The pool is much smaller than in the pictures, the rest is like being in a museum the corridors, stairs and patios. You have much more for breakfast in a simple Ibis hotel or 3 stars hotels than here. The internet doesn't really work. The bathroom floods when you take a shower but very good products and amazing rain shower... More

Staying at Pestana Covento do Carmo is a great experience. All the amenities of luxury in a place that was formerly a convent. First the patios are so charming and unique, with their large spans, arches and wooden ceiling. When walking in the corridor going to the room, it will remember you something of shining (the movie) but also you... More

The hotel, as its name implies, is a former convent. The spaces are huge, high ceilings, lovely furnishings, a glorious swimming pool surrounded by rooms and a bar. The room itself was large and well-furnished. Like many hotels in foreign countries, you encounter clumsy steps: in this case a step up into the bathroom that wouldn't be a problem for... More

We stayed here for three night while touring Brazil. The hotel itself is fascinating and the rooms are well appointed. We had an upgrade to a loft room which was very spacious. Unfortunately while we were there it was virtually deserted (we had breakfast by ourselves every morning) which meant it was bit like the Marie Celeste. The one downside... More

The hotel is located not far from historic center, on top of the local hill so the fresh breeze can reach there easily which is pleasant. Local street are full of local life so if you feel safe (and you can be sure that there IS safe) you can enjoy a good meal right 50m from the hotel. Sporting equipment... More

A convent built 430 years ago and converted into hotel making it by far the oldest structure I've ever stayed in. Right in the middle of the historic section of Salvador, I could walk out the door and in a few minutes walk to all the historic sites of the city.
