Cedro Hotel: Reasonably Good Place
[This tip is still undergoing development. Please stand by for photographs and other additions.]
The Hotel Cedro is very popular with Brasilians, and I recommend it but only with some warnings ahead of time. It is a nice enough place, and there is wireless internet available, but the computers they had in the public area (only two) were frequently busy, and one of them often didn't work well with certain web sites, including gmail. When I attempted to explain to the hotel staff that there was a problem, they did not wish to fix it, and said that there are problems with certain web sites (yet the other computer worked fine). Eventually it was fixed, but the fact is that internet in public places seemed to be a problem sometimes.
Internet access was also not present in some of the rooms. Certain rooms had good access, but certain others only had access in certain locations of the room, while other rooms had no internet access at all. There did not appear to be a network connection in any of the rooms either, so solving the problem with a cable connection doesn't appear to be possible either. The hotel lobby does have a reasonably good connection, but finding a place to plug into the wall was an interesting challenge.
There are electronic safes in each of the hotel rooms, but the previous occupants had left it closed so there was no way to start the process with mine as the instructions on the safe assume that it has been left open.
I have been told that the internet here works more often than the WiFi in the Crystal Palace, but at the same time it doesn't work in some rooms due to the construction of the hotel and the lack of routers that the Crystal Palace has. You may have to use the lobby (which seems to be what many people do).
On Wednesday evenings, there is usually a "happy hour" in the hotel bar and restaurant, which means they provide free food for the hotel guests as a thank-you present. The drinks do not come included - you have to pay for those.
Breakfast is reasonably good, but doesn´t include as wide a variety of items as some places might. There are a few fresh fruits, some cheeses, and an assortment of pastries including a chocolate cake, pão de quijo, and a few others. I was quite annoyed that the pão de quijo was frequently cold, as it is one item that really needs to be served hot to taste as good as it should.
The hotel is located where there isn´t much of view of anything except the city and streets, but at least with most windows there are no buildings right outside the window. This is not necessarily something that will be permanent, as there is always the chance that someone will build a building on one of the other blocks right next to the hotel. Basement rooms, however, are severely lacking in any sort of view.
The rooms are reasonably comfortable, but very compact, and what desk there is does not have an electrical outlet near it, and in fact there are only two electrical outlets: for the refrigerator and in the bathroom. The one in the bathroom turns off if you remove the key form the key holder by the door. Thankfully, the refrigerator has wheels, and this means it is easily moved in order to access the electrical outlet, and this does not shut off when the key is removed from the key holder. Thus, this is really the ideal location for charging digital camera batteries and the like while you are out to dinner or otherwise not in the room. (and I am quite certain the cleaning lady for my room kept wondering why does this idiot keep moving the refrigerator)
Reasonably close to downtown and located on a number of major bus routes that use Avenida JK. in the northwest part of the city. However, it isn't quite as convenient as a number of other hotels in the area as far as access to downtown goes.
The staff is quite friendly and willing to help in many ways, but only one or two of them are good at working with the computer problems that happen with their computers in the public areas.

Sahao Palace Hotel: This Hotel is Closed!
For quite some years, the Sahao Palace Hotel was one of the best located hotels in Londrina. However, it has been closed for a few years now due to an ongoing dispute between the two owners. It is a shame, due to its excellent location.
