Simple but clean rooms, unfortunately all rooms with a view were occupied when my husband and I stayed at Boqueirao. Great location in upper town, stunning view over the harbor from the terrace. Amazing breakfast with fresh fruit and freshly baked bread every morning, more European styled breakfast than Brazilian but still included lots of cakes. Eggs available upon order.... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights last October and found it to be delightful! Great room near the top facing the harbor with a private balcony. The tiles in the bathroom were beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the best! Fresh baked pastries and breads, fresh fruit, and eggs prepared any way... More

We stayed at Boqueirao last January and this place is not going to be forgotten in our minds for a long time. We simply loved the decor, the staff, the food, everything. The breakfast was simply the best!!! Our room with the yellow patio suited us really well (family of 3) and was very comfortable. My 11old boy thought this... More

It is nice to read that after ten years this nice pousada is still mentioned as a perfect one. In december 2004 we stayed for several days and it looks that it is still the same or even better. Have a nice stay in this beautifull city and take a boat trip to one of the isles. We really will... More

Pro- about a 10min walk to main areas of Pelorinho so at night it was more quiet. We had the street facing room and it was very spacious with a hammock and a fan. Breakfast was varied with different types of cold meats, cheeses, cakes and other pastries. Con- husband is a light sleeper and on the weekend nights the... More

We enjoyed staying at this authentic pousada that is one of the oldest ones in Salvador. It has lots of lounge area where you can relax, it feels like beeing in a big family house. We had a large room with windows to the street side so it was a bit noisy in the evening. Probably it is better to... More

We stayed here in November. The pousada is located in two renovated houses in the old town of Salvador. It is a few minutes from all the amazing sights of this preserved old town yet it is a quiet location. The staff are friendly and helpful and there are high levels of cleanliness. We had no problems with the supply... More

We stayed in this Pousada for a couple of nights and were extremely happy. We were especially pleased with the size of the room (so make sure you book what you want - a rather bigger room or a small cozy room). The Pousada is in a great location in Santo Antonio - it is calm and quiet but really... More

The house itself is beautiful and well decorated. Our room was very spacious, with a balcony and a view on the sea. Wooden floors and a hammoc in the room as well, it's very cozy and decorated with taste. The pousada is perfectly located in the center of the old neighborhood (Pelourinho) and walking distance to the elevator and mercato... More
