Recently visited Salvador for just one night due to travelling to Morro De SP. The hotel itself was beautiful, lovely little touches here n there to make the stay that little bit more special. The staff were fantastic and helped us to arrange all we needed, they spent lots of time one-to-one and made us feel valued. Breakfast was top... More

As said before: great location, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast (the lime & ginger juice was probably the best juice we have had ever) and very nicely decorated, like a boutique hotel. The snooker room is an extra plus. We would without doubt stay there again.

Friendly enough staff, clean rooms with very large beds. Breakfast buffet was fine. Be aware the cheaper rooms are at the very top of the hotel and the stairways to reach them would not be considered up to code in the U.S. or Europe. We were able to upgrade our room (at reception) for 20 reals and obtained a very... More

We had a problem with booking.com. Basically they allowed us to "book" a room through their system for a specific date but the manager had already told them that he was going to close the hotel during those days to do some painting works. When we arrived the hotel was closed but the manager negotiated for us a very good... More

We spent a few days in this hotel and the experience was excellent. Great staff always trying to help, very good breakfast, nice rooms with comfortable beds. Location was excellent also just in front of main Praça da Se

Let me just start by saying, if it weren't for the unfriendly owner I would have given this hotel 5 stars. The place is absolutely beautiful, the decorations are tasteful, the room was large, clean, and comfortable. The location is perfect- very close (5 min walk) to the Pelourinho but not right in the middle of the chaos and noise.... More

This comfortable hotel is so well-located, right on the Praca da Se, and close to everything you'll want to see in the Pelourinho district. It feels very secure, the youthful staff is very friendly and happy to be there, meeting visitors. The place is well-designed inside, with interesting nooks and crannies, leading to your room. Lovely paint colors, lots of... More

What a wonderful hotel. The staff were as helpful as they could possibly be and they spoke English very well. Although I speak Spanish, Portuguese is a whole other ball game and I could communicate very well with them using either Spanish or English. They knew most things about the area and very more than happy to give you detailed... More

A perfect choice in the middle of the historical pelourinho. This is really good value for your money. Clean, spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, friendly and helpful staff, as well as great food and nice common areas. The wifi works perfectly in all the rooms and the area seems safe and quiet at night. We stayed here twice in the... More
