Before I went there, I checked the street view on google, and felt that I was quite a sketchy street. Once I got there, I learned I was completely wrong. The buildings nearby just look old, that's all. This hotel is just 2 blocks away from the Obelisk and on the small narrow road which is very safe for walking because there are a lot less traffic than the main road. Restaurants are abundant, and from salad bars to high end places and mostly on the next block which is only for pedestrians, no cars. Walking to the Casa Rosada area is just about 10 minutes.
I didn't book my room with breakfast because I wasn't sure if I had enough time for it, but then I decided to have it. The cost was about the same as if I paid in advance, no surprise, kudos for that.
During my stay I had some difficulty with my tour, the lady at the front desk was really helpful, and spent enough time for me to finally got through to the right person and nailed it down to get the tour to pick me up eventually.

Do you want to take a trip back in time? A genuine trip back in time? Well, then look no further than the Augusto's Paissandu Hotel. Fiendly staff. Excellent Location. Safe, clean and decent. And, boy!!! The value is the best part. There is no way you will find a hotel this inexpensive in Rio, while still at a very good location and pretty safe and decent, family oriented.
For those of you who commented on the Staff's inability to speak english. Well, get of your high horse and learn some portuguese. Use google translator, or a dictionary. Or, ask them for a Tourist Guide.
I'm never again staying at the expensive Copacabana and Ipanema Hotels. After all, this hotel is just 10 minutes from Copacabana, and a third of thee price. Metro is right next door, and you are located on the most historical street in Rio, which the palm trees that were planted by the EMperoro back in the 17th hundreds.
Wonderfull!!!! Definetely recommend.

We only had 1 night to spend in Sao Paulo and we decided to stay close to Avenida Paulista. Royal Jardins was a great choice, located close to the busy Avenida Paulista but in a calm neighbourhood. The hotel facilities, services, hygiene and breakfast were excellent. It is not the cheapest option but it's worth the money.
