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.

Perfect location & view. Ants in the room.
The room was large and we had an ocean view. Excellent bed. Clean room apart from ants and bugs. The staff was helpful and reacted fast. The beach is wonderful. The location: the best in Rio. Pool bar area has an amazing view. What we did not like: ants around in all the electricity plugs in the room. And the pool was supposed to be heated but it was not. The front desk person asked me for the credit card CVV security code - nobody should ask you for that number. WiFi was quite slow: around 8 Mb.

Loved this hotel for our trip to Rio!
100% satisfied with everything about this hotel. If we go back to Rio, this is where we will stay. Easy check in and front desk was always helpful if we had questions. We landed at 9am, and were lucky that our room was available. Room was really nice and bed was very comfortable. Great shower with a rain shower head and lots of water pressure. We had a room facing the ocean and our view was amazing. The food at the breakfast buffet was delicious and had so many options. Loved all the fruit! The beach was right across the street and it was easy to grab chairs and towels to take with us. It was a little annoying how often people tried to sell us stuff, but we loved that someone brought us beers and offered other drinks right to our chairs. Beers were only $2 each (if you were paying in USD) pretty much everywhere on the beach and they were always ice cold. Amazing view from the roof top and loved that there was a bar up there. Make sure to peek around the back to see Christ the Redeemer. Location is perfect. Very close to the metro although Uber is incredibly cheap (in USD), quick and reliable. Ipanema is a little quieter than Copacabana and we are really glad we stayed there. Great running/bike path right out front and on Sundays they close half the street. We were so happy with our stay and I hope we have the chance to come back some day!

Perfect location, very nice views of Ipanema beach, safe area. The staff is very friendly and helpful, unfortuantely only the reception desk is fluent in English. Very good breakfast but sometimes replenishment was very slow. Best place is the pool & bar on the roof top. Excellent service and amazing view. Unfortunetely no free coffee in the room and even for the mini bar and Nespresso machine use will be charge 10% service fee (!!!) on top of the listed prices

Sol on Ipanema
As the title says it, Sol Ipanema is directly opposite Ipanema beach with unparalleled views. Conveniently located between Copacabana and Leblon. The area felt extremely safe despite the reputation for being a dangerous city. Sol is at the northern end of Ipanema, about a comfortable 20mins walk to Copacabana. Located 3 doors away from Vinicius de Moraes with fantastic eateries such as the famous Garota de Ipanema. Go early as the queues start to form quite quickly. The hotel lobby itself is quaint and well presented. The staff (notably Debora) are extremely friendly and helpful which is something that you come to expect of Brazillians and their zest for life. The rooms were a pleasant surprise and a good size for a rating of 3 and a half stars by Expedia. Personally, I believe the rating should be higher. The only issue we found was that we were allocated an oceanfront room on the 1st floor and being the main highway, at night, noise was in abundance but we were only there for 3 days and not in the room that often. If we were staying longer, I would have insisted on being allocated a room on a higher level to avoid this. The rooftop bar and pool is idyllic with amazing sunset views towards Leblon. The pool is perhaps best described as a plunge pool and the bar is tiny but does the trick nicely. The barman makes the greatest cocktails. Once again, go early to ensure you get the perfect spot to watch the hustle and bustle of Ipanema beach and those exquisite sunsets.

Utterly disappointed from beginning to end
From the moment I checked on to the moment I left, I was utterly disappointed with this hotel. My compliments to whoever tool the photos, but they are hardly true to real life. Although the rooms are a good size i felt they could have been appointed better. Additionally, although the hotel proudly features their nespresso machines in the pictures of their rooms, they fail to disclose that they charge you about $2 per capsule and no complimentary capsules. The pool is tiny and in my opinion should not qualify as a pool. The pool deck is also tiny with only three deck chairs and cramped with an additional two cafe tables and four chairs.... Wholly inadequate for a hotel of 90 guestrooms. There are also 15 floors and only two elevators with no service elevator... Meaning that in the mornings you can spend up to 10 minutes waiting for an elevator. But most disappointing was the service. The front desk was very unfriendly and unhelpful. I was first given a room with two double double beds. When I complained, the front desk dismissed my complaint saying they "upgraded my room anyway," but I had in fact booked and been confirmed a deluxe ocean view room with a king bed. Then upon checkout when I asked for a late checkout i was told they could not do it because they were fully booked, despite that showed they had 3 of the same rooms still available. I know late.checkout is at discretion of the hotel, but if you don't want to do it don't lie about the reason
