We stayed for one night on a visit to Salvador and it was fabulous. The guesthouse is very clean and our rooms and beds were comfortable. The house itself has an old world charm and elegance and feels very calm and peaceful throughout. It is in the quieter part of Santo Antonio but within a 15 minute walk to the... More

Zelina is available at anytime, give us precious advice and book journey in praia do forte. The room is cute, and calme. The pousada is close to the famous Pelourinho. Near the house is a place with a view on the bay. Breakfast, good, healthy on the patio.

Pousada Baluarte is an excellent option in Salvador. Not only you feel at home but also Zelina helps you with their recommendation of what is going on in the city. The pousada is very well located -just a very short walk to Pelourinho- in a neighborhood plenty of restaurants and local artists. Definitely a good option if you want to... More

I went to Pousada Baluarte with my mother and sister (three adults) for a family vacation. Zelina was a wonderful hostess from the very start, arranging our transportation to and from the airport and providing us with recommendations for site seeing and restaurants among others. The Pousada was incredibly beautiful and all the staff were super friendly and warm. It... More

Zelina was a wonderful hostess right from the very beginning, (responding to my emails promptly and answering all my questions) right up until the end when she organised a safe place for us to leave our bags after check-out (our flight home was very late). The B&B was wonderful, very clean and neat and well serviced. The breakfast each morning... More

Beluarte is an attractive pousada in gorgeous Santo Antonio, a gem of preserved colonial gorgeousness about 2km north of Salvador city centre. It's tiny - just five bedrooms - and has a homely feel with touches of 19th century grandeur such as parquet flooring throughout. There's a good breakfast (lashings of fresh fruit, bread and homebakes) and it's quite and... More

We stayed here during the world cup and had a wonderful room. The rooms are cozy, but clean and the breakfast was plentiful and fresh. It is a short walk to the old city. I cannot comment on the pricing since we paid extra because of our timing, but it was still a reasonable option. Zelina is a wonderful host.... More

Salvador accommodation can be surprisingly on the expensive side so we were happy to find a clean and comfortable pousada with a reasonable price. Located in the historical neighbourhood of Santo Antonio ( about a 15 minute stroll north of the Pelourinho), the house is beautifully restored and tastefully decorated. Our room was compact but just what we needed to... More

I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a cozy, clean, quiet, and 'home-away-from-home' sort of place to rest your head. Zelina is the perfect host. After a chaotic day of traveling, I immediately felt at ease walking through the door of Pousada Baluarte. The night I arrived, she had soft music playing and candles lit, creating an... More

This is my second stay in Pelhourinho & I'd heard about this Pousada from a good friend. I LOVED my stay here. The owners and staff were so gracious and the house itself is beautiful and spotless. I really did feel comfortable - I wish I could live in a house like this. It's in a great location, far enough... More
