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.

The property has connecting/adjoining rooms, which are subject to availability and can be requested by contacting the property using the number on the booking confirmation.

Great deal in Ipanema
This was a great experience from start to finish. The hotel has a nice clean modern design, the staff is friendly and professional, the included breakfast has a huge selection, the wifi is fast, the bed was big and comfortable, the shower was wonderful. The location is hard to beat and is about to get even better when the new metro line opens in a few weeks with a stop right next to the hotel. I'll definitely stay here again.

Second Great Visit
This is a nice, small-ish hotel in Ipanema two blocks from the beach. The front desk staff is great -- super friendly and they speak English well. They try really hard to accommodate you, e.g., they let me check into my room very early after an overnight flight. Also, Devassa (the connected restaurant) is a solid place for a steak and a beer, as well as breakfast. FYI: I stayed here once before in 2013 and gave this place a good review then as well.

First time in Brazil-great experience
The staff here were fluent English Speakers and very helpful. They recommended and called on our behalf a great professional English-speaking chaperone to drive us to the Christ the Redeemer statue and back to the hotel. The complimentary breakfast was top-notch. Very delicious. The Wifi worked but was slower than we were used to in USA and the room was small. The shower was spacious and would have been a good size for two. If we were staying long enough to go to the beach, we would have enjoyed the complimentary beach towels and umbrellas which were offered, but we had plenty of fun exploring the many nearby shops and restaurants in walking distance.
