Parents or a legal guardian travelling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is travelling with the child, he/she must present – in addition to the child's birth certificate and identity card with photo – a letter authorising the trip signed by the other parent with a notarised certification of signature. If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorisation, a judicial authorisation is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before travelling for more information.

Pet-friendly rooms can be requested by contacting the property on the number on the booking confirmation.

Fabulous 8.8 From 446 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Central gem for all activities
I had a lovely stay, the rooms were spacious and clean. I had room 1101 and could see the Christ de Redeemer and sugar loafs! The breakfast was ok but needs more variety like pancakes or some more veg eg spinach to go with breakfast. Overall food was good. Location good 10min walk to Botafogo station and flamingo was closer. Felt safe in the area at night. Easy to get to from lapa, central and Copacabana so actually I think it’s the best location for uber cost wise.

It's nice,
The hotel is quite nice and has a good gym and a great rooftop bar. The standard rooms are a bit lacking though, and the area isn't the greatest for a holiday, as it's quite far to a swimmable beach. Rooftop pool is also quite tiny. This hotel is best for shorter stays, or if you're planning on partying in Botafogo.

Truly the best hotel
What an amazing hotel. From the moment we arrived to check in we received with the best customer service. Every single girl on reception always greets you with a smile and is unbelievably helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The bar staff on the roof bar are always fun and make the best cocktails. The hotel is funky, cool and very well designed. The rooms are also cool and chic, a good size with great beds and quality linen and the best pillows ever. The bathrooms have amazing showers and plenty of space for tolietries. The Breakfast is of a very high quality with plenty of hot and cold options and fresh squeezed juices and great coffee and tea selection we could not fault it. We travelled Peru, Chile, Argentina and now Brazil and this is by far the best hotel we stayed in. We loved it so much were coming back for the rest of our stay in Rio after a few days in Florianopolis. We truly didn't want to leave. We also had a amazing view of the bay and of Jesus the redeemer it was spectacular though of course these rooms with the view cost a little extra though it makes your stay even more memorable. My compliments to the managers you run a beautiful hotel in a great location made even better by the amazing staff you have working for you, especially every single member of your team on reception. We look forward to coming back on the 16th for the last few days of our honeymoon in South America 😁😍

Wacky, fun but still good for business
Even for business this was convenient for Centro and Flamengo and having views over sugar loaf and Christ in the evening was great
