Quite unique staying in a converted Convento. Our 2 story Suite was very nice. Air conditioning worked really well. The room was just a bit dark and the bathroom a tad tiny, but loved the experience. The staff was very accommodating. The pool in the center was round and doubled as a fountain. I though that was creative. Full buffet... More

We stayed in a loft room with bedroom and bathroom on upper floor, living room and additional toilet on other level. The espresso machine in the room was a nice surprise. The reception staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet is average.

We decided to commemorate our friend's 50th birthday at this restaurant. To say it was a disappointment is an understatement. TERRIBLE food and mediocre service. When we sang happy birthday, our server turned and walked away never acknowledging the special moment. We asked to speak to the manager about the food but were told no one was on site. Incredible....

My family and me just spent a week in this fantastic hotel, probably the best hotel were to be. The friendly atmosphere mixed with the unique venue - a fantastic old style convent in the heart of Pelurinho - gives the opportunity to have a unique experience of the day and night life at Salvador. Rooms are big and cousy,... More
