Hotel Astoria Palace
Ranked #104 of 286 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Viajé a mediados de Junio de 2013, con mi esposa e hijo de año y medio. Por los reviews previos temía por lo que me iba a encontrar. Estuve dudando si ir al Windsor Martinique o aquí y finalmente por un tema de vista elegí el Astoria.
Está ubicado frente a la Playa de Copacabana, es muy seguro y hay policía por todas partes.
El personal fue muy educado y amable y colaboró durante toda la estadía. No sólo me hicieron reservaciones de paseos sino que mi hijo tuvo fiebre y me consiguieron un termómetro en medio de la madrugada.
La cáma era cómoda y amplia y dormimos en ella los tres a pesar de que me habían dado una cuna para mi niño. Tenía una mesa y unas sillas y un escritorio. La tv era lcd o led. Tenía aire acondicionado que funcionaba. También secador. Un ropero muy amplio.
La habitación podía no ser la más moderna o impecable o con el gusto con el que yo la decoraría pero estaba más que aceptable. Lo que se ve en las fotos es exactamente lo que es.
Tenía las ventanas un poco sucias, alguna mancha en el techo, se escuchaba ruido de los corredores y de las duchas de cuartos contiguos pero nada que fuera molesto. Tal vez en verano es más complejo, ahora definitivamente no lo era. Tenía WIFI gratis en el lobby y desayunador. Un área con computadoras a 30 centavos el minuto y wifi al mismo precio en las habitaciones. No era muy rápido pero funcionaba.
El desayuno era muy bueno y variado. El personal atento y siempre listo para cambiar platos y vasos u ofrecer una sillita para mi hijo.
La vista desde el solarium donde está la piscina es espectacular. La piscina doble es pequeña pero por la época no había casi gente. Había mesas y reposeras.
Al lado está el gimnasio sobre todo con cintas y bicicletas. Como para hacer ejercicio aeróbico.
También estaba el sauna con su respectivas duchas y vestuarios femeninos y masculinos.
El cable era muy completo y al irnos nos acompañaron y llevaron el equipaje al taxi muy diligentes.
En conclusión, si bien para mí fue un hotel caro, no lo era en relación a los otros que había en Río. Valió la pena y lo recomendaría. La vista y ubicación fueron espectaculares.


I travelled mid June 2013 with my wife and my one and a half years old son.
Because of previous reviews I was afraid of what I was going to find here. I doubted between staying at Windosr Martinique or here and because of the view I chose the Astoria.
It is located right in front of the Copacabana Beach. Its safe, there are policemen and tourists everywhere.
Hotel staff was very polite and helpful, and they where very collaborative during our stay.
Not only they made reservations for us but my son had fever and they got me a thermometer in the middle of the night.
Bed was comfortable, big and even though they had given me a crib the three of us slept there.
Room had a table and chairs, and a desk. Tv was lcd or led. Cable had many channels. They had air conditioning which worked, hair dryer and a big wide closet.
Maybe the room wasn´t the most trendy, modern o decorated according to my kind of taste, but it was more than acceptable. What you see in their pictures is what it is.
Windows could be a little bit dirty because of the salt of the sea, some spots on the ceiling, you heard some nosies from the corridor or shower from the neighbour rooms. But none of that was upsetting or really relevant. Maybe in summer is more annoying because maybe it´s packed. But not now.
They had free WIFI in the lobby and breakfast room, an area with 30c (Reales) the minute and the same price in the room. Wasn´t very fast but worked.
Breakfast was good, with a lot of different options. Staff was always ready to swap dirty plates or glasses or to offer a chair to my son.
View from the deck is spectacular. There you will find a double little pool, which was clean and clear. There where tables and deck chairs.
A few steps from there you can find the gym, with bikes and treadmills. There is also a sauna.

In conclusion, even though it wasn´t a cheap hotel but it wasn´t expensive compared to the ridiculous prices for other hotels in Rio. It was worth my money I would recommend it. Just the view and location pay it off.

Room Tip: Pedir piso alto, con vista al mar, para no fumadores. Ask for high floor, ocean view, non smoker...

