We booked a double private room with a private bathroom at this location for three nights. It is in a very central location on a very busy pedestrian street. The entire property is very low quality. Our television didn't work, two out of the four lights in the room did not work, material was falling down from the ceiling in the shower. In addition, there are no safes in the rooms or at the front desk, and the locks on the door are very flimsy and could be easily broken. We did not feel comfortable leaving our valuables here. The rooms were clean but everything was old and worn, and despite what any reviews or booking sites claim, THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING.
However, the worst part of our experience here at Pensao Modelo was the noise. It was louder outside our room at 3 am than it was at any point during daylight hours. Garbage collection trucks, people yelling and breaking glass, kids skateboarding down the street. It was absolutely horrible. We had stayed out decently late but by the time it rolled around to 2:30- 3:00 am, we were ready to go to sleep and it was absolutely impossible. We checked out after the first night and moved to a new property and we are so happy we did!
