"Beautiful Hotel, great service, not so sure about surrounding neighborhood."
I stayed here for a couple nights recently. The hotel is very beautiful and they keep the grounds very nice and clean. The top deck pool area is small but very pretty with great views. They put out a lovely breakfast each morning and everyone on the staff is friendly. The surrounding neighborhood is questionable though. To be fair, I didn't have much time to explore as I was only staying at the Zank on my first night in Bahia, then went elsewhere for the week, then stayed again on my last night. I was expecting to be able to walk out of the hotel and be near more shops and restaurants and it's not really like that. The surrounding buildings look run down, the Zank is the nicest thing within blocks. They do make a great Capriana... I'd recommend a few of those on the roof top and you will be happy!

All is very unique at ZANK. From the reception area located in a colonial style house from the early parts of the 20th …More
My 17 year old son and I stayed at the Casa for 3 days during our World Cup Adventure. It was an excellent exprience. The owner is very pleasant and knowledgable and an excellent host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We felt connected to the Brazilian locals, yet separated enough to have all the comforts of North America.

We were in Salvador for a conference, and Hotel Matiz was one of the preferred hotels -- with good reason! Although our Portuguese was limited, the highly professional staff did everything to make our 5 night stay a delight. The food was excellent, both the evening meal and the included cafe da manha. Great selection and very plentiful. Taxis were always at the ready, and tours were quickly arranged.
Take a day trip to Praia do Forte and Projeto Tamar. The half day tour of the old city is wonderful.

From start to finish a very pleasant stay. The hotel is in a great location a short walk from the old town part of Salvador, and features cracking views across the bay from the back of the building and the terrace (although be aware the docks do also feature quite predominantly!)
Our room was at the front but didnt suffer from any street noise, while the decor and quality of the furnishings etc was top notch. The style of the whole hotel was amazing, with unique decoration and attention to detail, and a great pool/sundeck (although small as there are only 5 rooms it was never crowded)
The staff were extremely helpful with advice and guidance, plus happy just to have a chat about anything of interest. Breakfast was varied and high quality, with pleasant service.
Overall would definitely stay at Aram Yami again
