Ideally located on the seafront, the Zank is a contemporary boutique hotel with high standards. It is housed in a beautiful mansion with a white facade and dates from the early 19th century. You will find a spa, a panoramic rooftop pool, and an excellent restaurant all at your disposal. The original design of the guest rooms is one of the highlights of the establishment. These very stylish and contemporary rooms are all different from one another, their decor following a specific theme, each time a surprise.

    Location 5.0 /10

    Directly on the seafront, this hotel is a stone's throw from Praia da Pauência. It is on #161 rua Almirante Barroso in the residential district of Rio Vermelho, and 4 mi from the Pelourinho (the historic centre). The airport is 15 mi away. Expect a 30 minute taxi ride for transfers.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The original design of the guest rooms is one of the highlights of the establishment. These very stylish contemporary rooms are all different from one another, their decor following a specific theme, each time a surprise. With a bathtub in the middle of the room or elegant ancient furniture amongst works of art designed by Philippe Stark or Andy Warhol; or even comic strips; they each have their own style! Spacious (27m²) and fitted with parquet flooring, ornate with a pretty rug, they are equipped with a flat screen television (8 channels), a large (free) electronic safe, individual air conditioning, a refrigerated minibar, a telephone, and free wireless Internet access. Room service is available from 9.00am to 11.00pm. However, there is neither a terrace nor a balcony, which won't stop you from enjoying the beautiful view of the beach. The guest rooms are very fashionable: here an elegant wooden desk, there a beautiful silver gilded wardrobe, and then some craft objects, like the small terracotta pitchers, which guests can take home with them. They are also furnished with a king size bed and a bench. The bathrooms, sometimes set up in the middle of the rooms, are equipped with a large fixed shower accessible by a sliding glass door, a bathtub, bath salts, a toilet, a telephone line, hospitality products, bathrobes, a hair dryer (concealed in the wardrobe), havaianas that you can take home, and a double wash basin.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    This superb building with a white facade used to be the home of the Secretary of Tourism. Built in 1907, the hotel holds 18 guest rooms distributed over 6 storeys with a lift. This boutique hotel has been run by the Italian family Zanchet since November 2007. The original design of the guest rooms is one of the highlights of the establishment. These very stylish contemporary rooms are all different from one another, their decor following a specific theme, each time a surprise. Pretty parquet flooring, a wooden staircase, a pond with a waterfall - the Zank certainly doesn't lack character. The spa is on the roof, just like the pool, with a panoramic view of the beach. The pool is a long one (2x9m), surrounded by a wooden terrace and a whirlpool bath. Towels are complimentary and placed directly on the wooden rocking deckchairs, themselves in the shade of white canvas parasols. You will also find some white leather pouffes, some mats, and some chairs, which bring to mind those used by cinema directors! Three showers are at your disposal for rinsing off the pool water, while whites pebble on the floor massage your feet: fantastic! This is a very peaceful place, ideal to have a drink in a chilled-out ambience, and why not for a romantic candlelit dinner?

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    Meals are served in a bright and elegant room with a capacity of 32 guests. It is furnished with units made out of local wood and fitted with pretty floorboards. Brazilian cuisine is served à la carte and washed down with Chilean, Brazilian, Argentinean, Italian, French, but also Portuguese and Lebanese wines. Breakfast is served from 7:00am to 11:00am, and then lunch and dinner are served continuously until 11:00pm. The bar is open from 6:00am to 11:00pm.

    To know
