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.

Nice hotel and a great location
Rio design hotel is probably one of the better hotels in copacabana, and is situated in a great area for restaurants, bars and of course the beach. The beach is literally 2 minute walk. Customer service was good, and everyone pretty much spoke English at the hotel. I had a good stay and would recommend this hotel for anyone heading to Rio and wanting to stay by the beach. Breakfast was good, not great selection but it was free. Hotel has 24 hr room service, which is always good. Only bad was no pool access as they were doing renovations. Also hotels need to stop advertising having gyms, when they only have a small room with two cardio machines. That’s not a gym! Apart from that, it’s a great location and a good stay. Would say for Brazil standards, it’s def a 4 star.

just ok. nad service
we stayed in this hotel for about a week and other than being in a very good location i will have to say it was quite disappointing. The rooms were ok however they forgot to clean our room twice during our stay which means no towels were changed and since Rio is a beach destination our room was full of sand and used towels. breakfast had nothing to offer to my wife who is vegan, not even as much as a tapioca or a salad and the kitchen staff who knew we would be staying for a week or more didn't even try to accommodate this issue. we spent a month in brazil traveling around and even hotels in the middle of nowhere had vegan options for breakfast but this one in the touristic center of Rio de Janeiro had nothing.

Reception staff were friendly and helpful. We liked the location, and were pleasantly surprised by the room upgrade they gave us. The bed was enormous and very comfortable, and we had double sinks and double showers. The offerings at breakfast were impressive and excellent. Overall, very good value!

Happy Hour Not!
Location is good and room large and comfortable, although the air con blew straight onto the bed. However the desk staff were unsmiling and when we sought assistance after suffering a street robbery they were unhelpful.
