We had a large room overlooking a noisy highway. The bed was comfortable. The bed post was filthy. The curtains and floor were filthy. The shower stall does not have a door so when you take a shower the bathroom floor gets all wet. We had a gecko, a cockroach and a centepede as visitors in our hotel room. It... More

Interesting location and staff in the rapidly upcoming Pelourinho ('historic') district. Not for the inexperienced traveller - the owner warns you of all the streets you should not enter at all, or not after dark. This really means taxis everywhere, except 10-6PM. The street side rooms could be quiet except for revellers, ones overlooking the bay has motorway noise except... More

Only a wall to look at no view whatsoever! I cannot believe this is a standard room. More like a hostel of less stars. Only a cold water tap in the wash hand basin. Never ever stayed in a hotel like this. The receptionist could not authorise changing to another room. We are the only guests staying at the moment.... More

We arrived at the hotel late at night and was met by a very happy chap on reception! He carried our very heavy suitcases to the room for us, no mean feat on a winding staircase! He showed us to our room and told us to call him anytime if we needed anything, he was very helpful. The room was... More

We stayed here in the last week of May (before the world cup rush). We were a family of three with a 1.5 year toddler. I would recommend the hotel as a safe, clean and comfortable place to stay with very friendly and knowledgeable staff; however, I wouldn't recommend it if you have trouble with stairs or are travelling with...

We went to Salvador for the FIFA World Cup and even though the area the hotel is at isn't fancy or developed, it was still very pretty in a historical sense. The hotel itself doesn't seem like much from outside but inside is pretty nice for the price you pay. The exceptional thing however is the staff. Everyone is willing... More

A lovely small boutique hotel in the old city of Salvador, close to all the tourist attractions.Rooms are clean but avoid those overlooking the street at the front unless you want to participate in a midnight carnival. Breakfast is served on the terrace with perfect views over the waterfront and the bay. Excellent service.

We had a short time to stay in Salvador and wanted to stay in the Pelourinho. Very nice small hotel. Our room was on the last floor, nice volume and confortable. Top star for the hot shower: it was a real boiler not the ordinary electrical shower that you can get more often than not in Brazil. Downside: the bathroom... More

Nestled just 5 minutes from the Pelorhino section of Salvador. It is beautiful in it's simple, artsy charm - beautiful art throughout. The staff, especially, Alvaro at the front desk and atelier Flavia go out of their way to make your stay exceptional. Great breakfast every morning! We would definitely stay here again.
