We received a free upgrade to the penthouse room. This was a big room, with really good views on both sides of the hotel. Really cool. The room wasnt really clean and was a bit outdated. Too bad there was only one person At the reception who spoke english. Which made it hard to communicate. We got breakfast in our... More

What a disastrous end to our wonderful holiday. We arrived late evening and upon arrival was told there was no restaurant at all and breakfast was served in the rooms. We went to our rooms (2 standard and one superior). I had booked a single and I would call it a family hostel standard room. The main room had 2... More

We had a large room overlooking a noisy highway. The bed was comfortable. The bed post was filthy. The curtains and floor were filthy. The shower stall does not have a door so when you take a shower the bathroom floor gets all wet. We had a gecko, a cockroach and a centepede as visitors in our hotel room. It... More

Interesting location and staff in the rapidly upcoming Pelourinho ('historic') district. Not for the inexperienced traveller - the owner warns you of all the streets you should not enter at all, or not after dark. This really means taxis everywhere, except 10-6PM. The street side rooms could be quiet except for revellers, ones overlooking the bay has motorway noise except... More

Only a wall to look at no view whatsoever! I cannot believe this is a standard room. More like a hostel of less stars. Only a cold water tap in the wash hand basin. Never ever stayed in a hotel like this. The receptionist could not authorise changing to another room. We are the only guests staying at the moment.... More

We arrived at the hotel late at night and was met by a very happy chap on reception! He carried our very heavy suitcases to the room for us, no mean feat on a winding staircase! He showed us to our room and told us to call him anytime if we needed anything, he was very helpful. The room was... More

We stayed here in the last week of May (before the world cup rush). We were a family of three with a 1.5 year toddler. I would recommend the hotel as a safe, clean and comfortable place to stay with very friendly and knowledgeable staff; however, I wouldn't recommend it if you have trouble with stairs or are travelling with...

We went to Salvador for the FIFA World Cup and even though the area the hotel is at isn't fancy or developed, it was still very pretty in a historical sense. The hotel itself doesn't seem like much from outside but inside is pretty nice for the price you pay. The exceptional thing however is the staff. Everyone is willing... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A hospedagem no Solar do Carmo tem um estilo unico . Primeiro, por sua arquitetura que preservou as caracteristicas do passado acrescentando um projeto arquitetonico moderno e original. Um exemplo e a escada helicoidal metalica contrastando com as paredes em tijolos antigos aparentes. O aconchego do hotel tambem se deve muito a sua estrutura fisica. Outra forte marca do Solar do Carmo e a vista espetacular de 180 graus da Baia de Todos os Santos. O deck-bar, onde e servido o cafe da manha e onde funciona o restaurante e um verdadeiro mirante para essa mistica baia. Ao final da tarde acontece o happy hour com por do sol . Uma boa hora para aproveitar a hidromassagem do pequeno spa para relaxar depois de um dia repleto de passeios e bons momentos. O hotel localiza-se na Rua Direita de Santo Antonio, famosa por cultivar as raizes historicas da cidade, tanto culturalmente, atraves de manifestacoes religiosas, festas e eventos, como arquitetonicamente, com casaroes e sobrados com cerca de 300 anos de idade. Antiga residencia de familias nobres e funcionarios publicos. ... more   less

“The best rooms are 401 and 402 (we ended up staying in both, as we stayed on longer than expected and 401 was booked out). There is no lift, but the walk up 3 flights is more than made up for by the view and the quiet! Also, 402 has it's own little private balcony to sunbathe on!”
