This was a great place to stay in Salvador! It is very close to the Pelourinho, which has busses that run to the rest of the city. I felt very safe here (as safe as one can feel in Salvador), and the staff was able to help us in both English and Portuguese. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was great!
The manager was very friendly and helpful. The location is good, away from the central bustle and noise of central Pelourinho but near enough to fall part of it. The outside areas of the Pousada are very nicely maintained, with a good sized smimming pool and lawn area. My rook was spotlessly clean, with air conditioning, TV and fridge. A very relaxing place to stay.
I was given a room with a balcony and view! Staff really helpful. Maybe more local products for breakfast.
Very close to old quarter, Pelourinho. Staff very friendly helpful about places of interest and where not to go. Good advice about safety of tourists. Casual eating area with great view of old city, and pleaseant good sized pool.Recent renovations will enhance the reception areas and accommodation. Room we had booked wan't available due to renovations. Staff very apologetic and reduced the booked price. Standard double rooms a little small and air conditioner was noisy.
Very nice hitel, well situated, great for carnaval because close to the attractions but still far enough to get some rest
Excellent location and quality of staff, very helpful and going out of their way to please guests. My son visited while we were there and he was treated like family! Not really !
Everything was really good except that the hostel did not offer us the room that we booked. We were downgraded since the hostel double-booked our room. Having said that, we got a discount and the rest of our stay was excellent.
great location, good breakfast with fresh fruits and juices. comfortable pool, the manager Glauber Cayres was extremely helpful in english. It is close to the old city which is great, but can be a little noisy...
Nice people, clean elegant place near the Pelourhino. Good internet service. 5% discount when paying cash.
everything I loved it, people were fantastic, so friendly. The location is great. Amazing views of the historical center, and still really near by. Yummy breakfast!
Owner collected me from the airport and confirmed he would do this both by text and e mail. Breakfast very good staff nice all round good service. Perfect for me as I arrive late PM and leave Am the next day. Not sure if you want to stay to look at Salvador you may want to stay closer to city, However interesting hotel in a quite location
Liked the owner who was very helpful. The area is really spooky.
This hotel is one of the most beautiful for individual travellers I have ever seen, ideal located in a real authentic brazilian ambience, close to the airport, close to beautiful beaches, and the service is excellent, fantastic breakfast, friendly personal, many thanks, we will come back!
Rolf, the owner was a 110% star. Nothing was too much trouble.
Very beautiful, very different, very amazing ambience, excellent service, the room and all the hotel very clean. This is a very special place. We will come back!
This is one of the wonderful Dream Hotels for individual Tourists, very beautiful ambience and room decoration, here you can really feel the authentic brazilian flair, and I enjoyed the unforgettable fantastic breakfast.
Very beautiful Design Hotel for individual stay, fantastic breakfast and excellent service. The staff is very friendly. We liked it very much.
Only one person to take care of the services to the customers
Very beautiful hotel for individual holidaymakers, very friendly staff and very comfortable stylish accommodation, and the breakfast was absolutely the best we ever had. Thanks a lot for the happy holiday
the owner could not have been more helpful,he picked us up from the airport..dropped us at a restaurant for dinner,picked us up..and the following day,dropped us off at the airport for our flight,at minimal cost. the reason for choosing this hotel, was its proximity to the airport,for our early morning flight the area was a bit remote to restaurants, it reminded me of a ryad in morrocco...wonderful when you get through the door,but difficult to find if you are in a taxi..which we didn,t have to take, as the owner drove us everywhere.The beds could have been better,but all facilities were catered for,and excellent air-con,and ceiling fans
A uniquely restored historic building that respects very well the original setting without missing a modern edge.
The Convent is really nice Not the hotel but th city of Salvador is not in best conditions
Stunning building with stylish interior design. Decent restaurant with a a good maitre d'. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms a little dark.
Beautiful hotel in the old centre of Salvador, with all the comfort you want. Nice outdoour area for lounging, good bar, nice swimming pool, all set in the beautiful garden of the old convent. The dinner at the restaurant was not that special as one should expect regarding the prices they charge for dinner.
