Ibis Rio de Janeiro Botafogo Hotel

Reviewed 3 December 2013

The hotel is well located for business if you are in need of reaching places nearby. Also, if you have some time free there is a mall nearby, at walking distance (maximum 10 minutes) called Botafogo Praia Shopping. The mall has shops and food court, and movie theaters. It is ok to spend some time after work, but if you need to really by something take a taxi to Rio Sul mall which is really close and maybe Leblon mall which are more fashionable. There is a "Hortifruti" shop even closer where you can buy food and beverage, but it was closed on Sunday when I arrived. The hotel provides good breakfast services, the room was quite and clean, adn services are overall good. The only weakest klink regarding this is in fact the 24-hour bar where you need to get your beverages, sandwiches and fast food snacks, Everytime I tried to buy something (Sunday and Monday) there was no one there and I had to ask at the reception to find the person responsible for it. All in all, a good business stay and would stay here again. Nevertheless, if you are planning a vacation this would not be a number one chopice due to the distance to the main beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema (they could be reached either by subway ou bus or taxi, but it takes some effort, and sometimes it is better to pay a little bit more and stay closer to the beaches if you are in need of rest. But, as mentioned, a perfect stay for business.

The hotel design is simple and organize. The breakfast corner provides variety choices of food. The location is strategy, walking distance to Botafogo subway station and attraction like Santa Marta. Although the staff is friendly and helpful, but limited travel information obtained due to the language barrier. Overall, the hotel is suitable toward business trip.

New (less than one year old) hotel well situated to access various town districts and attractions. Good breakfast. Pricey (but unfortunately a tendency of all hotels in Rio de Janeiro).
Employees (reception and restaurant) still need more training as there are small flaws, comented in other reviews.
Will return if opportunity arises.

Room Tip: Higher rooms (8 / 9 floor) are quieter.

I stayed at the Ibis for a week, while in Rio on business. The rooms are small, but the bed is comfortable and the shower is hot and powerful. The internet connection is OK. Service is as you would expect for the room rate, which is very competitive. If you need an affordable hotel in Rio while on Business, the Ibis Botafogo is probably a very good choice. Overall, the hotel is nothing special.

Room Tip: There is a good bakery down the road.

Unless the annoying noise of some air conditioning equipment, the place looks reasonable, but somewhat expensive compared to other similar Ibis locations.
The staff is helpfull. There is a nice restaurant.
