The room was clean; the staff was friendly and the temperature was nice and cold. They have the typical amenities, pool, internet and breakfast (which was quite good). The price was fair for the time of year in Rio. Location is a bit far from airport and center of town. Area was safe and close to the beach.
Good for PricePosted Sep 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
Its a nice Hotel. Nothing fancy, just the basics for a good rest. Theres better options on the surroundings, but for the price is a smart decision.

A complete mistake!Posted Sep 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
Nothing as described on this site. Building site next door and 100 reads taxi from airport. Best thing about hotel was clean sheets, breakfast, view and, oh yes, checking out. Manager Luis was courteous and understanding.

Good location near sitesPosted Aug 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
I was very pleased with the hotel. It is worth the small additional fee to have an ocean front room! This is an ideal hotel for visiting Salvador, Bahia. You will need to take short, inexpensive taxi rides to more interesting restaurants and places of interest. The front desk is more than helpful. They will go out of their way to make sure you get the best out of your visit.

pleasant hotel, nicely placed.Posted Jun 25, 2012
Pros: place, staff, location
Cons: air-conditioning system in the room
Location: strategically located in the best area.
The hotel is strategically placed in the best part of the city. The only thing with the room was the air-conditioning system, annoying as hell (loud sound and uncomfortable circulation of the cold air around the room).

Villa gale- a disapointment 5 years later!Posted Jun 10, 2012
Pros: The views and the breakfast were great
Cons: The hotel maintance and upkeep is lacking
Location: ok location
I have stayed at Villa Gale about 5 years ago and I loved it. This time it's very disapointing. The main lobby was under renovation, which we were not aware of it. The was no signs to get to the check-in desk and things were disorganized and customer service was not their priority at all. Our room had an amazing view of the Christy of Barra and of the ocean. The window was leaking so they placed a towel on the ground. Also the tub/shower leaked all over the bathroom when we showered. It used to ge a great hotel but the are losing focus on the minor details such as the upkeep of the rooms. Don't plan on going back there...will miss the great views for sure...:(

Definitely not a 5 star hotel by International standards. More like a three star property.
