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

Brilliant service in quiet hotel with good clean pool. Child friendly. Extremely helpful staff including Claudio who calmly fixes plans and sorts problems. Tricky to drive to and from but he will print map. Good value.

Location is good if you want to spend your time in the historical center (Pelourinho), although keep in mind you are in close proximity to streets were you should not be walking (especially at nighttime). Ask the hotel staff for a map of the Pelourinho, they'll give you a hint of where to not go. The pousada garden and pool... More

Once we arrived, we were very disappointed. This ranks below Motel 6. We traveled around Brazil and stayed in various hotels, this one was definitely the worst. The room was EXTREMELY small with bugs everywhere. It was damp in the safe so it got our passports wet. It is located in an unsafe part of town and not near anything... More
