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

It is a lie, Nobody roobed you in your room. There are cameras to prove it, the only key stayed with you. On the way in you booked an airport transportation with us, with fixed price and refused to pay it when you arrive.... You said you spent nothing in Salvador and told me you went to the Bambara club,... More

Nice comfortable place with welcoming staff. Comprehensive breakfast. Great views of the coast and shipping that comes and goes. It's worth it just for these views. I re-confirmed our airport pick-up transfer a couple of days before arrival but still waited 45 min in the airport arrivals area for the guy to turn up - the nice ladies at tourist... More

As many have said, the location, decor and charm of this pousada can't be beat in Pelhourino. It is located in the centre of the action, but enough off that path that you don't have Olodum banging away right in front of your window. The rooms are rustic and colourful and if you appreciate naif art, then you will find... More

We enjoyed very much our stay in Pousada des Arts. The place is beautiful, tastefully decorated and very well located, very close to the Pelourinho. Eric, the owner, is a great source of information and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are charming and the decoration is very original, colorful and transmits you a lot of the Bahian spirit....

This house really stands out from others with its beauty and colours! We were impressed by the interior when we arrived as well as with the service. Nicely decorated all over! Beautiful terrace and day room where one can relax and enjoy the bay view or watch tv since the rooms don't have one. Our room on the top floor... More

Beautifully decorated place with a warm welcome, stunning views, feast for breakfast and placed just on the edge of the Peilourinho which gives good access without the noise. We arrived on a festival day and the place was buzzing. Good experience and a demonstration of how the Salvadorians celebrate carnival in a more demotic way than the Cariocas.

Thank you very much for your nice review. San Jhon Festival is very important in North east Brazil and very bad known. This year it was very good in the historical center. More
