    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.

    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.

    Nice hotel in good location, walking distance to both cococabana and ipanema beach

    The hotel is right between Ipanema and Copacabana beach and 50m from the beach with a pedestrian street straight to the beach. This beach spot is the popular surfer spot. This area is the best. The hotel is new, modern and super clean. We stayed 4 nights and was more than happy. The breakfast is a big buffet that they change every day. The aircon. worked very good and quiet. The pool on the roof has a wonderful view over the beach and sea. There is a square 3 streets or 5 minutes walk from the hotel with a supermarket and many restaurant to choose from. In front of the hotel you will find plenty of taxi's. Use them for your sightseeing. It is approx. 30real per direction per trip. There is a bike rental shop 50m from the hotel. It is best to see the beach by bike. English is always a problem in Brazil, but they were above average. Highly recommended.

    Okay but wouldn't stay there again.
    The room was 'standard' and I thought the price was a bit on the high side for it. The pool is on top of the hotel which was nice but it was small and really more like an oversized hot tub. It's new and modern. Not the best of fixtures, the bathroom door wouldn't stay closed all the way: it backed open each time I closed it so I had to put a trash can behind it to keep if from sliding open. Great location relative to the beaches. The breakfast was very good. The biggest disappointment was at the end. When I asked my friend to check the bill at check out, they told her they didn't have the credit card info to charge. I left the day before and was texting back and forth on a plane between Houston and SF. I paid for a four night stay, then had to pay separate for a 5th night. In the morning they didn't seem to have the card info. I had signed a receipt for payment and it royally pissed me off that they held my friend until I could get them my credit card info again.
