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.

Hotel near airport.
Great location near the airport. Excellent breakfast. Dinner was good but pricey.

Very good, but an unusual neighboorhood for some
Because of its proximity to Santos Dumont airport, and the ease of getting flights from there and the bus from there to Galeao, as well as the fact that the Metro, the VLT, and the "centro" are a short walk away, I always stay here while in Rio. Off putting is the fact that the neighborhood is deserted during the weekend and the next block up is full of homeless. While the area is safe, some new travelers may feel uncomfortable. Their buffet breakfast is nothing special, but very much worth the price. PS Sometimes the bar next door at the Ibis is more convivial.

Return to Rio for business.
I have stayed here twice before. I keep coming back - is there a better recommendation? Very convenient to SDU airport and downtown Rio. Very good business hotel - not so good for tourism as it is away from the tourist hot spots and downtown is almost completely closed on weekends.

Hand, good quality hotel for SDU airport.
Very handy hotel for an early departure from Santos Dumont airport otherwise the location is not so good. The hotel itself is clean, comfortable, modern and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff make it pleasant place to stay. There were internet problems when I arrived that were not fixed until after I went to bed in the evening. Next morning the internet worked fine and fast - I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that this was an isolated problem and still vote this hotel as very good to excellent. Partial view of SDU runway from some rooms. Likely to become obstructed as as there is a building site between the hotel and the airport but likely to be OK for quite a while as the site appears to be abandoned half built.
