Enjoy the best of both worlds-beach and city-when you stay at Hotel Bahia Do Sol. Built in 1974 and located in an upscale neighborhood, this affordably priced hotel is just 1.6 km (1 mi) from Porto da Barra Beach. One of Salvador's loveliest beaches, Porto da Barra is famed for its calm waters and glorious sunsets. You'll also be 2.5 km (1.5 mi) from Farol da Barra Beach, with its picture-perfect lighthouse, colonial fortress, and ocean surf. The popular Pelourinho district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is 3.3 km (2 mi) north of the hotel. Stroll Pelourinho's narrow cobblestone streets, admire the restored colonial architecture, and browse the artisan shops. Be sure to visit Igreja Sao Francisco, a Baroque church with magnificent gilded interiors. Evenings, Pelourinho sizzles with Afro-Brazilian music and dance.
The hotel's immediate neighborhood offers plenty to see and do-the Museu de Arte da Bahia and several major theaters are within a 5-minute walk. Cafés, bars, and boutiques are also within easy reach.
At day's end, unwind with dinner and drinks at the Cafe Gourmet, featuring Bahian and international favorites. Room service is available until 10:00 PM.

Business amenities consist of a business center, exhibit space, and audio-visual equipment. In addition, the hotel provides onsite guest parking (surcharge) and a smoke-free environment.
After a day at the beach or a night on the town, your air-conditioned guestroom is a welcome retreat. Decorated in a contemporary style, all rooms include 21-inch cable TV, minibars, and in-room safes. All rooms feature private bathrooms with hair dryers and complimentary toiletries.
