For the price and the location the hotel booked through Booking.com was very good as it was a last minute booking a few hours before flying to Belem in Brazil from Guyana. In addition the booking in Belem was difficult due to the fact that most hotels were already full due to a big religious event: Cirio of Nazareth. That obliged me to take a triple room for the 7 nights and pay a bit more but when the hotel management saw I was a single occupant the first night the the hotel changed and lowered the price of the room for single occupant for the 6 remaining nights (so from 129$Reals/night down to 70$Reals). Lastly the price also included a light and simple breakfast and free wireless internet that make it worth the price.
The area is a bit noisy during the day and at night does not look a safe area but taxi should be used and are easily accessible at the hotel and nearby so some people may not like it because of noise and security at night.
