“Best service in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2012

Our stay at studio do carmo was short, but lovely. Francesca and her team are very helpful, attentive to detail and know the best places in town. Francesca even helped us find our next pousada in Bahia, which was amazing. We loved the breakfast, our massive room, and the location of the place, right in the heart of Pelourinho.
Thanks for a great stay!

The rooms are very photogenic and though well proportioned they have a gloomy feel, not as they appear in the pictures. It felt as though everything I touched was sticky and well used but not so well cleaned. Notices abound regarding their 'Rules' and sanctions. We got the feeling they have some undesirable clientele who come to Salvador to party. The street outside can be extremely noisy literally hosting concerts on the steps directly opposite into the night. The hotels has no amenities and you have to eat in your room. The reception, hall and stairwell smells strongly of cooking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel to avoid the noise.

Francesca A, Proprietario at Studio do Carmo Boutique Hotel, responded to this review, 20 August 2012
Dear guests,

Thank you for your valuable opinion, for us is very important.

I would like to emphasize that the downtown of Salvador, as in all cities, is a place by their nature more busy and noisy, simply "live and authentic.” The Bar you mentioned in your comment is the bar Cobreu Hostel, which is in front of us, and has opening hours from 14.00 to 23.00 pm. However Tuesdays are a little different, since it has more people on the street who is talking and dancing because of the Band Jeronimo show that brings the best artists such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, etc. .., in the historic center (every Tuesday from 19:30 to 10:30 live).
Outside the special events on Tuesdays, the streets are quiet and all events are monitored and approved by the residents.

Our guests frequently are more satisfied and even families (couples with and without children), who love to stay here especially for Tuesdays, to learn the culture and people of Bahia: with their music, their food and their sounds (voices, sellers street, and children playing on the staircase).
We consider our location to the colonial architectural wonders. We have it in front of us, and we are also near the authentic and everything that deserves to be visited in Salvador.
Thanks for your visit, Francesca Adamo (owner).

Not a bad place and pretty cheap, staff are helpful and friendly but this place is very noisy. There's a bar opposite which blasts music until fairly late. Would be ok if you want to hit the town but is not practical for families. Much better to head to San Antonio which is close by and has a number of pousadas which are far quieter and nicer area.

What a great experience. Our room faced the Nice Stairs across the street, and enjoyed the Music and the View. Room was clean. Breakfast is brought to your room. Best Location in town.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for one on the Back.
