Actually Ibis Budget RJ Praia de Botafogo was closed due to covid19 and I was accommodated in Novotel RJ Praia de Botafogo just next door at no extra cost. Great stay from the start to the end. I even extended my stay. Next time I am in Rio I would book this hotel. Plus the area is very nice with lots of shops, bars, restaurants and easy access to Rio's points of interest.

Unacceptable cleanliness standards. Avoid at all costs. Furniture, bedsheets, doors, handles etc. The employees and the management don't care, either. The location is nice, but nothing can excuse dirty rooms.

The staff is really helpful and super friendly especially the restaurant staff - Philipe, Andre, Jhonatan and everybody else went the extra mile to help us as we struggled with the language here. Andre at reception was also very helpful but he was there only for 3 days during our stay (8days). But the lady at the reception - Talitha (who speaks English!) left a lot to be desired. Everything you ask her is a straight no in a very cold tone. In her words, "the hotel does not provide courtesy water, we don't give courtesy milk in the rooms (for tea)". Not to boast but - Lady, asking if the hotel provides complimentary water is just a question that needs to be answered, that's it. If I can afford to stay there for 8 nights, I can buy water and milk and other things, no need to be obnoxious!! The strangers who didn't even speak English have been more helpful in Brazil than the person working in the service industry! Anyway, the hotel is nice, everything else is good and it's located right on the Botafogo beach (not a swimming beach). We took an Uber to Copacabana beach, took us less than 5 minutes to get there. Beautiful country, lovely people!👌 Review posted during our stay, checking out tomorrow.

The location of this hotel is ideal for business in and around Rio de Janeiro. Situated across from Botafogo Bay and Sugar Loaf Mountain. The problem I found was crossing the highway to get to the beach. There is no access close to the hotel. You can cross at the cross walk but then you have to walk a great distance to the under path to cross the highway. As for the hotel, I stayed 5 nights and I was very disappointed by the view from my room. It was the side of the hotel looking down upon old derelict roof tops and garbage below. I asked to change rooms. If it was one night I wouldn’t care so much but 5 nights. I wanted a room facing the front of the hotel and Sugar Loaf. I was told it would be an extra cost so I asked how much and I said okay. Then I was informed there were no rooms available. Then the gentlemen came up to show me other rooms. I finally selected a room on the other side of the hotel facing roofs of other buildings which were not as bad. This hotel is sandwiched between two buildings so you must ask for a room in the front of the building. My room was nice and clean. Breakfast had a nice selection of hot and cold items. The view from the restaurant was also nice as it faced the front of the hotel and Botafogo Bay. The bar was circular in the middle of the lobby area. It was nice with a large screen TV, but there was never any one there. I sat for 15 minutes and no bartender. I went to the front desk and they called for a bartender. Another 5 minutes passed and then a manager walked by and the receptionist told her so she went upstairs to get someone from the restaurant. Not very good service. After 5 days I must say that I received a better hello each day from security people than the people at the reception desk. A little disappointed.

We spent two wonderful nights at Novotel Botafogo! The location was perfect, between the center and Copacabana. We enjoyed particularly the view from our room to the Sugarloaf Mountain. We highly recommend this place for your vacations in Rio de Janeiro.
