Breakfast, clean, quite, and location
Quality of towels , and options at the bar at the lobby
Helpful staff, with a special note of thanks to Bianca.
Breakfast has a great selection. Location was perfect to reach the main tourist sites and was also a few minutes walk to a metro station.
The key cards needed to be fixed several times as they wouldn't work on the lifts or the room door.
I very much enjoyed my 10-day stay at Ibis Botafogo. The location of the hotel is its big advantage (close to the underground station where from you could either go to the business centre of Rio (a switch to a tram is possible, later on) or towards more touristic areas like Copacabana / Ipanema. The breakfast buffet is rich to choose from (it stays the same every day, but that's not a problem at all). I also enjoyed lunches there twice - good ones (on Friday there was a possibility to select whatever one liked from a very broad range of local dishes - big plus). The prices were very competitive in comparison to various places in Rio city centre / Botafogo itself. I also appreciate the helpful staff at the reception and the bar/lunch room. The great majority spoke English very well (few did not, but it was still much, much better than nearly elsewhere in Rio). The room was fine, clean, bed comfortable, there was a place to work. The air condition was effective, what was a big plus since if someone opens windows (I did it) you immediately got the horn symphony from outside (that's how motorcyclists fight for their lives in the busy streets).
I could only complain about one thing. In the evening the data transfer of the hotel wifi was very, very slow (sometimes the Internet was hardly working at all). In the mornings / early afternoon it was ok. It may be that my expectations are based on European standards.
location - near subway, neat reception, quiet and spacious rooms
too little toiletries kit containing 1 small soap + a bagged shampoo. Ibis all over the world have the shampoo attached to the wall. I was expecting that this would be like that as well but it wasnt'
