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 property has connecting/adjoining rooms, which are subject to availability and can be requested by contacting the property using the number on the booking confirmation.

Excellent hotel. Highly recommend
Excellent hotel on excellent location. When we arrived, we were greeted with many servers. We were offered sparkling wine and have sit down check in. The room is spacious and beautiful.I paid a little more for Superior room and facing the Copacabana Beach which is very worth it. The security of the hotel is great as there is always someone at the door outside and inside the hotel. The decor is modern and elegant. The picture of the room on the web site looks small but it is bigger. Hotel is near many restaurants and the area is not old. I highly recommend to stay in this hotel and don't bother to stay at Ipaname Beach which the hotels are expensive, small, and not many restaurants close by. We need to walk 15 mins to find places to eat and come back at night at Ipaname. Wish we had stayed at this hotel the whole time. Ask the Reception where to eat Brazilan BBQ which is alos excellent and great value. 89 Sol per person and offer senior discount. We went twice. We feel safe at Copocabana and Ipaname beach. There is policeman and police car at Ipaname beach. There is Taxi fixed rate 130 Rio currency at the Airport before we exit . Half price when you come back with them. We also find taxi across from Arena Ipaname Hotel for 70 Rio currency. Booking airport transfer from the web site is more expensive. We booked Rio Taxi through Whatapps which charges 130 and meet us when we exit the custom which is nice. But it didn't offer a deal for return.
