The perfect 3 Star experience in a great location

Reviewed 11 january, 2023

Bahiacafe Hotel is a beautifully decorated place, which fits really into the city. Everything is very authentic, the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. We had a room with a French balcony, with distant side view to the sea. A big advantage is that every Taxi- and uber-driver knows BahiaCafe. I especially loved the breakfast - excellent fruit, cakes and very crisp bread selection. The bathrooms are clean and well equipped. The staff is very caring. All in all a very authentic and Salvadorian experience which is to recommend.


Great value, location excellent

Reviewed 18 april, 2022

Very friendly check-in by 3 guys, helpful and chatty and one showed me up to my room. They always gave me good info and tips for the local area. I really liked the style of the bedroom with wooden shutters looking out onto rooftops and being able to hear the local ambient sound. Comfortable bed, tight shower room but perfectly adequate. Breakfast was a good selection imo, breads, meat, eggs, cakes etc, juices, coffee/tea. The lady in the kitchen was really pleasant as well. The dining room looked out onto the square, it was a great way to start the day. The location is literally minutes from the Elevador Lacerda and walking around the immediate area I felt safe even late evening. Ubers were plenty available to go further afield. The hotel entrance was secure with gate and unlocked via your keycard or reception. Would happily stay again if ever I found myself in Salvador.


Great value in great location

Excellent location in the heart of the historic center of Salvador. You can walk (or take the elevator) to most major destinations. Michel and team were also very helpful in coordinating travel to Morro de São Paulo and Boipeba. The rooms are nice with some home-like touches and the breakfast service is a great way to start your day.


Good place but poor facilities

Reviewed 5 december, 2021

Nice place, good location, polite and understanding staff. Breakfast was great. Don't book the spa facilities - Ofuro is sold as a luxury treatment but it's a small wooden tub with cold/ dirty water... bits of mould floating around. W Room was fine, but the shower/toilet was extremely cramped.


They gave me a different room to the one I booked also staff are too young

Reviewed 18 october, 2020

When I first got there I was sort of 'overlooked'. I should mention that there were 2 guys at the front desk. Luckily a young woman came along who was a lot friendlier but she went as soon as she came. I was talking to one of the guys (Canadian-Brazilian guy) and stated that I did not speak much Portuguese (but that my family was Portuguese) then I think I mispronounced something - the name of a food - and he turned to the other guy at the desk and said something to him about me in Portuguese (I think it was 'she can't even say the name of it'. It was really unpleasant for me and just unnecessary. To be honest I should have confronted him about it but i'm guessing he saw I was shy so didn't care. This is really bad customer service. It's not how you treat people. My guess is their age might be a problem so they need to employ people of all ages, both men and women to make it comfortable for every type of guest not just girls that the boys like the looks of. The second issue was with the room. The room was completely different to the one I booked (either on here or through a sister site). The image of the room was a room facing the square with large window shutters but I was given a room at the back with no view at all. There needs to be more communication between this hotel and the site we purchase rooms from because something is getting lost in translation. Onto good points. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was great (and the woman who cooks is lovely - really friendly) - lots of food options. The dining area is cosy and not intimidating. The room looks out onto the square which was fantastic. It's also great if you come back early in the day when no one is around and you can just sit there and look onto the square and soak up the atmosphere. It's also open at night so you can have the same experience. I don't know where the others guests were (out partying? Also I went in May... it won't let me select that in the drop down option) so I was alone most of the time and it was wonderful. There is also a communal games room with books if you want to just chill there. There are wash basins dotted around the hotel (it's a bit of a maze) and the decor is really lovely. It was a nice place to be in. The location is also great being in the centre of the square - you can look out onto it every nigh and see people relaxing (yes it's sort of loud like the guest said but I didn't experience much sound in my room - having been shoved at the back of beyond). Diagonal to the left of the hotel you can get the lift down to the market (can't remember the cost but it's pennies). The back end of the market is where you get the hop on hop off bus although it's not immediately clear. There are some nice shops near the hotel and one or two good places to eat, hop on hop off bus was good too. I spent 2 or 3 days here and that was more than enough. There wasn't really much to do so you need to move a lot more slowly to capture the mood and make the most of it. If I were to visit again I think I would stay in a different area, more relaxing. Vitoria was a nicer area (bit 'English' though) or maybe by the beach. I felt that Salvador was nice for one or two nights or just a day's visit from another area. It's fine to be in a city if there is a lot to do and you feel you can make the most of your time but if you're going to spend most of your time with nothing to do then you might as well be by the beach. I'm saying that so that you can plan better than I did. Lastly the cab driver tried to flog me some driving tours. So you have that to look forward to. You might prefer it as you can go at your own pace.
