Casa do Amarelindo
Sat on a picturesque cobblestoned street, the Casa do Amarelindo is a beautifully restored 19th-century colonial townhouse in the Pelourinho.
Located in the heart of old town, the Pelourinho is the place to be; declared a UNESCO world heritage site, it is famed for its colourful houses, beautiful baroque churches, winding alleys and continuous music and dance. Cool terracotta floors, white-washed walls and tropical courtyards provide a soothing ambience of calm amidst all the action of the city.
The property’s 10 spacious rooms, set over three floors, are uniquely decorated with local furnishings and feature huge bathrooms; all are light, sunny and have air-conditioning. It is the only hotel in the Pelourinho with an inviting rooftop pool with views over the picturesque All Saints Bay (Baia de Todos os Santos), perfect for an afternoon dip or to admire the panoramic views out to sea as the sun sets.
Enjoy tapas and drinks served on the roof terrace before dining at the Pelo Bistro, the hotel’s restaurant. Hearty dishes are served, a mixture of Bahian specialities with an extensive wine list to choose from.
