Only one person to take care of the services to the customers
Very beautiful hotel for individual holidaymakers, very friendly staff and very comfortable stylish accommodation, and the breakfast was absolutely the best we ever had. Thanks a lot for the happy holiday
Liked the owner who was very helpful. The area is really spooky.
Very beautiful Design Hotel for individual stay, fantastic breakfast and excellent service. The staff is very friendly. We liked it very much.
Owner collected me from the airport and confirmed he would do this both by text and e mail. Breakfast very good staff nice all round good service. Perfect for me as I arrive late PM and leave Am the next day. Not sure if you want to stay to look at Salvador you may want to stay closer to city, However interesting hotel in a quite location
the owner could not have been more helpful,he picked us up from the airport..dropped us at a restaurant for dinner,picked us up..and the following day,dropped us off at the airport for our flight,at minimal cost. the reason for choosing this hotel, was its proximity to the airport,for our early morning flight the area was a bit remote to restaurants, it reminded me of a ryad in morrocco...wonderful when you get through the door,but difficult to find if you are in a taxi..which we didn,t have to take, as the owner drove us everywhere.The beds could have been better,but all facilities were catered for,and excellent air-con,and ceiling fans
This is one of the wonderful Dream Hotels for individual Tourists, very beautiful ambience and room decoration, here you can really feel the authentic brazilian flair, and I enjoyed the unforgettable fantastic breakfast.
Very beautiful, very different, very amazing ambience, excellent service, the room and all the hotel very clean. This is a very special place. We will come back!
This hotel is one of the most beautiful for individual travellers I have ever seen, ideal located in a real authentic brazilian ambience, close to the airport, close to beautiful beaches, and the service is excellent, fantastic breakfast, friendly personal, many thanks, we will come back!
Rolf, the owner was a 110% star. Nothing was too much trouble.
A uniquely restored historic building that respects very well the original setting without missing a modern edge.
Stunning building with stylish interior design. Decent restaurant with a a good maitre d'. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms a little dark.
Beautiful hotel in the old centre of Salvador, with all the comfort you want. Nice outdoour area for lounging, good bar, nice swimming pool, all set in the beautiful garden of the old convent. The dinner at the restaurant was not that special as one should expect regarding the prices they charge for dinner.
The Convent is really nice Not the hotel but th city of Salvador is not in best conditions
A small hotel with few people, so quiet. Fresh place in a nice area out of center but alive. Not all the staff at the reception is friendly, though all of did their work
Its a historical hotel. Not in a bad location. location and accessebility were diffcult
Friendly staff, good location for Rio Vermelhio bohemian neighborhood, good restaurants around and simple local places to have beer and listen to music in the evening. A little expensive for the level of the hotel.
Good location, well designed and maintained. At last the street viewing rooms are terribly loud.
A dear friend recommended this hotel - it is a beautifully remodeled building reminiscent of traditional colonial homes. The tile work throughout is amazing. It has two small, charming patios, a lovely reception area, and a delightful breakfast room. We stayed in a two-level apartment with handsome wooden stairs and furniture that was quite comfortable. The staff were absolutely marvelous. It's rather far from the historical center of Salvador - but that area can be reached by taxi and would be best enjoyed with a guide or local.
The room was recently renovated, confortable and clean. The breakfast was great. There was a huge variaty of fruits, salad, breads, juices ... The pool was also reasonably good. Internet connection was weak and not stable in the room. The minibar and the restaurant were overpriced.
The staff was friendly. The overall grounds were nice . The air quality in the room was poor. It smelled musty all the time despite turning on AC. Opening the window was a welcomed relief. In addition the room charge was done upon check in which was unusual.
I wasn't really there long enough to say, since I was only one night, but the clerk was very nice and the soaking tub was pleasant. I like to make the room cold and have a blanket, so something more than a sheet for the bed would have been nice.
Big room, however, it was unclear about the equipment of the room when booking, I was expecting a room with a batthub but apparently this was an upgrade At arrival, the hotel was no less than a club with extremely high music until 22:00, don't know about other guests, but I go to hotels to rest, not to party. At request of turning the music down I was completely ignored.
