Could Live Here!Posted Nov 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
My husband and I spent 5 nights at this amazing hotel and had the best time! I can't even describe it's beauty and pictures don't do it justice. They put so much thought and time into and it's breathe taking. The breakfast was amazing and the service incredible. They were all sooo nice and accommodating. If we ever go back to Salvador again, we will for sure stay here. We went mid November. LOVED IT!

Very helpful and friendly staff in a great spacePosted Sep 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Really enjoyed the hotel, which had a number of things to do on site - rooftop bar overlooking the harbour, pool, fitness centre, restaurant. The breakfast was amazing...it came in three servings for the two of us. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, and spoke good English. The hotel location is great as it's in the historic district; you can walk right outside the door and be in the midst of it. To get to the beach requires a taxi ride.

Highly recommended hotelPosted May 18, 2013
Pros: The professional and friendly staff.
Location: Ideal; it's situated right within the pelourinho area.
This hotel is situated right in the heart is Salvador within easy access of most points of interest. The staff are polite, helpful, friendly and very professional. The hotel is spotless and great care has been taken to make it homely and intimate, yet modern, clean and well appointed. The hotel restaurant serves very good food. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Amenities include a pool upon a lovely rooftop terrace and gym. The decor of the hotel draws inspiration from Candomble and is filled with beautiful pieces of art. I enjoyed this hotel very much, made all the more enjoyable by the staff. I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

Don't missPosted Apr 4, 2013
Pros: Food, decor, attentiveness, location
Cons: Not very important, but a little weird to be a single person in a California King, but maybe that's because I got the last room available?
Location: Not a beautiful street but authentically in the heart of things and near main squares
The excellent food, the charm of their renovation and decoration of a hotel with only 10 rooms because they left them big...the attentiveness including Gilles rushing halfway to the airport to give me earrings I'd left behind..the location in the heart of things and yet a retreat into the quiet lobby, bar, pool deck..plus the double-paned glass to keep out street noise is brilliant and I believe unique in Pelo I had also considered the most expensive hotel, Convento do Carmo, but on my visit I see its not really in Pelo and would have been an extensive walk to the heart vs. the Casa's equivalent of 2 blocks I was also set up with a wonderful guide Carol as well as, one day, Creuza. I was traveling alone for one thing, but also I saw places I'd never have seen.. If its in your budget, do not miss this hotel

Great location for tourismPosted Jan 26, 2013
The location of this hotel is excellent for people who want to visit the old town. The food in the restaurant is very good, the best we had in Salvador Bahia. The staff is generally very helpful - some more than others, but overall good. Make sure you coordinate a taxi with the hotel for arrival. The hotel taxis are allowed down the street, which is pedestrian. Otherwise, make sure the taxi leaves you at Terreiro de Jesus, where you can walk down the hill. We did not arrange a taxi with the hotel and were left at the bottom of a very steep hill carrying our suitcases uphill.
well located for a short stayPosted Nov 17, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was everything we had expected. A beautiful renovated old town house in the atmospheric centre of the old town. Lovely and clean, comfortable and relaxing. Good breakfasts though they do go overboard on the fruit juices. Be very careful if booking excursions as some of them are to your part of town, not good if you've paid to wander around outside your own front door.

great place to stay in SalvadorPosted Jul 17, 2012
Pros: Location, charm, food, staff
Location: Location is primo. The Pelourinho section is small but you're right near the theatre. There's a store across the street that sells beer, wine, snacks.
The Casa do Amarelindo is lovely, well run, clean hotel with much charm and excellent food. The breakfast is not the huge buffet style but rather a filling breakfast consisting of lovely fresh fruit, some eggs with ham and cheese, juices, and a slice of some wonderful pie. All the water at the hotel is filtered so no need to worry about the ice in drinks or eating salad. They serve a nice dinner too. The room was not large but quite charming with a very lovely deck where you can eat or drink your wine or beer. The staff was very helpful and specifically steered us away from touristy crap we might otherwise have done. Don't miss going to the Theatra near by...the show is an incredible hour long performance of dancing and music. A great stay.

Loved itPosted Jul 1, 2012
Location: Its in the historic, but poor part of town. Perfect for visiting the historic sites of Salvador, all within walking distance.
The place to stay in Salvador, close to the historic center, architecture and the local buzz. The location can be a bit scary, especially at night. The historic center is where the poorer African community lives. Talk to the hotel reception and they will tell you what areas to avoid. The hotel is a beautifully maintaind boutique hotel with a great view. The breakfast can get a bit predictable, but nice overall. Rooms are a bit smaller, but hardly gets in the way. The bathrooms are functional but a bit dated. We spent a couple of days and it was perfect.
