We stayed here for 3 nights while on our honeymoon. There are only 3 good things about this hotel, but as you will see, you don't need much else:
Great location (center of the city), great customer service, AWESOME rooms!
The location is central to everything but not quite in the middle of anything. It's not perfect, but it's definitely great if you are in BA for the first time and want to see a little of everything (which was our situation).
Customer service is incredible! You name it, it's done. The lady at the front desk spent at least 20 mins with us explaining to us the layout of the city, main attractions, looking up online and taking printouts of maps for our special dietary needs (vegetarian), recommending the best places to party, booking shows, etc. They also have Fodor's & Lonely Planet guide books available for guests to borrow. They are super helpful!
Rooms are a class apart! We were on our honeymoon and we got rooms with double jacuzzis, a sauna and a large king bed. It was perfect! The balcony though is quite pointless - it's tiny and overlooks the street - not a very good view.
The only thing inconvenient about this hotel is that their luggage storage is on the first floor and each time a member of the front desk has to go and keep/retrieve it. With only one elevator and our heavy bags, it was quite tedious.
Also, I feel that the hotel can improve upon its cleanliness on the ground floor. It's not unclean by any means, but because it uses light furniture, they sometimes get displaced from their original location and gives an untidy feel to the area.
All in all, 100% recommended hotel! =)
