Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

unfortunately a little bit far from the historic centre of Salvador and no nice beach near the hotel! but the rooms are nice, with air conditioning and WiFi connection. very good breakfast buffet as well.

few days before, I stayed at the Ibis hotel in Morumbi, Sao Paulo. The hotel there was quite more beautiful, furnishing was newer and modern.

Very good hotel with a great position along the ocean. It is a bit far from the city main sights, but they are easily accessible through urban buses that stop a couple of blocks from the hotel. By the way the hotel offers also guided tours for any interesting destination in the area, even if I didn't take any of them.
Staff is very helpful, especially a girl that helped me a lot with informations about the buses and other things.
The only little negative remark about my stay is that in my room the window didn't close perfectly so there was always some noise from the ocean, but it didn't bother me too much.

Very pleasant view, right to the sea, specially in the sunny morning. The service is basic and straightforward, appropriate to a business stay. The room is bigger than the standard for that hotel chain. The restaurant is open only till 22:30 but the bar stay open 24 hours. The room fridge is empty and we need to buy beverage or food in the bar. There is not so many food options to buy. The breakfast is fair in price and offers.

well located, clean, attentive staff. Breakfast room with over rate (depends on what kind of reservation you've done) but good quality. The wifi was regular and the signal fails sometimes.
Easy check in and check out as usual in Ibis Hotels.

We stopped here for our last night in Salvador after three weeks travelling. It was good to have the reliability of an Accor chain hotel such as Ibis for the right price. Our room was on the 8th floor and had ocean views and to the street. Was a reasonable size and appeared to be in good standard including a fridge, flat screen TV, double bed and safe. Free WIFi included but parking and breakfast extra. Staff were extremely helpful with quick & easy service. Location is not so good if you are wanting to see the tourist sites but there are plenty of places to eat nearby.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days/3nights around New Year's. The reason I selected it is mainly because I was very late, and the prices for what was left for my dates were pure extorsion! This hotel did not change its pricing for the 31st, which is really unheard of. So I paid around $50-$55 USD as opposed to $200+ anywhere else. To be honest at the rate that you pay it's hard/impossible to beat. At this price you can almost turn a blind eye on the cosco-like reception (you feel like a number), the mistake in the reservation and being sent to the wrong room, the average food at the restaurant (there are options nearby). Almost everything except the icy cold AC that really gets to you. I read about it, and wondered why the guy who complained didn't just up the temperature, but somehow it just keeps pushing cold air, and straight on you, as the rooms are very small. The rest is OK, the design and furnishing very adequate for a short stay and the price range.

Warning: There is NO POOL here! There is one at the sister property but here there isn't.

The location is decent, but far away from Poulerinho or any other major attraction (it took us a solid 45 min by bus to get there). Faster by taxi, and not overly expensive.

There are some restaurants around, so you won't starve. Also a pharmacy, a place for ice cream as well as a mini convenience store. The neighbourhood feels a bit on the very residential side, and at times deserted. I think it's safe but not having many people on the street sometimes made me feel uneasy in the evening, when I went to take a bus around 8PM. Do yourself a favor and taxi your way if you want to go further than 5 min away post sunset.

I heard a lot of good things about Rio Vermelho (where IBIS is located) and I guess I either never found the trendy section of it, or that I imagined something different. In any case: it's a decent neighbourhood but where I didn't feel like you can just stroll, sit in one of the many cafes or bars and grab a drink.

I would consider it again. But if you budget allows it, stretch to the Mercure property nearby. It's way better and does have a pool!

Room Tip: Ask for the view facing the hotel Pestana and Mercure (or the entrance). The other one in the back i...

Nice hotel with great breakfast with a variety to suit all taste buds.
Staff were friendly and helpful. it is situated in a good spot and has fantastic views of the sea. Should I return to Salvador, I would stay there again.
