Another lodging option with architectural character is the Hotel Catharina Paraguaçu in Rio Vermello, 15 minutes away. A pink, art-filled, 30-room Colonial mansion, it has lovely gardens and rooftop views of the beach.

"There are some large international beachside hotels, but they don’t come close to the character and architectural flavor of the Hotel CATHARINA Paraguaçu, a pink colonial mansion with rooftop views of the Rio Vermelho beach that’s just a taxicab ride away from Pelourinho."

"Part renovated colonial home and part modern addition, Catherina charms with its gorgeous antiques and folk art. The surrounding gardens are lovely… The hotel centers on its oldest structure, whose historical character is only enhanced by its arty elements. Colorful, hand-painted, mismatching tiles line the entry hallway and those of the back wing."

"Because this adaptation of an ancient residence, this hotel is distinguished by good taste, the ambience pleasant, approaching a residential environment, surrounded by bucolic gardens staff are friendly and attentive. The location of the Rio Vermelho, next to Largo de Santana is excellent and close to good leisure options."

Ruskaya - Brazil

It is a lovely colonial building, with quaint decorations and an excellent service. The hotel is located in a very good area, near to the sea, restaurants and shops. The room was large with all facilities and the hotel staff was friendly and every request was immediately dealt with. The view from the roof is fantastic.

The hotel is beautiful, really impressive! The location, in the Rio Vermelho neighborhood, is one of the best possible for those who also want to know the nightlife of Salvador. Safe location, next to Largo da Dinha, very close to Lalá (the best cultural life tip in Salvador!). whoever goes to the Iemanjá Party, this is THE BEST place to stay! The staff is mega friendly!
