We have stayed at this hotel for only one night but we did like it very much! What a positive change after a horrible experience at an Iberostar Praia do Forte Hotel. At Pestana Convento do Carmo what we did like very much besides the beautiful hotel itself was the extremely friendly and professional service and behaviour of every single... More

We loved staying in this converted convent hotel. Unfortunately we stayed here during Easter and the police were on strike so our day tour to the country was cancelled due to safety issues with car and driver thefts. Also the theatre and museums were closed. However, the historic area was wonderful to explore with many security guards and police patrolling... More

Stayed here for 3-nights in mid-March of 2014. First, great location in the heart of Pelourinho. Walking distance to all of the highlights, restaurants, exchange houses, markets, etc. Staff was wonderful and their English was very good. Breakfast Buffet was very good and the food off the menu during the day at pool was fine. Not amazing, but not bad.... More

This is the oldest hotel I have ever stayed and I really enjoyed the experience. Although there is no hot water in the room, the staff members are always very helpful. The building and the atmosphere is just amazing.

Sloppy service. Great place but with no atmosphere. For the restaurant: the food is mediocre and the prices are excessive. Nothing comparable to the villa Bahia hotel or equivalent place in Salvador. On one word: do not go there!

The Pestana group has done a very good job of converting what was a very large and imposing convent into a hotel full of character. Our one reservation is that experienced by a number of other contributors, the fact that the water in our room was never more than warm. In Brazil one must accept the Brazilian concept of time,...

It is ia real historical building (former claustrum) and offers a break from the busy and noisy outside pelourinho.

The convent has been sympathetically converted into an excellent hotel and it retains the calm atmosphere that one might imagine of it in former years. The room I had overnight was very comfortable (but would have been a little small for a longer stay, in particular because of the small wardrobe) and the bathroom was well-appointed and well-stocked with the...
