This amazing hotel is in a 17th century neighborhood, behind a narrow facade on a narrow street. It was a wonderful surprise to find spacious, modern rooms inside.
The staff were all wonderful. They gave us great tips about what to see, where to eat, and how to get around. They set us up on an excellent 3-hour walking tour that cost less than others we had seen.
One person even solved my ongoing problems with VIVO (Brazilian) cellphone service. He not only got it to work, he also found me a better plan for less money!
One gentleman, Claudio, told us his job was to make sure the guests enjoyed their stay. He clearly meant what he said. One night when we were too tired to go out, we ordered room service. The room service menu is a very limited list of heat and serve items. So Claudio brought us a menu from an excellent, nearby restaurant and arranged for the owner to deliver.
Our top floor room was huge with an airy, tropical decor. It had two balconies, offering views of both the bay and the city. The bay view does include some loading docks, but they looked magical at night when covered in lights.
There is a small, but lovely infinity pool. It was a beautiful place to enjoy the sunset and watch the lights twinkle on the docks.
They have a nice breakfast buffet. The cooks make all the little pastries and snacks, and they will cook eggs on request.
The only drawback to this hotel are the stairs. If you have any mobility problems, don't consider an upper floor room.
