Perfect place to stay in the heart of Pelourinho. Very cosy boutique hotel. Very old building with very steep stairs (there is no elevator), but management is doing everything for your comfort stay. There are a hot shower, refrigerator, coffee-maker, air-conditioner in the room. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Understandably the rates during the World Cup are exponentially higher than usual, however more needs to be done and we hope will be done to invest back into maintaining the premises. To start with, there is no hot water (despite the very principal-student type introduction to the facilities and the rules about flushing things down the toilet, leaving the ac... More

I visited Salvador during the world cup with my son and we are both pleased with our choice of the hotel and the location so close to the heart of the Pelourinho. The staff were very friendly and professional. They were always understanding and ready to give advice about where to go and what was safe in Salvador which we... More

I stayed at this hotel during the world cup. The location is excellent, just outside the Pelourinho square so it was an easy walk to the stadium. Because you're right in the middle of all the action, there is a lot of noise in the surrounding area, so if you're looking for a quiet hotel away from it all, this... More

Loved the location and the concerts every tuesday on the steps across the street. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly! The artwork was also an awesome touch all around the hotel. The breakfast was also a wonderful start to the day.

Perfect location, in the quiet part of the Pelourinho and near "less touristic" places, from the Studio Carmo, it's easy to discover different parts of the Salvador realities. The staff is welcoming and helped us a lot to organize our trip to other place than Salvador. We found the room confortable, clean and roomy, choosing one on the street side... More

They call their room suites because they are big (they photograph well). But the bed is uncomfortable with cheap bedding that never seems very clean; the shower is a tepid drizzle; the toilet doesn't flush properly; the toilet paper is the cheap rough stuff you'd get in a basic youth hostel; and it was the only time during two months...

Dear Sir, thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you we not pleased with our facilities during your stay. We would like to mention, though, that your encounter with a cockroach is most likely due to the fact that we recently had our building exterminated, as we do every six months. Unfortunately, after extermination it is normal... More

Best location we could possibly have, and a really cute little place, at the heart of Pelourinho, the old historical town. The B&B is tidy, cosy, friendly and makes you feel you're connected to the town.

The hotel is a little out of the centre of Pelhourino. We stayed there for four nights in the ground floor room which was clean and quiet. The bed was a problem, on three occasions it dropped off its base, and we had to fix it before we could use it. The quality of the staff was varied - from... More

I was happy with my choice in the historic quarter. This posada is one of the many in the restored part of Salvador.The rooms are beautiful with high ceilings and original wooden floors. It is easy to walk around the old city and it is relatively safe.There is an unusually large police presence. My only reservation is about the poor... More
