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.

    fourth time i have stayed here & standards have dropped slightly as i think the hotel tends to cater for very short stay customers mainly from within the airline industry

    Good 6.0
    Lovely view, but front desk/check-in badly trained
    When I arrived for check-in, two people were currently being served in front of me. Both clearly had some sort of issue as I had to wait for over 20 minutes before I could check in. Fair enough, these things happen, but the front desk team did not greet me, nor apologise for the wait. A long queue subsequently formed behind me and nobody else was acknowledged. To make matters worse, there were two other members of reception staff who were walking in and out of the back office laughing and joking, as a long queue of guests grew more and more exasperated. When I was finally served, there was no greeting nor apology. The lady just took my passport and and barely looked at me. I don't blame the staff themselves, as its clear they have received insufficient training. It's a simple fix for the management, ensure that their staff know to greet people and apologise for long delays. A friendly smile and a hello goes a long way in the hospitality industry. When I went to checkout the next morning, the exact same situation with the queue and disgruntled guests was taking place. Outside of the service, the rooms are fine and the view from the restaurant is spectacular. If the hotel didn't have its airport location and view, I would not recommend it.

    Not business center.
    The hotel is conveniently located next to the SDU AIRPORT and the mall. I booked this hotel in need of a business center. Upon check in, I was shocked to find out there is NOT a business center, even though is listed as one of their amenities on site. The shower only had cold water, I waited a long time for the hot water to came up to my room but nothing. I had no choice to take a cold water and ending up catching a cold. Not happy.
