Charming hotel occupying a colonial building in Salvador's historic centre with high quality accommodation and excellent service.

Casa do Amarelindo is a top choice for visitors to Salvador, embodying all that is most enchanting about colonial-style hotels. Décor is immaculately judged, balancing a sense of history with contemporary comfort and a splash of Brazilian colour.

The French-owned 19th century building is slap bang in the middle of the action in the historic centre known as Pelourinho, with its vibrant jumble of pastel-coloured houses, cobbled streets and lively bars. Once inside, however, you enter a haven of quiet elegance.

There are just ten rooms, each equipped with the full works: air-con, sound-proofed windows, minibar, plasma TV and internet access. Bathrooms come with spacious walk-in showers. Deluxe rooms have views over the bay and truly gigantic beds in which to cocoon yourself after a busy day's exploration.

There is a very good restaurant serving predominantly local cuisine (and perhaps the best passion fruit caipirinhas in Salvador). The excellent breakfast can be served on the main terrace. There is also a bar leading to a pretty little courtyard, gym, and small infinity pool with bay views.

What our clients say

  • “Casa do Amarelindo absolutely outstanding, both in comfort and hospitality. Perfectly located in colonial centre. Enormous breakfasts and enormous bed. Rooftop bar overlooking harbour."

    ML, Hampstead
  • “Casa do Ameralindo is a delightful boutique hotel, also excellently positioned right in the centre of the pelourinho, which celebrated its 4th birthday while we were there. Our room (no. 8) was faultless, with a balcony and a view over the harbour. Of particular note are the friendliness and helpfulness of the reception staff and the excellence of the food in the restaurant. We think the quality of your hotel and your room are very important to your overall enjoyment of a holiday; they are, after all, your temporary home and these three met all our requirements.”

  • "The restaurant in the hotel in Salvador was excellent”

    PBM, Prescot
  • We were allocated a fabulous upper floor room with an incredible view of the bay, the biggest bed we have ever seen and an enormous jacuzzi bath.  The breakfasts have to be seen (and eaten) to be believed - you don't have to order, it just keeps on coming!  The hotel is beautifully and stylishly furnished, and is in a marvellous location.  The staff are willing, efficient and friendly (as are the owners and their beautiful dog!).
