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.

Novotel RJ Santos Dumont, Rio de Janeiro
Hotel near airport.
Great location near the airport. Excellent breakfast. Dinner was good but pricey.
Connie, us1 night trip
Novotel RJ Santos Dumont, Rio de Janeiro
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.

Close to Santos Dumont Airport
Chose this hotel for the location near SDU airport because we arrived back in Rio from Iguazu Falls late at night and we were leaving early the next morning. The hotel staff went out of their way to assist us. Breakfast was good. The hotel has a bus stop very nearby which seemed to have buses going all over Rio. For anyone traveling on a budget, and is not bothered by people sleeping on the street very nearby it would be OK, but you can find nice hotels in Copacabana on the beach for not much more.