Design hotel. Room looked great. Staff was very nice. 2 blocks away from the beach only. A little far from downtown and the historic center but only a R$20/R$25 taxi ride away (about 15 minutes).
The design of the hotel and the restaurant.
Nothing The chief of the hotel made a party with african drums and it was very load . I made an international flight from frankfurt to salvador and my wife was not able to sleep. Only after 3 am it was possible. The restaurant closed 8:30 pm because of this party. I am surprized because this hotel has 4 stars. I stayed in other hotel with 4 stars and it was a great difference. The breakfast was simple.
Nice staff, comfortable bed.... None to speak of.... a bit more english speaking staff would be helpful but they do their best.
Nice and friendly staff, nice pool and nice options of breakfast. The english skills could have been better for a couple of members of the staff. Further, the breakfast lady didn`t seem to enjoy the early hours very much.
The staff was great! Natalia and Rodrigo helped us book tours and were overall, extremely friendly. The breakfast was delicious.
the staff is polite and gives you all the information and the attention a guest needs.The position is good just close to the "farol" and beaches and restaurants. It's safe and well connected to the center.
Very friendly and accomodating staff, excellent breakfasts There were a couple of issues with the room - just needed a bit of maintenance more than anything, but there were some suspect looking electrics
The situation Our room was "monastic", without any confort details. I think the price was so excesive for this accomodation; may be other rooms are better.
excellent cute small hotel, great and helpful staff, wonderful big and diverse breakfast, very nice layout, hammocks and sofas in the lounge downstairs. we were very happy to stay there and will definitely recommend it. 5 minutes to the beach and 10 to the big shopping centre, lots of local restaurant nearby. Barra is a much better area to stay in Salvador vs. the historical centre. we found the room without the balcony pretty basic, but the bathroom was huge and that compensated fully. great value for money.
the breakfast was awesome, and the personal was really nice. I would recommend it to anyone.
The familiarity Payed internet; the rooms don't have a safe deposit box; the rooms need some maintenance
Close to the beach and a lot of great spots. Amazing staff. Always trying to help and very friendly.
good breakfast, friendly stuff, very good location
location is great, 5 min walk to beach and busses to any locations, very nice and helpfull staff, great breakfast nothing i can think about
The location and ambience of the Hotel Villa Bahia are exceptional. The rooms are large and elegant and one feels as if they are truly living a moment in the past...but with very comfortable ammenities! The staff is multi-lingual and very helpful. I enjoyed the first moment of our stay to the last! Awesome, truly!
Beautiful antique colonial design, very large room (luxury room), staff very helpful. Wireless Internet didn't work in the room because of some kind of special security protocol on the second floor only. Had to go to reception area to connect with a normal protocol. Internet being very important to me, I had to change hotels, since the hotel staff didn't really understand what to do.
extremely helpful front staff was excellent for recommendations on food, tourism, and local events.....specifically, "Jefferson" was amazing! nothing......loved it all and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the historic part of Salvador
Friendly staff, antique type furnishings, excellent location in the most picturesque part of Salvador, delicious breakfast. Good wifi connection. Occasional loud music from outside, although not fault of hotel. Somewhat dim lights in room.
The Hotel Villa Bahia is housed in what was originally two adjoining houses one XVII century the other XVIII century. It is beautifully furnished with antiques and antique copies. It is located in the heart of Pelourinho, the historic disrtic of Salvador and a great starting point for explorations of this remarkable neighborhood so rich with cultural treasures. Irecommend it highly.
Superb location. The best breakfasts of our trip. Lovely bedrooms. Very good restaurant. Really, really recommend it. Nothing
the atmosphere/feeling you get at the hotel - warm bahia style.Nice selection of local furniture/decoration. fyi- the reception staff are French english speaking. Very friendly people . Nice boutique hotel. price premium compared to other hotels
Best Hotel in Bahia! Location No 1! Interior Design No 1! Service and Food No 1!
