We stayed here two nights during the World Cup, the place is beautiful, high ceilings, simple decorations, close to all you want to see in the historical part of town. We stayed in the ground floor room with a street view which lacks a bit of privacy but the very large windows are nice and much better than rooms with... More

We spent a night here during the World Cup. It is a beautiful guest house, it epitomises the old part of Salvador. The staff were very nice and gave us a free upgrade. The breakfast was very good too.

We stayed in this place for one night ( of a three night nonrefundable) reservation during the World Cup. This is located in the old part of town. However, there is NO reason to stay in the old part of town. It's good for sight seeing but you can taxi in and out for a day trip without any problems.... More

My son and I returned from a week in Salvador for the World Cup. Pousada Colonial was our home base for the week. The driver Colonial arranged promptly met us at the airport, and not only was friendly but gave us an enthusiastic guided tour into the city in a mix of Portuguese, Spanish, and some French. Our room on... More

This place was perfect walking distance to the main part of old town. It wasn't directly in the center of it, which was fantastic because we could actually sleep if we wanted to. Easy walk to Pelourinho. The staff was also very helpful, spoke wonderful English and helped us out a lot. The breakfast was also great. Highly recommended if... More

I stayed here with my husband for two nights during the world cup. The property is very cute, with an attractive exterior, hard wood floors throughout and simple, but nice decor. Our room was the double bed + twin right on the street, so there was some noise on Saturday night, but Sunday was fine. Travel size shampoo and conditioner... More

Beautiful old building and generally helpful staff (some more than others!); good breakfast and good location being close to Pelourinho but not in it. Didn't have any problems with safety but generally a good level of awareness and not taking small streets at night etc is recommended (of course). Rooms are obviously old being an old building as is all... More

Stayed with a friend at this amazing Poussada during the World Cup. Location perfect, rooms great but best of all was the helpful and kind nature of everyone working here. Made the stay a pleasure. Location is close to all local areas, breakfast was great, rooms very clean and good size.

We stayed in the large room on the top floor with the double balcony. We were in Salvador for around 10 days to see some World Cup matches and wanted somewhere close to the stadium, close to sights and to have some space during our extended stay. The Pousada Colonial ticked these boxes. It was clean, furnished tastefully and walking... More

My husband and I stayed here in May 2014 for 4 nights. Salvador was our first stop on our trip to Brazil and we picked Pousada Colonial based on reviews on Tripadvisor and because of the proximity to the town centre. We paid for a premium room (as I had read some of the standard rooms did not have windows!).... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada Colonial is located in the beautiful Historic Center of Salvador. Since 2003, the Pousada preserve has offered something unique to experience in Salvador. Removed from modern tourism, the classic style of Brasil is all around. In an old townhouse you can feel the charm and elegance of colonial times. All the while taking advantage of the conveniences of the modern world. Our customers are attracted by the unmatched style and the ease of being located next to Pelourinho, the heart of Salvador and near other cultural and tourist spots. ... more   less
