One night stay

I will be going to Rio in May with 4 other adult family members. We will spend 3 nights in Rio and then 3 nights in Argentina. We return to Rio at midnight on a Friday and fly out Saturday night from GIG airport. Need suggestions as to hotels that may be close to airport maybe or in a safe area of town that is not expensive. Will need late check out. We will spend our 3 nights in Rio in the first leg of our trip in Ipanema.

The Linx Hotel at the International Airport (GIG) is the newest and nicest airport hotel, but it's very expensive:

The Luxor Aeroporto Hotel is located right in the airport, but it’s also expensive and gets very mixed reviews.

And there’s the Hotel Pousada Galeao, also in the airport, which gets horrendous reviews:

You might want to have a look at the Hotel Atlantico Business Centro.

The hotel is located 11 miles from GIG. Depending on traffic, it would take around 30 to 40 minutes to get there by taxi.

The Linx is very close to the terminal and offers a shuttle service from its facilities to the airport and vice-versa. It's the best rated airport hotel, but not cheap - what's cheap in Rio, anyway? I would go for it. Or, alternatively, take a cab and stay at Ibis Centro or Ibis Santos Dumont (the regional airport).

Thank you. I was considering the Ibis hotels but was not sure about the locations.

The linx is accross the airport and has a free shuttle bus. Safe, clean and you can eat there. Perfect when like me I arrived late at Rio and had a early flight the next day and prefered to sleep 45 minutes extra instead of driving in a taxi. I do see that the rates went up since as I had a decent deal.
