When I asked for a taxi the receptionist told me to find one outside-----none there! I asked again an due then ordered one. Another night the two taxis outside refused to take us to a restaurant nearby. The hotel needs to ban taxis that only want t ale customers on long trips. On the fRiday night the noise from the...

We stayed here for 4 nights in an extra large room on the 7th floor. This was right next to the construction site but this did not bother us. The noise is not that bad! However on Friday and Saturday night the noise from the beachside carpark party kept us awake! The windows/balcony doors really need double glazing to cut... More

As a spu-of-the-moment decision, we ended up having to stay at GT Rio Vermelho, but I had prepared myself mentally and emotionally to deal with issues, which as usual came! Location is really prime, even with the hill to climb on foot and despite the construction beside the hotel, which shouldn't block the view at all. Actually, the view is... More

This is an excellent hotel in a real Salvador hot spot. It's close enough to the restaurants and bars but secluded enough to be quiet and escape from the action. It's your typical 4-star hotel, however, it's most reasonably priced. Hec, the room service is cheaper than a lot cheaper than most of the local restaurants. The service of the... More

I booked a standard room for three nights to the backside. Rio Vermelho is a nice and safe neighborhood and due to its nightlife my favorite spot in Salvador. The hotel is on a hill, during the day until 10 pm they give you free transfer up and down the hill if you want (ask at reception uphill or the... More

Fair price and service. The hotel needs to be renewed. Old carpets, old rooms. The location is very good and the view is amazing. If you're not up to something fancy this might be a good option. Rooms are quite big and clean. Good beds and showers.

This hotel is located in a nice neighborhood, with a very nice swimming pool and a very good breakfast. To be better, they should have a transfer between the hotel and the main street. We had to walk and it is a long distance in a hill.

The guys from the front desk were really amazing, specially Daniel and Kleber, who has checked us in much before check-in time, we were on a group of 10 people, same family, 5 rooms, and we were all accommodated. Plus, we had... More

The hotel has stunning views of the Rio Vermelho beach. The surrounding district is full of bars, restaurants and nightlife - many of them are located in a walking distance of just a few minutes. The restaurant provides a "better-than-average" meal and breakfast. Staff is OK, but thumbs up for Ms. Ligiane, the waitress at the lobby bar who is... More
