“Stay here in Salvador - Simply Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This was one of the most luxurious feeling hotels we have stayed in, and we have stayed in many hotels around the world. Everything you could desire is here, a very helpful staff, lovely dining room, pool with a view, lovely lovely roof deck with a bar and superb view, we also had a large private balcony with a view. The bed is the most amazing bed we have ever seen or slept in. I don't know what size you call it, but I called it the "King and Queen" because it seemed as large as both put together. My husband and I are both quite tall, so sometimes we find beds in hotel rooms that aren't quite big enough for us...this bed seemed like the utmost in luxury (and super comfortable, too). The bathroom was spacious with a serious jacuzzi tub, although it was quite hot when we were there so we didn't partake of the jacuzzi. All of these things were enough to recommend this lovely hotel, but the thing that REALLY endeared us was the AMAZING Breakfast in Bed. When we checked in, we were informed that if we wanted breakfast in the room, we coould just call and it would arrive in 10 to 15 minutes. We decided to give it a whirl on the first day. They brought a tray overflowing with all of the things we love, fresh fruit and yogurt, fresh fruit juice, lovely eggs, baked goodies, bread and a carafe of coffee. The only thing missing was a second coffee cup. We were about to ring for a second cup when a knock at the door produced another entire tray of delicious breakfast food....both trays had legs so that you could eat your breakfast comfortably in bed. It was such a perfect selection and we especially like the two huge glasses of fruit juice (orange and another variety which varied from day to day). I put one of my juices in the mini fridge each day and had it to look forward to after walking around in the hot sun. This was such a simply amazing experience that we repeated it for the next two mornings (or our entire stay).

We LOVED Salvador, it is so colorful and alive and we LOVED Casa do Amarelindo. The hotel and location were both absolutely perfect! If we are lucky we will get to go back some day.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor above reception with sea view. These rooms have the largest balcon...

right in the middle of the old town we found an astonishing place. Not only luxurious, but showing the love for all details.
a roof terrace with a breathtaking view over the harbour and city, an inside open court with flowers and trees, next to the outside sitting area of the restaurant which serves a delicious mix of french and brasilian cooking, not to forget the offer of exquisite wines at reasonable prices.
and the entire staff speaks english and is trying to pamper you as much as possible

Room Tip: standard is already phantastic

My friend and I have just checked out of this beautiful hotel today and we would thoroughly recommend it. Right in the heart of the old town, it's a small hotel, run by very friendly staff and has amazing rooms, our bed was the biggest we'd ever seen!

Breakfast is a really great selection of fresh fruit, meat, cheese and bread finished off with lashings of coffee and freshly squeezed juices.

The bar area is really relaxed and informal and the staff make awesome caparinhas, if you get Daniel serving you, try his passion fruit one, it's sensational.

What a wonderful surprise. We had the pleasure to stay at Hotel Casa do Amarelindo for two nights in April. The team and management were fantastic. The ambiance, location and dining experience was amazing. Our cruise ship pulled into port and we could see it from our window. Our room was superb, the king size bed, the largest we ever slept in. Great amenities and bathroom.The dining experience was exceptional. I can still taste their Thai Shrimp dish I had for dinner. The location is in the heart of the historic area, safe and very walkable to the sights. We could not have asked for a better experience. Needless to say we would return to the "Casa" and hope too, that others will enjoy this wonderful hospitality experience. Wait till you see the swimming pool and the rooftop bar is a great evening experience!

Room Tip: We upgraded to their better room with a view of the Atlantic!

This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in, we did stay Feb 2013, but I'm sure it has not changed. The location is right in the center of the historic area, perfect for exploring and roaming the city, the breakfast provided each day was beautifully presented and so tasty, the pool area was so peaceful, perfect to relax. The room was beautiful, the small attention to detail throughout the hotel make all the difference and give a real personal touch. I would recommend this hotel over and over! Thank you for a great stay.

I spent a lovely 3 days here in March. Run by a team of fantastic staff, Casa do Amarelindo is a beauty. The building itself is a haven of peace & quiet once you enter into the main doors. The bar and restaurant are also very nice. You can have your drinks on te roof terrace and watch the sun go down or you can sip your cocktails by the swimming pool. My room was splendid - with a nice seaview + a small pretty balcony. Excellent location, very safe ad ideal as a base for exploring Pelourinho. Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the harbour.

This is an excellent hotel with friendly hospitable people. The loction is central and great for getting a the vibe of this historic city. We were given good advice about personbal safety, local events and landmarks.

We had a good laugh with Adriano one of the Waiting team during breakfast and evening meals. The food was really great and as good as coule be found anywhere else.

Highly recommended.
