Salvador da Bahia and the Chapada Diamantina: Casa do Amarelindo

Casa do Amarelindo

Casa do Amarelindo is a top choice for visitors to Salvador, embodying all that is most enchanting about boutique colonial 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, ceiling fan, sound-proofed windows, minibar, plasma TV, DVD/CD player, internet access. Bathrooms come with a Jacuzzi tub, and some rooms have views over the bay. All have truly gigantic beds in which to cocoon yourself after a busy day's exploration.

There is a small restaurant serving predominantly local cuisine. The excellent breakfast can be served on the main terrace. There is also a bar leading to a pretty little courtyard, gym, and small rooftop swimming pool with bay views.

What our experts say

This is one of our favourite options in Salvador. The soundproof windows are a Godsend. The pool and terrace bar are great features too. We particularly recommend the deluxe rooms: the bay views are incredible.
