Very charming decor, friend and very helpful staff, very nice local breakfast, nice and comfortable room... nothing fancy, but with good taste and with the old original decor in this beautiful very old house. It is well located... very close... More

The hotel is nice, even though it's a bit run down. Nice room and bathroom, but problems with the lock, the safe and the shower. The owner is friendly, but he wouldn't fix my reservation problem (got charged for 2 even though I am alone). He said to take it with Bookings.com. Finally, as mentioned by other reviewers, the staff... More

Our room at this pousada was lovely and had a beautiful rooftop terrace! The breakfast was good and the location extremely central! But our stay was made extra special by Jucimar at reception, who was so helpful, kind and generous and helped us enjoy Salvador at its best! :) Would definitely recommend!

We visited Brazil for the end of the World Cup (for the atmosphere). Travelled to a few places on the coast, including Copacabana, Rio (disapointing) ended up in Bahia, Salvador. So glad we found this place. Jucimar on reception was brilliant and the owner was lovely! The pousada was quirky, clean and lovely breakfast! Everything you need.

Best location in Pelourinho, charming interior, nice rooms and kind people. If you are looking for the best guide in town, ask for Jucimar. Thumbs up! Have been there several times and are looking forward to come back. Best cost/benefit-ratio ...

You just have to stay here during your visit in Salvador. Jucimar (the guy at the reception) knows all the right contacts and all the right places to go. Don't hesitate to ask him about anything you are wondering.

The pousada (bed & breakfast) is in the center of Pelourinho e everything happens around there. View from my room was breathtaking... The guy on front desk (his name is Jucimar) is awesome and has lots of good tips about what to do in Salvador. I am looking foward to go there again next summer...

We were really looking forward to our trip to Salvador, however our visit was overshadowed by money being stolen from our room when we went out sightseeing for the day. This was after calling in advance to check our room had a safe (which we found was broken on arrival) and explicitly stating that we didn't want anyone to enter... More

For those who want to feel the atmosphere of an old-fashioned house in Pelourinho, this hotel is a find. It consists of a 3 story buildings in the central part of Pelourinho. The top floors are accessed by stairs only (no elevator). The rooms are clean, white washed, and simply furnished with some antique furniture. The breakfast is better than... More
