The staff at the Hotel were very friendly and helpful even before we flew out to Rio. One staff member in particular, Marcus helped us get settled and made a lot of recommendations. He's a great asset to the Hotel.
Although there is not much to do nearby, Lapa is a short(and cheap...for a Londoner) taxi ride away. Copacabana and Ipanema can also be reached by Metro.
The buffet breakfast was good value for money, although there was not that much variety.
The wifi was very bad in our room, but we were told they were changing providers at the time.
During its heyday this hotel was really nice. Now expect one of the four elevators to be out of service most of your stay. It is fine, not in bad shape, and for the amount of time you will likely be in the hotel, perfect. Our room was updated and comfy, bathroom looked great, shower pressure was awesome, and view was great. There are soccer courts right in front with big lights shining on them and probably into your room until the AM so definitely draw the curtains.
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 stayed at Regina twice in October as a group of 4 and then 5 on a 2 week break in Brazil. Both times the hotel was excellent, extremely helpful staff, spacious and clean rooms and a fantastic breakfast offering. I would highly recommend.

The hotel is located near Praia do Flamengo, Aterro do Flamengo, a park that possesses gardens designed by Roberto Burle …More
Flamengo is a quiet residential area within easy reach of downtown and Copacabana. Here, foreign embassies stand alongside restored art-deco homes. The 300-acre Parque do Flamengo park complex dominates the neighborhood’s shore. Nearby, the hilly artist commune of Santa Teresa—accessible by a trolley atop a Roman-style aqueduct—is renowened for its bars, restaurants, museums, and ateliers.
