Arena Ipanema Hotel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s small print


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.

Arena Ipanema Hotel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Poor customer service. Unable to do early check in despite room being available. Wanted to charge additional night for only a couple of hours extra use. Also unable to change cash at reception. Apparently they don't have any cash at reception. Also as everyone says in reviews the walls between rooms are paper thin and you can hear any noise through them.

Beware of LUCK local tour company
We enjoyed the hotel's service, amenities, and free breakfast. However, we did not appreciate the service provided by the LUCK local tour company agent at our hotel. We bought 3 different excursions, which we thought were decent prices. Once we arrived at the pickup area, the same company was selling for a cheaper price for the same excursions for people who wanted to purchase the package on the spot.

Good location, friendly and helpful staff. Bed and pillows were not comfortable at all. Very firm. Other than that it was good.

Pleased traveler
I had a really good time here. A friend needed wifi when I was not there, and they made sure such was provided. The care they take at this hotel was quite noticed. Facilities were on point
