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

Bahiacafe Hotel strikes a good balance between comfort, location, service and value. The proprietors seem to have done a good job packaging a holistic experience into an offering that's priced just right. For starters it is conveniently located in the heart of Pelourinho, just off Terrerio de Jesus, which means you're only moments from some of the most important sites... More

We were booked into this hotel for three nights on our tour around Brazil. We arrived in the middle of the night to be shown to our room by the night porter. The room was a complete disappointment. Whilst there was an added shower and toilet off the main room, the sink was in the main room. There were no... More

The hotel is at praca da se close to all museums, churches and restaurants of the old town. From the airport one can take the 1001 bus close to the hotel. The hotel is very stylish: beautifully decorated rooms, coffee&tea, and a varied breakfast. Staff also speaks English well.
