I really liked this place. Great sized rooms, friendly staff and a front hall that is quiet and tasteful away from the heat and noise of the city. The breakfast is nice on the balcony - with an 'Interesting' view of the port. I was really happy here.

Stayed there for two nights in a nicely furnished double room with kingsize bed (Nr. 5, 2nd floor) Great ocean view. Breakfast ok, nothing too special though. Staff very friendly with limited English skills. Located in the middle of the old town in at a calm and safe corner. Would come again!

Pros: The Pousada is beautiful, the room was spacious, the ocean view from our balcony was amazing, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff were friendly. Cons: The staff didn´t speak English (common in Bahia), the neighbourhood was on the edge of Pelourinho and a bit sketchy (you wouldn´t feel safe walking around with a camera out), and it... More

One of the most beautiful guesthouse in Salvador. And one of the best breakfast we had in Brazil. We had no problem with the safe. A very good choice to get the spirit of peloyrino. The host Arik and his family were helpful.

We and our kids stayed at Pousada des arts. It is located between Sao Antonio Fort and Pelourinho. The pousada is beautiful and colorful with lots of art on the walls and floors. The staff is very nice and helpful. Only drawbacks are that some of the rooms are dark without enough lamps and the water in the shower isn't... More

This is the nice hotel with great rooms (take the seaview) well located to visit the city centre. However I left money in my wallet which was in my backpack. When we came back the evening, I was delightfully surprised to notice that some money disapeared ! Of course i let the owner knows about it ... But nothing Can... More

Very nice rustic atmosphere in the rooms and the lobby, the hotel itself is beautiful and the reception staff were friendly. It was set in the historic old town of salvador. Sadly the visit was ruined by a theft from the hotel safe - I know for a fact that 150USD was stolen as the count was short when I... More

The pousada is located in a beautiful building in a very nice neighbourhood just above the pelourinho. However, the nice location and the arty atmosphere was spoiled by quite incompetent staff. Check-in and check-out were cumbersome and lengthy, we didn't get our room cleaned after the first night, nor the trash bin emptied (which one might argue is quite important... More

I visited the hotel during the World Cup and was very pleased with the choice. The pousada has a relaxed vibe and was a nice place to hang out, with a large comfortable lounge with terrace. The breakfast was good and the staff were excellent. Free wifi. The owner was friendly. The location is excellent, near the old town. Good... More
