“Best hotel in my whole three week trip around Brazil.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2011

This charming boutique hotel is perfection. The location is ideal, being right in the centre of the historic district. I had a beautiful room with a spacious terrace overlooking the bay. The rooms have been extremely thoughtfully designed. The only very slight problem I had was that it took ten minutes running the bath water before it was hot. The reception staff speak excellent English and were very helpful with information and restaurant recommendations; and the bar/restaurant staff were super friendly.

It is a beautiful Hotel with a charming "French touch" (the owners are french), really cosy (10 rooms), well situated in the old part of the historic city. Stayed 6 nights. I had a great room with the view on the superb bay of Salvador. The pool and the roof terrace are wonderful with astonishing view of the bay: the best timing is when the night is slowly falling.. The owners and the staff are really helpful and they can give you very good advice on many subjects (where to go in the city, what museums to see, what beaches or island to visit).

Room Tip: Try to have a room on the bay side.

Beautiful hotel. Nice and spacious rooms with great view of the bay.
Fantastic service. Staff are so helpful and warm.
The restaurant is very good.
They give good suggestions for day-trips, shows and restaurants.
The pool area has also a nice view.

This was my first trip to Salvador, Brazil. I use tripadvisor all of the time to review hotels and read past guest comments. I was a little skeptical of how such a small boutique hotel could have so many excellent ratings. Well, after staying at the hotel for 3 days in March, I must say they deserve all the positive feedback. This hotel exceeded my expectations. I loved that they arranged for my pickup at the airport. The hotel is in the middle of all the action in the section of town called Pelourinho. We were only steps away from great restaurants, music and shops. When checking in, one of the owners personally came to greet us. Then, the receptionist Paulo Jackson gave us tons of useful information about Salvador (dining/music/etc) and a detailed tour of the hotel. The comfortable bed and the bay view from the room was a slice of heaven. This is a very well designed and quiet hotel. Everyone at the hotel made you feel like it was your home too. I was amazed at the politeness of the entire staff from the breakfast servers, bartenders and various receptionists. The staff made our trip to Salvador amazing. We had a problem with a tour I had booked with my travel agent and the hotel helped us at the last minute find a new tour guide that was amazing. We will definitely return to this hotel. In my opinion there is no need to consider other hotels. Simply, Hotel Casa do Amarelindo is the best!

we came to stay here for carnaval and found the hotel a haven from the frenetic activity outside at that time - the owners are very attentive and their team is excellent so newcomers feel informed and welcome very quickly - biggest bed i have ever slept on and a great position to explore the pelourinho - now we need to return at a quieter time to really explore the whole city...best breakfast we have had on a year of travel

This is our third stay at the Amarelindo, and our first time during Carnaval. The hotel is an oasis in the midsts of the colorful, active and constantly moving Pelourinho area of Salvador Bahia. Stepping inside one is surrounded by beautiful sculptural renditions of the Orixas, tropical plants and light! It is very quiet, even on the street side of the hotel (even with the bands going by throughout carnaval). The staff is very helpful and what they do not know they will look up for you. They arrange for taxis and transportation to anywhere. The views on to the sunsets on the Bahia de Todos los Santos are breathtaking We could go on and on. Comfortable, very safe, and totally amazing! This is not a high rise hotel on the beach but it is a home away from home (something a high rise can never be).
