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.

Great hotel for the price. Very well located close to the beach and the Riosul Mall
Eddie, us1 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
The stay was good, however, I did not like the fact that when we booked the property on the Expedia site we were told we had to pay £455 for our 9 nights when checking in. However on the day, we were asked to pay £516 pounds which was more expensive than the actual booking itself and when converting the amount it was nearly twice what we had to pay in the Brazilian currency.

The staff went above and beyond to help, and the towel loans were great

Good 6.0
The nicest part of the hotel was the rooftop pool but the advertised food and bar services were closed. The staff were very accommodating about bringing food and drinks to the pool. The misleading description of the hotel location fails to mention the hotel is located next to a traffic tunnel. Ultimately it was difficult to walk around the neighborhood or find a local restaurant. Best thing to do, take taxis. I noticed mention of "VIP" benefits in this review -- what VIP benefits?

Hotel room are big, the beds somewhat comfortable I think this hotel is a 3 star, cleaning are not good, the hotel is old needs air conditioning in the elevators and hallways and more for the heats of Rio. The vicinity to the hotel is not all good much dirt in the streets.They are very attentive and breakfast is varied. About 5 or 6 blocks from the sea. If you want to save money and walk the streets of Copacabana, I recommend it. The security on the streets is good, (now) there was a lot of police activity. We did not have any problem.
