    Location and kind staff

    Central Location

    Very noisy around the hotel (every day and even more on weekends)

  • Single
    5.4

    Not much; my room was ok (looked out on the pool). They didn't charge for the use of the room security box, which some hotels in Brazil do (What next? Are they going to start charging for the use of the bed?)

    The corridors were only lit on motion senors, which made them a tad foreboding; the staff were not especially friendly; and the location is not the safest after dark (but that's not the hotel's fault, more the socio-economic situation in Salvador generally).

    The ocean view from the room but on the second floor the view is partially blocked by an almond tree and another tree. Free Internet in the room in the lobby is a plus but only 2 out of the 3 computers were working so there was always a wait. Maintenance quick response to make repairs was helpful. When we returned to the room after midnight one night, the air conditioning did not work. The maintenance guy realized the batteries in the remote needed to be which he did right away. The lock on the glass door to the balcony did not work but the maintenance guy responded quickly and cut a piece of wood to prevent the door from sliding open.

    The Hotel is old. The bed is uncomfortable and the towels are worn out. The breakfast the first day was horrible. On the second day it improved but then on the third day they resorted back to the horrible breakfast we had the first day. The area the hotel is located is dirty and a lot of people come there to the public beach and they hang out late at night so it is always like a crazy town. When I booked the hotel on Booked.net the only room available was a triple room but we were a couple so I booked it anyway. We arrived at the hotel at 2 A.M. and the front desk associate asked if there were 3 people. When I replied "no", he said we should speak to the hotel's reservation office when they open to change the room because double rooms with ocean view were going to be available later that day and they were the same price as the triple room I booked. The reservation manager said that is not the case and I will have to make the change on Booked.net. I was able to change from a triple room to an ocean view double room but only after a lengthy discussion with the hotel reservation manager and the new front desk staff and expressing my dissatisfaction with the conflicting information.

    There was a water leak in the first room we stayed at. There are actually 2 buildings in the hotel, prefer to stay in the beach front building where the rooms are bigger and better.

    It was a crowded weekend. Staff was nice, but they just couldn't deal properly with so many people at once. This is clearly management's fault.
