Great location across from the Iguatemi dispensing comments, cafe breakfast excellent and available for lunch and dinner and also if any, cable TV, internet, legal parking, suggest choosing rooms that are facing the avenue as it gives a great view and location in the city.

We went to Sao Carlos two weeks ago on a trip to visit Tam aviation museum that is located 30 minutes from Sao Carlos downtown. Because we were going to spend just a night in the city and leave early in the next morning we decided to make a choice based on best value we could get for our money. And that´t what we got in this hotel. Rooms are small but in my case they were well kept. I have noticed that in some of the previous reviews that was not the case. Bed is comfortable and bathroom was ok, but lacking amenities (if you want something like a shower cap you have to go to the reception and get one). Service was ok.
My only complain is that check in took more than we expected basically because there was just one hotel employee taking care of all guests checking in on a Saturday afternoon. And their check in process takes time because you have to pay in advance and also decide if you are going to have breakfast in the next day and pay for it separately (breakfast is not included in the room price).
Another think to consider is that this hotel is located somewhat far from downtown which works if you are not planning to get to know Sao Carlos as in our case, but it´s a thing to consider if you have business in town. On the other hand it is located in walking distance to a small mall with a big supermarket that helps if you want to buy groceries or just spend sometime strolling or watching a movie (bear in mind that movie theater is on the beaten side, does not accept credit or debit cards).

Ibis Hotel is a budget flag belonging to the Accor network, just one level above the popular and very low budget Formula 1. From the start, keep in mind that you are NOT supposed to expect 5 star accomodations, services and facilities. They NEVER promissed that. Instead, think of this hotel as a MacDonalds of the hotels. Simple, clean, no frills, good price and good service. Nothing more or less than that. My problem with this particular Ibis (São Carlos IBIS) is that it needs some improvements. For instance, the toilet in my room (room 361) was in quite bad shape. The carpet on my room´s corridor had some holes. In other words. It is OK to be simple, no-frills (I like that), but São Carlos Ibis DOES need some improvements and the manager should be aware of that. This is why I am giving a 3, and not a 4.

We chose ibis Sao Carlos as our home base to go and explore the Brotas region after reading a couple of reviews on Tripadvisor. We wanted a familiar product and good value for money - and we got just that! Comfortable rooms, great rainforest shower, nice breakfast with freshly baked "pao de queijo" (Brazilian cheese bread). The hotel is conveniently located in front of a big shopping mall - good for buying snacks and for its ATM facilities. Attention: when visiting the Brotas region have cash on you since most attractions do not accept any debit/credit cards! Overall a nice experience!
