Well located and safe in the Pelourinho. The staff is very friendly but doesn't speak so much english or spanish, complicated to interact. We had a clean and nice bedroom but unfortunately so humid! The breakfast is nice, you can ask for extra eggs! You can get a taxi drive there and back from airport for 280RS, drive is about... More

I found this little "pousada" in tripadvisor and I was expecting more or less what I got so indeed the previous reviews are spot-on and there's little I can add. The hotel is located just a block away from the San Francisco church in a no-traffic no-through street, near the end of it so in principle it should be quiet... More

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...
