Hi,

Well like the name suggests IBIS Budget hotel, i was expecting it to be a regular ibis sorts very basic and minimal room! But to my surprise it was even worse than that, very very compact and a room in which a smallest of the living being would feel suffocated. The lobby is nice and swanky giving you a feel that it wouldn't be that bad, but as soon as you open the room door you would be surprised how small it is.
The bathroom and the toilet are two separate sections again very very tight on space, one can maybe just stand straight to have a shower. The TV in the room just have 4 channels, not even one in english!! They have a dinning area which servers breakfast, lunch and dinner at a very high price! They have a vending machine in the lobby with a server who helps you with your order incase you are looking at a take away.
I was there for just a night as had reached via a night flight and had no other option. The very next day i moved to a much better hotel
I would strongly would not recommend any one this hotel unless they can't find any other place to stay in Rio and trust me you would get much better places around. Don't fall for this at all

Hope this helps

Thanks,
Saurabh

When I arrived with my group (7 girls - athletes of synchronized swimming) I couldn't stay. Earlier at the afternoon, I had called to the hotel that we will arrived late, because the traffic at the road, the hotel has canceled our reservation. AND WHAT THE HOTEL DID FOR US? NOTHING! Simply put us at the street...Great Hotel....

The hotel is very very very basic, in the middle of downtown.
There´s no restaurants or nice places nearby.
The rooms are smaller than you can imagine and there isn't phones.
The wifi don't work and the employees wasn't able to help me... they just didn't care and ignored me.

I've stayed there a lot of times before. After they changed the brand to "budget" it became poor, roons not to clean, air conditioning noise, clothes are no so clean... I was really upset with this decadency of the hotel, because it has a marvelous localization

Good location near Lapa neighborhood with nice pubs and restaurants.
The hotel is all 220V and use the new standard plug adopted by Brazil. remember to check your accessories are compatible and to bring an universal adapter.

Room Tip: Rooms in the end are quieter.
