Recent guest reviews

My only complaint is about the wi-fi connection, wich practicaly does not work in the rooom. I was on the third floor and I had to go outside my apartment to be connected. That was very uncomfortable.

Beautiful hotel in a quiet and safe neighbourhood in Salvador. We stayed for Easter weekend and spent most of our time at the pool or beach to the left of the hotel. Superb pool bar with a great selection of cocktails. The most amazing sunsets.

do you like spiders and bugs in your room? Hotel staff barely speaks english. the manager is extremely rude. tiny very basic rooms, the toilets are designed so poorly you literally sitting in front of a wall and can barely move. the pool might look nice but once you are in you see the years it wasn't cleaned. just disgusting to be in it. keep out of this hotel if you want to enjoy Salvador.

easy to go to the main local attractions. sea front. very well placed and in a good region of the city. nearby restaurants - walking distance. good breakfast buffet and lunch time. good place to make your company meeting.

Hotel has gone through some well needed maintenance and refurbish and is now again on my top list as a good value for the money. Besides that, a whole new attitude at front desk (no slow lines any more, proactive staff, organized lines), remodeled breakfast area with nice staff too , clean room with new white towels!!! (providing some newer pillows would be interesting, but no big issue).Thumbs up! Well done!!! Will definitely come back!

Bed good quality, room clean. Breakfast and lunch buffet good, a lot of variety. One iron board for the hotel, a little ridiculous. Bar on the lobby should be relocated (paint job on the rooms, will be welcome). Best thing of the hotel: The pool.

I booked the hotel through the Flight centre in london as Brazil don't accept debit cards just credit cards on reservations /bookings . The hotel was extremely clean and elegant design. Good location . Very comfortable room and cleaned well every day. Room service is very slow and no one speaks English to take orders . Also too expensive for the food . I was deliberately charged for food I didn't eat. I asked manager to cancel but failed and he refused to listen to me. The reception staff don't speak English but 1 . No one in the pool area for ordering drinks speaks English . The taxi drivers who are parked outside the hotel don't speak English either . This hotel is not relaxed on trusting or listening to customers on their problems . They also lack hospitality and friendliness. It's a good hotel and facilities are good . Breakfast was great too but the staff are not trained well to look after guests or be able to understand the importance of international not just Brazilian .it fails to be 4 star hotel. More 2.5 or 3 .

I had a pleasant experience on my last stay at Mercure Rio Vermelho. Great welcoming from the Hotel Staff. I would recommend this hotel to anybody I know. Thanks for the great night! The room was specially selected and had some amenities that were exclusive set as per my request! GREAT Night!

The hotel is relatively new, and has good infrastructure for both business and holiday. The location is also very good, close to good restaurants and night life (although it is distance for the most touristic area), and is on the beach. I did not close the windows of my room to sleep, just to enjoy the sound of the sea.

The location is great!!! Rio Vermelho is a beautiful place in Salvador, but I have been in several Mercury in my life, and I can say that this one is bellow of Mercury Standards. Beside it, there is a Ibis, that is cheaper and almost the same thing. I was a bit disappointed ...
