More about Hotel Casa do Amarelindo

A precious jewel in the Pelourinho

by TripAdvisor Member Coolpants

Our eight-day stay at Casa Amarelindo was absolutely marvelous. Every member of the staff was attentive and cheerful. The language barrier is not a problem because everyone in the hotel speaks English.
Casa is a very peaceful and classy boutique hotel in the heart of the historic Bahia. I will recommend it to everyone traveling to Bahia.

it's all true

by TripAdvisor Member rodolfoconejo

What a find! This place must be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at (and I've travelled a lot!), and certainly the best for its price range (at least out of season). Fantastic touches make it a five star experience at three star prices. Rooms are on the small side, but that somehow adds to its charm. Luxurious bathrooms, with state of the art fittings, bath robes etc. Perfect location right in the centre of the old town. Great food. Don't bother looking for anywhere else in Salvador, just book this place before word gets out and the prices triple!

We spent 3 nights in Hotel Casa do Amarelindo as part of a 3 week honeymoon in Brazil and despite the fact that this hotel was one of the cheapest on our stay, I would say it was at least as good as, if not better than those we paid double for elsewhere in Brazil. We stayed in one of the large deluxe rooms (room 7) which was perfectly appointed with the biggest bed I have ever seen in my life! The views from the room over the bay were amazing. The service was perfect - allowing guests to take breakfast any time during the day, anywhere in the hotel (the restaurant, the balcony of your room, the panoramic terrace etc) is a really nice touch and is just one example of how much thought has gone into getting the service right at this hotel. We were made to feel very special on our honeymoon from being picked up by one of the owners at the airport, to the complimentary bottle of champangne on arrival and a daily free caiprinha - a lovely touch! I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to those wishing to visit Salvador - a true gem and excellent value!

Brilliant. Oasis with view.

by TripAdvisor Member Leonora_UK

We stayed at the Casa do Amerelindo two weeks ago for 3 days. Everything was excellent. We had one of the top floor rooms overlooking the bay - a fabulous view over the lower town to the Bay of All Saints, the port and the impressive line of ships out at sea, queueing to dock. Just a step up to the rooftop terrace bar with complementary Caipirinhas - good ones too. Welcoming service, with ready advice about what to see and how to get there. The best thing was the food - breakfasts to die for. We wished we had tried the restaurant before the last night. Not cheap but really good value for the quality - good local produce, perfectly and imaginatively cooked without the overpowering usual Bahia taste of palm oil.A good wine list. We got a room without a reservation at the end of September. The hotel is in the centre of Pelhourinho, immediately off the big square, the Terreiro de Jesus, through Praca do Se from the airport bus stop. Rua do Porto do Carmo is next to the big cafe with the awning and the pousada is 100 yds down on the left. Jane, Somerset UK

Oasis of peace and beauty

by TripAdvisor Member asor

An oasis of peace and beauty. Excellent service, excellent food, nice and comfortable room. I was there from october 5th to 8th.
Back to Europe, I wish I would have stayed longer!

Perfect place in Pelourinho

by TripAdvisor Member Scarletti

We booked this hotel in a great hurry - sudden change of itinerary due to wet weather in the south of Brazil - on the advice of other Tripadvisor members. To be honest, we were suspicious of all the straight 5s it had received but reserved a room for two nights. We ended up staying five: it's everything that everyone says it is. Casa do Amarelindo is elegant and smoothly run by its French owner-managers and the staff are polished yet friendly. Rooms are gorgeous, bathrooms even more so. Don't hesitate: this hotel is located in a fascinating part of Salvador (the Pelourinho) in a carefully and stylishly restored old house. The room rates are more than reasonable and the breakfasts are lovely and healthy. We loved it.

A Safe Haven!

by TripAdvisor Member JonandRayna

First of all, the Hotel Casa do Amarelindo turned out to be the NICEST hotel, by far, of all the places we stayed while traveling in South America. Amenities, cleanliness, and facilities were all very luxurious.

