    Everything was just perfect! Tudo foi perfeito! The staff was super nice and very helpful, the hotel is well located, the area is safe, the hotel is really cute! The breakfast is delicious! I loved the Candomblé tour they offer as well, I recommend it. I will come back to this hotel! A equipe foi super legal! Gostei do local no coração do Pelourinho, fica seguro. Gostei do quarto, o hotel é muito charmoso. A café de manhã é uma delícia. Fiz o a cerimônia de candomblé que eles oferecem e super recomendo. Eu voltaria com muito prazer!

    Great stay in Salvador. This hotel was clean, had excellent wifi and breakfast and very nice reception. Just make sure to not bring a rental car, it's a nightmare to drive in Salvador and in the Colonia city. It cost 100000 R for 2 nights, and a migraine.

    From the outside and inside I felt like I was in a 300 year old building with modern amenities. The staff was incredible, as was the breakfast. Even their hand picked drivers were amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. This was a lot better than our modern beachfront place

    Best place in Salvador de Bahia

    The hotel is perfect for a trip in Salvador de Bahia. The owner and the staff (from the front desk to the kitchen) are lovely and so helpful. The room are beautiful, big and very quiet even if we are directly located on the Praça de Se. Walking distance from everything you want to visit in Salvador de Bahia. I highly recommend this place.

    Diamond in the rough

    I was a little nervous when I got dropped off at the hotel. The surrounding area is kind of rough, and the outside of the hotel didn't look like much. I was very happy to see how nice the inside was. It is extremely charming. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bed was good, but a little firm for my liking. The staff were amazing. They spoke English and were able to help me purchase my boat ticket to Morro de Sao Paulo. I would not recommend going out after dark. There was a lot of screaming and yelling on the streets, and sounded like a pack of wild dogs were running around. Would highly recommend this hotel!
