The hotel is a wonderful example of a boutique hotel. The superior room has wonderful old wooden floors, and is dressed in a plush colonial fashion. The rest of the hotel is modern and clean but still hold the feel of intamcy of a grand house. Zank and his staff are polite and work hard to and with pride to... More

I've stayed at Zank twice and it's always very pleasant. It's far from the city centre but it's worth the drive to Rio Vermelho. The staff is very calm and helpful and the breakfast is really one of a kind, full of choices and delicious treats from bahía. Rooms are modern, comfortable and well designed. I appreciate the small details... More

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights as part of our honeymoon adventure around Brazil. Of all the places we've stayed in Brazil and around the world, the Zank was by far the best from a customer service perspective. The staff made us feel like king and queen in our palace (not like we're just another one of... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Zank. The hotel had a very nice driver named Carlos meet us at the Airport and delivered us to the hotel at a fee cheaper than getting a Taxi. Upon Checking in, we noticed how clean the hotel was and we could tell they invested quiet a bit to make... More

The staff was extremely accommodating. The pool area was small but designed very well utilizing modern style techniques. In the evening the stairwell and hall lighting was motion centered. The rooms were modern and minimalist. Everything seemed clean and exceptionally well maintained. The TV is a flat screen on the wall but quite small. Also, the wall separating the room... More

Its started off well. A pleasant and hospitable greeting/check-in and first impressions were definitely good. But then..... dinner in the restaurant was mediocre at best. I had tempura (very oily) and white fish as a main course (severely over cooked!). No salt and pepper on the table. No napkin. I ordered a tonic, but they didn't have tonic. And there... More

Fabulous design and facilities and all with an amazing view. We stayed in Room 2 in the old part of the building and whilst it was a little small and we had lots of luggage there was so much storage space and such a spacious bathroom that we managed perfectly. A joy to have such sea views from both the... More

The hotel was really pleasant to stay in. From getting a coconut juice welcome drink, to the simple design and clean and comfortable room, we really felt the Zank Hotel was a great deal and perfect way to spend our time in the city. Our room had an amazing view out over the water. You will need to take taxis... More
