Great hotel in salvador! We loved the rooftop bar and terrace with a caipirinha in the evening. The staff are really helpful and booked two delicious dinners for us. All in all it seems like the best place to stay! We had a room on top floor - no balcony but lovely view!

Our experiences reflect the incredible rating many of the other reviews have stated. Rooms were clean and spacious, beds extremely comfortable and staff, top notch. The breakfasts were special and plentiful, to the point we coud never quite finish them. Fresh fruit, juices, breads and eggs with peppers and veggies, good coffee and great staff. When we tired of wakling... More

This is long overdue review as we stayed here in September 2014. Service was excellent in this charming hotel in vibrant salvador. The hotels owners were fabulous and went far beyond our expectations in terms of hospitality and generosity. We mistakenly left some clothes in the wardrobe when we departed for our next destination praia de forte. Once we realise... More

Upon booking with Booking.com, the hotel sent me a very descriptive email of everything that I needed to know about arriving. The email was personalized for our late arrival (after 2am) and the staff took the time to respond immediately to all of my email correspondence. We used the taxi service offered by the hotel due to our late arrival... More

We stayed here for 1 night as we stayed in Praia do forte the other nights. The hotel is very central - in the middle of the 3 main churches and round the corner from the lift to the mercado modelo. Staff is very friendly and the food is quite nice. Breakfast is table service not buffet so if you're... More

Our two night stay in Salvador was greatly enhanced by our stay here! From the minute we arrived we were given a very warm, genuine and informative welcome by one of the French owners and in truth it was his passion and hospitality that makes this an ideal stay while in Salvador. The room was clean, had a view of... More

Having spent many months all over Brazil from humble pousadas, friends' homes in local areas to luxury accommodation, Casa do Amarelindo was one of my three favourite stays. I originally booked for a few days and extended my stay for well over a week because I fell in love with Salvador. Amarelindo had everything to do with that. The hotel... More

We travelled with our 3 adult children. The hotel is situated right in the centre of the historic area and the whole are was decorated for Carnival it was very exciting. The hotel is not a luxury hotel but its location makes up for what it may miss in comfort. On saying that our rooms both with balconies and port... More

We came for one night during carnaval and couldn't resist coming back for two nights at the end of our trip! The hotel is beautiful, decorated in Bahian style, with care and great taste. First of all, the beds are huge, we had beautiful views on the balcony of the bay both times. The owner and everyone who works here... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with 3 kids and it felt like paradise coming back to the hotel after walking around the busy bustling city of Salvador. It is within walking distance to everything in Pelorinho and to the lower part of Salvador. We took a taxi when going to the beach and stayed within the recommended area when... More
