We were in Salvador for a conference, and Hotel Matiz was one of the preferred hotels -- with good reason! Although our Portuguese was limited, the highly professional staff did everything to make our 5 night stay a delight. The food was excellent, both the evening meal and the included cafe da manha. Great selection and very plentiful. Taxis were always at the ready, and tours were quickly arranged.
Take a day trip to Praia do Forte and Projeto Tamar. The half day tour of the old city is wonderful.
I liked the location and ambience of the hotel.
But I didn't like that I had to pay it again even after paying an deposit via Expedia ( It seems that it happened to may people this week in the hotel). So I paid all and I need to wait to receive a receipt that I paid in the hotel by email as they didn't have how to give me in paper and it will take up to 5 days to receive a receipt via email to deal with it some kind of refund. Also the WiFi didn't work on my laptop on both nights I was there ( just on my mobile) but there was no IT person that could help me. Also didn't like the fact that I had 2 single beds which in the end I accepted as there was no other option. Anyhow it is a good location and hotel but maybe some issues didn't give me a good impression.
With its office towers and shopping mall, Iguatemi serves as Salvador's modern commercial center. Major thoroughfares, including the Avenida Antonio Carlos Magalhāes and Avenida Tancredo Neves run through Iguatemi and a bus hub also serves travelers. Find the Edificio Casa do Comércio to see an example of contemporary architecture in this neighborhood.
