Close to a nice beach. Hotel has unusual and intersting design, comfortable rooms. Extremely helpful and friendly english speaking staff. Things to keep in mind: - not very close to histric centre if this is where you want to be and - get an official taxi from the airport (it is R38) instead of R75 charged by the hotel.
We were very impressed with the hospitality and service of the staff. The hotel was very cozy, breakfast was delicious and the room was comfortable. Due to the location of the hotel, it was very noisy but this even proved authentic in our cultural immersion of Brazil! We would definitely recommend this hotel!

"Charming staff but this hotel has nothing to offer"
Paid 50% in advance at that period but obliged to pay full stay (another 50%) upon arrival very tired from Europe
Air conditioning never worked 1st night, had to change room (and level) for the 2nd night
Used to be a cheap love hotel some way (glass in the ceiling, false leather mattress and pillows !)
Changed towels only fior the 4th and last night
This business should not be listed as a hotel, as it is a hostel with substandard conditions. We paid for a "Superior Triple Room" with a balcony, and were assigned a room that only had 2 uncomfortable beds and no balcony to speak of. When we tried to open the curtains, the curtain rod came crashing down, and the window flew open. The only way we could secure it shut was to use a strap from our own suitcases. Had we not done this, we would not have felt safe sleeping there at night or leaving our belongings in the room during the day. Our toilet seat came off the toilet entirely, and the toilet would not flush until we went across the street and purchased a bucket, which we had to fill with water from the shower. The power went out multiple times, so we were forced to take freezing cold showers, and the shower always overflowed. The quality and quantity of the towels were very poor, and the linens did not seem clean. There were no hangers available to hang our things. They advertise WiFi, but the connection was so weak that we could not use it. The most telling aspect of this visit was the fact that we saw an employee in the lobby wearing a "Hostel Porto Salvador" shirt. Exactly. This is not a hotel. It is an overpriced hostel.
