    Wow location and a nice hotel

    The location is perfect and we had the best sea view. Inside a little dated but nothing serious and the pool area and breakfast is good. Staff friendly.

    Great hotel except for construction

    This hotel is in a prime location for tourists who want to be based in Barra. There are lots of restaurants, small shops, supermarkets, and tourist sites available walking distance from the hotel. The upgrade to the ocean view room is definitely worth it. It is lovely to watch the sunset from the balcony. Breakfast is delicious. Tours can be booked on site. Staff was very helpful when I needed to change money. There are some downsides to the hotel. The lock on the hotel room door wasn't very secure and the light was out in the hallway so it was necessary to wander in the dark to find the hotel room. Additionally, there was significant construction going on during my stay and it was very noisy on some days.

    I loved this darling little hotel. This is Brazil not the USA, once you understand that you will love the place. My room is a good size, especially for a beach hotel. There is ac a balcony overlooking the best swimming beach in Salvador, and a small fridge with a freezer that works. The bathroom is small but clean and even a hair dryer. Yes its noisy at night but you don’t come to Barra for tranquility i just put in my headphones and stream my videos and don’t hear a thing. The sfaff is very nice and they speak English. I found breakfast very nice, with a mix of local dishes added to your standard eggs and sausages. I am vegan, gluten free and I loved it.

    It’s worth it to get a room with an ocean view. The location is good for the beach and shopping.

    Hotel muito bem localizado…e só! Instalações simples, com algumas coisas até envelhecidas, hotel de praia. Restaurante com cardápio fraco, no dia dos namorados ofereceram um menu especial que não valeu o investimento…não, a comida era ruim mesmo! Sem serviço de quarto, precisava buscar no restaurante que só funcionava até as 21h, após esse horário só tinha água na recepção. “Regras da casa” que não respeitaram quando uma noite “hoje nós fechamos mais cedo”. Café da manhã simples, com algumas coisas até ruins. Só o atendimento era padrão, lento e atrapalhado (um dia a arrumação do quarto foi dispensada pois chegou no final da tarde), exceto pelo Igor da recepção que foi atencioso. Provavelmente será repreendido pelo bom atendimento. A tarifa através do Hoté salvou do arrependimento.

    Localização e conforto com qualidade

    Não conhecia o hotel, escolhi pela localização e pelas fotos aparentando bem organizado e confortável. A experiência foi excelente. Apesar de ser um hotel antigo, o quarto que fiquei foi recentemente reformado, bastante coerente com as informações do post. Cafe da manhã bem variado, atendimento dos funcionários excepcional e tudo muito limpo e organizado. Voltarei

    Gostei muito do hotel, ótimo atendimento, a localização e muito boa, de frente para o mar, a piscina é ótima, apenas o café da manhã que não gostamos muito, pois uma pessoa pega os itens por conta da pandemia, preferimos quando usamos os itens de segurança e nos mesmos pegamos os itens do nosso agrado, mas no geral, gastamos muito do hotel.
