I should've loved my 24 hour stay here. The location was great, the building full of charm, my dlx room fine and just what i was looking for. Except they did not warn me about the building works in advance. Drilling and hammering on the floor above for several hours in the afternoon and the same again the next morning... More

Thank you your review, which need some explanation for our future guests. Since our opening, 8 years ago, we continue to heavily invest on maintenance and up-grading our small hotel. It´s true that we started a comprehensive renovation of the DeLuxe bath rooms, designed to significantly enhance its facilities and comfort, and I really believe that the result fully worth... More

I loved this little place. So classy. So nice. The staff was amazing. The breakfast so good and so much food. The location is perfect. I really can't say enough good things about the hotel. Highly recommend and would love to go back soon. I loved Salvador and this area. I loved the culture, the music, the food and the... More

I pretty much believe this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Management/ owners takes personal care for every single guest. Food offered is the best deal. Breakfast is awesome. Every nice little detail in the hotel is unique. Its location also is perfect - right in the heart of the historical area Pelourinho. Stayed for 1 night,... More

We stayed here on two visits for a total of eignt days, and would choose it again if ever back in Salvador. The owners (French nationals), are usually present, friendly and accommodating. Rooms (ours was a larger one) are deluxe, well equipped and comfortable with all expected amenities. The only negative is the tub/shower which is an elderly jacuzzi and... More

I stayed here by myself for the last few nights of my Brazil trip. I had heard mixed reviews about Salvador so was slightly apprehensive. The guys at the desk on my arrival (Gustavo) was very welcoming and helpful with tips on where to go and suggestions. The hotel has a lovely roof terrace (prefect for a Caiprinha at sunset!)...

We stayed here a few nights and were very pleased with our experience for several reasons. First, it is very centrally located, literally a few paces from the main town square. Second, the hotel and the rooms are beautiful. We had room at the back of the hotel with a balcony overlooking the bay, which we would recommend. The bed... More

The transportation from the airport to hotel was hired. If getting here with heavy luggage, it is a good idea because the street is closed to regular transit. However, the price is twice as a regular cab. Quite efficient, though. The facilities themselves are top notch. Being ran by French owners, they really know about their business. All materials, decoration,... More

An absolutely amazing stay at the hotel. The rooms, the location, the views, the rooftop terrace, the dining patio, everything was just right. It is a real gem in the historic town of Salvador. I had a wonderful stay with some great food. The owners are kind, hospitable and considerate people. The staff is so friendly and hospitable.

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
