I was based here for 3 weeks during the World Cup in 2014. A very clean modern and comfortable place to stay in a great location with easy access to the Metro for getting around in Rio. The Hotel itself is pretty anonymous in that nobody bothers you there. Some of the reception staff speak english and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. It has a nice restaurant where we ate a buffet breakfast each morning but I can't comment on it's offering for lunch or dinner but lunchtime did seem busy. The rooms are the size what you would expect for a budget hotel but have nice comfy beds and a good shower. The Hotel has a bar within the reception area so that is not very private but is totally adequate and the barman who was on duty most evenings most nights during our stay makes a wicked Caiparinha. In fact, I would say one of the best in Rio!. The only slight complaint and it is very minor was the poor quality of the wi fi. It was also a shame that it did not have a pool, but Copacabana Beach was only one stop on the metro

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road side of the hotel as it will be much quieter

I stayed in this hotel for over a month and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are not big but very comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel is great, near to the Metro so you can move around the city easily, lots of bars and restaurants in walking distance. It is relatively quiet for Rio. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Ibis.

We just spent a night here when we arrived in Rio before heading out to another place out of Rio. We were very pleasantly surprised, as we do not usually stay in chains, but prefer a more personalized B & B experience. The location of this hotel was perfect, 3-5 min from the Botafogo Subway station, which is a big plus. The room had all the basic amenities, which for us is safety and comfort! Comfortable beds/quiet for a good night's rest, hot water in the shower, clean room/bedsheets etc, and good free wifi. The check in and check out was quick was we had already paid online. A shoutout to two of the front desk staff, who provided really good service, I think it was Cristiano in the evening, & Phillipe in the morning. They helped us with directions/ local bus to take to Pao de Acucar, and also navigating the website for an out of town bus trip. We had a nice stay, and it was at a reasonable price (in comparison to everywhere else we looked at in Rio, that was really expensive during the FIFA WC). We actually might look consider IBIS again for the value that they provide, hoping it will provide a similarly good experience and stay. Thanks.

Very good hotel, in the senter of Botafogo. Near by underground, restaurants and shopping. Very good service at the hotel, even for Our gang, 19 persons total. Be aware - not many speaks English in Brasil...

Room Tip: All rooms are good...

I stayed at the Ibis Botafogo for 2 weeks during the 2014 World Cup and despite there being a lot of guests, the service was terrific! The check-in was much faster than during previous stays and the staff were very helpful with all of my requests. Most of the staff speaks good English and are very friendly. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to the subway, restaurants and shopping. The rooms are very basic, but are clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
