Stayed here for one night, since our other hotel had no air con. Front desk was friendly, we were put in 1086 and 1084. The rooms really reminded me of the all inclusive rooms on resorts. The lobby, gym, pool, fitness looked good. My room had a musty Moldy damp feeling. I would not have been able to stay longer... More

I took off a few days during a business travel and stayed in this hotel. it is god 30min taxi from the airport - about 110 reals each way. The staff speaks English = plus. Our room was in the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and sea, a very nice view, worth the extra money for sure. The only disturbing... More

Booking a stay at a Mercure hotel is a guaranteed positive experience. The Mercure Salvador Rio Vermelho isn't different from that. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hallways outside the rooms were warm and stuffy, but the air conditioning in the room and breakfast lounge were in perfect conditions. Breakfast is great, with a cook preparing omelets and...

First class service, breakfast very good. The room was very comfortable. But need more attention on room service, my dinner was cold. The bathroom stall glass was encrusted with dirt, a sign that cleaning is not careful. The restaurant is very nice, fair food, if you don't want to look for someplace to eat in Salvador won't be frustrated. Pool... More

This hotel it's quite alright , rooms on top floors with ocean view will give you a lovely view on the morning . Location it's good for business and not so good for beach related activities . Lots of restaurants on a walking distance. Rooms are clean and staff friendly , good breakfast

We chose to stay in Rio Vermelho for our trip to Salvador and for us this hotel was the perfect option. We had a seaview room with a fantastic vista over the ocean, which was a real bonus. The room itself was comfortable and quiet with a good bathroom and efficient aircon. The hotel pool is wonderfully located right above... More

If you don't want to stay in the old area but on the beach then this is a great option. There are a few restaurants in safe walking distance and the hotel has a nice pool and beach access. The rooms are not super large but have a good work area if there on business.

Very nice hotel and location! We had a view of the pool which overlooks the beach, the view is breathtaking! The hotel provides an awesome breakfast which included many pastries and foods that represent the Brazilian culture. There was a friendly women who made fresh omelets and tapiocas in traditional dress which made the experience that much more pleasant.. Great... More
