Paysandu Hotel is in an ideal location within walking distance of Aterro beach and overlooking the palm tree lined Rua Paissandau. The neighborhood is more authentically Brazilian than the overpopulated tourist areas and there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars to discover without every having to worry about safety, yet still just a five minute drive from downtown Copacabana. The traditional low-rise building maintains many charming original features including the antique elevator. Clean and comfortable rooms mostly have ocean views, are very well furnished and include plenty of amenities like satellite TV, minibar and Wi-Fi. see more

Quite good.

Very friendly and accommodating staff, the good location (near the beach and Largo do Machado metro) and nice neighborhood even at night.
They put me in a nice double room on the fifth floor, but unfortunately it had strong kitchen smells. They moved me to a triple room which was a bit dusty but all in all it was good enough for me. Internet was free and the connection strong. Breakfast was good (fruit, bread, cheese and processed meat), but I would suggest they serve eggs. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay in this hotel with its classic interior.

Just a stepping stone, dodgy area

Relatively clean
The hotel looked very old, both on the outside and inside. It was definitely well kept and clean. If I had a choice, I would not stay there again. The area looked dodgy with pick-pockets around the corner. The hotel was kept locked throughout the night, which seems to give the feeling that the area was not safe at night.

Old fashioned hotel with a certain charm

lovely location, relatively cheap internet
Overall, the stay at Paysandu´s was good. The bed however was a little too small for a double bed and the pillows were too flat and hard. Thankfully I had my travel pillow so that my partner could make use of the 3rd pillow in the cupboard to give his neck support. One of the guys working at the reception was so friendly and sometimes he even had my key ready when he saw me walking into the hotel from a distance! Location wise, the Flamengo area is not that far from the domestic airport. The hotel is also near to sights such as Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf mountain. I didn´t go to Copacabana which would have been near but took a really long bus ride instead to Ipanema which was beautiful. Internet was charged at R0.10 per minute which was more than enough for me to send a few emails a day. Breakfast was the same everyday but it was sufficient with juice milk, an array of ham, cheese, bread, cereal and cake.
Restaurant Tip: nearby a few streets away is a brilliant japanese sushi eatery named mitsuo. must try. it´s small but it´s sushi and sashimi is oh so good! and this is coming from an asian!

Friendly, Efficient, Clean, safe area
Freindly and efficient front-desk and other staff. Basic breakfast included. Double room smallish but comfortable and clean. The four-bed rooms are rather cramped.
Restaurant Tip: Éat by weigt´restaurant just round the corner ideal for non-portugese speakers.

A poor quality hotel

I can't see any pros in this hotel
I would never stay in this hotel ever again. A low quality hotel that is going to crumble down quite soon in a boring location.

Hotel Paysandu in Rio is Great

Clean, quiet, safe, nice atmosphere, great staff, good beds, and tasty breakfast
I loved the Hotel Paysandu! Located in Flamengo, a part of Rio just north of Cocacabana, near the water, it is an older, small hotel in a quiet neighborhood, built in an art deco style, and retains an old-fashioned atmosphere. The lobby could be out of a movie from the 1940s, and the hotel has a doorman, bellboys, and very helpful desk clerks, especially Marcos, who speaks excellent English. My room was clean and quiet--in the back of the hotel with a view of a lovely garden (actually an area of some tall trees in a kind of a square made by surrounding apartment building). The shower had plenty of hot water, the bed was good, the room had tile floors, and windows that open. It is quite inexpensive for Rio--through Agoda I paid $52 a night for a large room with a double bed. There is a charge for using the wireless but it is not exorbitant. Breakfast was a buffet with fresh fruits, cereal, cheese, cold cuts, bread, and juices, along with great coffee with hot milk, and eggs on request. The dining room is nothing special, but it is comfortable and you can also have dinner there. There are nice cafes and restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood and excellent access to public transportation, including buses and the easy-to-use metro. You can get to Cocacabana or downtown on the metro in a few minutes, and there is a bus one block from the hotel that goes directly to the tram to Corcovado. There is also a taxi stand on the corner. The area around the hotel feels very safe. It was really nice to be in a part of Rio that didn't feel like a tourist zone, though a little inconvenient to get to a swimming beach. I stayed a week and would go back, now that I have learned how to take public transportation.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: It's really easy to take the bus to Corcovado (the mountain with the big Christ) about a fifteen-minute ride--it takes you to the last stop where you catch a tram to the top of the mountain. Well worth it and you can do this excursion in a half a day.
