Wife and I checked in very early morning on New Year's eve.
You can tell when you walk into the Ibis hotel in Botafogo that it's really a business hotel. But as far as business hotels go I found their staff to be extremely friendly, polite and helpful.
They were very helpful with tips on travelling to and from the celebrations on Copacabana beach, on how to stay safe, where to avoid, where to eat, what to wear etc. etc. They weren't set up to make dinner reservations or book taxis, but they would always point us in the right direction.
The rooms were a bit cramped, and with lots of fluorescent white lighting. Not very relaxing. The bathrooms were nice and spacious and the showers powerful. There usually weren't enough towels but they would happily give you extra if you went downstairs. (There is no room service.). Also the AC could be a bit temperamental- a little too cold in the night and not cold enough by early morning.
