Very good service from the staff, but the hotel seems to have reached a point where it needs refurbishment

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Cookiemonster203 TripAdvisor review

The hotel seems a bit tired and at a point where it needs refurbishment. For example, the lifts appear to not be fully working - the doors on one of the lifts did not open on some floors, or only partially opened, and then had to be manually pulled apart. In terms of the area - it is within walking distance of Santos Dumont Airport. It is within walking distance of public transport - the metro and VLT at Cinelandia area 10 minute walk away. It is not the most pleasant area at night, with numerous homeless people loitering - However, in fairness to the hotel, this is not their fault and there is 24 hour security in the hotel. The air conditioning was running in my room on arrival and the curtains had been kept closed to keep the heat out, which is appreciated. Staff at the hotel speak basic English. An issue with the in room safe was resolved through the use of google translate, but even with the language barrier, reception had maintenance in my room in under 10 minutes, which is very good service. There is a good selection for breakfast. There is good, fast wifi. However, it was apparent that my room had been well used and the fridge, for example, would have benefited from a deep clean. The hotel was ok for a short stay, but I would consider other hotels if in Rio de Janeiro again.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your detailed experience of your stay at our hotel. It's great to hear that the staff provided good service and that you found many positives during your stay. Your comments about the need for refurbishment and maintenance are important to us, and I would like to inform you that we have already started work on the building, modernising the flats and corridors. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future and guarantee a more satisfactory experience. Thank you again for your constructive comments.

andytass Business - TripAdvisor review

Smelly room, impossible to open windows, aircon sounds like a 20 year old Lada, bar and restaurant closed by 10pm, avoid at all costs, amongst the worst hotels it has even been my displeasure to endure. Bedsheets dirty, looks like beds were made up by a really disgruntled employee

Hello, Andytass, We appreciate your review. Your feedback is very important so that we can always seek to improve the provision of our services and thus offer memorable experiences to our customers! We are very sorry that we did not provide you with the best experience during your stay. Beatriz Pereira.

Carnival crowds

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

IreneEng Couples - TripAdvisor review

T his is a 2-star hotel. It looks nicer online and in photos. We booked this in early January and by then, not many hotels were available, due to the carnival, which runs Feb 9th to 14th. It's in 'central' but the surrounding area is desolated, except every morning, the dressed up or down carnival crowds gathers by the hotel. The room is small but functional. The bed and pillow are ok. Shower water pressure is pretty strong, which is good. Same dirty plates are often left in the hall way for extended time. It provides a mini refrigerator and a safe. - condensation fm the air conditioner drips, and they never provide an extra towel to absorb it - slow elevators - room isn't cleaned every day - no biggie The bar in the lobby is ok. I didn't visit restaurant on the first floor. We used Uber or taxi to get around.

IreneEng, We appreciate your review. Your feedback is very important so that we can always seek to improve the provision of our services and thus offer memorable experiences to our customers! Kind regards, Beatriz Pereira.

Problems with staff and elevator

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Leo Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff spends a lot of time chit-chatting, while clients are waiting to be attended. The lifts are broken, dangerous (they sink with more weight) and also used by staff. I needed to use the stairs all of the time. On the good note, the air conditioner works very well.

Dear Mr Leonardo, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations, please allow us to extend our sincerest apologies. At Ibis Santos Dumont we seek to provide a quality service to each of our customers, which is why your comments are very important to us.
