Historical 5 star hotel ...

This Luxurius hotel is located at the Historic center of Salvador Brazil,3rd largest capital city and oldest one as well... This monastary building was constructed in 1586 and named Convento do Carmo (Carmo's nunnery). The 79 humble cells might still have some austarity to them but in the long run recieved funiture made to size, Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy robes, pillow menu and plasma TVs that in the end, end up killing any austarity left in the place.

Every room in this hotel is diferent from from the other. The most basic room is about US$450,00 per night but the larger suites are a bit more.

I can find few similarities with Mexico's historic side not alot though. It is alot similar to Portugal's colonial aquitecture even because at that time Brazil was still Portugal's colony ...Yeah I love it too...

I've been looking again at the pics and I think my favorite aspects of this hotel are the hallways.
