The Casa do Amarelindo is a beautifully restored 19th century colonial townhouse in the heart of the trendy Pelourinho district of Salvador. As you enter through the hotels tall archways into a tranquil reception area, you forget how close you are to the hustle and bustle of Bahian life. The 10 rooms are simply decorated and offer all the modern facilities you would expect from an international hotel such as air conditioning, plasma television, and DVD and CD player. Double glazed French windows offer magnificent views over All Saint's Bay, and some rooms have a private balcony, ideal for watching the world go by. From the fantastic roof top terrace and garden courtyard you can relax by the small pool or enjoy an evening caipirinha from the bar while watching the sunset. The restaurant, located on the ground floor of the townhouse, extends out onto the terrace and the menu offers Bahian specialities and modern cuisine, accompanied by a substantial wine list.
