The Historic Centre in Salvador, the Pelourinho, is now a UNESCO site with more than 800 colonial houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and buildings such as this hotel, the Pestana Convento do Carmo, a former 17th century convent. Our first room was too small for our needs so we switched to #235 a large room on the same floor. It had a beautifully renovated spacious bathroom with two sinks, a huge bed (bigger than king size), seating area with couch and table, separate work desk, extremely high ceilings and more. The hotel was a fairly close walk to the centre of the Pelourinho (the older part of the upper city) and lots of restaurants. However when we tried to walk to a restaurant the first night we got lost and police pretty much insisted that we take a taxi immediately to get to our destination. It did not feel safe to be walking about in the dark to say the least. The breakfast was disappointing - too many pastries and not the type of food we like (just brought to us table service and not buffet except for the last day of our stay) - however we could order eggs any style and they were tasty. The spa wasn't air conditioned but the therapist was sweet and the massage quite good. Had some internet connection troubles and communication issues with staff that spoke no English. Loved the "anti-stress" cocktail but the bar ran out of its fresh ingredients and we couldn't order it the next two nights we tried. Other than that a most pleasant stay.
