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

This was our second stay at Pousada Colonial. We has a good first experience but we were bitterly disappointed this time. When arriving we realised the family room street side we got would be very noisy at night, but we were denied a change to a room on the first floor because it had not been prepared. It was only...

The staff were all extremely friendly, helpful and spoke good English. The Pousada was very clean and the breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit, juice, cakes, bread and eggs cooked to order. The wifi was also very good. There is a sitting room with a veranda on the first floor, with a TV, magazines and a book swap. We had chosen... More

Utterly charming little hotel in the historic Pelourinho district of Salvador. An easy walk to all the main attractions, lovingly decorated and well-restored old building with wooden floors and tasteful furniture. The staff were friendly and the included breakfast was OK - toast, juice, coffee, ham, cheese, an egg fried to order and a selection of pastries. Free wifi too.... 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
