With my family we stayed 3 nights in Pousada Colonial in Penedo. The building is an absolute treat: a 19th century colonial style pousada with many original features, wooden clad ceiling, floors, windows. Some other reviewers my have found it run down, but in my opinion it's definitely on the charming end of that. Bathroom, WiFi and Air Con all...

The building, the original architecture, the view and the attentive receptionist Anderson are truly what makes you have a nice stay. But don't expect much more. It can be quite of a good experience, depending on the room. Unfortunately, I've got one with broken windows and poor cleaning. And some painting! The owner seems to care little. During my stay,...

This is NOT a boutique hotel but its' authenticity is so unique who cares that the bathroom is not glamorous, it is spotlessly clean!

This pousada lives up to its name in that it is a colonial building of the 18th century, in a town replete with historic houses and churches. The rooms are enormous with very high (at least 12 feet) ceilings, and some of them have nice views over the Rio Sao Francisco and the lively activities of the waterfront. The staff...
