This hotel is situated in the historical part of Salvador. It is in the middle of a Ladeira de Saude, a steep street, which I used as my gym. The hotel staff is very pleasant and nice. On Dec 25 all the guests were invited to gala dinner for free. We all enjoyed a party and delicious food. Breakfast is... More

although this place is on a steep hill, seniors may find it a little to steep, its worth the climb, 5 min walk down hill and your bang in the center of things, the rooms are spotless, breakfast plentiful and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Can be a little noisy early evening but the noise is music and adds... More

Great pool, comfy beds, a/c, good breakfast buffets and nice dinners, too! The wifi was not quite right in my room, but free internet in front office area helped. This place was just the right distance from Pelourinho to walk to and from (but be warned, VERY steep hills just outside the hotel, and really EVERYWHERE in the center of... More

This is a nice hotel in a good location. Close to the central historical centre without being right in the middle of it. Just get advice on where is safe to walk. Very nice staff, good breakfast, clean rooms. Nice swimming pool although I didn't get the time to take advantage of it. Great view as well.

This is a good pousada with good service and nice stuff. Location - it is just 200 m' from the old city, and 400 m' to the famous square. The pousada is just next to a main road so you feel pretty safe walking around there. The rooms are clean and tidy and the breakfast is nice (nice - no... More

I was picked up from the airport with no qualms inspite of the fact that the airline changed my itinerary and a missing luggage. My pick up was all smiles to see me. Breakfast was the best from local delicacies to delicious drinks. Everyday breakfast was different and very appetizing.The fruits were fresh. The room is cleaned everyday and sheets... More

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.
