This place is at the main entrance for the Pavão-Pavãozinho hill. The day we were there, there was policemen heavily armed with rifles and an armored car. The facilities are old and lacking maintenance, at some places you can feel a moldy smell! The staff is friendly. Breakfast is fair. Choose this place only as a last resort.

The worse hotel I never saw. Not well maintained. No internet avaible. It was announced they have it. We ask to fix it to access from our room. At first they lie saying they will fix it. Later they said the throuble was on our gadgets. I do not recommend this hotel to anybody.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.)... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
