Well located to the Salvador city beach, real close to main attraction which is pier. Rooms are spacious, clean bathrooms, breakfast very good with lots of variety's. Swimming pool is available, with sunbeds free to use. WiFi available in lobby, but for rooms you need additional passwords and it needs to be bought for further use after initial password runs...

This hotel is not as bad as some reviews would suggest. The rooms are very basic (why no lamps around the lightbulbs?)) but sufficient and the breakfast was excellent. We stayed here for 3 days but only received a one-day wifi card for one person, which was a bit strange. The neighborhood was like a huge building site at the... More

The hotel is rated as a 4 stars hotel but I would rather rate it 2 stars or less!! mmm... From where do I start? White lighting everywhere and two elevators only that looks like a service elevator and most of the time only one is working. The breakfast restaurant is terrible. The corridors are not air conditioned and to... More

It is a 3 star hotel in need of remodeling. It is not a dump but a few problems might get to you if you are on vacation. Rooms are of a good size but the safe was not working properly and the bathroom had a linkage and I changed room. The next one did not have the safe's door... More

Everything about this hotel is ok. The room was clean. The breakfast was plentiful (and included). The pool was big. The hotel is located in a safe area - near restaurants and a mall. It wasn't great but wasn't terrible.

I want to start by telling you the positives about this hotel, which I might add are few. The room had a working air conditioner, and there was a bed. I believe they bought the mattress from the ninety-nine cent store, along with the toilet paper holder, the lamps, and the furniture. Ok, now the negatives. Upon arrival and walking... More

Expensive for what it offers. The rooms have no acoustic isolation, you can hear the people talking in the neighboor rooms as if they were right next to you and can ever listen them flushing the toilet. To make ot worst the blackout on the windows are not long enough and it is one of the most sunny cities in... More
