This hotel used to be one of the best in the historical centre of Salvador but it seems to have gone down a bit. According to locals, the same goes for the restaurant. Having said that, I found the location great.

I reserved this as a "first stop" after a 26-hour flight odyssey from the US. I could not have been more thrilled!. The bed was comfortable, the pillows absolutely divine and the service exquisite. The hotel restaurant is a local institution. Within a few minutes walk to the central historic portion of Salvador - minus the night noise. Highly recommend.

I have been to the hotel 3 times. The first 2 I had the most wonderful experience. It was a boutique hotel, with very nice food and service and a very modern and unique setting. In one of those situations I organised a meeting for 45 people in the hotel and the management of everything was very well done. This...

Hotel is beautiful being an old convent. Location is great and very close to Pelourinho, the touristy area of Salvador. But the hotel looks old and tired. Pool furniture is broken. Room smelled slightly with mold. I hope the hotel get a remodel soon since it is such an unique and beautiful building.

Very conveniently located for the historical centre of Salvador and where better to stay than in such a wonderful , comfortable and luxurious setting. The converted monestary has charm galore. The rooms had bags of atmosphere and were very comfortable. Only problem is food and bar service which is out sourced so not up to the hotel accommodation or facilities...

Wonderful historical building in a great location, just a few minutes away from the Pelourinho. Friendly and efficient service, rooms large enough. But... it definitely in urgent need of a complete refurbishment as it is all a bit run down.

The building is fantastic, a magical atmosphere, an old silent monastery and magnetic! But .... the hotel facilities are very very bad. Bathrooms leaking water, non-working electrical outlets, minibar EMBARASSING (4 bottles of water and that's all), it is very expensive for the services!!! Breakfast quite good

The atmosphere of the convent is amazing but the facilities are outdated and not up to the standard that the price demands. I can imagine the difficulties in converting a convent to a luxury hotel but old fixtures, moldy bathroom, dusty furniture and bedding is not acceptable in a "luxury hotel". I even found two roaches in my room. I...
