From the moment Marco picked us up from the airport and took us to his and Nathalie's lovely, clean, welcoming posada, we felt at home. This couple took us under their wings for our month long stay in Brazil, sending us to their friends' posadas on the beach, driving us to bus stops or to the mall to organize our... More

This is a lovely Pousada ( bed & Breakfast) within walking distance of the historic district of Salvador. The owner and host was as warm and helpful as he could be. He helped us park, helped us get tickets to the fantastic dance performance, he upgraded our room to a very large room without us even asking and he got... More

We recently stayed at the Pousada Esmeralda and we loved our stay there. It is a simple and comfortable Pousada a stone throw away from the Pelourinho. It is located in the barrio of San Antonio which is charming and has a relaxed and authentic atmosphere. It offers plenty of good quality and good value restaurants most with great views... More

We stayed three nights at the Pousada. It's a nice little Pousada in the old part of Salvador and a perfect place to discover the city. Everything is more or less in walking distance. The rooms are very nice decorated in an Arabic style. Our room was spacious and quiet - despite the window to the street. We liked it... More

This place is such a find! We loved the owners, Nathalie and Marco, who created a wonderful, friendly atmosphere, took us to the African market, various music events and had great recommendations for places to visit and eat at. Who knew that Salvador would have such good pizza? The breakfast at this pousada is amazing, all people we met here... More

We only stayed here one night, but we loved it! the nicest hosts! They were sooo sweet and helpful and friendly. They picked us up, tuck us the the airport and we went to a lovely great jazz concert with them. The area is a very good location! We can only recommend this place!
