Posada Colonial is a very charming small hotel in the "Pelourinho" the first neighborhood established in Salvador Bahia. The hotel was a colonial house turned into a colorful hotel. The room was nice and clean, and the bed quite comfortable. The three propale at the front desk we met were very efficient and friendly, always giving us a big smile... More

The welcome in this guest house/pousada is second to none. The staff made sure we knew where everything was both in the accommodation and in Salvador itself. They recommended places to go and restaurants etc. This wasn't a normal check in of here's the key and get on with it! As we were at the end of our 3 week... More

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
