Amazing Hotel!

Posted Jul 12, 2016
My wife and I stayed here for about 8 days and had a sea-view type room. The view and the room was gorgeous. We were close to the town center and could easily walk to various sights. We were also just a short bus or cab rife from the beach. The hotel staff was extremely caring and thoughtful. The breakfasts were INCREDIBLE! This hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff is there to help you out with everything. I highly recommend this hotel and really appreciate the staff members who made our trip even more wonderful.

Great staff & restaurant in the historical centre

Posted Jan 13, 2016
The staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful - from organising transfers before arriving and in helping with orientation when there. The restaurant also serves outstanding food - Brazilian with a French twist. The hotel could do with a bit of an update to create more character but overall its a nice hotel thats well located in the tourist centre of Salvador.

Wonderful staff wonderful location

Posted Nov 2, 2015
Pros: Good location and good staff
Cons: The wifi is a bit spotty but Gilles mentioned this upfront and to be honest if you are on holiday you shouldn't need to be streaming stuff!
Location: Great location. The show they recommended is great and don't miss the golden church
this is a great little hotel right in the middle of the historic centre. Gilles and his team are really welcoming and very happy to help. Fantastic breakfasts and a lovely roof top bar doing excellent cocktails and tapas.

Charming boutique hotel, perfect location

Posted Oct 19, 2015
The staff greeted us with a detailed overview of things to see and do in Pelorinho and a coupon for two free drinks at the rooftop bar. We went up there right away. Spectacular view over the harbor. Also from our room. Huge king bed and charming room with new bath, including an immense "shower for two," with a rain shower. Huge breakfast included. A great place. Driving there is somewhat hair-raising up and down tiny cobble-stoned streets and getting to the parking garage, through innumerable one-way streets, is a challenge. But a lot of the area's charm is the absence of cars.

Thank you for your kind words. Yes Pelourinho district is pedestrian and coming by car can be tricky... but as you said it is part of the charm. Best regards from Salvador

Excellent location

Posted Apr 18, 2015
The hotel is located in the middle of the old town, safe and nice area, and has great staff with plenty of local knowledge. We had one of the top rooms with a beautiful view and a HUGE bed! Can't complain at all.

Best hotel in Pelourinho

Posted Jan 22, 2015
What a great stay in Pelo. Just a fantastic hotel experience. The owners Didier and Gilles go out of their way to welcome you to their luxurious little hotel in Salvador. They arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and welcomed us on our arrival. Very friendly staff made us feel really comfortable in this environment. Outstanding.

Excellent small hotel near center of old city

Posted Oct 14, 2014
We only stayed one night, but were treated as a long-term guest. Good breakfast, good restaurant. English speaking staff very helpful. Would recommend a room with balcony.
