Quite a good hotel, in a safe area of Salvador with access to many different restaurants and other services. It may be perceived as being "far from downtown" but a great option depending on your priorities.

We stayed two nights at the Mercure Vermelho. We wanted a good, well situated and safe accomodation for our visit during the Lemanja Festival. This hotel was the perfect place to be for us, it was the right choice! The hotel is well situated. You can easily and safely walk around and access the center of the village (of course,... More

It is difficult to find a better location in Salvador than overlooking the sea in Rio Vermelho. There are many good to excellent restaurants and always good music in a host of near bye venues conveneient to this hotel. So for a tourist to Salvador it will be an excellent choice based on the location. The view of the sea... More

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
