Poor service. Ice for the room is not free, must pay R$15.00 ($4.70 USD) to have ice delivered to your room....slow to arrive also. During 3 day stay, room was not cleaned/serviced at all day 2. Had to complain to ensure room was cleaned day 3.

We stayed here for five nights with a group of family and friends. Salvador is very busy over New Year so my advice is to book well in advance otherwise your options are very limited like ours were. As other reviewers have stated this is a hotel with outdated decor, poor customer service( check in took over an hour) and...

The hotel is in a great location and the infrastructure and facilities are ok. Some rooms are been upgraded but still lagging behind. Rooms furniture is 10+ years old, some rooms with balcony at the first floor are under utilized, drinks and food at the pool are almost impossible during the holidays. Mini bar is water only. Breakfast area and...

I have been recently at Vila Galé Salvador during a medical congress. The hotel is reasonably well located, near Salvador Convention Centre: this is the best we can say. The room shows its years... the bathroom hasn´t the best conditions. Breakfast is very poor for what would be expected in a 4-star hotel. The swimming pool is very small and...

The hotel is old-fashioned but it has style. The bedroom is big enough and and very convenient . The swimming pool is good but the sauna is in bad conditions. The breakfast is very diverse and delicious.

Great looking hotel. Spectacular sea views. Staff pleasant, but spoke No english, except for one staffer who the sole english speaker for the hotel and was available during the day mostly. thankfully I picked up some Portuguese before I traveled which helped out a lot.

The room was pleasant with a great view over the swimming pool to the ocean and things got much better once the toilet had been unblocked! In the morning the breakfast was more than adequate, however the selection of drinks at the bar in the evening, was limited.

Yes the hotel was older with a slow draining sink and some rust. The pool is smallish but nice. I found the staff to be very helpful (I only speak English). The direct access to a nearby beach was there but staff warned me not to try going there (thieves). The room (sea view is a necessity) was large with...

It's an old but refurbished hotel with good service, central location, spacious room and great breakfast. The pool is in front of the beach, but unfortunately due to safety reasons we don't have access to the ocean. I still recommend staying there.
