The worst thing is, there are ....
During the World Cup, we knew we were going to get gouged, especially when internet problems delayed us booking a room until after the USA-Belgium match was set. Looking at the photos, we figured it was a sort of faded-glory 1970's palace, and expected a bit of dinginess and knew it would be a bit out of the way.
Let's start with the worst part. Every single door on our floor had pry marks near the door handle. And by this i mean massive gouges in the edge of the door near the lock. In fact, if i looked closely, i'd be able to see into my brother and sister-in-law's room, through the hole *left by someone breaking into the room just like they once did every other room on the floor*. Maybe that's a thing to fix sooner than some other things. Some of the outdoor corridors smell like urine. The bartender intended to keep my 50-reais note for three beers, and finally came back with insufficient change from his own wallet. The mirror in my room was broken, and had fallen off the wall. The light switches mostly don't work. The rooms smell bad. There are stains on the walls.
This place should be amazing, it's got a commanding view of the coast and an already-built patio that should be the best place to sit for miles around. And yet it's the sort of place to sleep in your clothes and watch your pockets.
Only kind thing i can say is that their breakfast buffet was actually quite good.
Nevertheless, as i said, there are definitely worse places to stay in Salvador. But don't stay here.
Have some pride in your work, people.

Two similiarly named hotels
I found out about a week before my trip that I had booked the wrong hotel. In Salvador there is the Sol Bahia and then the Bahia Sol. The Bahia Sol is near the Barra neighborhood and is probably the place you are looking to stay. However, since my booking was nonrefundable I went ahead and stayed at the Sol Bahia. It is closer to the airport so the cab fairs will be less. They also allowed me to check in early which was wonderful as I needed some additional sleep before I went to the World Cup match that day. They have shuttle that leaves every couple of hours to take you to the Salvador shopping mall. Which is a very impressive place to spend some time and shop. From there we were able to catch the shuttle to the Fonte Nova stadium and watch the game. Their continental breakfast is pretty good and includes some local Brazilian foods.
However, that's all the good things I can say. If you are an English only speaker than I would advise against staying here because they have no one on their staff that even remotely understands English. I was in town for three days. After the futball match the next day I went down early to setup a tour of the historic district downtown. I had thought everything was arranged and that she told me to come back to the lobby at 3pm to go on the tour. I'm down in the lobby at 3 and at 3:15 - 3:20 I go up to the desk to ask where the tour was. They didn't understand me so I got a guy from Rio who was staying at the hotel to interpret and he said that the tour left at 1pm and that I was never signed up for it. Fortunately I was able on my own to arrange a tour the next day through a private company. But I was furious with the hotel that they didn't get me booked on it and the private tour cost me around 3 times as much as the bus tour would have. (It was worth it though)
Other things. They don't have a safety deposit box in the room. I went down to the front desk at least 4 times asking for a deposit box which the written rules of the hotel said they had. They were never able to provide me with one. So I was constantly worried that anything valuable I left in my room wasn't safe.
The beds are OK. I had a room with two full size beds. One had a ridge in the mattress so I slept on the other.
There is nothing around this hotel you can walk to. If you want to leave you need to get a taxi to go somewhere or hop on the shopping shuttle to go to the mall.
I watched the USA vs. Portugal game in their lobby. They have a bar there and was able to get a Cuba Libre at half time. I went over to the bar to get another drink immediately after the game was over and they had closed for the night. It was a Sunday however, but there were about 20 people in the lobby watching the game. I would have thought they'd stayed open a little later to accommodate guests since there is no where else they can go.
Finally, as I was traveling with a limited wardrobe I asked them to clean 5 pair of underwear, 4 pair of socks, 4 shirts, and some cargo shorts. When they brought the laundry back the bill was 253 Reais. Which translates to $113.00. Looking at my final bill when I left I'm not sure that was what I was finally charged but was very much sticker shock. I did have them expedited because I was only there for 3 days and it was the weekend. However I had the same laundry done in Fortaleza without expediting and it was only around $50.
Overall an OK place to stay. No frills. Secure. But don't expect it to be easy to get anywhere.

DO NOT STAY HERE
To start it is important to say that I have done a lot of travel, and stayed in all manner of accommodation - from tents to 5 star hotels, from poverty class sleeper trains in India to the best Nile cruise...i pre-empt because I have experienced a lot of variances in service and standards and have no problem with that as it is life... so in saying that, and that I have never felt the need to comment on trip advisor previously, I don't make this post lightly.
I was in Salvadore in May 2012 to speak at a conference. I arrived at 11pm after 30+ hrs of travel (accommodation was recommended by the conference organisers) I entered my room..the guy that took my bags up tried to kick start the room lighting and after a few minutes got most of the lights to work.
I was engulfed in the rancid smell of cigarette smoke (I had asked for non smoking room - this apparently was one). I went to the toilet, and it didn't flush - had to lift the cistern lid off and manually raise the plunger - despite asking for this to be repaired about this it wasn't fixed until day 4...
So before you ask... I couldn't change rooms, as it would cause a rate change. Seriously I wish had done it and just copped the difference in price.
The service is unbelievably bad. After a full day at the conference, we went to the bar and waited 30 minutes. Barman finally came in and said they had closed (no signs...only bar at the hotel) - short staffed (he was yacking with 2 females for the 30 minutes that we waited) and we have to order from room service. One colleague went to his room, ordered a bottle of wine. 40 minutes later the same waiter delivered a bottle of wine - not the one we ordered....go figure...
Watch power-points - I left a Macbook adaptor behind I couldn't get it out of the socket and when I tried wiring came out of the wall.
Day and night the noise of people coming and going kept me awake.
The place needs to be bulldozed and rebuilt, and the management need a major overhaul.

Decent place but...
Located in the Pataramas neighborhood, this "in fairly good shape" hotel is situated high on a hill a block or two from the beach. As such, getting to the hotel was a chore by foot as you had to descend and climb a very long and steep driveway when walking to and from the beach. This hotel is NOT located within walking distance of ANYTHING of interest and the beach is not that great either. Thankfully the food was decent, and the place was very clean. The hotel room was off the back where the entrance was and even though on the seconf floor, the noise from outside was intrusive. Overall, not the best place to stay and not the worst either, but can certainly find better places that offer more.
