The Hotel Ibis Florianopolis is locateded in the heart of the CBD and a short walk from the bus station. It is also close to the main city promenade, some decent restaurants, city attractions and public transport.

Positives: the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and spoke good english. Check in was smooth and pleasant (thanks Vince) and the staff helped with tips about what to do during our short stay iin Florianopolis. The hotel is large (10 stories) but was quiet when were were there. The room was located on the 9th floor and had a nice view of the bay and downtown area. There was also no perceivable road noise, probably because we were so high up. The bed was a large king and very comfortable and the bathroom was adequate with great shower pressure. There was free wifi, although we had problems initially in activating it. Breakfast cost an extra R$14 but was a buffet with 'all you can eat'. The hotel overall was modern with some wear and tear in the elevators and hallway carpets.

Negatives: the room was decorated on the cheap with some signs of marks and wear and tear. The walls were pretty thin and you could hear your neighbours, as well as the room above walking around. Oddly (and a little bit disturbingly) there was a whiteboard behind the reception desk that stated the room numbers and surnames of guests who had message at reception waiting for them. This is somewhat concerning form a privacy perspective!

Overall a great stay that exceeded my expections and made more enjoyable by the friendly staff attitude. This was our first 'Ibis experience' and it was a positive one which has encouraged us to consider staying at Ibis hotels in other destinations in the future. Value for money score 8/10

Room Tip: Request high up to get a good view and avoid road noise

This is your standard no frills hotel. However, the price is right and the rooms are clean. The staff is helpful and the rooms clean. I did not eat at the restaurant but there are not a lot of choices in the vicinity. The hotel is located at the "center" of town. It is actually far away from just about anywhere you want to go on the island. The good points of the hotel are: fair price, nice staff, and clean rooms. I would stay there again.

We stayed there on April 12 till April 13, was clean and no fuss. We ate misto quente because was late and they did not offer room service or hot food, $5 each, basic ham and cheese.
Morning breakfast can cost $7.50 per person, we wait till after 10:00 and got the price for $4.00 per person because you don't have the breakfast buffet. I did not like the price much for buffet b/c i do not eat much. Anyway, overall was great but don't expect a personal experience, those guys know how to run an exceptional business. What i like the most is the hotel effort to work towards keep the planet alive but reminding the guests to use less towels and not changing sheets everyday.

Room Tip: This is for one day passing to go to the beach, not for many days, it's cold! Rooms are very qui...

Located near the center of the city and next to the park that gives access do the old Hercilio Luz bridge - Florianopolis landmark, this hotel, like any other hotel in the Ibis chain is a good option if your stay is short.

We arrived without a reservation from a long uncomfortable bus ride from Iguassu, checking in was easy the service spot on. It is a basic hotel but had everything we needed and a bit more, not far from the bus station. Breakfast was extra but good value with a wide choice of food, I was very happy with my stay here even though it was one night.
