This is a bad property in what used to be a great location. Barra in Salvador used to be trendy and upmarket. But no more. These days is a downtrodden area living off its past glories. Not a good place to stay. There are a few restaurants overlooking the beach (which is of course pretty but nowhere near as nice as other beaches in Salvador like Pituba, Rio Vermelho, Itapoa, etc) but nothing to write home about.
This hotel mirrors its surroundings. The lobby is very small. The rooms old, ugly, so dated you feel you are in the 60s or 70s. The breakfast is just awful and served in a tiny space.
I have 2 recommendations. Don't stay in Barra any more if you visit Salvador (a city which is getting poorer and poorer) and if you do, don't stay in this property.
Some said English was an issue. I can't say anything about it as I speak fluent Portuguese. But the staff were nice. The hotel property and the small insignificant joke of a pool were not.More
