Bahia Othon Palace Hotel3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Highlights: view from the bedroom on a top floor, swimming pool (and all scenario around it). Location is fine. Lowlights: quality of some services (e.g. No flexibility for a 30-minute earlier check-in), no detailed information on the SalvadorBus, long line for checkout. Fitness room could be better (the view is great, though). Hotel used to be an icon. Price is inviting. All things put together it is a good option for a couple of days in Salvador on a tight budget.
When I booked this hotel, I expected it to be a very good 5-star Resort in Salvador. The location is very good - at Ondina neighborhood - and waterfront with a spectacular ocean view (awesome sunrise and sunset). But the hotel has been a 5-star hotel long time ago. Its entrance is very huge, but makes you feel as you were in a train or a bus station. Lifts don't smell good. Carpet on floors are old fashioned. Rooms are very big, with comfortable beds, bath tube on bathrooms. Although breakfast has plenty of food options, it's not very tasty, it seems like mass production and once there was an event taking place at the hotel, breakfast room was very crowded, noisy, with lines for everything and lacking almost everything as well. We experienced the hotel's restaurant fir dinner: although staff was very kind, the restaurant does not make you feel comfortable and food seemed to be a frozen meal heated in microwave. We ordered a sandwich from Room service that has been the most awful cheeseburger on my entire life! The "bahianas" (waitresses wearing typical clothes) were very kind at breakfast... By the reception there was a lady who was selling tours. We passed by to ask some questions; she answered but with arrogance and with no kindness (she let us talking to ourselves and started taking to another person that showed up!) In my opinion, the hotel is at most a 3-star. And they should be less greedy and invest more updating it and training their star t be more kind and treat customers better. If you are planning going to Salvador think twice in choosing this hotel.
I enjoyed this hotel first because of the price and the size of the rooms. They have an excellent breakfast buffet. The hotel is close to the beach. Easy Check-In and Check-Out. I found a cab driver at the hotel that took me and my friends on an excellent city tour and lunch for a wonderful price.
Great location and ocean view from all rooms. Good service and breakfast. It's a huge hotel and many parts have been renovated. I liked the infrastructure in general, but the room still had a tube TV and needed some updating.
The hotel may need some renovation but it is very pleasant. The room had a view to the ocean, it was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and the staff was really helpful. The swimming pool is really nice and the gym may be small but it has the most important things. I really liked the hotel!
Excellent five-star hotel, I don't need to say anything else or and need. Good food, exelete saw, fantastic swimming pool, cocktals on the edge of the swimming pool, location of first class. also the location with othes bar around, staff of a fantastic education. bar with beautiful room amenities, gym room, transportation to the airport, shops at the hotel, and much more ...
This is a great hotel! We had a superior room with a nice Ocean view. Breakfast is the same everyday but there is alot to choose from. Lunch and dinner ain't special but there are plenty of restaurants nearby. The food ain't great but over all good. The hotel staff are very friendly. I loved this hotel! It's a short walk to barra beach. And if you need to withdrawl money there is a bank across the hotel. One thing I would say it that during check out they should have more staff cus it takes a while.
Reading all the bad reviews here we are actually in shock. This is a very nice hotel with very good staff. Rooms are spacious and clean and ours had sea view. Breakfast is good enough. Lots of choice. And the swimming pool by the ocean is just perfect!
It is an averageto good hotel. Price was very good. The room has an excellent view to the ocean and Barra Lighthouse. The hotel was not so clean. My table was foul of ants. Definitely the hotel needs renovation.
Very good location, easy to get anywhere in Salvador from this hotel, beautiful ocean view, the staff is very helpful and kind. The hotel needs more maintenance and some improvements. It is a very old building. Good breakfast with typical dishes from Bahia.
