Besides the fact that there is usually only one person at the reception, which means you have to wait alot before even been served, we also had issues with the staff working at this establishment. We were told to not unpack as we were going to be moving rooms to a sea view. We waited for over 3 hours wasted...

The hotel is located outside of the overly crowded neighborhoods with good access to Barra, historic center, shoppings, restaurants and bars. It is overlooking the bay side from both sides of the building. The pool is good although the quality of the service is poor. Great location.

I spent 5 days in Salvador with my family. I honestly have to state it was a nightmare. Unreliable people since we didn't get what we had paid for. I booked (and paid) a suite room 7 months before and when we arrived our room was not available and they gave us a level down one. Room was pretty dirty....

As a business traveller I stayed in this hotel for two nights over a weekend. The room was good with excellent views. But what could be a top class hotel is spoilt by lack of staff and attention to detail. For example: breakfast is chaos with not enough staff as a result plates, cutlery and food all run out and...

This hotel has great views...that's about it. The hotel is old, the reception looks like the computers are from the 1980's, the elevators are rusty, the rooms and old. The breakfast is good, but the window look like they have never been cleaned.
