This hotel is a wonderful find right in the middle of the Historic Centre in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The hotel is quirky and funky, with it’s rustic style and we felt our person and our belongings were safe here.
We took a taxi from the airport, but later learned there is a bus which is a mere fraction of the cost, we paid approx. 109 reals whereas another guest staying in the same area paid about 3 reals by bus, so if you speak Portuguese, investigate this upon your arrival.
The hotel it’s self is a renovated listed building, it’s close to all the action and in a location for carnival. We were able to navigate the local area and found that it’s about 5-10mins walk from docks where we were able to catch a boat to the neighbouring island of Morro De Sau Paulo, a paradise (place you must try to visit if staying here).
Breakfast is included in the rate and you will not be disappointed. In face we found that out of the 5 hotels we stayed in throughout our visit to Brazil, this hotel provided the best spread and didn’t charge us for extras, like eggs made to order.
Hotel staff are friendly and the front desk have a good command of English language, amongst others. All members of staff were very friendly, and patient and helped us a great deal since we do not speak Portuguese or Spanish and needed help with little things like buying medication at the local chemist when I got sick. Our room was tidied every day without us having to remind or request this and we had new towels daily. A/C was effective and we also had use of a fan in the room, again having stayed in several hotels across Brazil, we found this to be the best hotel we stayed in with the best staff, food, service and facilities.
You can’t go wrong, unless you’re looking for Glitz, Shine and Glamour, this is not your glassy modern hotel, it’s very rustic and very ethnic with African Brazilian influences. Lovely.
