We enjoyed our 3 night stay very much. The location in the old town is perfect for exploring. We loved the colourful street view from our top floor room and didn't find it noisy at all. There is another lovely view from the breakfast room terrace at the back of the property. Also a big thank you to the owners... More

I liked the place as it is perfectly located in the old town, but is is somewhat remote and not safe after dark. After my booking thet still managed to raise the price by 40 euro per night because of the soccer conferedations cup, but this was a triack as the place was >50% empty. For that reason I truly...

The reservation of this cliente was made through his agency! Before confirm, he knew the category of your room ( street view) and the amount they would pay. We have only 12 rooms ( 05 rooms street view and 07 bay view). We don't have rooms better or worst. All offer the same quality! The the bed linen is new... More

When the car dropped us off in a little street I was unsure of the location but when we travelled on the super "fast lift" to our room and opened the doors to the balcony we knew we had chosen the right place. And in the morning it just got better breakfast is taken outside on the balcony at the... More

Location: We had no car, we either walked or used the bus. The pousada (little Hotel) is located Between 10 to 15 minutes from the Pelourinho, ups and downs, cobblestones, small or non existent side walks, not a big deal for health and young people, but it was a problem for my 71 years old mother with a weak knee....

This Pousada is very nice. The staff is very friendly. The Pousada is located in the historic centre of Salvador. The neighbourhood requires an iron door that has to be locked all the time. We wanted to do some sightseeing of the historic centre, but that was a party going on. A local couple advised us not to merge in... More

We stayed here after spending 10 days moving up the coast from Rio, and after some of the places we stayed along the way, this was like an oasis in the desert! We had a seaview room which was well worth the extra money, and the terrace was large and lovely. The entire facility is very well done, modern in... More

We spent 2 nights at the Pousada and it thought it was very good. Very close to the Pelorinho (although up and down a couple of steep roads) and very nicely decorated. When we arrived we weren't sure about the location as we arrived at night. The next morning we were happily surprised when we realised that it was very... More

Fantastic posada in the Pelorinho (old town) in Salvador. Stayed here for five days in Feb 2012 and really enjoyed the stay. Staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful. Rooms are great, worth upgrading to a room with a sea view and balcony if you can. Location is about 5 mins walk from the main square (slightly steep hills). Another... More
