“Quick Sleepover”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

My G/F and I with baby used this for late night arrival to sleep and get showered. Good location. Very cheap and cheery. Probabaly ideal for younger people on budget - but not so great for young families. Breakfast disappointing. But we slept well!

Room Tip: Go higher up - much more peaceful

Cheap and cheerful and great location for Rio centro and nightlife but on a Saturday night you get an earful. Great view from the room but also faces directly onto a v lively and loud nightclub playing until 7am. Avoid if you aren't planning to stay out most of the night and aren't a heavy sleeper.

Me and my sister stayed here for a couple of nights when we visited Brasil last year. The hotel itself was very easy to find when using public transport because there is a massive main square nearby and a few landmarks such as a police station that you can familiarise yourself with. The Carioca train station was about 1/4 a mile away and takes you to all of the tourist attractions / near the beaches.
Check-in was very easy and the staff were very pleasant.
Our room was very basic but I must say more than I expected for the price! Very clean with a double bed bunk and a small shower but we spent a max of 5/6 hours a night in the hotel so we wasn't too fussed!
Next door (as part of the same building) was the Ibis which was a little pricier but still in the Accor hotel group. I have heard that this hotel has now merged with Ibis to form an Ibis Budget hotel. I'm sure it is the same if not, a touch better.
We didn't have breakfast here as we flew out to another town for a few days but they allowed us to pay a small fee to leave our bags in their storage room every night in which we were grateful for.
As for the surroundings there are quite a few clubs nearby. Across the street is an electronica club where the queues go around the block! This is for the younger scene.
If you walk a little further into Lapa then you can find clubs/bars where they play authentic Brasilian music and find a buzzing samba scene. Take note, you will not get in unless you bring your passport. We queued for an hour to discover this (although they kindly let us skip the queue when we returned!). Also, drink prices are not cheap. Think london prices.
Finally I would like to add that the neighbourhood where the hotel is located in is perfectly safe. This is coming from two 19-20 year old girls who spent two weeks alone traveling around Brasil. Lapa has a bad reputation for safety but you just need to keep to the main roads and be smart!
Without a doubt I will be returning here on my next visit to Rio!!

It's a good budget hotel, the name has changed recently to Ibis Budget. Fast taxi trip from and to Santos Dumont Airport. Poor breakfast, but at a low cost anyway (around USD 5). If you want something better, I'd suggest Confeitaria Colombo (bakery) approximately 10 min walk from the hotel, it's a must see place, wonderful! A tip, brazilian wall sockets and plugs changed recently, so, take your plug adaptor with you, however, if you check behind the television, it's still the old socket, that accepts the american standard plug!

Comparing to hotel prices in Rio, this hotel is a good option. Be prepared for lack of common stuff we usually find: minibar, fluffy pillow, lot of TV channels. There is paid Wi-Fi connection (at fair price), but you need an exclusive code for each device (a phone an a computer mean 2 codes).

I find too much hair on everything, which lead me to give lower grade on cleanness.
