“Well located, regular staff and rooms, bill to pay attention”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Location is great, close to metro stations, bars and restaurants, Lapa at only 200m. Rooms are just regular as expected for a crowded hotel, staff to be trained, patience to check in and out, restaurant and lobby at same place creates a mess. Patience for the restaurant as well. Pay close attention to the bill when checking out to avoid other's expenses on yours.

It's a budget hotel, so don't expect fast service:it does take a while to check in and there are not many English speakers, but the rooms are adequate and clean, with a safe and free wi-fi.
The all-in breakfast is good value.

Ibis Rio de Janeiro Centro is a regular Ibis Hotel, with the same standard room you will find in the average hotel of this chain. Room was clean, with LCD TV, minibar, air conditioning, safe, standard toilet with shower. No surprises.
During the day, the location is good: near Tiradentes Square, surrounded by churches and ancient buildings, along with very modern skyscrapers. At night, after business hours when shops and restaurants are closed, it is somewhat desertic and scary. Nevertheless, there are a few theaters nearby and there´s a taxi stand just around the corner. Subway station Carioca is about 500m away, which is a short distance during the day, but very far at night.
Hotel has a really average restaurant that serves all meals at an almost fair price. The small restaurant is generally crowded, particularly at night, probably because of the lack of choices at this hours nearby.
For a business trip, it is ok. Tourists should look for something nearer to the main beaches. Prices are not as low as in a regular Ibis

I travel a lot to Rio and this Hotel is getting worse every day. Needs a renovation to be up to the standards of an Ibis hotel.
For tourists, the location is far from good. Very dodgy and unsafe area at night and no good dinning options.
Hotels in Rio are usually overpriced, this is too. You get a 2 stars for the price of 4.
Better to stay at one of the other Ibis in the city.

The area is surrounded by a couple od discotheques, so the noise goes until 3 or 4 in the morning.
Not a good plea to rest when traveling to have a relaxing time.

The front desk manager was not friendly or service oriented at all, a cleaning lady help him to do my cheek in. I was surprised by that situation.

Room Tip: make sure your room doesn't face the plaza or street side.

In my mind when I think about an Ibis hotel I expect a fair cost-benefit deal, at least for the not cheap rate I paid. It was a 1 night business trip to Rio and a lot of problems/obstacles. First it took a while to check-in than I was told they didn't offer service room (it means if you want a bottle of water you have to go to the restaurant and take it yourself). When I just open the room’s door a very strong bleach smell met me. To end up the experience I had to take what they call ‘earlier breakfast’ at 6:15am. Old food, very few options and non-talking staff to assist you. Interesting point: I thought Ibis was supposed to be a business trip hotel so breakfast should start at least at 6:00am, but it doesn’t, it starts at 6:30am. I was 15 minutes from the ‘full breakfast’ and I could take it!

Room Tip: The building is in the center of Rio, so I guess all rooms are a little bit noisy, but tolerable.
