Guest Testimonial

The Hotels you (Charlie Lockwood) selected were superb in Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil, what a pleasure it has been to stay in the Belmond Hotels, everyone was so helpful, and the Four Seasons in Buenos Aires was equally superb

- TW, London

Casa do Amarelindo is a beautifully restored townhouse amidst the colourful cobbled streets of Salvador's historic Pelourinho district. Behind a colonial archway lie cool terracotta floors, whitewashed walls and tropical courtyards. This charming hotel offers a wonderful respite from the cheerful bustle of the town.

The 10 quiet, simple yet pleasant rooms are decorated in a local Bahia style with a touch of the African influence so characteristic of the region. All have huge beds dressed with high-quality cotton linen, air conditioning and double-glazed French windows, plasma TVs, DVD and CD players. The colonial theme is represented in wrought-iron bedsteads and antique dark-wood furniture.

The roof top terrace is an exceptional vantage point and a great spot for drinks or dinner whilst enjoying panoramic views of this UNESCO World Heritage town.
