Lovely interior, helpful staff and good ish locale but severely let down by ability to control noise . Building has practically no windows (shutters primarily which do not in all cases cover window gaps) so any noise from street is audible throughout entire hotel at any time ie bar across street which plays live music in til 2300 then carries...

Stayed here during the carnival. It's on the parade street, so if during carnival be prepared that it will be close to action, and loud - but I considered it as a plus. Hotel offers some great views on the back, rooms are decent, not too clean, but on a plus. Staff is very helpfull, english speaking, can give advice... More

Fantastic place. Really good location close to the historic centre but far enough away to make it feel very Salvador. Great little bars and eating places all along the main street it is on. Would defiantly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Salvador.

I look for three things in a place to stay -- location, cleanliness and value. This is located just up the road from the historical center -- which for me is great because it ensures quiet. It was clean. There was a terrace you could sit in if you liked. And for what I paid it was well worth it.... More

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip. They offer airport transfer for 100 reais. It was conveniently located near the pelourinho. Great wifi. The rooms were nice. AC was dicey at times but overall excellent stay. Breakfast was basic. The staff was very nice.

Beautiful old colonial building, in a great location in fantastic Salvador. 5 - 10 minutes to Pelourinho area (which is amazing!), with a couple if nice bars in between. We didn't feel any sense of threat even when walking back late - it's generally a fairly busy street even at night, and there's a very cool bar opposite. We had... More

Gorgeous 17th-century colonial building in the heart of the Old Town. Loved the character and charm of the place- even the room keys are vintage. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and definitely sufficient. Friendly staff and clean accommodations. We loved walking the old cobblestone streets at night and stopping in restaurants and bars to sample the... More

We took a family trip to Salvador and 13 of us stayed at the Pousada Colonial. It was great as we were able to see all the different styles of rooms in the hotel, each with its own charm. The actual hotel was very big with lots of areas to relax in and explore. I would definitely recommend a room... More

We stayed with a family of four in their Master bedroom on top of the Pousada overlooking the harbor. I guess that's the best room they have and definitely worth the money. It ranges over two floors with one bedroom on each floor. Be aware that you have to carry your suitcases up two flights to get there ( we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada Colonial is located in the beautiful Historic Center of Salvador. Since 2003, the Pousada preserve has offered something unique to experience in Salvador. Removed from modern tourism, the classic style of Brasil is all around. In an old townhouse you can feel the charm and elegance of colonial times. All the while taking advantage of the conveniences of the modern world. Our customers are attracted by the unmatched style and the ease of being located next to Pelourinho, the heart of Salvador and near other cultural and tourist spots. ... more   less