The staff was friendly. The overall grounds were nice . The air quality in the room was poor. It smelled musty all the time despite turning on AC. Opening the window was a welcomed relief. In addition the room charge was done upon check in which was unusual.
The room was recently renovated, confortable and clean. The breakfast was great. There was a huge variaty of fruits, salad, breads, juices ... The pool was also reasonably good. Internet connection was weak and not stable in the room. The minibar and the restaurant were overpriced.
Nice and friendly staff, nice pool and nice options of breakfast. The english skills could have been better for a couple of members of the staff. Further, the breakfast lady didn`t seem to enjoy the early hours very much.
Big room, however, it was unclear about the equipment of the room when booking, I was expecting a room with a batthub but apparently this was an upgrade At arrival, the hotel was no less than a club with extremely high music until 22:00, don't know about other guests, but I go to hotels to rest, not to party. At request of turning the music down I was completely ignored.
The design of the hotel and the restaurant.
Nothing The chief of the hotel made a party with african drums and it was very load . I made an international flight from frankfurt to salvador and my wife was not able to sleep. Only after 3 am it was possible. The restaurant closed 8:30 pm because of this party. I am surprized because this hotel has 4 stars. I stayed in other hotel with 4 stars and it was a great difference. The breakfast was simple.
I wasn't really there long enough to say, since I was only one night, but the clerk was very nice and the soaking tub was pleasant. I like to make the room cold and have a blanket, so something more than a sheet for the bed would have been nice.
Nice staff, comfortable bed.... None to speak of.... a bit more english speaking staff would be helpful but they do their best.
Design hotel. Room looked great. Staff was very nice. 2 blocks away from the beach only. A little far from downtown and the historic center but only a R$20/R$25 taxi ride away (about 15 minutes).
Et godt hotel, til en god pris. I udkanten af byen. Personalet meget hjælpsomme.
Personlet var søde og hjælpsomme, hotellet var pænt og rent, selvom det var et gammelt hotel. Maden på hotellet var ikke noget at skrive hjem om.
the atmosphere/feeling you get at the hotel - warm bahia style.Nice selection of local furniture/decoration. fyi- the reception staff are French english speaking. Very friendly people . Nice boutique hotel. price premium compared to other hotels
Beautiful antique colonial design, very large room (luxury room), staff very helpful. Wireless Internet didn't work in the room because of some kind of special security protocol on the second floor only. Had to go to reception area to connect with a normal protocol. Internet being very important to me, I had to change hotels, since the hotel staff didn't really understand what to do.
Friendly staff, antique type furnishings, excellent location in the most picturesque part of Salvador, delicious breakfast. Good wifi connection. Occasional loud music from outside, although not fault of hotel. Somewhat dim lights in room.
Best Hotel in Bahia! Location No 1! Interior Design No 1! Service and Food No 1!
The location and ambience of the Hotel Villa Bahia are exceptional. The rooms are large and elegant and one feels as if they are truly living a moment in the past...but with very comfortable ammenities! The staff is multi-lingual and very helpful. I enjoyed the first moment of our stay to the last! Awesome, truly!
The restaurant, the reception and the character of the rooms
Superb location. The best breakfasts of our trip. Lovely bedrooms. Very good restaurant. Really, really recommend it. Nothing
extremely helpful front staff was excellent for recommendations on food, tourism, and local events.....specifically, "Jefferson" was amazing! nothing......loved it all and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the historic part of Salvador
The Hotel Villa Bahia is housed in what was originally two adjoining houses one XVII century the other XVIII century. It is beautifully furnished with antiques and antique copies. It is located in the heart of Pelourinho, the historic disrtic of Salvador and a great starting point for explorations of this remarkable neighborhood so rich with cultural treasures. Irecommend it highly.
Hotellets personale er meget hjælpsomme. Holellet er ikke i speciel god stand. Morgenmaden er rigtig god.
Hotellet ligger dejligt ved kystvejen, og centralt i forhoil til byen og forretnings området. Området omkring poolen var desværre under renovering og derfor ikke helt i top, men ok.
view from the hotel room there were some small insects in bathroom and also room furniture. hotel is not an actual 5 stars according to European standards
The Bathroom was not clean,the room was not made up when we returned from Citytour at 2 pm.The Account was not right,but staff was aware that there was a problem with the System.There have been Items on the Account what we not had,like Tonicwater,double Food,couvercharge for sitting on the Bar for 1/2 hour.
