    Location is everything. Yes, This pousada may be run down, the rooms maybe small, stairs are difficult to climb, the building look tired, it is noisy all around, but it is one of the best choice to stay in the Old City of Salvador.It is right on Rua Portas do Carmo, one of the busiest streets fill with vendors, restaurants...

    The pousada meson is in an extremely good central location in Pelourinho with easy access to the beach and shops nearby which include a pharmacy and banks which accept international cards (Banco do Brasil) and many bars and restaurants. Pelo is the historic center of Salvador and therefore it is the heart of Salvador, with many tourist attractions nearby. There... More

    We stayed here 6 nights during carnaval and arrived a couple of days before carnaval started. We had a private room (double bed) with private bathroom. Prices during carnaval and world cup are different to normal, we paid $800 REAIS each for the 6 nights. Clean towels provided daily, so is soap and toilet paper. Shower is nice and hot,... More

    We stayed 4 nights white visiting Salvador. The hotel was undergoing renovations and therefore not very welcoming. However the lady was very nice and helpful. The room was clean but looked a little old. Breakfast was good and complete. Overall not Much atmosphere but good for budget travellers.

    Stayed here in sept 2012 for a week. The owner was great, emailed replies very quickly to our reservation request and sent one of her staff to meet us in the square when we arrived at night time. She also took us and some other guests along with her to a street party the following afternoon and made sure we... More

    Pousada Meson is a nice, funny, simple and cheap place and very well located. Close to taxi's and buses and in the middle of Pelourinho. I've been staying here for years, and I feel very welcome and at home. Always interesting people around and very Brazilian. Nice, friendly and relaxed.

    We stayed here for Carnival 2010. The rates go up across Salvador but shop around. The location is good in the heart of the Pelo. But then there are 100`s of cheap places in the Pelo. What got us angry is Brazil is full of lovely people who can`t do enough for you. But then there is Lucia Blanch who... More

    Carnaval is sold as a package deal by the pousadas in Salvador, The packages range from 6 to 10 nights. There is a 50% to 100% required as a prepayment for a confirmed reservation. This pousada adheres to the minmum requirements. We are sorry that this couple had a personality conflict with the owner More

    So, we are in looking for a place for carnival and we found this place. You have to sign up for 7 nights in Salvador during Carnival and the price is competive. But there are MANY options and you can leave it until you arrive in town (but a little risky). Booking in advance is no cheaper and this place... More
