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.

We have included all charges provided to us by this hotel. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the room you book.

Novotel Rio Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro
The hotel seemed very clean and stylish! The bathroom was very nice! Wish we had more time to enjoy the rooftop pool. The workout room is only 3 treadmills and 2 bikes and could be improved. The staff were very friendly and spoke a decent amount of English. Overall great place to stay!

Great hotel-some A/C issues
Really enjoy this porperty. Great breakfast and location-1 block of the beach at Leme. Had issues with the Air Conditioning though-and this was my only issue. They moved me to a different room, and the A/C in that room also didn't work.

When I had breakfast at the restaurant (buffet style) they didn't have enough food. Some items were missing.

Comfortable and convenient
It was an overall pleasant stay. If you have issues with noise, street noise can be an issue and people talking in the hallways is loud.
