“A good option in Rio”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Located close to Santos Duont airport, (but you can go walking only if you have a small hand luggage!); rooms are standard Ibis, decently kept: a good bed, a clean and functionnal bathroom, kept clean: it is already more than what more expensive hotels offer...
A restaurant offers basic meals, and it is convenient as the city center is absolutely dead in the evening and during week ends. Good choice for breakfast.
Efficient front desk, with english speaking staff.
The very shocking point is the terrible state of the corridor's carpets: many ugly stains, nearly in front of every doors. A complete change is really urgent, and obviously another type of floring should be selected....

Room Tip: Some rooms face a more quit backyard (parking)

Stayed here over New Years when Rio hotel prices go through the roof and you have to book for 5 or 7 days. Ibis holds its price and you can still book on a night by night basis. Great bs links and local metro as well for getting down town. Excellent reception staff who speak English and are always happy to help. Rooms are if a good size clean and functional.

Was there for just one night. They gave me a room and was occupied.
What a surprise, we called reception and no one could help, had to go downstairs and make a complain.
For an IBIS charge 100 Euros is too much altough we are in Rio. Same levels worth no more then 40 Euros.
It is abusive,

Like any Ibis, do not come with high expectations - you wont be disapointed.
Clean room, decent bathroom and shower. Bed felt like I was sleeping on plastic sheets.
Very efficient check in / out.
Located near Rio Domestic Airport SDU.
Decent hotel for man on the go with a tight expense account.

I liked the location the most, because it is nicely located nearby Santos Dumont airport, and I stayed there a few hours to get a rest between my 2 flights. The rooms are a bit too small, although conveniently fornitured.
Staff is proffesional and are so used to deal with shor time customers...all correct !

The best part of it has to be its walking distance from the airport - very practical. Don't worry about not being exactly close to Rio's main attractions: it's only a US$7.50 taxi ride from Copacabana, for instance. It's not the cleanest or tidiest Ibis I've ever been to, but does its trick.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer a nicer view.

Good location to Rio's Domestic Airport and in the middle of the business district. Problem is cannot walk to restaurants after say 1800. Most everything is closed. You take a taxi or eat in. It is a business hotel so do not expect much. Utilitarian is the word I am looking for. It works, clean, good airport location..internet is FREE and has average speed. Close to downtown or Central Business Offices...Do not go out at night for a walk. Not a real good area for that.

If you want a shower, clean room, something to eat (not a dining experience) and airport close. (not much noise from the airport) then this is your hotel. Average Price.
