“superb boutique hotel”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Loved our three night stay in this beautiful hotel.
From the minute we arrived Gilles, Didier and their lovely staff made us very welcome and made sure we were looked after. We really appreciated such a personal and friendly approach.
The hotel is right in the Historic centre of Salvador, and therefore within walking distance of
local amenities.
The hotel is extremely pretty, full of the owners choice of antiques and paintings.
Our rooms were superb, with every amenity.
Breakfast was extraordinary with wonderful fruit, eggs and pastries.
I highly recommend this delightful and stylish hotel.

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel and it was totally relaxing from start to finish. The room was amazing with a view over the bay, it was large , clean, with very comfortable bed and soundproof. The top floor has a lovely little terrace to watch the sunset and the bay while enjoying the complimentary welcome Caipirinha.
Its the first place I have stayed where you can have breakfast wherever and whenever you want in the hotel which makes a big difference to planning your day if you are a late riser and the food was excellent.
I was travelling alone on this trip and at no time felt concerned about the area the hotel is located in and the team were very clear in making me aware of normal rules of wearing jewellery and avoiding certain areas in the evening. I visited the square close to the hotel on the Saturday evening to sit and watch the locals enjoy Samba, drink a beer and savour the local street food, it was a wonderful expereince.
My guide Caroline, booked by the hotel, was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, make sure to visit the oldest ice cream parlour. I would highly recommend her.
Wonderful team and I look forward to visiting again.
One point, not related to hotel, make sure to shop wisely for souvenirs, as the airport was half the price of items I purchased in Pelourinho!

We stayed at Casa do Amarelindo for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. The rooms in this beautiful boutique hotel are nice, stylish, large, and very clean. They are also soundproof, so we never heard any of the street noise. The best part, however, besides the great location, are the staff, who are absolutely amazing. The breakfast (included) is huge with many options to choose from, and also the rest of the food is simply delicious (we actually found it one of the best restaurants in the Pelourinho, and there are many good restaurants there).

I am extremely late with writing this review. I stayed at this hotel several months ago. However I have to say that I had a greattt stay here! The hotel is beautiful, staff is amazing and superbug location! In fact, Michael Jackson's video was taken on the block of the hotel across the street from here - which was cool to reflect on!

I was also able to experience a local street party that occurs every Tuesday I believe late at night. At one point during the night it became really loud with music. We rushed out to see what was happening and see all smiles passing by with the odulum playing the drums and all the locals happy and singing! Such a great experience to see!!!

The hotel owners are also so friendly, they greet all of their guests and made me feel welcomed and a home.

Needless to say, when I return to Salvador I will be staying at this hotel.

Thank you staff!!!

We had a wonderful four-night stay in Salvador at the Casa do Amarelindo! The staff and owners are super friendly and they made us feel welcome as soon as we walked in the door. The hotel itself is very clean and perfectly located in the area of the city where most tourists would want to be. The restaurant is also great -- in addition to the complementary breakfast, we had a delicious dinner and some yummy caipirinhas. Thank you C do A!

Quaint and charming with extremely helpful staff. Great complimentary breakfast with strong coffee. Very clean and spacious. Central area to stay in. Free wi-fi. Turn down service. All English speaking staff. Take the car service the hotel arranges. They drop you at the door and help with your bags!
