The hotel is hosting some kind of private party outside the entrance. The music is so loud that even on the 15th floor and with earplugs in, I can hear it and I can't sleep. A relative of mine is getting married tomorrow and is trying to sleep upstairs. Absurd. For such a high price tag, you'd think they'd have... More

The hotel offers the best value for money I have ever found. The location of the hotel, right on the Salvador bay, must be one of the best anywhere. The hotel is very spacious, well-planned and decorated. It is 23 stories high (great for the view from rooms, and there are several very fast, efficient elevators) and the building is... More

Pestana Hotel has a very nice view and it is located in a prime spot for night life and good restuarants. However, the best beaches are not close and the historical center (Pelourinho) is also good 30 min away by cab. This hotel has Ok service and rooms but they lack some renovation - it looks wasted. It is good... More

The room was really nice, spacy and modern decorated. The lobby was also beautiful and the breakfast room along with the breakfast variety. The pool was nice, but it seemed a little neglected as the exterior of the building. Of course being by the ocean doesn't help. The view is spectacular, but being away from the center you have to...

I went for business, and met American friends there. We all were very disappointed. Good points: 1. The building is located in a beatiful place, with a wonderful view of the beach, from both sides. 2. My room, on 15o floor had new furniture, with a nice modern style. Bad points: 1. All the windows, including room, lobby, restaurant, looked... More

This hotel is located at the seafront with a wonderful view from all rooms. It is a hotel with an excellent structure and has more than 400 rooms. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel dependences,however, should be urgently renovated as most of hotel dependences are old and dilapidated. The service is very poor. All the staff should be... More

We went to Salvador to watch the quarter final happening there. Prices of almost every hotel in Brazil were off the charts but that was understandable. Sadly we were submitted to the Pestana experience. This was my first time at a Pestana Hotel. Be sure it will be my last. I can't understand how an Hotel Chain can sell rooms... More

Hotel is comfortable, but located quite far from city center. Nice view is an advantage, but rooms definitely require some renovation, doors are threadbare, safe boxes are too small. Breakfasts are Ok. Note that there are no any ATM in the hotel or somewhere close to it, exchange office may not work too. It may be a problem if you... More
