This is a good location for sightseeing in Pelourinho, if you can scale the steep cobblestone streets. There are all sorts of interesting colonial buildings in the neighborhood if you are an architecture buff. Most nights you can hear the blocos practicing their drumming in the distance while you lounge in the swimming pool. Very good breakfast is included in... More

Located Just outside historic centre, but good for kids as there was a big garden And decent sized pool. Also less noise. The room was cramped And very dark. Ask for a room with a view. Breakfast was OK (like all Brazilian places we stayed: ham, roll, cake, fruit, chopped frankfurters, cheese puffs And scrambled egg). By the end of... More

Just a block from the start of Pelorinho. The rooms were small for sharing. The showers were a bit strange, but managed to get hot water most of the time. Its a fine place to stay if you are in Salvador for just a few days.

If you want to be close to the historic area then you need to stay here. We were told all the do and don't straight away of where to go. The staff are great friendly and cheerful and helpful. Great atmosphere. Good breakfast. We were there for the saint Joan festival and it was easy to go see when we... More

The spot of the pousada is really nice, the place you take your breakfast is really nice too... But the humidity in the room was so much that we couldn't sleep, we had all night the air conditioning open (it was over our heads), even the linen was wet!!! It was also too noisy at night. The service was very... More

We stayed at the Pousada de Mangueira for the 2014 World Cup. From the minute I made the reservation online, the manager, Claudio was in touch with me. Claudio was very attentive to my family and I prior to and during our 6 night stay. Location: The Pousada is not in the best of neighborhoods. This is why the title... More

Close to the historic center Pelourinho. It seems very good for the standard within that area. The manager Claudio calmly provides a lot of helpful information about Salvador and safety tips. We contracted 2 private tours recommended by the manager. We specifically requested English or Spanish speaking guides, but it turned out that both guides only spoke Portuguese... No luggage...

I give 9.5 out of 10 (and I´ve never gave such a big score to anywhere else) only because, as I´m travelling alone, the street where is located is not "recomendable" or just need to keep your eyes and ears wide open. Otherwise I´d give a 10. Great location, super attentive and welcoming service, nice clean pool, nice clean rooms,... More

I stayed for a few days in June 2014. The hotel is within walking distance to virtually all the main attractions and shopping malls as well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They can give you lots of advise on where to go depending on your preferences and budget. The manager spoke fluent English and Portuguese. The breakfast was... More

This hotel is nice enough, but unfortunately there was music from the Pelourinho late into the evening, and a lot of noise from nearby construction from before 5 in the morning. In our 3 person room, one of the beds was a folding sofa, which was ridiculously uncomfortable. The night clerk immediately found another mattress, and the staff was generally... More
