Convento do Carmo

Salvador & Bahia

Set in a restored 17th-century convent, Convento do Carmo was constructed in 1586 and boasts outstanding colonial architecture, graceful furniture, and beautiful artwork. It’s located in the charming district of Pelourinho in Salvador, and there are plenty of tourist attractions and local festivities nearby.

This magnificent hotel has elegantly furnished rooms with old-world details and modern comforts. All rooms are divided as they were hundreds of years ago, which has resulted in different sized apartments, but all with a singular decoration and each one is very comfortable.

The Bottino Convento do Carmo Restaurant welcomes you for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Elsewhere, the common areas are just as impressive. There are a stone chapel and arched walkways around the cloister. The hotel also has a swimming pool, a complete library, and business and fitness centers.
