“Just a few minutes to the Copacabana beach”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Excellent location .... just 5 minutes walk to the Copacabana beach, supermarket, restaurants (budget or expensive), metro station from where you can explore the city. The room is clean, comfortable but basic. It has nothing except a bottle of shampoo. No bottled water, no mini bar ... so you better buy some bottled water from nearby supermarket. The staff are helpful. Wifi is good.

We booked an airpot transfer operated by "shuttle Rio" & they dropped us off right in front of the hotel at R$20 per person. On the day we leave Rio, the hotel staff gave us a card so that we can take the taxi in front of the hotel at a fixed price of R$45.

Small sized room but very clean. Bed was confortable. Bathroom was a little bit small even for Ibis standards. There was a lot of noise from bathrooms upstair our room (you could hear bathroom flushing and showers).
Staff was nice and spoke fluent english. Price/quality ratio was OK for Copacabana.
I think the best feature of the Hotel was its location; two blocks from Cardeal Arcoverde metro station, from where you can easily go to Sugarloaf mountain, Corcovado, City center, Maracana stadium. Just a few blocks from the Copacabana beach. Neighbourghood has nice restaurants (Azumi, Quick galetos, Cafe La Fiducia). Small supermarket just around the corner. Just perfect for sightseeing and relaxing on the beach.

The Ibis was a great pick in Rio De Janeiro. Right next to the beaches and the main rio highlights i found myself in the hotel very little because of the vibrant nature of the city. When inside the room was pleasant and small, the staff always helpful with good english skills. The ibis hotels have that feel of being anywhere in the world but this one is so well located that you hardly realize you are in a standardized chain. Nice Stay

If you pay extra for the "unrestricted change and cancellation" privilege and pre-pay you probably think they would return your money if you cancel. Wrong! Accord Hotels (Ibis included) policy is that they keep your money!!!

Read the fine print: "Prepaid reservations cannot be changed or canceled. Sums paid in advance as a deposit will not be reimbursed. In this case, it will be stipulated in the sales conditions for the rate." Right, who really reads the fine print when booking.

Stayed at the Ibis Copacabana for 5 nights in a standard double room. The hotel is in a good location for exploring Copacabana and is close to restaurants, shops and public transport.

The Good:
- This was one of the cheapest 3+ star hotels I could find in Copa and represents good value for money
- The location is an easy 5 minute walk to Copacabana beach and only one block from a metro station and bus stops which serve Sugar Loaf mountain and Christ The Redeemer.
-The room is clean, reasonable sized with an equally reasonable sized bathroom.
- Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke varying levels of English.

The Average:
- The hotel is located at the top end of Copa, so it's a long walk to Ipanema.
- Breakfast (not included in room rate) was ok but nothing great.

The Bad:
- Dinner in the restaurant is very over-priced and poor quality (I ordered the chicken burger which turned out to be microwaved).
- The hotel does not offer a transfer service to or from the airport.

Overall, the Ibis is what you expect from an Ibis and provides a good standard of accommodation in an otherwise expensive part of Rio.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter

An Ibis is an Ibis, whether you are in Rio de Janeiro, Rome or Reykjavik. Decent, clean rooms and friendly staff. It's a new hotel so it's doesn't show any wear-and-tear yet. The best thing about the hotel is its location: 2 blocks away from Copacabana beach, right behind the Copacabana Palace Hotel.

This is a typical Ibis - good location, basic but clean accommodation and great value. The front desk staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. Free Wifi. The beach is a few blocks away, and the area felt pretty safe. Would definitely recommend.
