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.

Yoo2 Rio de Janeiro by Intercity, Rio de Janeiro
We loved Yoo2. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. After staying 5 days we were sad to leave and it felt like saying goodbye to dear friends. Breakfasts were beautifully displayed, fresh fruit, good coffee, a nice selection of breads and interesting Brazilian side dishes. And the rooftop bar has gorgeous views, plus you must order at least once the national cocktail made with lime, brown sugar and cachaça (tastes a little like rum maybe?). Soooo good. Caipirinha Don't ask me how to pronounce it but so yummy. And speaking of Portuguese language - no worries if you don't speak it, the front desk always has a few English speaking staff to help you. Lucianne, Deborah, Everton, and Felipe Bom Dia! You are the BEST! Missing you, Holly & Tony

Unfortunately first and last impressions weigh heavily and Yoo2 has Everton at the front desk making those impressions conveying a laziness, ignorance, and rudeness seldom seen in that position. The hotel also heavily advertises their rooftop bar and pool with spectacular views but we found the roof always booked for private functions and the pool’s extremely small and limited seating in relation to the number of guests a bait and switch amenity.

My favourite hotel in Rio
I love this hotel which is only a couple of years old. I’ve stayed here several times now since the 2016 Olympic Ganes and it’s always a pleasure. The location is away from the tourist/more famous areas of Copacabana and Impanema, but it does have a beach nearby and spectacular views. The whole design of the hotel is so chic and stylish. Rooftop pool and bar is a bonus. I don’t think you can go wrong with this contemporary choice whether it’s business or leisure. My favourite hotel in Rio for price and value.
