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).
