The hotel's locations is strategic, close to shopping, beach, museums, sights e good restaurants. The hotel has a ample and secure parking. Coverage of the hotel provides a wonderful view of Salvador's marina and Farol da Barra.

Unfortunately not a very nice hotel , only the location is ok . It needs an urgent total facelift/renovation. Management need to buy new beds, linen , towels etc etc. We spend far too much time waiting for the lifts , very frustrating . Not sure how it is a 4 star hotel , mystery....

The hotel is old, and I mean it in a negative way, the rooms are average in size but they show signs of heavy wear, skirting coming off, toilet falling apart, hot water only in the shower and not the sink, limited amount of sockets, annoying internet cards, black mold in the bathroom. The elevators leave a lot to be... More

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.
