Situated in Barra, one of the best areas of Salvador, where you can find some of the nicest beaches of the city. Just a 3-minute walk to the first beach, 5 minutes to the "harbour of Barra" and located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. A tropical garden with exotic flowers and plants and a variety of song birds give you the impression of staying in a green oasis in the heart of Salvador.

Our first visit to Salvador where we stayed a week in Papaya Verde. We had the best time. The hotel is in a quiet street and close to some excellent beaches, restaurants and bars. All great places to hang out during day or evenings. The Pousada has a beautiful garden and terras where you can chill in one of the hammocks. A very relaxing atmosphere and super friendly staff, they gave us some good advice on how to enjoy the best of Salvador. Our room had a small balcony, very comfortable beds and airco. It was perfect for our stay and very good value for money. Breakfast included i.a. (good) coffee, fresh fruits, juices, cakes, eggs and more. Thanks again guys for making our stay memorable. We hope to visit again one day soon!

The place is nice, well located. Breakfast is wonderful. But, rooms are extremely small, which does not brimg any pleasure to stay in. In addition, rooms are not cleaned, and bed not done every day. I would at least expext that from staying in a pousada!

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your response. As our hotel is an older reformed colonial building, we have 15 rooms in all different sizes in our hotel. All the rooms are beeing cleaned daily, unless the roomkey is not at the reception desk and there is no answer knocking at the door. We tried our best to change you to another room but unfortunately all the rooms were reserved in the period you stayed with us. We apologize for any inconvenience, with kind regards, Pousada Papaya Verde

Chose this hotel due to price and location. Location is superb being very close to the beach front with lots of amenities really closeby. Unlike many other TripAdvisor reviewers, our room experience (triple room) was very bad. The floor tiles were full of grime that stuck to our feet. We couldn't change the room. The maid tried cleaning the grime off the following morning, so it smelled better but what it really needs is a good scrubbing. There were no curtains and all we had was thick glass which did not block out street light. Plus lots of street / music from outside and the fact that we slept at all was a testament to how dead tired we were. The breakfast was pretty good and the staff had decent English. I did peep in to some other rooms. They seemed decent- so looks like we just had an awful room from hell!!

Dear "vit666", We are really shocked about your review and parts of your comments about our hotel. The room you stayed in is the last of our 15 rooms who still has the original floor tiles which are old but definately not "full of grime who needs a good scrubbing" or a "awful room from hell". Unfortunately this room is the last to be renovated, as our 14 others have been already renovated. We have 2 excellent cleaners working in our hotel who clean all our rooms daily! Unfortunately we were fully booked on the days of your stay so we were not able to change you to another room. The second night you did not wanted the cleaners enter your room anymore. We also did not receive any information from you about loud noise or street music, in which case our night recepcionist would have taken actions. Our hotel is situated in a very! quiet residental street and we hardly ever have problems with noise pollution. Anyhow we want to apologize for any inconvenience. Kindly, Pousada Papaya Verde

Thanks to the friendly stuff the pousada offers a very warm welcome to Salvador and introduces you to some local food and fresh juices on the breakfast buffet. The location is amazing, just minutes form the ocean to surf, swim, run. Set in a quired street in the suburb Barra you will also find many restaurants, bars and shops for everything you might need. If your room is too small you can escape to the deck and hang out in one of the hammocks on the first floor. Enjoy your visit.

Lovely pousada in a typical old house and recently renovated. I loved the decor and colors, making it a jewel. We booked on internet for 3 nights; When we arrived we were given a pretty room warning us that the next day we could change it for a better one. In fact, the second room was spectacular, with a balcony and a very nice view. The breakfast buffet is very rich and varied. The staff has always been very helpful in giving us any information and help (speaking english, portugues and french). Another argument in favor is the location: one step from the Orla of Barra, less than 100 meters from the bus stop (for the Pelourinho and for the airport).

The Pousada Papaya Verde was a terrific place to stay. The rooms are very simple (some better than others - I stayed there at the beginning of my trip in Bahia and the end) but is completely made up for with the best staff around and a lovely breakfast -full of choices, for everyone. If you need a luxury hotel this is certainly not the place to go. Bit if you are looking for an unpretentious place to stay with simple amenities in the Barra district (close to the water/beach, some good cafes, and restaurants, as well as buses that take you just about anywhere) then this is the spot for you. All rooms are fairly small but clean (although a couple of rooms are very small.) No matter, if you know to expect this - it is all good. The price is certainly right. The staff makes it even more right.

We stayed at papaya verde for two nights a couple of weeks ago. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast fantastic. However, our three-bed room had a very bad smell of humidity and there was a leak in the roof. Overall positive experience.

Dear Christina, Thank you very much for your nice comments about our hotel. During your stay we were renewing our rooftop at one side of our hotel - and very unfortunately there was this unexpected tropical rainshower which within a very short period let the water penetrate the provisorial roof and some water soaked through the wall and dripped into your room. We are very sorry for this inconvenience but we sincerely hope to be able to welcome you again one day in our hotel. With kind regards, Marco C Schoneborn

The pousada is very well located, at 2 minutes from the beach in the neighborhood of Barra which is quiet, surrounded by a lot of nice restaurants (but not the good place to party). The place is lovely, with a really nice terrace, but a little bit "kitsch", everything is flashy green or lilac and it can be agressive on morning. We had a really small room that we don't recommend (number 14). The breakfast has a lot of choices but some things are really bizar, and the juices were dreadful. The receptionists were adorable, with a lot of good advices and they really helped us to see the best of Salvador.
