Paysandu is possibly the worst hotel I've ever been to.
I had a reservation for 2 nights. The first room we were given was unattractive, but at least had a good deal of natural light. However, it smelled like it had just been vacated by...how do I put this?...an old prostitute. Unbelievable, unbearable stench of cigarettes and nasty, cheap perfume. There was no way anyone could have tolerated it. We returned to the front desk, explained the problem and were issued a new room, albeit very reluctantly, by the front desk clerk, who clearly thought we were being unreasonable.
The second room was the size of a closet. It barely contained the hard, discolored old bed. There was one small window in the room, next to the bed. It looked out onto a damp, filthy air shaft. No, I don't travel to stay in my room and am pretty tolerant of budget accommodations, but this was downright depressing.
We stayed our obligatory 2 nights, then got out of there. There are many other nicer options in the neighborhood for roughly the same price or just a little bit more. We wound up at the Rondonia, which was paradise in comparison. I strongly advise avoiding the Paysandu Hotel.
