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.

Fabulous 8.6 From 115 reviews

Very good 8.0
Good location, awful check in, friendly staff.
The check in was frustrating - very long and although they knew we had a room booked for 4 nights, they didn't know which room type (even though I showed them my booking confirmation) so we had to wait hours while other arrivals were given a room as they checked in :( We had flown from Europe and had been awake for 20 hours but they cut us no slack. Disappointing. After that things were great. The manager was particularly helpful as was the lady on reception. The breakfast staff worked hard. Room was very clean and tidy. Can highly recommend but don't even THINK of checking in before 2pm.

Good budget hotel cose to all amenities in Rio.
We stayed at this hotel twice, going to Iguacu Falls in between. We were able to leave two suitcases at the hotel. On returning we were given a room with three singles beds. Much bigger than our reserved one. I left a favourable review after our first stay. The second stay confirmed my previous comments. An excellent budget hotel close to all amenities which provides a good breakfast, has friendly helpful staff, a pool and a clean comfortable room.

Good value budget hotel in Catete, Rio de Janeiro
Good value budget hotel in a bustling part of Rio. It is convenient for the Metro and buses to take you to all the tourist hot spots. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. Breakfast good, a wide variety of food and fruit was available. Scrambled eggs cooked on request. We stayed in a standard twin room which was adequate for our needs, air conditioning worked well. There is a swimming pool which was lovely to use after a day's sightseeing. Free wi fi. The street is vibrant and busy in the evening. Area appeared safe, I recommend this hotel.
