This is a business Hotel, but is perfect for any traveller, I would highly recommend. Location wise, dead in the center of Salvador, just near the magnificent Salvador shopping with an endless amount of shops, restaurants, cinema and whatever you want and just down the road from yet another great shopping center, the Iguatemi shopping center. On top of that, the Pituba area which is close by, has many classy restaurants and great nightlife. However, if you want more of the classic Salvador, like Pelourinho, or the beach scene at Barra, this would be a bit far.
The building is top class, totally new, clean, modern, up to date facilities, top quality, large rooms with large balconies, though, it would have made more sense to have table and chairs, instead of large empty balconies. World class Daikin air con, 2 units per room. Good shower unit, shame about the bathroom, being so tiny and no space for much personal items. Large working area, very sophisticated, good internet connection, all in all, if you like it modern, international style, this would be your best option.
Breakfast, good, decent selection of foods and options, clean, classy, the same that you would expect from an international 5 star hotel, however, the restaurant and room service food is quite hit and miss, not consistently good and not constantly bad, but consistently non consistent.
Some good English speaking staff, attentive service, notwithstanding the all so common Brazilian practice, of making you pay for the whole stay upfront, which is somewhat annoying, but is common.
In summary, a great choice of Hotel in Salvador, especially, if you are not a first time tourist or are not bothered by taking a taxi into the more touristic areas, surely much cheaper, safer and more modern and you definitely get much more for your buck.
