Featured Hotels


Hotel Excelsior

This 198-room hotel in São Paulo, with its mammoth convention centre, flatters beyond its 4-star billing. The rooms behind Excelsior's art-deco frontage are plain and businesslike, yet excellent value. Wi-Fi is free, rooms come with LCD TVs and there is a bar and fitness centre onsite. The location is also close by downtown Praça da República with nearby cultural icons such as Teatro Municipal and Edificio Copan. Staff speak English and can help book tickets and tours. Breakfast included.

Hotel Neptun