The restaurant, the reception and the character of the rooms
the view from the hotel room was superb. when you go from your room towards the elevator you have fantastic view and nice relaxing music. the pool staff were great.
There no free wi-fi, as it was notes on booking.com, internet costs 15br+taxes and works awful. All rooms have see view and little balkony. Breakfast is on the top floor with nice view also. Room was comfortable.
view from the hotel room there were some small insects in bathroom and also room furniture. hotel is not an actual 5 stars according to European standards
Great views, nice big room, great value, good location for the city centre and business areas. Corridor carpet on the 20th floor was stained and dirty. Bathroom needed some refurbishment.
The view was great... It is very difficult to have friends visit you at the hotel whether an your suite or by the pool.
Excellent ratio quality/cost. Nice view on the ocean. Good restaurants, and nice spa facilities.
The Bathroom was not clean,the room was not made up when we returned from Citytour at 2 pm.The Account was not right,but staff was aware that there was a problem with the System.There have been Items on the Account what we not had,like Tonicwater,double Food,couvercharge for sitting on the Bar for 1/2 hour.
I liked my wiev from the window its just briliant....
We only stayed overnight, arrived late, left early. Next time around we will stay longer, for sure.
Nice Pool, Location and Facilities Maid would take old towels and not replace. Front Desk translator got a pizza which I paid for through some questionable deal.
It was cheap and close to where I needed to be. Breakfast was really skimpy compared to other hotels I've been to in Brazil. A/C would drip after a little while due to condensation, and at night that would cause it to "drizzle"into the room. There was only one hair drier for the whole hotel!!! The doors make a really loud noise to close, so if you are a light sleeper you might be in for a (bad) surprise.
the beach area was a lot of fun. the hotel is located in a safe area. the people and staff are very nice. great place to stay with kids. the wifi is not good.
The view from the public spaces....panoramic The rooms were shabby to dingy and not very comfortable. The sheets were made of polyester and did not fit the bed; they were unfitted.....by morning one was sleeping on the mattress. The bathrooms were dingy
The price was afforable, Lots of random noise outside door. Lobby smelled musty. Bed was not very comfortable. No extra blanket. Only a thin sheet. Breakfast food average. Employees did not seem over excited. I would not stay there again.
good breakfast not impressive near bus terminal and city busses not in toruistic area convenient to shopping and transport
Very nice decoration, excellent service, very friendly management, a boutique hotel like we like -
charming hotel, friendly hosts,good breakfast, nice restaurants in the neighbourhood rooms are orientated to inner courts with some lack of natural light and privacy (for a small cityhotel acceptable)
I really liked the quality of the bed and the fact that breakfast was served at our room. On top of that the breakfast was excellent. I found it disapppinting that after staying there for 5 nights, we could not get a late checkout. All we could get was 1 hour more and we needed max 3. The hotel seemed quite empty so it did not make a lot of sense to us.
- Beautiful building, the integrated art studio, and the exceptionally helpful staff that must have at least spent an hour and a half on our several queries
Very friendly and helpful front desk. Very nice breakfast served to your room. Central location at the heart of old town. Nothing
The place is a fantastic charming hotel, well situated, in the historic center. The rooms are big and romantic, and the people are really nice and helpful. Breakfast is delicious and has every day another surprise We really enjoyed our stay, and highly recommend this place!
A wonderful botique hotel in Pelorihno. Comes with an excellent breakfast delivered each morning to your door on a tray. Tuesday nights there is a musical festival on the steps right outside the hotel door - our room overlooked this festival.
A very special hotel, with a great helpfull staff, beautiful interior and rich in details. Absolutely a must for the art-loving visitor.
The hotel owners, an extremely friendly Italian couple creates a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast is delicious and has every day another surprise. The location is great and you can easily walk to the center or to the peaceful Santo Antonio. I traveled by myself and certainly recommend the area and the hotel for female single travelers as well as couples. no
I liked both the room, very spacious and cosy, and the warm welcome received upon my arrival. Indeed the location is strategic if you want to visit the city. The only think that I would change is the the bathroom, it was not as big as the room, but for me it was ok.
