After a few nights in a rather disappointing hotel onm the beach, I moved here as it was closer to the airport for my fairly early flight.
It's located very close to the Lapa viaduct and Lapa district which is a hotspot at weekends with plenty of bars and restaurants. As with many areas in Rio, you need to know where you're walking as some of the areas here are a little 'shady'.
Check-in was very quick, and I was given a room on a high floor. The lobby is standard IBIS, with a large bar/breakfast area on one side and the reception on the other.
Room was also standard IBIS, double bed, flat screen TV, and the usual bathroom pod in the corner. Wi-fi was free and the reception was quite good in my room.
I had breakfast included, and although the selction is slightly limited it wasn't too bad to start the day.
Check-out was a little slow, so I just dumped my key and ran as I didn't have time to hang around.
Overall, no problem with this place, typical IBIS standards and seeing as it cost less than a third of the very shaby place I stayed on the beach, I was very happy.
