Wonderful Hotel in an old monastery, that still exudes the spirit of meditation from monks of the past centuries. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere, good for relaxation and simply a delicious retreat from the insane world. Even though this is a quite big place with many rooms, you do not see crowds or feel like in a busy Hotel. Family friendly... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my brother to end our 2 wk trip in Brazil. It's in the heart of the old historic district and larger than you imagine. Check in was pleasant and we were shown to our twin room promptly. The whole place is an ex monastery so it's really different to anything I've... More

Pleasant hotel located in an old monastery. You feel like you were 200 years ago. Reminds me of the Spanish Paradores, this allows for a good rest. The round shaped swimming pool in one of the yard is an oasis to relax in with double beds with curtains... Rooms are small and tend to be dark like the monk cells... More

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.

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....
