Hotel ibis Rio de Janeiro Centro
Ranked #113 of 286 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Stayed here during Carnival. The centro location is excellent and the room and amenities are what you'd expect at an Ibis. Considering the alternatives during Carnival, this hotel was excellent value. After coming back from the Sambadrome in the early hours of the morning, the midnight buffet, while not that great, it was food! Unfortunately the service was a little disappointing and the check-in process painfully long.

It is a classic Ibis hotel: nothing more, nothing less. The service is good, considering the city standards. Pay attention to your restaurant/bar bill: they right down all items and you need to sign. And you keep no copy!

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.
