Profile: Botafogo

Profile: Botafogo

Upper-middle-class neighborhood Botafogo, located on Rio’s southern coastline, offers breathtaking views from any number of locales, but none beat the Morro da Urca peak, where you’ll snap panoramic pics of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, and downtown Rio de Janeiro.

Photographers and history buffs will want to wander through Sao Joao Batista cemetery for the sculptures, tombs, and a monument for Carmen Miranda, the singer, dancer, and actress who became famous in Brazil in the 1920s.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Brilliant location

    This hotel is excellently situated to view Rio; within walking distance of Pão de Açúcar, and walking distance of Ipanema and Copacabana

  • 8.0.Very good

    I really liked this hotel. I come to Brazil for work and what’s most important for me isn’t some luxury place on the water, it’s cleanliness, ac, and the ability to walk to work and restaurants. The rooms a very practical and purposeful, bed 2 pillows, just a sheet for cover, great tv setup with inputs in flush cabinet, easy controls, safe, refrigerator, closet and very basic bath amenities. You have to understand what you are paying for and getting. It’s a budget hotel that is clean, well serviced, has a bar, some entertainment and is freshly renovated. For these reasons and that it’s close to the main road connection anywhere you want to go while also walkable all over Botafogo, it attracts a lot of business clientele. In fact on my visit, they were the majority (could be the hours I was up too) I will definitely stay here on my next visit

    Great location, value; not for a first-timer

    Great location -- even if Botofogo is not Rio's hottest spot. This is not a tourist hotel. The rooms are small, but not cramped. The views are not fabulous, but not dismal either. For the price, the cleanliness and safety of the facility and the friendliness of the staff, it is a great value. And the breakfast is as expected.

    For the money, this hotel gets a pass from me. It looks nice inside, is in a good location, and most of the staff speak serviceable English. The room was very small and overall, the hotel doesn't offer outstanding value, but acceptable value.

    Great hotel in a good area

    Excellent Ibis hotel, usually no frills hotel chain, this one is very good. Clean and spacious rooms and excellent amenities including a 24 hour cafe. The welcome was friendly and Eduarde gave me excellent tips for the local area. Although not in the beach area there is.much to do in Botafogo with many good restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Really enjoyed my stay. Recommended
