Excellent service and location in downtown near by Republica Metro Station. Confortable rooms and a good breakfast. There are important buildings like Edificio Italia, Edificio Copan and Gallery of the Rock that you can go walking.

DIRTY ROOM!!!

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

P4322IJdanim Business - 03/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

It was horrible. First because I arrived tired, looking forward to take a shower and I was informed that the hotel was without water!! Desperate situation. Luckily, the water was coming back and it did not take long to get a shower. The worst about my experience in this hotel was being sent to a DIRTY room !! Yes!! With used and dirty towels on the room: one of them was wet and lying on the chair, and the other one was lying on the floor next to the bathroom. The bed was made, with no pillows, and I was not sure if was dirty too. If the towels had not been thrown there, I might not even have noticed that the room was dirty. An absurdity. I was disgusted, and I just did not go to another hotel because it was late (about 11:00 pm). I was transferred to another room and it was all right (at least I think so ...), however, I do not intend to stay at this same hotel any more, only if I really have no other choice. Tell me, how could your team send me to a DIRTY room?! It is disappointing. VERY DISAPPOINTING AND DISGUSTING! I hope I'll never get through this again.

Slowly happening

alanrG9937FK Friends getaway - 22/11/2017 TripAdvisor review

The hotel was under maintenance and there was dust all over the entrance. The guestservice was poor and slow, people without proper information demanding too much documents and information. Online check in and nothing are the same. Took us around 40 minutes to proceed with the check in and thats because we did the online check in before. Imagine if we haven't. The bathroom privacy is definetely poor and terrible, there is no lock on the door and you have to go thought the room if you want to go from the toilet to the bathtube...Thats extemely bad and even worse if you share the room with some company you don't have enought intimacy with.

Sr Alan, bom dia! Obrigado pelo retorno, lamentamos o fato de não atender suas expectativas. Estamos a disposição. Gerência - ibis budget São João

rosanas894 Business - 16/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

Upon arriving in the room I noticed the sink clogged and I informed the reception, however I was not attended at any time of my stay. The drain was disgusting with hair. Unfortunate. It is worth remembering that I am a customer and whenever I travel to any Brazilian city or not, the first option is always Ibis.

Good Morning! I apologize for not fully meeting your expectations. Let's work to solve the above points.

A law suit Waiting to happen

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

T G Business - 15/03/2017 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is a danger. Principally for 2 reasons 1) On arrival on the 20th floor the hall ways was flooding through the grates on the walls.It was raining heavily outside and water was oozing in. I walked to my room as the carpet squelched underfoot2) on entering the room i went to close the window. The handle came off the window as it had not even been screwed on. The bolt that was suppose to keep the handle on the window flew off and down 20 floors- if someone had been stood underneath it would have cause serious harm or worse. Of because the window did not close the noise of the street could be heard all night. Added to the flood water from the hall way creeping towards the gap under my door and the broken window, this meant that when it rained I had to keep all my cloths and luggage in the bathroom as it was9 ironically) the driest part of the room! The staff were friendly but could not speak English so my report to them of the flood and the broken window was not delt with. Also of note is that my colleagues were deeply concerned at the hotels location ( the were Sao Paulo residents) apparently the location is known to be a bad area and dangerous to walk there at night. This did not bother me as I took taxis everywhere but , given that local people were telling me not to walk in that area at night , I think maybe if thats something that potential guests my be concerned with then it worth putting this on the review.

Good place for one night

This hotel is a good place for the people want stay only one nigth. The size os room is perfect for a couple with this objective. in my case I went to SP only for one party on Saturday and stay on this hotel.

Cheap, good localization, take care around at night

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

rogeriop660 Business - 11/03/2017 TripAdvisor review

It is cheap, close to subway, bus stations, restaurants, museums and (old) downtown. It is safe during the day. It seems to be pretty safe to walk on the main streets at night However, you should take care to walk around other streets at night.

Great place and fair price.

ivanildofagundes Friends getaway - 16/12/2016 TripAdvisor review

Great young receptionist, good cleanliness and great place. It is in the middle of downtown Sao Paulo, close to the main tourist attractions and means of transport enough bundles in the region. Free wi-fi access throughout the hotel, only missing a minibar and a phone.

Noising during the night due the beside room. The attendant on reception is not so nice. The place is located with few options to eat, there wasn't a bakery for instance. There is no intercom in the room.

Staff who sends emails threatening to cancel checkin after 18:00 even though a credit card was given

Staff who sends emails threatening to cancel checkin after 18:00 even though a credit card was provided. Staff feels that they can cancel a pre-arrival checkin although a credit card full details has been provided since I have done the reservation.

The first room we were offered was smelling sewage, then we complained at reception and our room was changed to one which was good. The breakfast is simple but good and the live music was pleasant The mattress could be better.

Good Afternoon, Tkanks for rating, we will work the points mentioned in the survey We wait for you soon in our hotel.

Terrible Hotel

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

gabriel_mello Solo travel - 25/04/2016 TripAdvisor review

No doubt the Ibis Budget is the worst choice of hotel. The service is poor, the breakfast terrible and the room looks like an Egyptian sarcophagus. I understand that it is an economic hotel, but at this price there are much better hotels in São Paulo
