“Perfect bolthole in Salvador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

Hotel is in the perfect location just off the main square but from the moment you walk in it's an oasis of calm and sophistication... Fantastic service, amazing food (breakfast was great but make sure you have lunch here as well...) and beautiful rooms.

Room Tip: Superior room was fantastic

You couldn't be in a better location to experience the heart of Salvador. Our rooms were well done. One travel book said the bathrooms needed updating, but they must not have visited recently as the bathrooms were excellent. Good breakfast, wonderful rooftop bar and close to so many sights. Be sure to have lunch at the historic Convent hotel nearby. The owner could not have been more gracious and helpful.

Room Tip: You will have to walk up stairs, as there's only one small, slow elevator. If that's an iss...

I totally agree with all of the other recent reviews so I won't repeat. I will share what was unique for us. We only had two days to experience the history and culture of old Salvador so we asked Gilles, owner manager to arrange airport transfers, a private walking tour of historic Pelourinho and obtain tickets to the Bale Folkloric show. We could not have been more pleased! Everything was as perfect as the lovely hotel. The walking tour guide, Dixon, was more of a professor of Afro Brazilian history and culture - I only wish I took notes. For travelers interested in learning about Afro Brazilian history and culture but want a truly lux place to come back to at night - stay here!

Room Tip: We had a sea view room which was lovely but I imagine all of the rooms are as well appointed as our...

We stayed here in July 2013 for a couple of nights. We arrived on a Tuesday having flown in from Rio and were a bit tired. We were persuaded by Ricardo and Gilles to go out in the evening and enjoy the Olodum drumming. A bit reluctant we managed to get up again after a nap and ventured out into the night. So glad we did - what an extraordinary experience! the drums so loud such great rhythms all the fantastic dancing and energy. We will never forget it. The old town is pretty and the cobbled street and old buildings are very atmospheric. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the main town which you reach by a strange elevator.
Anyway back to the hotel - I cannot fault the owner and the staff really helpful and cultured. The building is a labour of love for the owner and he has worked very hard to achieve a super interior design of warm colours and stylish furniture and object d'art. The only disappointment was I wanted to buy one of the small sculptures and someone beat me to it! Never mind maybe I will get another one on our next visit.

We absolutely loved our stay at Amarelindo. Ideal location right in the heart of Pelourinho.

Beautiful rooms with very comfortable beds and big bathrooms. Request a room with a view of the water. We originally had a room facing the street and were able to upgrade to an oceanview room and it was well worth it.

The owners are French and are very helpful with restaurant recommendations, things to do, etc. The tiny pool is perfect for an afternoon dip and the rooftop bar is a great place to unwind with a caparinha and soak in the fantastic view over the bay.

Breakfasts are huge and delicious, with a variety of juices, pastries, eggs and tropical fruits. A real treat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the bay.

There are so many great things to mention about this hotel.
1. Location - In the middle of a historic city - can walk everywhere
2. The pool - It was so hot in December, that we would come back to the pool deck to relax in the afternoon. The view is stunning and it was just so peaceful
3. THe rooms are a good size and very comfortable. The air conditioning worked well
4. The food - we had Christmas dinner which was unbelievable. We are still talking about that dinner a month later. We decided to eat dinner the next night off the menu and it was very good
5. Breakfast is huge - with juices, fruit, coffee, eggs, breads, etc. I couldn't believe how much food we got and it was very tasty as well
6. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. They are helpful and just a really great group of people
Needless to say, we absolutely loved our stay here.

Room Tip: We were in room 7 and it was very nice. I didn't peak in any others so not sure if they were the...
