There are some pro's and con's to this hotel. Pro: it's very close to the center (5 min walk), the rooms are clean and the people very friendly. The con's: small, very basic rooms and a very poor breakfast! But since it isn't expensive, roughly said you get what you pay for

When we arrived outside this place, just after dark, there was a loud party in full swing at the hotel, around the pool area. Therefore, the front desk clerk could not hear us ringing the bell at the locked gate. Our driver, was getting upset and seemed nervous to be outside the gate with our luggage etc. When we finally...

This is a small hotel only a couple of hundred meters from the Pelhourinho (historic city centre of Salvador). It is spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly. The breakfasts are an all-you-can-eat affair and spectacularly good, with loads of home baked goodies on offer as well as plenty of fresh local fruit, cereals and hot dishes. This is... More

The hotel is OK, fairly clean, OK breakfast, nice view and close to Pelourinho, the staff is good (except for one very nice but equally confused guy at the reception at night). Even though it's a 5 minute walk to Pelourinho (where the "tourist police" stands fully armed at most corners) the little streets to get there are in a... More

Located at few steps from Pelourinho, the welcome is good, specially with Claudio Maia. He gives you a lot of good plans to explore the city. The breakfast buffet is generous. The pool is an appreciated refreshing place. Wi-fi is a complete non-entity, excepted in the lobby but not much ! Rooms are pretty small, and with bad soundproofing.

We travel to this place when we want to be nearby the historical center, but not inside of it. I feel at home, safe, clean, and well attended to. This july we're going with the whole family of 6, with our older children who will enjoy the swimming pool in town, and the breakfast area... Kids addicted to internet...available at... More

The hotel is very close to the old city center. The staff is very friendly and gave us good advice where to go. Room very clean. The good breakfast was served outside on the terrace. Nice swimming pool with view on the old city of Salvador. Some evenings, you hear a lot of music from the Pelhourinho. Would go back... More
