Spent seven days here. Would go back, just for the sunset across the street on the beach and the excellent breakfast. Good location on the beach, WIFI OK a little slow during busy hours, best included breakfast while traveling in Brazil, helpful staff. Rooms OK but a little dated, but good a value.

That was the worst price/quality ratio we got through our 3 weeks travel in Brazil. We booked a double room with the sea view and were put in the room on the 1st floor with half of our view hidden by the rooftop of the nearby building. On request we were quickly moved to the 5th floor, which definitely was... More

I loved the location, amazing view of the ocean, nice staff. Breakfast was a lot and very good. The hotel is very clean and inexpensive. Taxis will charge you about 100 Brazilian Real which is 30-40 US dollars to take you to the airport which is 45 minutes drive.

Firstly the manager of this hotel went above and beyond to assist us during our stay in Salvador. A lovely man. The hotel was in a great location right across from the local beach. Our timing was great going off season. Relatively inexpensive. Room was nice. Pool is lovely. Had a high floor with an ocean view. Great sunsets. The... More

The Hotel is located in one of the best areas in Salvador! You can walk to the famous "Farol da Barra" where there's plenty of restaurants and landmarks. Beach front, spacious rooms and magnificent breakfast with continental and local food. Only 10 minutos (drive) to the famous "Pelourinho" (taxi only R$10.00 = $3.5) . Beautiful pool area, good restaurant and... More

The hotel is very well located just in front of Barra beach, which is one of the best in town. Rooms are big but a bit bare-bones, and my room had an unpleasant cigarette smell on the first days. Breakfast was average. The hotel provides towels for beach and pool goers, but they are not always available in sufficient numbers.... More

I classify this hotel as a 3 star hotel, not 4 star. Even though the rooms are clean, spacious, good breakast choice and hotel provides everything what you need for short stay in Salvador for quite a good price. Location is really popular resting place for local residents, so it should be quite noisy for somebody.
