    Tea and coffee facilities in the room would be nice as this is standard in most hotels that cost a lot less. The restaurants around the area are average and nothing special but are expensive for what you are getting.

    I stayed in two boutique properties on my recent trip to Salvador. The other (Casa do Amarelindo) was a tad friendlier, more professional, and had a few more creature comforts. BUT for history, tradition, elegance, and style, nothing can touch Hotel Villa Bahia. The rooms don't have numbers; they have names (and years) associated with Portuguese voyages of discovery. I stayed in Gana (i.e. "Ghana"). Room was large and comfortable, filled with beautiful antique (or faux antique) furnishings. High ceilings. Appreciated the small bath. The only real flaw was that the shower had substandard water pressure. Breakfast was good. Was happy to have dinner one night in the high-end restaurant. Very good, though portions were small. The building is awesome and fun to explore. The small back pool patio; the quaint roofdeck. Location couldn't be better. On one of the main pedestrian streets, just steps away from the Church of San Francisco -- Salvador's greatest site. It was raining when I visited the Church. I barely got wet, the entrance was so close to the hotel. Overall, not only nice but memorable.
