Mercure Salvador Rio Vermelho
Ranked #8 of 110 Hotels in Salvador
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Having had a good experience at Accor brand hotels around the world, and specifically Mercure in Rio de Janeiro we decided to book the Mercure Rio Vermelho (and pay just a bit of a premium over the cheaper Ibis, which is the same chain, next door). Was very pleased with this hotel, and so much so that we stayed again the next year we came back. Great pool overlooking the beach with a small swimup bar (though there is not always a bartender there), a decent size gym and even a sauna. Rooms are decent size and very comfortable. Stayed at both the sea view and non-sea view room. I'd pay the bit of extra money and opt for the sea view room as they're slightly more modern inside and there's nothing better than looking out your window to the sea (though then again how much time do you really spend in the room...). The area of Rio Vermelho is safe and great with multiple eating options from the famous Acarajes to sushi to churrascaria (like Fogo de Chao) and drinking options both outside in a few squares to bars/pubs. Easy access from just down the street to take the local bus to Salvador's old town, the Pelourinho and cheap taxis back at night if you stay out late past the last bus. Overall had excellent stays here. Good hotel, nice rooms (especially the seaview rooms), good facilities with the pool and gym and friendly and helpful reception (and good English).

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and had a great experience. The highlights of this hotel are the pool, the view, the large rooms and the buffet breakfast. The hotel is conveniently located; close to restaurants and night life events. Their English is fair, but that wasn't a problem for us and we were able to get to where we wanted. The hotel is far from the airport, approximately 75-65 reals. From the airport to the hotel we were charged 97 reals. We booked the taxi at a stand in the airport. It's cheaper to just go to the taxi stand outside of the airport and hail a cab for there.

All and all, I would recommend this hotel for your stay in. Bahia.

The Mercure hotels are always a bit of a gamble, some are great and some should be closed immediately. The Rio Vermelho one is in the former category: good location, good service, decent rooms, great rate. The rooms are quite large, with slightly spartan furniture. The desk in my room kept threatening to collapse sideways due to its flimsy construction. Internet is free and of reasonable speed.
The restaurant is generally deserted due to the many other options in the area, but food is actually quite good. The breakfast buffet offers an average choice, but you can enjoy your coffee on the terrace overlooking the ocean.
The pool and patio are literally steps away from the ocean, and offer great views.
The historic centre is about 20 minutes away by taxi. You can also take the double-decker tourist bus that picks you up right in front of the hotel and stops at all major attractions in town.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the ocean side - they're more expensive but the views are spectacular.
