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.

Only registered guests are allowed in the guestrooms.

Clean room and super hosts.
I had a comfortable stay at the room. The room is clean and the ensuite bathroom makes it even more convenient. Although it is a shared 4-person dormitory, the room is kept impeccably clean it provides an extremely comfy place. I liked to hang around and do my work or just sit around on a high stool at the aisle leading to the kitchen. It acts like a void where wind comes through. On my first and second there there, sitting out at the aisle was cold, I had to put on a jacket. Filippi and Jessica, the owners of Rio Earth are incredibly knowledgeable about getting about in Rio. They even know the bus numbers to take to get to most touristic destinations. I was able to get from one place to another with their guidance. They are so friendly, they even joined the tenants for a meal once in while because they go out for meals too. So, they invite us to go along. I found that so kind. Also, the Gloria neighborhood which this property is stituated is close to Lapa, the city centre, and is easily accessible by metro and public transport. Even walking to most places is easy. Going to Botafogo is only about 40 minutes if you are keen to walk. Going to the domestic airport, Santo Dumont, is just a 20-minute walk along the most beatiful marina. Just catch a bus or metro to Sugarloaf mountain and to Christ monument, all withing 5-min walk. Restaurants, cafes and mini mart are just around the corner. I like to come back to stay when I do get back to Rio one day.

A cosy choice in the heart of historic Rio :)
Superbly located, 5 minutes walk-away from the metro, 7 minutes from Lapa's main bohemian district, and 10 minutes from the beach! Quaint, secure and homely, this guest house forms the perfect holiday retreat.
