We had an okay experience at Ibis Budget Botafogo. We stayed a total of 5 nights and our room was only cleaned once. The towels were regularly changed, but the our main issues were others: the bins were only emptied once - on the second last day, we even ran out of toilet paper and had to run to the reception to ask for more. We tried to send a message on their Whatsapp number dedicated for guests requests asking for toilet paper as well as for an extra pillow, but both messages were ignored. We also had a problem with our key card reader at the room door and the reception team were not helpful at all. After 4 attempts of switching the key cards, going up and down to the room, trying and failing, we finally asked to see the manager. Only then a staff member cared to see what was happening and followed us to the room. The hotel is well located, but this can not be its only positive feature.

Check-in is always a total mess

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Tayana B. M. Couples - 29/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

For the second consecutive time I stayed at Ibis Budget Botafogo the check-in was terrible. This time we arrived around 11:45 AM (we had a reservation already), waited some minutes in line, and when we got to the check-in we were informed that there still weren't clean rooms available, and they asked us to wait around 10 minutes. That was ok, so we sitted and waited in the lobby right in front of the check-in. It passed 20 minutes and I went back and asked for the rooms. So the receptionist said that the rooms were already available (and yet nobody told us, even if we were there ONLY waiting for this information), but we had to enter a huge queue AGAIN to check-in, where there were several people who arrived AFTER us in the hotel. The line was SO slow and we had a wedding to attend in a few hours. This hotel is so lacked of organisation and not reliable at all when we have an appointment in the city. The only good thing is that the location is great and the rooms are clean and comfortable. But you always get a headache to check-in.

Dear Tayana M., Thanks for your comment. We are pleased that our structure has met your expectations. Regarding your observation to the attendance, we working to improve the quality of care of our employees. We hope to see you soon. Sincerely, Team ibis budget RJ Praia de Botafogo

Well located; should take better care of room details

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Gabriel H. Business - 26/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Close to great points in the city, such as subway, shopping and restaurants. The room, although large, should have better concern in details such as cleanliness (body and head hair left on the bathroom), broken toilet seat and the floor of the room taking off, which I stumbled twice.

Dear P., We appreciate your post regarding our hotel. We apologize for any dissatisfaction you may have experienced during your stay. We will review the case carefully to review these points.

Victor Families - 22/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good experience overall, but with a few minor issues. An elevator had issues with the buttons, I've seen some guests having to exchange elevators after missing their floors because they couldn't press their floor buttons and that happened to me once. Why save a few bucks cutting shampoo? I believe the hotel could cut the TV instead - if you're in Rio you want to enjoy the city not watch the TV, specially if you're in a budget hotel. The location is not prime but it is very good and I recommend it.

Dear Edna M., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the ibis budget RJ Praia de Botafogo. Sincerely, Cordialmente, Messias Lobão Coordenador de Hospitalidade Novotel & ibis budget RJ Botafogo

Perfect location but some details to improve

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Luana I. Couples - 18/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Amazing location close to the Botafogo mall and subway but some details like sheets and towels need to be improved. Unfortunately there were roles in the sheets and the towels were so old that they were about to get home too

Dear Radek W., Thank you for your rating. We are happy to receive this feedback. You can be sure that we will work objectively to resolve the issue so that this kind of situation will no longer be repeated. Sincerely, Team ibis bugdet RJ Praia de Botafogo

Anonymous Families - 13/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Smelly rooms. Towel was removed after room was cleaned, concierge was useless in getting a replacement towel and after 2.5 hours had to chase a cleaner in the building to ask for clean towels.

Awesome hotel.

It took time to solve a problem with my check-in, and I was only able to get in my room after hours. The bathroom was really small, wich can be a little bit inconvenient for those who are sharing room.

I found the staff unkind and grumpy. The hotel is uncomfortable, facilities such as hairdryers and lockers are lacking. This was the first bad experience with the accor hotels, they are usually very nice. I fell disappointed with this hotel.

Very good in general, very tidy. Clean, confortable, although I felt unconfortable while using the bathroom and the room often smelled like someone have been smoking in there before me. The Lounge room decoration is excellent.

Dear Guest, Your words serve as a motivation for our team continues to strive daily to offer the best service possible. We hope to have the opportunity to enjoy your company again! Regards, Messiah Lobão Operational coordinator ibis budget RJ Botafogo

Good location, but quite basic and a bit noisy

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Sightsee28966868259 Solo travel - 05/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Very basic hotel, just as the name says. It was extremely crowded on NewYearsEve and the days around, so service was lousy and queues for breakfast long. For a few nights it’s an “ok” place to stay. But I would rather go for Ibis Styles (just around the corner with much better offer for a little higher price).
