For my purpose - to visit the consulate of the PR of China - the Ibis Budget Botaforgo was very good. The consulate is one and half block away (3 min walk). Also the shopping centre and some typical simple but good restaurant are nearby. On the other side, I would not recommend this hotel for first time visitors / tourists in Rio de Janeiro. For example, there is no safe access to the beach; you would have to cross a 6 way highway type road, which runs between the neighbourhood and the beach. The next pedestrian tunnel (not safe) or pedestrian bridge over that road means a detour of at last 1 km of walking!!! The neighbourhood itself seems during the day quite safe but at night the situation becomes less encouraging, though nothing happened during my stay. The hotel room itself is okay for one or two night, but not for a longer stay on a holiday. Check in staff was very friendly and brekfast was also okay. When having business in that region, I can recommend this hotel, but tourist sites are quite far. Said that the Sugar Loaf is nearby, but I would not recommend to go there walking (take a taxi or Uber).

Very well located 1 block from Botafogo Praia Shopping, 2 blocks from Botafogo metro station and 1 block from Botafogo Beach. Modern and clean room but for being an economical hotel, there are no safe, mini fridge or wardrobe. The shower is literally inside of the room rather than inside of the bathroom but it is ok. Breakfast with no hot dishers (sausage, eggs, bacon) but with breads, fruits, ham and cheese fresh and of good quality. Young and friendly staff. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Stay in a room away from the elevator. Staying on a high floor and on the left side of the hotel you will have a view of Corcovado.

Botafogo is a pretty secure location. Hotel is near metro station Botafogo and big shopping mall. Rooms are basic but you should expect this from Ibis Budget. Coffee maker and fridge with drinks and food are in lobby. Staff there is very friendly and helpful. There is a possibility to have breakfastat at an additional cost.

For people who are looking for an affordable hotel, not the cheapest, but with assured quality, ibis hotels are the best. And this one is near good restaurants, subway and Aterro area. To people who need to go near Botafogo area, I strongly recommend.

It is very well placed, one block from a mall and in a nice neighborhood. Easy to take a bus to go Copacabana/Ipanema beaches, Christ and Sugar Loaf. Highly recommended. Staff is very kind and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfy.
