We stayed for 4 nights during carnival. Room on second floor in the back was comfortable and quiet. Lovely old building that is well maintained. Enjoyed having a shared lounge and terrace to hang out in. Good breakfast. Staff is very helpful in suggesting restaurants and anything else you might ask for,

The staff was TOP-NOTCH. They were so warm, friendly, and helpful... we spent a lot of time talking to them just for fun. The room was quiet, and we slept very peacefully even though there was always a party down the block!! The room on the 2nd floor was clean, lovely, firm beds, hot water all the time. delicious breakfast.... More

Had a huge room on the top floor. Immaculate, beautifully appointed, view of the bay. Walk to heart of Pelourinho is enjoyable and neighborly. Also consider; potential noise from bar across the street, lots of stairs to navigate, wireless availble but no computer access (guess everyone carries their own device now). Overall, a nice home in Salvador.

Pousada Colonial is a lovely character filled building within easy walking distance of the Pelourinho along a nice street with interesting bars and restaurants. The staff spoke English perfectly and were friendly, helpful and efficient. Rooms are basic, but we're clean. Common area is very comfortable and a lovely place to read. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This 300 year old house is beautifully restored, and bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, large and comfortable. Staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgable. Breakfast was simple, fresh and personal with eggs cooked to order. The location is great - a ten minute stroll down the street brings you to the hear of pelhorino but you are far away enough for...

Pousada Colonial is a perfect place to stay in Salvador. Very convenient location, close to the historical center, but not noisy and crowded at all. It's easy to reach most attractions by walk. The stylish design makes the 17th-century old house a cool and beautiful place. It's just like a small museum that you would love to look around to... More

Perfectly furnished, both modern and antique, optimal breakfast, very friendly service - authentic. It is almost unbelievable. We regretted not to have booked for a longer stay. And do not forget to visit the bakery a few meters towards the city center.
