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

I was in this hotel during 5 nights for the World Cup in Salvador. Nice view on the ocean, nice pool, but the rest is really disappointed for a 4 stars hotel. It's not clean, that smells like in my grand mother's house, the breakfast is not that good...It's not a hotel for the 21st century.

We chose lovely Salvador Bahia to Celebrate my birthday and booked the Pestana as our place for lodging during our 8 day stay. I must say, everything was great! The breakfast is authentic & superior! Our 6th floor room was cozy and had the BEST view of the ocean & city ever! Waking up to the sound of the waves... More

From the pics it looks great. But when you get there, you can easily see that this hotel has been neglected for a long time and they're really "trying". It's a bit weird because they are trying to modernize everything - They've got some modern furniture (moreso in the rooms) but the upkeep of the place is poor. The best... More

I booked one day stay at this hotel to surprise my boyfriend for valentine's day. I loved the view and pool and also the room was very nice, spacious and clean. Bad things: service sucks, but really we had to wait one hour to get a coke and one expresso. The staff seemed unhappy and unsatisfied to be working. At... More

The front desk seems to always have one staff with at least some English, but nowhere else in the hotel (bars, restaurant, etc) When I got robbed on the street and needed to look up phone numbers and cancel things, I managed to get pointed to the business centre computer, and to use the phone in my room 25 floors...

The location is great - overlooking the ocean, this was a former Le Meridien Hotel. Staff and service excellent, I was staying on the VIP Floor level. The problem is the lack of maintenance, old rusting pipes, rust on all metal fittings on balconies, caused by ocean breeze - but this shows a lack of experience by the Hotel Management... More

This place is a bit like an old lady in need of some TLC, a lot of potential but not quite there. Staff were, with one exception at check out, friendly and helpful. Rooms are very spacious, but a bit dated. The balconies were nice and the view was breathtaking, which always scores extra points with us. Unfortunately we heard... More

This hotel is dirty, the paint falls of the wall, it smells like a basement ! Don't go here ! And it's very very expensive for what you get , they should pay you to spent the night there! I think this hotel was built in the sixties and after that not a penny was invested to maintain it. The... More

Despite the excellent location the hotel has seen better days. The maintenance and the cleaning of the establishment were below expectation. The room had a beautiful seaview of Bahia but the windows were not cleaned for a long time, furniture and curtains deserved a makeover. The air conditioning has no temperature control and can't stand the summer heat of Bahia.... More