Second, Salvador was not exactly the safest place in the world. Casa do Amarelindo proved to be a safe haven for us. They also provided us with safe reliable transportation to and from the airport.

Finally, we booked our stay via email directly with the hotel and they were very easy to communicate with and responded quickly.

All in all, a great place to stay.

WONDERFUL--stay here!!!

by A TripAdvisor Member

A beautiful little hotel in the midst of the Pelourino - the tourist center of Salvador. I stayed at Casa do Amarelindo for 3 days in a wonderful room. The room was spacious, and absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are also quiet and comfortable, with balcony, air conditioning, flat screen TV, DVD player, mini-bar, and spa bathroom including rain shower and jacuzzi bathtub.

The Casa do Amarelindo has only 10 rooms, and is run by a two french gentlemen, Gilles and Didier who speak English, Portgeuese and French. Breakfast is included and is available all day. Breakfast is served in the dining room, pool area, rooftop terrace or in your room at and is wonderful, with fresh fruit with yogurt, fresh squeezed juice, scrambled eggs, ham, cheese and fresh bread.

They offer lunch and dinner in restaurant in the hotel. I ate dinner there and had a beautiful meal. They offer transportation to and from the airport.

The staff went out of their way to help me with information and directions.

I especially loved the pool. It was so nice to cool off and take a swim. I REALLY really enjoyed the Casa do Amarelindo and HIGHLY recommend it.

Good legs required!

by TripAdvisor Member Hans2

This is indeed a lovely hotel, but you need to book the highest category of rooms to get both a balcony and a view, and anything else is really not worth the bother. Be aware that the hotel is in a pedestrian zone and the nearest a taxi can drop you is 2-300 metres away. This is a long trek on uneven cobblestone for you to drag your luggage. Ideally bring just a backpack, but then this is not really a backpacker type place... you will also find it difficult to move around the hotel if you have any kind of problem walking or climbing stairs, but this is true for the whole Pelhourino area anyway.

A very nice boutique hotel in the best area of salvador

by TripAdvisor Member Julie_Pierre

We stayed there for 3 nights and found the hotel very pleasant and very good value for money. The hotel is very well located, right in the middle of all the action but quiet because they have sound proof window in all rooms.

The bedroom offer huge and comfortable bed as well as large bathroom.

The place is charming and offers all amenities you will expect.

The staff is very friendly and extemely helpful.

Last tip, try the restaurant. The food was the best we got in Salvador
and we tried most of the recommended one from Lonely planet. Again the
price was extremely competitive.

The only reason why this hotel is not yet in travel guide is because they have opened 6 months ago. It will certainly be in most guides by next year.

Cocoon Hotel & Lounge--Carnaval

by JohnnyGlobal

Just wondering....Is the Cocoon Hotel & Lounge conveniently located for Carnaval in Salvador? We don't want to be in the middle of no where.



Re: Cocoon Hotel & Lounge--Carnaval

by bahiana77

It's kind of on the northern side of town. You'd be taking taxis a lot to get to the closest Carnaval circuit in Barra/Ondina. Might be better to look in Porto da Barra or Pelourinho, the two main tourist neighborhoods, if you want to be closer to the main locations of the festivities.

Check the site:
for a list of hotels and other good info on Salvador.

These folks stayed at the Cocoon recently:

Re: Cocoon Hotel & Lounge--Carnaval

by relaxapart


there are 2 major circuitos;
1 compo grande
2 barra -ondina
3 pelourinho

nr 2 is the most tourist one. this because of barra.

please be careful to choise your accomodation. if you choise a hotel directly on the circuito i am sure you will not sleep during the night and day. noise.
Also not to far; going to cost you a fortune on taxi fares ( and it is not wise to walk with a lot of money those days.

if you want we can sent some info about apartments in barra or ondina.
