ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Plan your trip

Accomodation

After you made up your mind to participate in the ISHPPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 meeting, it is time to decide where you are going to stay, in São Paulo.

No Brazilian university offers sufficiently large in-campus accommodation for conference participants. 

The Brazilian organizing committee provides here a list of hotels and hostels within walking distance to the Yellow Line of the subway, including the neighborhoods of “Pinheiros” (“Faria Lima” and “Pinheiros” stations), and “Jardins” (“Paulista” and “Consolação” stations). The neighborhoods of “Vila Madalena” and “Clínicas” are also good options to stay (stations with the same name, in the Green Line of the subway). 

Middle comfort hotels (3 stars, such as those of Ibis/Accor) at those neighborhoods cost about R$250,00 per day (about US$80.00), including a generous breakfast, in individual rooms with private bathroom. The cost of shared rooms (2 or 3 people) is about R$150,00 to R$100,00 per person per day (about US$50.00 to US$30.00), including breakfast. There are hotel options above and below this price, which are suggested below.

The local organization has also arranged an optional shuttle service from four of those hotels to the conference venue. The four hotels with available shuttle service are these:

1. Hotel Mercure SP Jardins (four stars)

2. WZ Hotel
(four stars)

3. Golden Tower Hotel
(four stars)

4. Ibis Styles Faria Lima Hotel
(three stars)

Some of the other suggested lodgings are located within walking distance of the four hotels with shuttle service. Those who choose any of those nearby hotels may also be willing to book the 
optional shuttle service. However, it will be necessary to go the the front entrance of the nearby shuttle service hotel, at the appointed times, to use the service. You may check the details provided below, or the map of suggested hotels (click the link or the image below), to help making your choice.

If you want to book the optional shuttle service you should do it up to April 30th. No booking of the shuttle service will be possible after this deadline. If you want to book the shuttle service, go to the Conference Shop and Payments page.

All the hotel prices shown here are the prices informed by the hotels, in February 2017, in Brazilian currency (R$ reais), and the same value converted into US dollars (US$) using the February 2017 exchange rate (US$1 = R$3.2). Hotel prices and exchange rates may change (they might increase or decrease) in the next months.  

If you book any of the suggested hotels directly, you may ask for a discount rate, informing them that you will attend the 2017 ISHPSSB & ABFHiB Meeting.

You may book a hotel directly, but we strongly suggest that you use hotel price comparison sites, such as HotelsCombined, Trivago, Booking.com, Priceline, Hotels.com, Expedia, HostelWorld or your favorite site of price comparison. The hotel booking websites shown here are recommended by Frommer's :

You may also consult the Airbnb service if you are looking for a flat, house or room to rent; but be careful if you do so, regarding safety, communication with the owner (does she/he really speak a language you understand?) and quality of the accomodation. In Brazil, renting a place by Airbnb might be safer for a group of friends than for a single person, a couple or a family.
