When you stay at Ducasse Hotel, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Leblon Beach and Parque Henrique Lage. Free perks include buffet breakfast daily and WiFi. Also, Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden and Museum of Modern Art are within a short drive.
Not a good value for the costPros: Good staff, decent facilities, and close to the beach but pretty much everything is close to the beach in Copacabana.Cons: The elevators occasionally didn't work and that wasn't that great when staying in a higher floor. Also, the wifi was spotty and for me that's a big deal considering I continue to work and communicate through wifi while abroad. Next to a favela but I guess that's negated by the police unit parked outside 24/7. No swimming pool. The room's safe didn't have a lock.
