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.

We have included all charges provided to us by this hotel. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the room you book.

The hotel is perfectly located directly on the beach in the middle of Ipanema. But to be honest, you don't have to be directly on the beach to enjoy Ipanema. The rooftop bar / pool area is great - you have an amazing panoramic view of Ipanema - excellent for the sunset. But it is small - not really somewhere you would spend the afternoon. The buffet breakfast is good - nothing fancy, but adequate to start your day. The bed was a little uncomfortable - the king bed is just 2 mattresses tied together, which you can feel! The staff were very polite and helpful. The most annoying thing of the hotel is the elevators - they are painfully slow! So ask for a low level room so you can use the stairs!

Good hotel convenient to everything!
Great of hotel in a very good location. Situated right across the street from the beach. We reserved an ocean view room so we could hear the sounds of the ocean at night. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Great breakfast buffet offered for free. The pool is not really a pool - it’s the size of a large hot tub. But the sunset view from the roof is amazing. Very friendly staff. I would stay here again.

Good location - Rio
Its a good location and hotel gives you goos access to the beach. Down sides to the hotel, the lift was broken so it was a long wait to get to yuor room. They need new toasters as the existing ones don't hold down. I will definitely stay in the hotel and the staff at reception were very helpful.

Big downside was that only one elevator was working and there were longer waits than I would have liked. Great location and staff, very friendly and helpful. Did a nice job of taking care of me after I checked out. Would stay there again.
