The hotel is ideally situated to celebrate carnival in Salvador, outside of the overly crowded neighbourshoods such as Barra or the historic centre. It provides easy access to the festivities but still a quite and peacefull surrounding. The hotel is overlooking the bay side from both sides of the building. The pool is good although the quality of the kind staff at the poolbar is poor when it comes to preparing drinks. In general our stay was a big disappointment, we paid a hefty price to stay 4 nights during carnival. The building is run down outside and in, the hallways and bed linnen smell bad. When we had a problem with our toilet overflowing at the middle of the night the front desk did not answer the Phone. When going down to report the incident in person the manager offered no apologies for the incident nor for not answering the Phone earlier although he appeared to be occupied with nothing. A maintenance guy went up a minute later to perform a check. Afterwards no cleaning service was offered, leaving us to clean the bathroom for the night with towels. The bar closes before midnight.
