Loved loved this hotel. It was so beautiful and very artistic. The location is right in the center of old town. This has to be the best hotel in the old town. They paid a lot of attention to detail in the place. It also has a cute cafe and internet.
The only negative thing has nothing to do with the hotel but the location. It is very dangerous at night and early morning. There are many drug dealers and prostitutes but they have police walking around all day to protect the tourist.
Wonderful personnel, very very friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautifully decorated in colonial style, the best we've seen on our 4-week trip across Brazil. Delicious and grand breakfast with self-made jam, many fruits, fresh fruit juices, eggs, delicious bread, etcetera etcetara. (the best breakfast we've had during our trip).
Did not like the beggars, drugdealers and obtrusive sales people in the surrounding streets. There's no place for a quiet walk. That's a shame because Pelourinho is just wonderful. During daytime it's fairly save in the squares and streets where the tourists are (lots of police). When the night falls, it becomes very unpleasant and dangerous (less police).
The staff was charming and solicitous. The location was perfect for exploring the rich Cultural Heritage of downtown Salvador. There were quite good restaurants nearby. The décor had a lot of local flavor, and a nice touch of Bahia's history. The room was comfortable and well-furnished, though not big. The breakfast was simple, but very good.
If you are mainly interested on the beaches, the location might disappoint you. The hotel is also a restaurant, a café and an internet house, so sometimes you cannot find anybody at the reception desk. Two minor inconveniences: the bathroom door did not offer much privacy, and the room lock was slightly misaligned, making it difficult to close.
the owner and how he handled things / the breakfast / the location
slightly noise area on a saturday night
Very nice decorated and clean rooms in a very old but stylish building. The bar downstairs is nice as well.
I liked shopping and eating at the Pelourinho. The elevador Lacerda and Mercado Modelo are all walking distance too. Bus and taxi are a few steps away.
There wasn't curtains in our bedroom, and it got sunny pretty early in the day.
Inside the hotel the facility is attractively decorated, very elegant. The breakfast was delicious with the best coffee of our three week trip around Brazil. It was handy that an internet cafe was in the lobby of the hotel.
Our room was small. The staff was not very conversant in English but we were not at all conversant in Portuguese..
In the city center, very convenient, very kind personnel
Very good location in center of Salvador in Pelourinho, close to the harbour. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast, specially the juices.
The breakfast was fantastic with freshly squeesed fruit juice. We had to ask for eggs though but they were happy to oblidge. The bed and pillows very comfortable and a lovely bathroom with a wonderful shower head.
No air-conditioning therefore very hot and noisey as we needed to leave the window open at night and no TV or safe. Also no hanging space for clothes. The reason I would not reccomend the hotel is no air-conditioning otherwise I would reccomend it.
