I saw all negatives comments and almost didnt book in this hotel. I decided to give it a chance and it was worth it. The location is great and i didnt have any kind of throuble. The room was clean and the staff were very nice.

The location is very good - 5 minutes to go and you can play football with cariocas at wonderful Copacabana beach. It's no far from the Ipanema and from the merto station as well. I enjoyed the hotels breakfasts - had enough different fruits for example. The service was goog, room was cosy with a view to the ocean. But...

My husband and I stayed at Ducasse in August 2009. I’m brazilian but I live for many years overseas and completely forgot about the danger specially talking about Rio. I paid for everything upfront included the pick up and drop off from and to he hotel/airport. The guy simply did not showed up. The second disappointment is that when we...

When I've arrived they didn't have any reservations, wich I did and payed from my homeland. So I've lived 2 days almost being hounded by the whole staff. The hotel is located at the foot of a favela !! As other traveller told "The state of the rooms is far from great". Terrible noisy 24 hs. a day, so, if...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Ducasse. We live in Brazil, we have stayed in over 25 hotels in Rio. We have never — ever — had any problems or complaints. But the Ducasse left us simply appalled. The night we were there the boiler broke. (Or was already broken, even when we checked in? We'll never know.)...

I made a reservation over the phone and was quoted $55 a night. I gave my card no for half the stay (4 days) and sent the details over to my mom who was flying into Rio ahead of me. When she came in, she was charged $85 a night for the whole stay. They "forgot of my downpayment" and...

We booked this hotel for a budget escape to Rio, during high season (January, summer). We browsed various hotels located in Copacabana, looking basically for a good price (or cost bennefit) and in this aspect the Ducasse Hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel's website had an offer R$189,00 per night, for one double room night including breakfast - which is...

They showed a picture of a swimming pool - yet, all they has was a sauna? Aside from that, an "okay" place; super coffee and nice breakfasts -- located 1/2-block from the slums. Considering the low off-season rate, I suppose it was worth it. Yet, on an overall basis, this was probably the finest vacation I recall, ever! Didn't spend...

We looked at other hotels around our budget and this came out the best. On arrival, we were pleasently surprised. Room small but clean. Breakfast was good and included in price. Location great. Staff helpful and will book tours and transport for you.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

“The in room wifi was said to be out of order, but if you wish to go for this hotel, make sure you check if there is functional wifi. Ask for upper rooms with larger space, but it is facing the street and you expect noise.”
