Hotel's Favorite
From the moment of arrival, this is really first class service. Guests are shown around the hotel, which is a truly beautiful building, very tastefully decorated. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the public areas are very classy indeed. Bedrooms are gorgeous with excellent facilities. Superb luxury showers in an enormous private bathroom really felt like a treat. Some lovely touches too, including robes and a nice selection of bathroom products. The restaurant is lovely and the food very good. The caipirinhas are wonderful! It seemed important to try several flavours. Great to have table service for a great breakfast that is included in the price. My only slight criticism is the cost of basics in the room minibar. For example, 9 BRL for a small bottle of water when they are being sold for 1.5 BRL in the shop one street away. Hotels of this sort of quality often give at least 1 small bottle of water a day free of charge in any case. Leaving aside this minor quibble , this hotel is a place firmly founded on traditional ideas of service. Staff cannot do enough for you. It’s the best hotel I have stayed in during my stay in Brazil.

Dear guest, we immensely thank you for choosing our hotel and taking the time to post this terrific review. We felt extremely happy and proud to have achieved making you enjoy that much your stay in Salvador, in particular thanks to the quality of service provided by our team, always genuinely committed in offering the best hospitality experience. Your satisfaction is by far our highest priority and most precious reward. As you may have noticed, we offer one free bottle of water per stay, informing that our tap water is totally safely drinkable; the prices of the minibar are defined in line with those practiced by the hotels of the same category in Salvador and, for such reason, hardly comparable with local street shops or sellers. We hope to have the great pleasure of welcoming you back next time you visit Salvador, best regards, Didier and Gilles.

Casa do Amarelindo is a wonderful boutique hotel located in the center of Pelourinho in Salvador, Bahia. We got two rooms with terraces with a view of the bay. Breakfast was also very good and it is served ‘all day’, which was fantastic as we arrived very late on our first night. I’m not giving it 5 stars for two reasons: (i) we arrived at 2 am and the street where the hotel is located was closed - we had to walk 2 blocks in a dangerous neighborhood with 7 bags and no one from the hotel came up to help; and (ii) the hotel charges for Nespresso coffee - which is not on line for a hotel of this level.

Dear Poli, we thank you very much for the very kind words regarding our hotel, its decoration, comfort, service, breakfast served with no time limit.. and perfect location… reason why we felt a bit sad with your late arrival observation. It´s true that the hotel is localized in the very heart of Pelourinho district, which is for sure one of its highest interest, but alike many historic cities, this is linked to some traffic restriction. We always inform our guests of these access limitations, giving transfer recommendations (direct access to our hotel is possible anytime by taxi or our own service). For guests booking through a travel agency (your case), access to the hotel is the agency responsibility (as a matter a fact you pay for it..!!); being also fully aware of these restrictions, they should organize your most comfortable access. Therefore we don’t believe to be fair making us responsible for any lack of quality of such service on your arrival. We´re sorry if you were a bit disappointed by the fact we charge the Nespresso coffee in our rooms but, as you rightly noticed, we´re a small boutique hotel and not a luxury five star hotel with rates three times higher than we charge.. we hope you understand. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back next time you visit Salvador, Best regards, Didier and Gilles

It was already our second stay in this hotel. This time we spent 15 days there. From arriving in the hotel until the departure we experienced an incredible good service by the whole hotel stuff. The room was large, lovely decorated in afro-brasilien style and spotless clean, especially the large bathroom. We enjoyed the beautifull view from the balcony on the bay. Although the hotel has only 10 rooms, it is equipped with a littly gym and an outdoor pool which provides an infinity-like feeling when you are swimming. Most important, the hotel has an excellent restaurant, which - in our opinion - is the best in Pelourinho. We highly recommend all travellors to Salvador to stay a little bit longer than only 2 or 3 days in Casa do Amarelindo, because this provides you the opportunity to get a real impression of this pretty hotel and its beautifull surroundings.

Cherished guests, you can´t imagine how happy we felt knowing that we managed making this second and much longer stay in our hotel even better than the first one some years ago! Firstly we have to thank you immensely for trusting our place being the right one for such a long immersion in Salvador. Secondly for your extreme kindness, during these two weeks, and then for posting this wonderful review. We couldn´t receive better rewards than feeling your sincere satisfaction, as there is no higher motivation for all our team than providing the best possible hospitality experience, in particular for long staying guests. We´ll now be waiting for the great pleasure of welcoming you back in your home in Salvador… Warm regards, Didier and Gilles

We had an amazing stay at the Hotel Casa do Amarelindo and loved every single detail of it -the beautiful decoration of the room and the bed size, the healthy food, cakes, juices and fruit offered as breakfast, the location in the heart of the Pelourinho … absolutely everything!! The staff was super welcoming and friendly and they even arranged transfer from/to airport for us. All in all a memorable stay… wish we would have had more days in Salvador and we will no doubt stay here again if we have the chance to revisit this beautiful city!!

· Amazing hotel. Wonderful, friendly staff. Main reception person always had great English which was useful for us. Very helpful coordinating arrival, departure and providing advise on sightseeing. The room was massive with great shower and amazing views of the bay. Loved the location as well in Pelourinho- lots of fun things happening directly in downtown which was easy for us to walk to and we took Uber or taxi whenever we needed to visit another neighborhood. Breakfast was included and was delicious - coffee, fruit, bread, yogurt, eggs. Would 100% stay here again.

We’ve spent one night in Salvador, before going to Boipeba, and this hotel was the perfect choice for us: right in the center of the Pelourinho, surrounded by good restaurants and bars. The staff at the hotel was absolutely great, always helpful and full of good tips! Breakfast was just as good as the rest and there is even a pool if you have time for it :) Arnaud & Paloma
