Solar do Carmo Hotel is located in the historic center of Salvador 35 minutes from the airport. Hotel is a good budget option for those willing to stay close to the main historical attractions. Rooms are small sized but in very good conditions. They all have internet access air conditioning cable TV mini bar and telephone. There is a small restaurant that serves breakfast and snacks where it's possible to have outside dine overlooking the beautiful Todos os Santos Bay. The hotel is set in an historic building from the 18th century fully refurbished and modernised before it was converted in a hotel. Lobby is small and the decor resembles the colonial period.
Some of the staff was very helpful. Hotel was close to historic center. Hotel interior new and modern.
Small ants/insects in the room. Found small geckos? in the bathroom. The first two or three blocks toward center city felt unsafe. The heavy police presence in the touristic areas of Salvador begins a couple of blocks away from the hotel.