One of the best view of Copacabana Beach! From the top floor by the pool you can see the Corcovado and Cristo Redentor! Bedroons are bit small but confortable! Very nice Breaky, many options for food! Only problem is the front desc! No much help or kidness! If you need help you have to push hard! I recommend this hotel!

the hotel staff - amaizing

the only thing with the internet you have to be at the lobby otherwise they charge you.
but I have to say I rather stay at the Ipanema side than Copacabana side ( I dont know its my personal opinion)

Room Tip: Try Ipanema side, its only 10 mins by taxi

My 2 girl friends and I stayed there for 2 weeks in March of 2013. The pool is too small looks like a big hot tub they only have 3 lounge chairs and I think 4 sets of patio seating. Once we saw that when we arrived we decided to spend most of our days across the street on Copacabana beach. The rooms are clean, but a bit small, our window didn’t have a view; just the apartment building across from us. There was an old lady there eating almost every time we tried to open the window it was a bit weird so we had it shut the whole time were there. The bathrooms would get very foggy after every shower so I opened the bathroom window and had it like that throughout the duration of our stay. Which I think faced the hotels kitchen because every time we entered our room it would smell of either bacon, pastries, cakes, eggs, sausages (well it would pretty much smell like tomorrows breakfast). My friends and I would even joke before we entered our room of what it would smell like. The staff barely spoke English the lady at the breakfast door didn’t know room numbers in English and didn’t seem to care to learn(but the hospitality industry there is not the greatest like in other parts of the world). So we had to say our room numbers in Portuguese every morning when we went down for breakfast.

Copacabana/Ave. Atlântica is great when the sun is up; but as soon as it sets ‘parents leave your children in their rooms’. There are police cars on every major intersections yet there are prostitutes everywhere. We actually saw a woman try to rob 2 different men in front of our hotel in a 15-20 minute span. Every time we went out for a walk at night whether it being for dinner or to just enjoy the fresh air people would think we were “open for business” . We still can’t believe for an area like that, full of tourists people couldn’t believe 3 single young girls can travel together. If they didn’t think we were prostitutes they thought we were lesbians (very funny) we just couldn’t win in Rio.

Anyway back to Astoria Palace please note there is also another Astoria hotel called Astoria Copacabana about a block west ‘I think’ if you take a taxi make sure you say Astoria Palace near Copacabana Palace. There is also free Wi Fi on the hotel lobby so people tend to hang out there a lot especially bored teenagers with nothing to do because their parents decided to go on date night. The sad thing about this is, as soon as it hits 10pm old perverted men staying there would bring prostitutes to their rooms and you clearly knew it because they would stand there and change money to give it to them. The girls these men would bring looked the same age as the bored teenagers sitting at the lobby.(eww I know) This was pretty much the sad part of our hotel stay; but overall I think we could have gotten a better deal elsewhere we just paid for the location and nothing more. If I was to do it again I probably would put more money in and stayed at the Copacabana Palace (We went there for dinner and the service was superb!)

This hotel is in a great position if you choose Copacabana Beach, our room had a direct view of the beach, if I returned I would choose another beach, less busy. The indifferent reception staff badly let this hotel down, another big problem was the fact that all the clocks were on the incorrect time!!! No one informed us of this. I thought the room and bathroom were average size, beds comfortable. Very slow wifi connection, breakfast very ordinary but adequate.

I am relaxing in our room at the moment, before heading out for dinner, just a couple of buildings along from the famous and beautiful Copacabana hotel, the Astoria Palace is in a brilliant location . The grand hotel name gives the wrong expectation to this hotel, a narrow building with compact reception and seating area. The staff were efficient and as helpful as possible, with limited English. 3 lifts, but only 2 working, it can take a long time to get to and from the room. We were in 1306 , a triple room 3 good sized single beds, average size room in my opinion, good storage, safety deposit box with key code- free, big walk in shower ( no bath) 1 bathrobe per person, a nice touch
There is a good size fridge to put your own water and duty free as well as being well stocked by the hotel. Tv is a bit old, very few programs in English.
None of the rooms have balconies ,so at 60 us dollers extra per nite for an upgrade to a sea view I wouldnt bother. There are 2 plunge pools on the roof, chairs and tables and 4 sunloungers
Fantastic views!!! Of the beach etc. there is a bar up there too.
Breakfast is served 6-10 and is really good.
Cerial, toast, cooked breakfast, hams and cheeses, fresh fruit all preped for eating. Pastries, cakes ,yogurts, bread rolls, juices, tea and coffee. All self sevice and return as many times as you like to the buffet. Tip, there are packs of biccies on the top, handy to take away for a snack later.
There is a transport company working from the lobby, only a little more expensive than taxis. I booked them to collect us from the airport, they charged 110Real

Tip taxi drivers speak little English so have your key card holder with you when out and about to show the driver the address back to Astoria palace.
There are several nice restaurants within a few hundred yards. Being right on the front of Copacabana, we felt safe, and enjoyed the passing musicians, street vendors and the lights and buzz of the place. The hotel is a bit dated in places, but comfy beds, cosy feel, excellant breakfast, and fab location we are happy and would probably stay again.
