“The gem of Salvador, great location, yummy food, clean and comfortable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

Pousada Boqueirao is a wonderfully warm and charming colonial B&B with a gallery like feel, just up a small hill in magical Pelourinho. The location is perfect for walking and discovering the sites, restaurants and shops, although I do not recommend walking at night on ones own. The breakfasts were a master creation of delicious indulgence to awaken your taste buds... I am still salivating! a must stay while in Salvador!

I have probably stayed here 10 times both for business and pleasure. I've stayed in most of the rooms and keep coming back, preferring it to more convenient business hotels (Pestana, Othon). The view is unique, the breakfast too, rooms comfortable, not luxurious but overall a fabulous place to rest, escape from the bustle of the city and wake up to a delicious breakfast and spectacular views.

This is an excellent hostel, which might give you a bad impression from the outside (at least that's what I thought at first). As soon as you enter, a huge area awaits you, plus the staff are so well trained (bet due to the owners being Italian!) Restaurant / Lounge area is situated port / sea view. Quiet neighborhood, in Pelourinho area, within walking distance to bars & restaurants.

Food is superb!

The Pousada is located 20min walk from the old town center Pelhourino. Pelhhourino is a tourist area, but quite clean and great for sighseeing. As long we walked on the main streets in Pelhourino, we felt safe, even during the night.
Staff at reception speaks basic english. The breakfast is perfect. Order a room with sea view then you get a nice view to the harbour. The rooms ihave colonial style design. I believe there is no better Pousada near Pelhourino.

We loooooved Pousada do Boqueirao. After trekking around in Lencois and a long bus ride to Salvador, Pousada Boqueirao was an oasis of elegance and charm. We stayed in the big colonial room—it was huge! Very nice wood furniture, view of the street, big bed, indoor hammock ... it had a shared bathroom down the hall, but the bathroom was very nice, large, and clean and I didn't ever see another guest or have to wait. The owner and staff were very helpful, it felt secure from the street with a buzz-in front door. For breakfast there was a huge spread and we dined on the outdoor patio overlooking the city and bay. Gorgeous.

The proprietress Fernanda and her staff made our stay comfortable, beautiful, easy and tasty. Both Fernanda and her brother Nino went out of their way to guide us, make reservations at other locales, support our business needs. The staff were always ultra helpful and filled with good will. Fernanda's decor is chic but steeped in traditional style.
We don't want to go home!!!
I couldn't have imagined a better experience - and I am VERY picky! ;-)
