One of the most beautiful guesthouse in Salvador. And one of the best breakfast we had in Brazil. We had no problem with the safe. A very good choice to get the spirit of peloyrino. The host Arik and his family were helpful.

We and our kids stayed at Pousada des arts. It is located between Sao Antonio Fort and Pelourinho. The pousada is beautiful and colorful with lots of art on the walls and floors. The staff is very nice and helpful. Only drawbacks are that some of the rooms are dark without enough lamps and the water in the shower isn't... More

This is the nice hotel with great rooms (take the seaview) well located to visit the city centre. However I left money in my wallet which was in my backpack. When we came back the evening, I was delightfully surprised to notice that some money disapeared ! Of course i let the owner knows about it ... But nothing Can... More

Very nice rustic atmosphere in the rooms and the lobby, the hotel itself is beautiful and the reception staff were friendly. It was set in the historic old town of salvador. Sadly the visit was ruined by a theft from the hotel safe - I know for a fact that 150USD was stolen as the count was short when I... More

The pousada is located in a beautiful building in a very nice neighbourhood just above the pelourinho. However, the nice location and the arty atmosphere was spoiled by quite incompetent staff. Check-in and check-out were cumbersome and lengthy, we didn't get our room cleaned after the first night, nor the trash bin emptied (which one might argue is quite important... More

I visited the hotel during the World Cup and was very pleased with the choice. The pousada has a relaxed vibe and was a nice place to hang out, with a large comfortable lounge with terrace. The breakfast was good and the staff were excellent. Free wifi. The owner was friendly. The location is excellent, near the old town. Good... More

The pousada is ideally located in a charming and colourful street just 5 min walk from the overcrowded pelourhino but not in the pelorino which makes all the difference! The place is very well decorated, the staff is friendly and helpful and the breakfast is AMAZING!!

Pousada des Artes is a nice Pousada in the historical city center of Salvador. The staff there is very friedndly and helpful - but unfortunately most of the people there speak no English. So - without Portugues I won't go there. The breakfast is middle-class. The pousada itself is very unique and wonderfully decorated. The cleanliness is OK but can... More

We spent our final night of our 2 week honeymoon here and although the building and the rooms are absolutely gorgeous, I thought it was a little overpriced for what it was. It's also a little far out from the main historic centre, so we felt a bit nervous walking home in the dark. But apart from that, it's a... More