There no free wi-fi, as it was notes on booking.com, internet costs 15br+taxes and works awful. All rooms have see view and little balkony. Breakfast is on the top floor with nice view also. Room was comfortable.
I liked my wiev from the window its just briliant....
the view from the hotel room was superb. when you go from your room towards the elevator you have fantastic view and nice relaxing music. the pool staff were great.
Excellent ratio quality/cost. Nice view on the ocean. Good restaurants, and nice spa facilities.
The view was great... It is very difficult to have friends visit you at the hotel whether an your suite or by the pool.
Great views, nice big room, great value, good location for the city centre and business areas. Corridor carpet on the 20th floor was stained and dirty. Bathroom needed some refurbishment.
Nice Pool, Location and Facilities Maid would take old towels and not replace. Front Desk translator got a pizza which I paid for through some questionable deal.
We only stayed overnight, arrived late, left early. Next time around we will stay longer, for sure.
It was cheap and close to where I needed to be. Breakfast was really skimpy compared to other hotels I've been to in Brazil. A/C would drip after a little while due to condensation, and at night that would cause it to "drizzle"into the room. There was only one hair drier for the whole hotel!!! The doors make a really loud noise to close, so if you are a light sleeper you might be in for a (bad) surprise.
The only good thing was breakfast in the hotel.
Hotel was clean and housekeeping was immaculate. Reception staff very helpful. Hotel is located a short taxi ride from tourist area in all directions
The location is good and on a bus route.. so its easy to get around. The shower was great! Hot and lots of pressure.. the cheapness of it all.. everything is economized...
The view from the public spaces....panoramic The rooms were shabby to dingy and not very comfortable. The sheets were made of polyester and did not fit the bed; they were unfitted.....by morning one was sleeping on the mattress. The bathrooms were dingy
the beach area was a lot of fun. the hotel is located in a safe area. the people and staff are very nice. great place to stay with kids. the wifi is not good.
good breakfast not impressive near bus terminal and city busses not in toruistic area convenient to shopping and transport
The price was afforable, Lots of random noise outside door. Lobby smelled musty. Bed was not very comfortable. No extra blanket. Only a thin sheet. Breakfast food average. Employees did not seem over excited. I would not stay there again.
A wonderful botique hotel in Pelorihno. Comes with an excellent breakfast delivered each morning to your door on a tray. Tuesday nights there is a musical festival on the steps right outside the hotel door - our room overlooked this festival.
A very special hotel, with a great helpfull staff, beautiful interior and rich in details. Absolutely a must for the art-loving visitor.
The place is a fantastic charming hotel, well situated, in the historic center. The rooms are big and romantic, and the people are really nice and helpful. Breakfast is delicious and has every day another surprise We really enjoyed our stay, and highly recommend this place!
The hotel owners, an extremely friendly Italian couple creates a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast is delicious and has every day another surprise. The location is great and you can easily walk to the center or to the peaceful Santo Antonio. I traveled by myself and certainly recommend the area and the hotel for female single travelers as well as couples. no
I liked both the room, very spacious and cosy, and the warm welcome received upon my arrival. Indeed the location is strategic if you want to visit the city. The only think that I would change is the the bathroom, it was not as big as the room, but for me it was ok.
Very nice decoration, excellent service, very friendly management, a boutique hotel like we like -
- Beautiful building, the integrated art studio, and the exceptionally helpful staff that must have at least spent an hour and a half on our several queries
I really liked the quality of the bed and the fact that breakfast was served at our room. On top of that the breakfast was excellent. I found it disapppinting that after staying there for 5 nights, we could not get a late checkout. All we could get was 1 hour more and we needed max 3. The hotel seemed quite empty so it did not make a lot of sense to us.
Very friendly and helpful front desk. Very nice breakfast served to your room. Central location at the heart of old town. Nothing
charming hotel, friendly hosts,good breakfast, nice restaurants in the neighbourhood rooms are orientated to inner courts with some lack of natural light and privacy (for a small cityhotel acceptable)
