When i booked this place Aquarela Do Brazil, it was advertised as a hotel, which it is not, far from it, more like something in between a bed and breakfast and a hostel. They have a list of rules stuck on the back of the door, see pics. Located near the main square of Pelourinho in Salvador (I would avoid... More

Thanks for sharing your experience, its very important to us to know what´s good and whats not so good about our place and service. Your booking was not made directly with us. We provide full and truly information to our suppliers, but unfortunately we cannot grant that the third parties envolved are always working as they are supposed to be.... More

Comfortable spot, steps from the main square in Pelourinho. I really appreciated Cesar and Edina's warm hospitality. Don't miss the record shop across the street, and Geronimo's performance nearby on Tuesdays. Simple rooms without A/C, but the breeze in the evening and a fan kept the room comfortable.

Hello! Thanks for staying with us and sharing! It’s a pleasure for us to have such a great opportunity of working with well-being of many good people coming from so different places. We always try to provide useful information when we see the person wants or need it. On the future we may be installing A/C, but its a long... More

The Pousada is very well located if you want to be located in the old part of Salvador. It's a couple of hundred yards from the Pelourinho square and close to everything you would want to see in this fairly compact part of the city. The people who run it are very friendly, very helpful and easy to communicate with... More

Hello! Thanks for sharing your experience with us and the community. Sorry for the salty eggs! I had it too, thought it was just an error on mine, but we have warned Ninha again to avoid excess on salt and sugar. (By the way our juices are made from the fruit, with no sugar added). Waiting for you next year!... More

This B & B is right in the heart of Pelourinho and an easy walk (wear good shoes as it is all cobblestones) to all the attractions. Edina and Caesar were good and helpful hosts. Caesar spoke English, Edina spoke Spanish and French or we often used the translator on the PC which worked quite well. Our room was basic... More

A really comfortable place in the heart of Pelo with caring owners and very reasonable rates, which are hard to find in this area if you wish to have a certain standard. The beds are new and very comfy, room is clean, tv and fan available; though the decoration is quite simple, the room feels cozy. You can close the... More

We were lucky, we met the owner who was very kind. Eventhough they were renewing the hotel, they received us and treated us family. Delicious breakfast and located in the center of Pelourinho. The street at night was amazing. Im definitevely coming back.
