I stayed here with my husband and young son. We had a nice big room that overlooked the harbor. We liked the location as its a scenic 10 minute walk from the main tourist square, with some good restaurants and bars in between. The staff was very nice and the manager and her assistant were super helpful with arranging travel... More

If you want to experience Salvador like a local this Pousada is way to go. Dian and Sandro are absolutely the best host along with the staff. Great local restaurants nearby. Fantastic cost and value. Even though the pousada is a small one from the outside, inside it is more than large enough. Several really great restaurants within walking distance... More

We stayed in this charming small inn for two nights. It is located at one end of the historical town. It is in an area that is still being gentrified which means that there are still some rundown old houses around. The hotel is in a beautiful building. But the room we stayed in has no window and is really... More

Beautiful conversion of a colonial house. Rooms on the small side, one definitely needs to upgrade in order to get some decent space. Rooms oriented towards the main street are really noisy, especially when the bar in front is open. It is not that close to the Pelourinho, but if you fancy edgy and slippery cobblestone roads it is not... More

Stayed here for one night on our way back from Boipeba to Rio. The pousada is well situated within walking distance to the historical area Pelourinho and the house looks very fine from the outside. We got room no. 6 with a balcony facing the backside - a terrible view to slum. There was only a cieling lamp and with... More
