What I liked:

Aram Yami is absolutely perfect down to every last detail. The hotel was designed and created with such care and is absolutely beautiful. But the best thing about the hotel was the staff. I was traveling alone (single woman) and I felt like I was at home. That the staff were my best buddies. Whenever any of my girlfriends dropped by it was like a little party. The staff and owner were so incredibly kind and helpful. The food was AMAZING. Although they don't have a restaurant, they have an amazing spread for breakfast and will make any eggs or tapiocas you want. And they can make snacks, tea, espressos and juices throughout the day and night.....even midnight snacks. I wanted to personally thank Raul, Enrique, Mauricio and Luis Carlos for being so fun and nice. It was really difficult to go to my second hotel. I can't imagine any staff measuring up to Aram Yami.

The location was great. It is walking distance to the Pelourinho and the immediate neighborhood has the nice feel of an up and coming artist area with some cute bars and shops. I walked by myself to the Pelo without incident, but at night I only walked with others. So, it's kind of like you are in the Pelo, but without all the noise and tourists.

It has a pool, which was usually free of other guests and I enjoyed some sunsets and afternoon swims overlooking the harbor.

I can't imagine there is a better hotel in Salvador. It was so beautiful I did not want to leave.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

Much like Salvador, the city it calls home, Aram Yami is an eclectic mix of colonial style and contemporary accents. Surrounded by the vibrant colors of the historic old town, the hotel is a boutique housed in a 19th-century residence, affording views of the Todos os Santos Bay that bring to mind a beachfront retreat. With only five rooms, guests can look forward to the personalized experience of an upscale bed-and-breakfast, albeit one where much of the décor is given over to Asian art objects, specifically golden Buddhist wall hangings. Somehow, the hotel still manages to feel wholly Brazilian — maybe it’s the multiple swimming pools.

One of those pools is private and located inside the bottom-floor guest room, a two-bedroom master suite that also includes a terrace, making it perfect for two couples or a small family. The other pool is on the roof, where the view of the bay is completely unobstructed — not something that can be taken for granted so close to the old city. Despite the aesthetic slipperiness, the rooms are thoroughly modern, with a proud green streak running through them. Solar energy powers the wi-fi and air-conditioning, while the organic bathroom amenities are derived from Amazonian herbs.

There isn’t a restaurant, but guests should expect a hot breakfast delivered right to their rooms every morning. The lobby bar stays open round the clock; a welcome convenience for guests whose nightcap is late in the evening and those who crave a breakfast cocktail.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

How to get there: Aram Yami Hotel is 28 km from Salvador Airport. Transfers can be arranged for BRL90 for 1-3 guests,and BRL120 for 4-6 guests, per way. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
