We have the opportunity to know this hotel in a private event, and even considering that it was closed for our company this hotel is awful. It is hard to make a review when you don't have nothing good to say, but i think that this is a good watch out for other people planning to know them. When entering...

An older hotel with big spacious rooms. The staff is not good with English but someone can be found to help you. The breakfast is good but bland. There is a lot to choose from and so you do not go hungry.

The hotel is pretty standard for what you'll find in the area and close to the city center which is great. The thing about Salvador (and Brasil in general) is that if you want a really good hotel you will have to PAY really good money. So in terms of the average, this hotel is just that. We actually changed...

This hotel was aweful. It was so bad that once they checked us into the room, we immediately went to the business center to find another hotel. We did not even spend the night. Room was cold and the bathroom was dirty. Mold was on the ceiling and the sodas in the minibar were dirty. The staff is really young...

Upon arrival, they couldn't locate our reservation and made no effort to communicate or apologize while we stood there for 30 minutes waiting. Seems they had to enter the booking manually, then they tried to charge more than we had reserved for. Finally got the keys to our room and realized they put us in rooms with double beds and...

The Good: Salvador is an amazing place with rich history, architecture and cuisine. The bar man, the concierge, the bellmen were all great people who were willing to go the extra mile to help us. In as much english as each person could they gave us directions, suggestions and were truly eager to ensure that we had a good time...

Check-in was a circus. The front desk folks couldn't find our reservation, then tried to charge us the wrong price and sent us to a street view room with twin beds when we had paid extra for ocean views and requested a queen bed. The two ladies who checked us in made absolutely no effort to communicate with us or...
