We spent four nights in April 2014 here. It is located in a very nice residential area. Shopping, restaurants, and the metro are all within walking distance. The rooms are compact but comfortable. Free WIFI was a plus.
As with many places, we found some of the front desk staff to be very friendly and helpful, and others less so. Overall would recommend a stay.

Stayed for one night prior to leaving Rio International Airport the following evening. Located in the Botafogo area which is in South Rio.

Check in was slow and took about 15 minutes. Lots of security staff on duty at the entrance. Dont expect great views! The Hotel is downtown so not a lot to see out the windows.

Would advise going out to eat as the menu is not extensive.

Would give breakfast a miss also. Coffee from a machine.... why?

Rooms are good, spacious and have a walk in shower.

About a 1.5 hour drive to the main international airport so give yourself plenty time before leaving. Plenty taxis outside and a taxi rep will flag one down for you right away.

Only stayed two nights here, but it was conveniently located for the main tourist sights and there were some great restaurants within walking distance. The hotel itself was fine, the rooms were pleasant, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also very good. . . a really good selection of food, from fruit and yoghurt to a nice selection of breads and cakes. The staff were pleasant and helpful but we were totally amazed that as we checked in on the first day, the young guy at reception spent the whole time stuffing his face with food right in front of us!!! I think a bit more staff training is needed!

Overall it is a good hotel, with all the Ibis characteristic but unfortunately was spoilt by poor service.

Pros
- Good location
- Clean
- Plentiful breakfast at 16 Real but not as appetising as it could have been

Cons
- I tried to book a cab to the airport which was recommended to me. The taxi firm did not speak English. I asked Clarissa, at reception, if she could help call on my behalf and she refused to help me.
I was quite appalled by her attitude and that has spoilt my experience at Ibis. Being an experienced traveller, I have visited many hotels and not once have i encountered a refusal to help.
- No tourist maps kept at reception
- Generally unfriendly staff but the security chaps did manage to squeeze a smile out for us.
