“A star hotel in Pelourino”
Reviewed April 1, 2012 via mobile


My husband and I spend 3 nights in Salvador in March 2012. Casa do Amerelindo is a beautifully designed hotel where it is obviously that much attention was paid to design and aesthetics. From the art work to the bed linens everything was superb. Our room was very nice with a lovely Terrance and a great shower in the bathroom. Although Salvador has quite a bohemian feel to it, once we stepped foot in the hotel we were able to enjoy all modern amenities. Two of our favorite things were the wonderful breakfast that we looked forward to eating every morning and the pool, although a bit small, that we enjoyed on one hot evening.

The staff spoke English and was generally helpful, but most of the employees except two guys had a mild to neutral attitude - we were just hoping that for the high price that we paid for the room that the staff and the owner would have been a tad more " receiving" and warm. Nonetheless, we would highly recommend this hotel.

Outstanding service from all staff and plenty of attention to detail from owners, who run this pousada like clockwork. Thoughtfully designed rooms, nice common areas, complete breakfast. Recommended.

the hotel is very nice and you find it in the neighbourhood Pelourinho in the historic city centre of Salvador in a street where no cars are allowed to drive, which is quite nice

our stay there was very comfortble, rooms were nice and everything is very clean, the breakfast can be served the whole day whereever you want, they have a restaurant and 2 very nice bars (one at the roof-top), a gym and a small but nice pool from which you can see the sea

we had a great time in this familiar hotel where you will feel comfortable by the time of your arrival

stuff is very friendly, service perfect

We stayed here and loved it (after leaving Convento Do Carmo which we could not get out of fast enough).

Excellent location, even has a pool. Great view. Nice rooms. Smiling staff and guests..... Could not have been more of a contrast with aforesaid Convento do Carmo.

I stayed at Casa Amarelindo for 3 nights, including the first night of Carnival 2012.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Gilles and Didier, the owners, live on site and their regular presence around the hotel ensures you feel welcome and are well looked after. All their staff though are also extremely friendly and helpful, and speak good English. I noticed this in every interaction, at reception, at the bar at dinner and at breakfast. For instance they arranged a full day private tour for me to Praia do Forte with an excellent guide at very short notice on the day when Carnival was starting.

The old house has been really well converted to create the hotel, and I loved the decor and the Brazilian artefacts they have furnished it with. My deluxe room was a good size, with a comfortable bed, good quality linen, quality bathroom products and fittings. So much better than the chain hotel I then went onto in Rio.

Breakfast was plentiful and a good mix of high quality fresh things, including a hot dish. Its a rare treat to find a hotel where breakfast is not a buffet.

The location right in the heart of the Pelourinho couldn't be better. Its easy to walk to many places, including several restaurants.

There are a few things that could have been better for me, but none particularly significant. The swimming pool is too small to swim in. The lift/elevator is very slow (but at least there is one). The advertised BBC World (and some other channels I noticed) wasn't present on the TV. Whilst for dinner the restaurant offered a nice change from the standard Bahian fare at nearby restaurants and the standard of cooking was good, I'm think the Brazilian/European fusion idea could be done a bit more imaginatively.

But none of these points spoilt my enjoyment of what is an excellent, friendly, well run small boutique hotel in the bet location in Salvador. As with many of the other reviews, I highly recommend it

Stayed for 2 weeks including all of Carnival. The location is perfect in probably the best street of the Pelourhino that for the most time is pedestrian only. We were in a room on the bay side, that even during the wild times of Carnival was quiet at night. There is a lovely pool to escape from the heat if needed and a beautifully decorated courtyard restaurant and bar. Our room rate included a massive breakfast…so no need for lunch. The restaurant served extremely high quality fusion meals that combined French and Bahia cuisine, with a decent variety of wines from South America. They also serve the strongest Caipirinha’s I had in Brazil. But the real strength of this place is the extraordinary dedication of the owners, who really treat you like family. I must say I have travelled the world, and this is my favorite boutique hotel ever. Congratulations to all!

It's definitely a valid experience. Not the best hotel you will find, not the best bedroom, but a very well located, extremely charming petit hotel. The staff is perfect. the restaurant is very good. it's worthy a visit, although I wouldn't stay long.
