Also known as


    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.

    You can hear everything going on in the halls and the close rooms. The restaurant is amazing for breakfast, but a dead zone for dinner. It is clean and safe.

    Pleased traveler
    I had a really good time here. A friend needed wifi when I was not there, and they made sure such was provided. The care they take at this hotel was quite noticed. Facilities were on point

    Great location for the price - smelly beds
    Rooms are small but modern and adequate. Lobby is nice, location is PERFECT. In Arpoador right between Copacabana and Ipanema. Steps from the beach but no ocean views. Included breakfast is great, large spread of hot food and fresh breads/fruits. Rooftop pool is tiny but the bi-level sitting area and bar are great for watching the sunset or taking in some sun on the lounge chairs. Shower is super powerful but it has a tendency to leak onto the floor. Most negative aspect however is the smell of the sheets and pillows. They smell like sweat. Like a teenage boys bedroom. They are clean but still have the strong scent of sweat. I asked for them to be replaced which they did immediately but they smelled the same. I sprayed them with cologne every night before sleeping.
