Guest reviews for Hotel Novo Mundo

4 out of 5

Great Experience at Novo Mundo

We had never been to Rio before, and we planned our trip at one of the busiest times of the year, the New Year Celebration (Reveillon). We somehow managed to get a really cheap hotel room at the Hotel Novo Mundo, but were a little concerned about the location, in a district called Flamengo. As it turned out, we were perfectly located for everything we wanted to do, without all the distractions/reported dangers offered by Copacabana and Ipanema. We were within a 10 minute bus ride from the famous beaches and all the famous sights of Rio de Janeiro, in a hotel that is apparently well-maintained and reasonably well-staffed. The all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast was included in our room price, and the room (for 3 people) was big enough, clean enough, and comfortable enough for me to stay there again without hesitation. Most of the people staying in the hotel were foreigners, so the staff must know English pretty well (I used Portuguese to avoid any confusion), and we were able to get taxis to the airport reserved through the front desk. We felt perfectly safe walking around in the neighborhood, and found a number of inexpensive, quaint, and interesting restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The nearest beach is Flamengo, and I would advise against swimming there, as it is on the Bay and not the Atlantic. Overall, our hotel experience was excellent, and I would recommend the Novo Mundo and its surroundings very highly to anyone who is considering an alternative to the busier and more expensive areas of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon.

You should know

  • Upon check-in, parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years old are obligated to present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example). For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, the parent 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. If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People intending to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate prior to traveling for more information.
  • Registered guests are the only ones allowed to be in guestrooms.
