained in a high standard and familiar building. The room is very spacious as well as the bathroom and there is a cleaning lady who helps you with everything from laundry to supermarket shopping. Also, the swimming pool is great and you can sun bath the whole day. On top of that, the location is perfect. The apartment is walking distance from several restaurants, bars and coffee places, still in a familiar neighborhood, safe and not too crowded. You will get more than you expect from the pics and description and It is surely the best deal you can get once you are in São Paulo!
Bedroom and bathroom (all for myself) were fine. I could use the spacious table in the dining room to work on my laptop. WIFI internet connection worked without any problem. Marcelo had provided me with a very useful list of tips where to go and what to do in the area. I found Itain a very pleasant neighbourhood. (restaurant, coffeeshops, supermarkets,etc..)

Incredible experience. Apartment is well located (safe, bars, restaurants, etc), spacious, and clean. Can't say enough nice things about Marcelo. He is an ideal roommate: he's responsible, clean, organized, and very respectful. However, he goes above and beyond that in the real effort he makes to make sure you have a nice stay. He will help you with any problem you might have; and he will advise you on places to go/things to see etc. No negatives.
Tudo perfeito. O Marcelo é excelente pessoa e super atencioso em todos os detalhes. O apartamento é amplo, organizado e confortável, com ótima localização em um dos melhores bairros de SP. Totalmente recomendável!

A estadia no apartamento do Marcelo, foi simplesmente perfeita. O ponto é ótimo, o apartamento perfeito. Muito a agradecer, nada a reclamar.
My friend and I enjoyed wonderful hospitality in a lovely home. Marcelo is friendly, kind and easy going and offered lots of great advice for us. He even went out of his way to put us in contact with a friend of his so we could buy special designer swim suits. I would definitely recommend to other guests.
Marcelo was a great host! He provides a nice, clean home in a great neighborhood. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance, yet it's usually a very quiet and safe place area.
Marcelo was very helpful and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable at his place. He also put together a great list of places to visit, eat at, and see in both Sao Paulo and Rio. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anybody visiting Sao Paulo.
