Great views at breakfast, and delicious breakfast.. but the hotel rooms are gross. Beds not comfortable, No hott water, and horrible soaps. Not recommended to stay here..... Stay across the way at the Pestana. much better rooms. This shouldn't be considered a 4 star hotel at all.

The hotel is really disappointing!! Really not a 4 star hotel AT ALL. Positive points: - Free breakfast, but quality was questionable and lacked fresh food - Nice view - Staff was nice Negative points: - Location is not very good – not walking distance to anywhere – you have to take a cab regardless - Restaurant food was limited...

Lovely hotel for both business and / or a romantic stay. Luxurious rooms, roof top pool, beach side location and a walk away from some great night life. Only let down was the quality and choice of the food in the restaurant which was to to the same standard. Still a decent cocktail though!!

Arrived around 9pm. They gave me a bad room. Air conditioner wasn't working. There were no towels, body cream, soap. The mini bar was empty. Tried to go downstairs to eat at the bar and after waiting forever found out of many items. Asked for the housekeeper to fill in my minibar and she said only the next day.

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.
