            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.

            Hotel Paysandu in Rio is Great”

            Clean, quiet, safe, nice atmosphere, great staff, good beds, and tasty breakfast
            The closest beach, Flamengo Beach,while pretty, is not good for swimming because of low water quality.

            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.

            Service en ligging
            Traag internet en wifi moet gratis worden. Het hotel moet die service verlenen. Een uitgebreidere gedetaiieerde plattegrond met metro bus lijnen zou wenselijk zijn. Touristische info blijft achter.

            Ik ben 4 dagen in het warme rio geweest. Het is me goed bevallen. Juist door de ligging en de vriendelijke wijze waarop ik behandeld ben als gast. Uw hotel gaf mij een veilig gevoel. Graag zou ik meer willen weten wat er cultureel gebied ter plaatse te doen is. Er zijn voor zover ik weet geen touristinfo points. Misschien tot een volgende keer.

            Central in Rio for a decent price.
            Could be some things but overall you get exactly what you pay for.

            Room was ok, staff was ok, overall the hotell provides what you pay for. The breakfast buffet was a bit better than average. It is a well known hotell so Taxi drivers etc will always know where to take you. I would stay here again and would recommend it, but if you're expecting a luxurious or high class hotel you can forget it and step up a pricelevel.
