Fantastic Views A review of Hotel Pestana Bahia
This hotel is not a UK 5 star classed hotel - I would say it was more of a 3.5 star! The room was big and comfortable although had been designed in a minimalistic/modern way which meant that storage was a problem with very little space to put away your clothes (unless you hung everything). The carpets were tired and dated and looked in need of a good scrub and the bathroom was in a similar run-down state. Everything worked however these was a terrible smell of damp which I thought was down to the shower curtain (although it looked clean enough). The bath was also very small (tricky when you're tall!).
Apart from that the breakfasts were good and the food we ordered in the bar seemed to be fine - nothing spectacular.
Overall I think this hotel once upon a time was very impressive however it is in dire need of some redecoration as it is starting to look tired and dated.
