This hotel was aweful. It was so bad that once they checked us into the room, we immediately went to the business center to find another hotel. We did not even spend the night. Room was cold and the bathroom was dirty. Mold was on the ceiling and the sodas in the minibar were dirty. The staff is really young... More

You may be reading this review to decide if staying at Vila Galé is a good choice. Be sure: IT ISN'T. I had a reservation to spend the brazillian's valentines day with my girlfriend there. We have coosen the best (and most expensive) room available. With a bathtube, balcony, king size bed and ocean view. When we reached the hotel... More

Upon arrival, they couldn't locate our reservation and made no effort to communicate or apologize while we stood there for 30 minutes waiting. Seems they had to enter the booking manually, then they tried to charge more than we had reserved for. Finally got the keys to our room and realized they put us in rooms with double beds and...

The Good: Salvador is an amazing place with rich history, architecture and cuisine. The bar man, the concierge, the bellmen were all great people who were willing to go the extra mile to help us. In as much english as each person could they gave us directions, suggestions and were truly eager to ensure that we had a good time... More

Check-in was a circus. The front desk folks couldn't find our reservation, then tried to charge us the wrong price and sent us to a street view room with twin beds when we had paid extra for ocean views and requested a queen bed. The two ladies who checked us in made absolutely no effort to communicate with us or... More

I was at this hotel for one night in January 2015. Staying here was a nightmare, and it was by far the worst experience I've ever had at a hotel. I don't know where to start, but I'll try : 1. None of the staff knows English. This makes it harder than expected, especially at an upscale hotel like this... More

Amazing staff. Internet a little slow but usable. Great breakfast with a lot of choice. The rooms are old but in good condition. Right next to the ocean with plenty of taxis on the door so you can go anywhere.

Situated right by the beach in the quieter area of town, I found this hotel to be excellent for My stay in Salvador. I had an ocean view room which was a great decision, as it really made the stay memorable. What a beautiful view to see everytime you walk in! The hotel itself is clean and more than adequate...

The hotel has the best location if you would spend the Carnival in Salvador! I stay at this hotel for more than 7 years in a row and they are able to handle the crowd very well.
