The fine print

According to the Brazilian Federal Law 8.069/1990, minors under 18 years of age cannot check into hotels unless they are accompanied by their parents or a designated adult. If a minor is accompanied by an adult other than his parents, it is necessary to present a written authorization for the minor to check into the hotel. Such authorization must be notarized and signed by both parents, and presented along with notarized copies of their IDs.

If both or one of the parents are absent and are not staying with the minor, it is necessary to submit authorization for lodging done in person and signed by both parents or by the parent who is absent. This document must be notarized at the time of check-in.

If the person who is accompanied by a minor does not have the authorization for lodging, he or she should go to the Juvenile Court. Please contact the hotel for more information.
