In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

    Cadê da manhã atrasado

    Único problema é o CAFÉ DA MANHÃ que deveria ser servido as 6h e as 6:20h eles ainda estavam terminando de montar a mesa. Um hotel no centro de Sp a grande maioria dos hóspedes estão a trabalho, precisam de agilidade As 6:15h Pedi na recepção q pelo menos servissem um ovo mexido p mim p/ q eu pudesse comer e sair

    Localização Perigosa

    Localização é péssima. MUITO perigoso, é sair do hotel direto pro Uber. Passear pela região eu não recomendo.

    Lírio do pântano

    O local é bonito, aconchegante e discreto, pena que o centro de São Paulo está destruído, tomado pela sujeira e abandono.

    Péssima localização

    O hotel é localizado em uma área horrível da cidade, tudo no entorno é extremamente sujo e há muito barulho à noite. A cama não é confortável e o travesseiro é muito duro. O tamanho do quarto e banheiro são bons. No primeiro dia a água do chuveiro não esquentou bem, tomamos banho com temperatura entre morna e fria. Há muito limo no banheiro e no quarto, falta cuidado com a limpeza. O café da manhã é razoável.

    Endereço ruim hospedagem muito boa

    O endereço (rua Aurora) não ė dos melhores, mas a boa hospedagem compensa.

    Velho Conhecido

    Conheço o Hotel Castelar há muito tempo. Fiquei muito anos sem hospedar-me nele, pois estou viajando raramente para São Paulo, mas gostei de voltar e constatar que o hotel continua bem cuidado e com bom atendimento.

    Tranquilo! Só o café da manha precisa de um comentário! São Paulo tem uma padaria em cada esquina, então é muito fácil fazer parceria e ter um pão quente na mesa do cafe!
