The pousada is very well located, at 2 minutes from the beach in the neighborhood of Barra which is quiet, surrounded by a lot of nice restaurants (but not the good place to party). The place is lovely, with a really nice terrace, but a little bit "kitsch", everything is flashy green or lilac and it can be agressive on... More

I recently traveled to Salvador with my family and stayed for several nights at this fantastic Pousada! What an amazing place! Warm hospitality, inviting atmosphere, fantastic breakfast, a true oasis in the city of Salvador! The owners/operators could not have been nicer or more helpful! I would certainly stay again at this fine establishment!

This guest house is a real gem. It has a very good location in Barra near the waterfront and two city beaches where you can bathe with the locals. The surrounding area is rather safe. The tropical garden adds to the nice atmosphere. Breakfast is excellent. The room was simple but had a safe and a small refrigerator - very... More

We were here for Carnival 2015, and it was the right choice. It's is off the parade track enough that the volume of Carnival isn't too much if you want an early night (you can still hear it a bit) and there is no craziness right on the street. The rooms are fine and clean, and the breakfast is good.... More

Room clean and enjoyable breakfast included are a plus for the first day onwards the lack of... More

Dear Palma, we are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our Pousada and very disappointed to be evaluated as "poor". Besides that all our rooms have Air conditioning (Split), ventilator, TV and fridge, they all also have a wardrobe as well as towel supports in the bathrooms. Besides of 2 rooms where the internet signal is... More

We had a recommendation for this place from a friend of a friend so we had quite high expectations. To be fair there was a lot to like. The location is great being close to the Fort at Barra. The staff were really helpful and tried to decipher our English requests. They also helped us with a venue to spend... More

The best breakfast at a Pousada Verde is one of the best- healthy, variety and plentiful. Location is superb, a few minutes walk to the beach and the lighthouse. Superbly clean, well lit, nice colors, and very inviting. Rooms are nice, decor. linens, and showers. Great people to stay with. The owners are well traveled and speaks several languages. Thank...

Been in this hostel for the world cup. We paid dearly for one night (US$ 280.00). Rooms cramped and deteriorating decor. The only good thing is the location. The service is bad, the maids opened the door to clean the room, even with the warning, and knocked on the door the whole time. Would not recommend.

Dear Claudio, thank you very much for your comment about our Hotel, even that we are surprised over your review. Unfortunately during the unique World Cup event the prices of Hotels and Pousadas were in all of Brasil much higher than regulary, even though we were still cheaper than others in the same category (unless you were lucky and booked...

..in the central bairro de barra. For this location the prices are reasonable. Love the staff! Since years they stay friendly and always helpful, the main reason why i come back. The pousada is like an island in the city. Beautiful and clean rooms, with all u need. Good breakfast. I love that place, full of charme, feels like home.... More
