“Outdated and noisy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Despite its location just across the street from Congonhas airport this hotel was not a good choice for my stay in Sao Paulo. Rooms look old and the plumbing was extremely noisy. The bathroom in my room became flooded during the night. It definitively was not what you expect from a hotel from this chain (it was more like an Ibis Budget priced as an Ibis)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Spent one night here between our arrival flight from the states and next mornings flight to Rio. The hotel is a two minute bus transfer ($5) from Congonhas airport. Was weary at first due to some of the reviews but in the end the hotel was perfect. It is a very simple room however the TV worked fine and the A/C worked great. Bed was amazing also (although 36 hours of sleep deprivation may have influenced this). Breakfast was worth the $7 charge (fresh fruit, bread, cerea, coffee, juice, cold cuts, ect). Internet was also included and the hotel lounge/bar had resonably priced beer/soda/water. I would stay there again for a night between flights.

Perfect for anyone wishing to spend a night at an airport ---Within walking distance and a few bars and shops nearby but i would not recommend straying too far at night--Hotel also has an excellent buffet from 7pm at night and is well worth the money

I have been in this Ibis hotel many times in the last 4 years.
The hotel is just in from of Sao Paulo's domestic airport name Congonhas.
You can walk from the airport to the hotel.
It is a standard Ibis hotel with a good rate.
It is not far from downtown, around 30 minutes.

There are two pluses with this hotel. Convenience is one of them if you want to be close to the Congonhas airport. The second is cleanliness. The room is definetely clean.

On the other hand, hotel is old an very basic. The qualit of food is below average. You end up paying for everything other than the room, even transportation to the airport across the street.

Bottom line us that if you simply looking for a room close to te airport, this is it. Don't expect much more, but note that they have a restaurant and bar.

Nice hotel that me & my fiance stayed at. Only 1 problem, even though they're signs that's bilingual [English & Portuguese], NONE of the friendly staff there was bilingual & only knew Portuguese. I was fortunate enough that my fiance's Brazilian & she translated what I needed to know, so I guess I shouldn't really complain. So either learn Portuguese or be with someone that's coming with you that knows Portuguese if you're planning on staying at this hotel. Other then that, again it's a great hotel to where the staff was friendly & it was near a location where local buses were at.

The domestic airport is just across the street. We always choose this hotel when we need to wake up and take the airplane early in the morning: you can go to the airport walking. This is a simple but nice hotel. The service could be better, though, as there are always check-in lines. One good thing is that you can't hear the airport noise.
