My boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights in June, the off-season, and had a great experience. The service and care from staff is outstanding. The rooms are comfortable and sleek. The restaurant/bar is high quality. And the Amarelindo is in the heart of the Pelourino. A great option for a stay in Salvador. The only shortcoming we experienced is the shower -- it was lukewarm at best, even after giving it some time.

Room Tip: We stayed on the Bay side and it was quiet. City side may be louder. They have double paned windows so it may not be an issue.

Dear Sharon, thank you very much for choosing our place and sharing your satisfaction regarding your stay. We felt particularly happy and proud reading your very high rating of the service provided by our staff. We´re also glad to know that you appreciated the central location of the hotel, the comfort of your room (we confirm that bayside rooms are absolutely quiet, but also street side ones, thanks to our efficient soundproof windows), as well as the quality of our bar and restaurant. We would like to apologize for the hot water, not as hot as expected; our receptionist may have forgotten to inform at the moment of check-in that the hot water is produced centrally under the swimming pool and may really last some minutes to reach the room, in particular for first users in the morning; a wrong position of the shower control may also be another explanation. All the hotel rooms being supplied by one and unique production point, we can assure that hot water supply was absolutely normal during your stay. Would have it be different, for sure other guests or even ourselves (we live on the premises and share the same hot water) would have noticed.
We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back in a not too distant future, best regards, Didier and Gilles

Stayed at this hotel in luxury room with balcony and sea view.The room was spotless with a huge bed.Bathroom well equiped and very nice shower area.Service was top notch.Breakfast was good and plentifull.
The reason i dont give 5 points is the restaurant.Dinner was quite expensive and in my case not worth that price level.There are better options around for a good meal.
I really enjoyed my stay in Salvador.A vibrant and colourfull city and staying here in middle of the pelourinho you are in middle of all the action.Safety is ok.I didnt feel unsafe at any moment

Room Tip: Go for the de luxe rooms with sea view

Dear guest, thank you very much for choosing our hotel and for posting such a positive review regarding the quality of the room you stayed in and its equipment.
You also pointed out our perfect central location, allowing to visit the main interesting spots just walking distance and very safely; for sure this will be very helpful for all future visitors of Salvador when they´ll have to choose where to stay at for the most enjoyable time in this quite huge city.
We´re also very happy and proud that the service provided by our staff, as well as our famous breakfast, completely met your expectations.
Finally we have to apologize for the so-so experience you had for dinner; rest assured that this is not reflecting at all the quality of our restaurant, as commented in almost all reviews posted by other guests. We´ll try to find out what happened with your meal in order to improve our customers satisfaction.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back very soon in vibrant and colorful Salvador, best regards, Didier and Gilles

This little hotel is located right in the heart of Pelourinho - very cool. Our room was well air conditioned and sound-proofed - we slept well, undisturbed by noise and heat. While the hotel is in a historical building, the rooms and bathrooms were clean and new. The King-sized bed was ridiculously large, more like a double-King. Every single staff member was helpful and friendly. Housekeeping was excellent. The hotel restaurant was of very high quality, and reasonably priced given the quality of the food. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the historical district.

Room Tip: We stayed in Ocean-facing room and found it very comfortable and quiet

Dear Kevin, we highly appreciated your very positive feedback about your stay in our small hotel and we thank you a lot for your kindness. We noticed you highlighted our perfect central location and the quality and comfort of our rooms, in particular the Deluxe ones facing the bay, extremely quiet and, for most of them, offering a huge bed escaped from the tales of The Thousand and One Nights!
We´re very happy and proud that you also gave the highest rating to our restaurant, valuing the quality of the food we serve, for reasonable prices.
Your recommendations are our best rewards and we hope to have the pleasure of your next visit in a short future. Best regards, Didier and Gilles

During my 4 nights stay in Salvador, I stayed 2 nights at this hotel, and 2 nights at Pestana Convento which I also reviewed.

To me Casa do Amarelindo wins hands down! This boutique hotel is small, very personal, cozy, and the rooms are just amazing!

The French owners are on site, and, along with the friendly front desk, will answer all the questions you may have.

There is also an excellent restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Location is fantastic too!

Finally, the pool area is small, but offers a stunning view on the bay.

This is by far the best hotel I stayed in while in the Northeast region of Brazil!

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel after a recommendation from a friend, and we are so happy we did. I arrived a few days early by myself late at night, so I used the hotel's car service, which was super easy and safe. I was greeted at the hotel by Carlos, who showed me around and told me about the area.

Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was absolutely fantastic and included fresh fruit, bread with freshly made jam, eggs, cheese and meat, and a sweet. They also allowed us to eat our breakfast at any time (even when we slept in until noon). The pool is beautiful, but my favorite spot to hang out was the rooftop at night. It provides a gorgeous view of the starts above and the lower city below.

While the hotel was incredible, the staff is what made the experience unforgettable. Louis gave us advice on which shows to go to at night (our favorite was the local Samba night) and set my boyfriend up with a local drum lesson. Carlos helped us with anything we ever needed, and was so kind that we have stayed in touch with him since leaving.

The location of the hotel in unbeatable, and within walking distance of all the museums, restaurants, and churches in the area. There are many cute stores and street vendors around as well.

Overall, this was our favorite hotel in all of our travels through Brazil for five weeks. We cannot wait to go back!
