This is a pleasant pousada, if a little rough around the edges, which is very close to the historic Pelorinho district of Salvador. There are 2 terraces (which were a must have for our accomodation) overlooking the bay and offering good sunset views. There is a nice breakfast served on one of these terraces - simple but sufficient. The rooms... More

We stayed four nights. The Pousada is very well located just off the center of "Pelourinho" that is Salvador's historic town. Gianluca, Ana Luz, and the night man, Giovanni (both men being Italian but speaking a variety of languages incl. Spanish, French, English) will do anything to ease your stay. The rooms are neat, breakfast is great!!. Beware of Pelourinho,... More

We liked this place. The breakfast was very nice, typical brazilian (I think) and the staff was very friendly. They kept my luggage for three weeks when I was travelling around without charge. The room we got was a bit boring without windows, but clean. The view from the breakfast terrace was so nice. the locaion is good in the... More

Last October we spent four days in Salvador at this Pousada. We really recomend it to everybody. The room was very comfortable with fantastic view on the bay, the breakfast delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful especially the owner Luca who gave us a lot of advice about city. Position is good, only 5 minutes from Pelourinho.

The pousada is well located and very well decorated The owner are very nice & helpful. we would not have discover the city & nightlife this way without all their tips. The breakfast that stays available until noon is perfect for those that like to spend the night out

Pousada Villa Carmo is very well located in the centre of the Pelorinho. It is safe and supervised 24/7. We stayed here in August 2011 and paid R$150 for a double room and breakfast which is pretty good for Salvador. Staff is very friendly and helpful! The breakfast area is on a balcony overlooking the baía de Todos os Santos,... More

I found this pousada on venere when I was having trouble getting a room last minute. The owner was quick to respond to my questions and when our flight was delayed out of Recife the night concierge handled our airport transfer changes and our driver was there to meet us at 5am. We stayed in room 1 overlooking the cobblestone... More

We were in room 4 (clearly the best, overlooking the harbor), two of the nights with our adult daughter. The layout of the room makes it a good choice for 3 people. We found the room, and little balcony, and the terrace downstairs to be very pleasant places to hang out. Now that we've been there, we know we would... More

This is a beautiful pousada, right in the heart of the old city of Salvador. It was clean, comfortable and surprisingly quiet given the location. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard fare, and nice enough. Would recommend it to others.
