We loved our stay in Pousada Casa Vila Bela very much. The pousada is in a very cool street with some nice bars and restaurant but much calmer than the pelourinho, and you can still walk there, day and night, in 5 minutes time. So perfect location. We had one of the rooms with balcony and sea view, which are... More

I had a wonderful time at this Pousada, despite arriving sick from Recife. I have to say that the staff and owners were so amazing. When you travel alone and get sick it's not easy, but the staff/owners looked after me, checked in on me, ensured I had water/coconut juice. The place is also well run, clean, ideally located, with... More

I booked the colonial room. The Pousada is very central on a relatively safe street. You are walking distance to the center of everything. Around many nice bars and restaurants. The interior is very special with a lot of care to reflect the colonial times. It looks like from a James Bond movie The room has a balcony with a... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Casa Vila Bela - it was a great experience. We had spent the previous few days in a huge hotel in Rio, so this was a welcomed change. It's a beautiful, quaint inn (8 rooms, I think) close to the Pelourinho in Salvador. It's a quick 5 minute walk to the historic... More

After a few days of travel, and staying at less than ideal pousadas, we stumbled upon this beautiful little place. It's not in the main part of the Pelourinho, but just a few minutes walk away. The owner is a delightful woman, and the energy of the place is really nice. The women who prepare the breakfast are also very... More

We arrived at Casa Vila Bela off of a 9 hour flight at 4:30am and much to our appreciation there was a polite man there waiting to let us inside. After such a long a tiring flight it was a great relief to find the Pousada so easily and friendly upon arrival. The Pousada is beautifully charming and at breakfast... More

Found the place via TripAdvisor, and it was better than what we had expected. Gerusa made our stay much more productive by suggesting great things to do. Due to reservation issues we had to stay in two different rooms, two nights overlooking the bay, and the other two night to the street. Both were GREAT rooms..., clean..., roomy. Breakfast was...

Manager / owner Gerusa is lovely and welcoming. Her local knowledge of whats on, where to go was very useful. Fantastic large room, homely feel, huge bathroom and nice breakfast. Also very clean and spacious feel to the place. Wifi was problematic in the room but fine in the lounge. Bed was a little short if you are over 6ft,... More
