Charming place in a great location

Posted Sep 8, 2016
Pros: Staff, location.
Cons: It is a good value for the price, but perhaps the rooms could be a bit more comfortable. For example, i was cold at night but the bed had only a sheet
Location: Excellent location in the historic district.
The staff at Studio do Carmo is incredible - friendly and extremely helpful. The location is great, and the breakfast was good. Highly recommend staying here if you are in Salvador.

Great hotel, but not for kids

Posted May 31, 2016 on Hotels
Great hotel for a single or couple - not great for little kids or anyone using a stroller or wheelchair. Stairs are a bit treacherous. Great staff and location. If you want a more quiet night, don't stay at the front of the hotel, as the street life is quite loud.

Hotel was for a relaxing base from which to undertake day excursions in the national park.hotel was a great setting and clean with enough facilitates. Only issue was the slow service received at the pool bar making a single order complicated.otherwise this hotel was grand.

Hidden Gem

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: Breakfasts, staff and location.
Cons: Wifi.
Location: In the heart of the historical centre with many museums, shops and restaurants close by. A taxi ride to the beach and totally worth it!
Beautiful, rustic boutique hotel in the heart of the historical district. I looked forward to the continental breakfast on the lush terrace every morning. Our room was amazing, large and with a great view of the cathedral. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and really made us feel welcome and at home. I'll definitely be back!

Good B&B

Posted Sep 25, 2013
Pros: Location and staff.
Cons: Hot water!
Location: The main historic district is within walking distance with its lovely main square, churches, and shops.
Good location a couple of minutes' walk from the main historic district. Our room was spotlessly clean with a kitchenette to make fresh percolated coffee. Furnishings were simple but with rustic charm. Breakfast was simple but very good and items replenished constantly. Downside was no hot water in the shower. Overall we were happy with our choice.

GREAT LOCATION and quaint pousada

Posted Aug 28, 2013
Pros: Quaint, beautifully decorated rooms and location
Cons: Watch out -- if you dont have the cash to pay the remainder of your bill, it will be 20% higher.
Salvador is fabulous and the Hotel Studio do Carmo is a great place to stay for a few days. Helpful staff and excellent breakfast (no longer served in the room, but on a breakfast patio downstairs)

With great difficulty: avoid this horrible place

Posted May 1, 2011 on Hotels
The noise never stops, every night until 2 or 3 screaming idiots 5 meters from the room, and in the morning from 6. The breakfast is every time a problem, like ham when I ask NO ham because I eat kosher, or peach juice when I ask for orange juice. The ony receptionist who speaks English refuses to focus on my problems, it's all ''other people never have this problem'' or ''I do not see that as a problem''. The customer is never right in this hotel. Messages in the evening were not delivered until I asked for them specifically 24 hours later. The night receptionist was on substance it seemed. And order for Cola zero took 48 hours (!). Well, the outside noise was the worse part. The hotel staff joined them for a chat outside, and never asked anyone to be quiet, and that was at 02.00 a.m. Stay away from this dump till they fix their problems!
