Overview

About the property

Room 3201 Is Located On The Top (32nd) Floor Of Sao Paulo's Icon, Edificio Copan

The space is small: 28sqm in total.

I bought it in 2011 in pretty much original, but desolate condition. It was then renovated and converted for its new use, increasing the size of the bathroom and bringing natural light in, while preserving many of the original features, details and materials - sometimes reinventing their use.

The interior is very minimal, but it has everything a typical hotel room would offer including wifi, kettle and mini bar.

There is no kitchen, but there is an abundance of excellent options for eating out in all price ranges in the immediate surrounding. There is a 1400x2000 double bed with a good matress. There is also a bookshelf with a specially selected collection of books, which is still growing. As the space is new and I am keen to improve things, I appreciate any feedback and suggestions from my guests.

I am in London or Berlin most of the time. I can be contacted by telephone and email. There is a local contact person, who will greet arriving guests, hand over keys and can answer queries and also provide local information. She is an interpreter for English German and Portuguese - so communication should be easy.

The location could not be more central.

The district called Centro is located at the point of intersection of the city’s main thoroughfares, Centro is the region most well-served by public transportation in the city (served by all subway lines, except Line 5).

The area is composed of the Sé and República districts, plus the ring of districts around these two.

In the 1970s and 80s the area was seriously affected by an exodus of from downtown leading to urban degradation and rise of criminality. But more recently the trend has turned and the area has attracted many professional and creative people, who want to avoid commuter traffic and enjoy the proximity of jobs and amenities. Today many renovation projects are taking place, making the area confidently regain importance and take its place as the city’s historic core and a vibrant commercial and cultural zone.

There is a large variety of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs galleries etc. in the immediate surrounding of the building.

The lower floors of the building itself contain amongst other things restuarants (both cheap and expensive), Coffee bar, Internet cafe, hairdressers, boutiques, beauty spa, and an art space named PIVO (

The surrounding is best explored by foot.

For other areas of Sao Paulo:

The closest Metro Station is Republica, about 2 minutes walk.

There is also a Taxi stand immediately in front of the building.

From/To the Airport:

The shuttle bus from the main international Airport (GRU) brings you straight to Praça da República.

From the bus stop turn around the corner into Avenida Ipiranga and you will be able to see the most famous of Sao Paulo’s Architectural Icons, the Edificio Copan, towering above neighbouring buildings just about 100m down the road.

As an extra I can arrange nice shared office/desk space for work with WIFI, printers, coffee machine and meeting room just around the corner from Room3201/Edificio Copan. I can also arrange an interpreter in conjunction with a booking. Please ask.

I will need to provide a scan/copy of your Passport(Non-Brazilians) or RG (Brazilians) to the building administration ahead of your stay. This is a precautionary safety/security measure so that the porter can identify you.

excelente!

  • 5 of 5

Vivo em São Paulo e procurava uma noite diferente com meu namorado. Ir ao último andar do Copan foi incrível! A vista é linda, o apartamento lindo, super agradável e confortável. O contato com o Julian, com a Chris e com a Evelise foi fácil, pontual e impecável.
