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

There are some pro's and con's to this hotel. Pro: it's very close to the center (5 min walk), the rooms are clean and the people very friendly. The con's: small, very basic rooms and a very poor breakfast! But since it isn't expensive, roughly said you get what you pay for

Good breakfast with brasilian food and other. The best thing is the staff that is always available for any your question and friendly.( other important... More

When we arrived outside this place, just after dark, there was a loud party in full swing at the hotel, around the pool area. Therefore, the front desk clerk could not hear us ringing the bell at the locked gate. Our driver, was getting upset and seemed nervous to be outside the gate with our luggage etc. When we finally...
