“Good business hotel”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip in November 2013. The hotel is on the upper floors of a commercial building, and accordingly I felt that in general the hotel was austere - which was fine since I was there for business. I thought the rooms were very well designed - a massive desk great for working that looked out across the room (and accordingly one has a "view" while working). Ask for an upper floor - if I recall correctly I was on the 24th floor and my colleague was on the 21st floor. I could see the Atlantic Ocean from my room, whereas she could not.

The exercise room has a treadmill and some weights - but left a little to be desired (like a lot of hotels in LatAm and Africa) - not sure how stable the treadmill really is by the look of it.

The hotel is not in the Old Town or near the water (it is a drive to either), so consider if important to you. It is right next door to Shopping Salvador, an ultra modern shopping mall with a great shops and restaurants.

Good hotel, but a few odds and ends missing. My room when I checked in was missing a remote and the TV was already on a local talk show. The only way I could turn off the show was by unplugging the TV. Also, someone traveling with me could only get cold water in his bathroom/shower.

Stayed November 2013, travelled on business

Just 2/nights stayed with all the family 'cause of a my business trip: and we stayed completely good.
Well located, modern and clean hotel, with comfortable, lighty and large room. Relaxing pool and jacuzzi al the top floor.
The breakfast is really good and plenty refurbished.
The staff is friendly and helpful enough.
The price is certainly adequate.
Definitively a good solution for visiting Bahia and travelling on business as well.

Very confortable, near the financial center, with good restaurant and swimming pool.
The rooms are new, big and clean, and has a good space for work. The wi-fi is very fast!
Only problem for those who is on vacations - the hotel is not close to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor for a quieter room

very good hotel, all new, big room, big bathroom, close to airport and good restaurants as barbacoa and bargaço.
Bar in the penthouse, with nice pool and jacuzi. Good view from top of the hotel.
I really recommend this hotel for business, youmcan be here also for vacations, but it is not close to the beach, we will need a taxi.

Reviewed 30 August 2012

3 weeks after I left this hotel and paid in full, my company's credit card was charged £616 and then a further £598 on the same day, an enormous sum of money!! The total for my stay was £240 which we paid for through expedia. We are obviously furious that they have disclosed our credit card details but also extremely annoyed that the hotel has taken an obscene amount of money without even contacting us to query it. We have no idea what it was taken for, it's a monumental mistake on their part. We have had to cancel the card, seeking a refund and have still yet to hear from the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel or booking through expeida for that matter. Your bank details are not secure and it has been a huge headache.
