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.

After paying for the room through an online booking service, I was confused about whether I would have a water view, and two beds for me and my friend. The staff and owner at Solar do Carmo made sure we had both, and provided us with the best room in the house, on the top floor (Room 501). Like most... More

This is the first time I've ever actually written a review - despite using Trip Advisor all the time to choose hotels. I decided to make an exception on this occasion, as we had such a wonderful stay at Solar do Carmo. It's 5 minutes walk from the centre of the historic town and is a little haven! Every morning...

This family run hotel exceeded our expectations.We loved staying in this historic section of Salvador.Rooms were spacious and clean.Well worth the extra cost to have a balcony and sea view.Exceptional breakfast.The hotel is loving decorated with art.The owners were extremely helpful and were always willing to recommend a museum to visit and would often draw a map.Highly recommend .

We chose to stay in the Solar do Carmo because we wanted a different experience having stayed in some ordinary tower block type hotels. We weren't disappointed. It is located in a street of partly renovated colonial houses and even though the area appears a little run down you get a great surprise when you enter the main lobby. It... More

Short walk from the town centre (old quarters) is a cute and cosy boutique hotel with tidy and bright room. The hotel staff was very friendly and useful. They even advised us which road to avoid at night. The pool is a little small (more like a jacuzzi) but was very relaxing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A hospedagem no Solar do Carmo tem um estilo unico . Primeiro, por sua arquitetura que preservou as caracteristicas do passado acrescentando um projeto arquitetonico moderno e original. Um exemplo e a escada helicoidal metalica contrastando com as paredes em tijolos antigos aparentes. O aconchego do hotel tambem se deve muito a sua estrutura fisica. Outra forte marca do Solar do Carmo e a vista espetacular de 180 graus da Baia de Todos os Santos. O deck-bar, onde e servido o cafe da manha e onde funciona o restaurante e um verdadeiro mirante para essa mistica baia. Ao final da tarde acontece o happy hour com por do sol . Uma boa hora para aproveitar a hidromassagem do pequeno spa para relaxar depois de um dia repleto de passeios e bons momentos. O hotel localiza-se na Rua Direita de Santo Antonio, famosa por cultivar as raizes historicas da cidade, tanto culturalmente, atraves de manifestacoes religiosas, festas e eventos, como arquitetonicamente, com casaroes e sobrados com cerca de 300 anos de idade. Antiga residencia de familias nobres e funcionarios publicos. ... more   less
