Good hotel located in a hotel area about 10 km from downtown where you can see the "pelourinho" and "Lacerda lift". The staff were friendly, good variety at the breakfast buffet and reasonable internet speed. The room was comfortable and with good space, but the balcony needs some repairs probably damaged by the the sea air.

To make it simple, the only thing that was nice in the hotel was the nice view (16th floor with full sea view), even through the dirty windows. The hotel is in such bad condition that I don't even think that it would be allowed to do business in Europe or in the US... From the cockroach seen in the... More

Not close to a five star hotel. Pros : setting is spectacular with wonderful views of the ocean. rooms in "new" wing are large with two bathrooms, sitting area, two tvs. The hotel is very close to a wonderful restaurant; Casa Teresa. Cons: service is truly terrible. Wait at reception desk to checkin, checkout, ask questions of receptionist can be... More

Fantastic views of Salvador by the ocean! Nice, clean rooms and good AC and bed. We had to be moved twice in same day since door to safes were removed. We were told they had to be "re-set" after vacancy but we had to wonder why they put is in rooms twice without have "reset" the safe doors. They did... More

We asked for two sandwichs, not only they came more than 1 1/2 hour late, there were not the one we asked for and we asked for a pineapple juice that... More

My wife and I stayed at the Pestana Bahia during the last week in March. Consistent with the comments from other reviewers, the view from our room was spectacular. As far as our room went, the bed was firm and much to our liking. The room was clean. On the negative side, the towels were of significantly low quality (I... More

What once was a great hotel, is now decadent and poorly managed. It is not the worst hotel you will ever stay. The pool area is fairly good, the room is also OK (if you get a renewed one),and some of the staff is quiet nice. The problem is this is an old and not well conserved hotel. Parts of... More

I had seen a couple of average reviews online, but decided to stay there the first night I arrived in Salvador so I could wake up to the view of the ocean and city. When I arrived I could not have been more happy. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the night view amazing. I sleep with the... More

local telephone calls and the phone in your room really expensive, if you pick up the phone and dial the number and no one answer you still have to pay a dollar and ninety three cents. location was great For me always like to stay close to the water.what I like was free wifi and the breakfast was good.
