Casa do Amarelindo
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.
