After having read the very positive feedback on this hotel and having had positive experiences in the past with other hotels from the Pestana's group, i have booked confidently. My first impression has been very positive- had arrived by night and the lights plus the old convent infrastracture were very charming. I pointed upon my arrival that I was allergic... More

Was at the Convento do carmo during the second week of June for the World Cup with my son. The hotel is beautiful and a calm oasis from outside. Great location. Walking distance to the old town and plenty of restaurants and sites. The staff were fantastic with both of us. I am embarrassed to say my Portuguese is non... More

We enjoyed our stay in a loft suite at this converted monastery at the end of our World Cup trip. The location was right in the historical centre of Salvador. The room was spacious and comfortable and all the public spaces in the hotel, including the 2 courtyards, were lovely. The included breakfast was good, but we had been spoiled... More

We chose this property precisely because it was a unique restoration and conversion. Having stayed at the Copacabana in Rio, we had already experienced a high end Brazilian hotel, but this was one of the highest rated hotels in Salvador, and the only one located in the charming historic district of Pelhourino. First, the front desk staff had to do... More

Conveniently located in the middle of Salvador historical city centre (the Pelourinho) this hotel ensures privacy and peacefulness among the quite cahotic and vibrant centre of Salvador de Bahia. Rooms are quite small, though, even if the sight over the historical patio is absolutely remarkable.

We were in for a big surprise on reaching the hotel, since the façade is still the original together with the beautiful church attached to it. This old monastery is, most probably, the first building in the area. It has been tastefully converted to a 5* historic boutique hotel. The ante-room has a large statue of Our Lady of Carmel....

The hotel used to be a convent; so the building has been beautifully renovated, it's very spacious, had amazing views and is very well situated within the historical city center. The staff was always very helpful and gave us great suggestions for our daily activities. The breakfast buffet was nice. There's a cute little pool within one of the central... More

This is a really wonderful hotel. Set in an old convent building with thick stone walls it is a cool and quiet retreat from the Pelourinho outside.
