1.67km from Restaurante SaboresWe were in Salvador a bit on business, a bit for pleasure and we needed to drive into the city a few times, but also had time to go to the northern beaches. This hotel is perfectly located for that - though, one does require access to a car (we had a rental) - just off the major road that leads south towards the airport and Salvador itself and north to places like Arembepe, Guarajuba, Praia do Forte etc.. We stayed on the 10th floor with the window towards the ocean side and acoustics were no problem - quiet sleep for us. The team that works on property is overall very friendly - not sure how much English they speak, but I'm pretty sure they manage. The rooms are functional - nice shower, large safe (which was very useful), easy to operate A/C. Breakfast was plenty and had good local options - I particularly like a local delicacy called "bolinho de estudante" - fried sweet tapioca-based. There is this tall young lady that works there in the mornings who was particularly hospitable. However, there is room for improvement, of course: for one, there aren't enough power outlets in the restaurant, so possibly only one or two people can plug their computers in the wall for an extended breakfast stay doing nomad work or just checking their social media on the internet. Also, the lobby doesn't really have a cool corner - no A/C or just too weak an A/C. Doesn't make for a pleasant working or waiting area in such a hot place as Bahia. The service team was also a bit overtaxed - fortunately, the hotel was full (many travelers who have business activities in Lauro de Freitas, Salvador and Camaçari) and once we asked for a tray to be removed from our room (we actually left in the hallway) at 10 pm and it was still there at 6 am. We also asked for an extra small towel one evening and it was never delivered. Last but not least, we recommend the hotel consider changing their bed clothes in their next investment. Though clean, they looked a bit worn and definitely not as white as when they were bought. I met the GM, David Mascarenhas, and he's a truly hospitable young man whom I'm sure will continue working hard to make this property a continuous winner!
