Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

The property has connecting/adjoining rooms, which are subject to availability and can be requested by contacting the property using the number on the booking confirmation.

Hotel is good.. surroundings not so good. Rough downtown area
Elizabeth, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good hotel, just not good on the weekend
I liked this hotel a lot. It was one of four difference ones that I stayed at during my recent trips. However, scheduling got messed up and I ended up at this place beginning on a Saturday for what was supposed to be four nights. I knew centro shut down on the weekends, especially Sundays, but I didn't realize how bad it would be. Nothing was open that Sunday except one lonely Mcdonalds near the hotel. Regarding the hotel, the room was large and nice. Comfortable bed and good shower. All of the elevators worked very well. The weather was bad so I didn't get to go to the pool area. The morning breakfast was above average I would say. In the end though, the isolation in centro of that first weekend got to me, so I booked another hotel in Copacabana beginning what was suppose to be my 3rd day at this hotel. Yes, I ate the last two days I had already paid for with this hotel. I just wanted out of the area. Would I stay here again? Yes, but only for a couple of days and only during the week.

Overpriced for the quality offered
Building is old and the room could be better. In room fridge was very old and bed was not the best for the price of the hotel.
