I have a soft spot in my heart for this hotel. No, it is not the "Grand Dame" of Copacabana hotels, but it offers a fantastic beachfront location for a very reasonable price. The staff is very nice, the breakfast buffet is quite good and it is served in a second floor restaurant overlooking Copacabana Beach. The room furnishings are dated (not unsual in a lot of places in Brazil), BUT the bathrooms are modern and clean and there was plenty of hot water. All in all it is an economical place to stay in a locale famous (or infamous) for outrageously overpriced hotels.
