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 name on the credit card used at check-in to pay for incidentals must be the primary name on the guestroom reservation.

Optional extras

Rollaway beds are available for an additional charge

Friendliness goes a long way
It's amazing how a friendly staff can really affect your overall feelings about a hotel. The guy at the front desk was great and the hotel itself is very good. Cool artwork in the lobby. I would recommend staying here. Great value.

Nice, clean and conveniently located hotel
Nice clean little hotel just over 1km from Copacabana beach. Shops, bars, restaurants are within 20-minute walks from the hotel. There is a metro station very nearby. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The furniture in the corridors and in my room was nice old solid wood, which makes this hotel standout from others in its price range. The only negative point is that the free wifi is spotty and slow. I would definitely come back!

Cheap, nice and safe but damp room
Stayed here for a total of 2 nights on 2 separate reservations. The hotel is located in a nice, quiet and very safe neighborhood. A bit of a walking distance to Copacabana. Our room looking at the alley was worn and damp. Thanks to my allergy, I am an iodine test for dust mites and yupp, the room had lots. The breakfast was minimal but good. The receptionists speak good English. Especially the night manager is very friendly. The toilet in the reception did not have soap, a big minus. Overall just another overpriced Rio hotel, which has a rather higher value for money compared to others I stayed in.

Great staff and good location
We stayed for 3 days. Great staff, good breakfast with freshly cooked eggs, good old clean and quiet hotel that needs few minor fixes. Great location with nearby supermarket and farmer's market on Wednesdays. Also have police watch for extra park and neighborhood security. Many shops and restaurants on the way to Copacabana beach which was 10 blocks away. Good tours info.

Quaint little hotel in safe and quiet area
I was here during the carnaval, so the price for the room was sky high (triple). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast, provided. Fairly close to the beach and in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood. Room small but OK, clean and comfortable. Good WiFi. Regular price pretty high for what you get, but probably in line with Copacabana.
