The photos of this pousada lured me in booking it however on arrival although very colourful, it isn't as polished as it looks on the website. Although on the main road it's almost at the end therefore it is a 10 minute walk to the old town. The look of the room has been focused more so than the practicalities of it. Five lamps/lights were needed to be switched on at night before there was decent light, the shower head spluttered water all over the bathroom regardless which direction you turn it.
On the website you have a choice of the view being the old town i.e the street which runs from the old town 10 minutes away or the sea i.e the sea and factories.
Breakfast is nice although exactly the same each day.
The staff are nice and hekpful. Even those that couldn't speak English tried to help as much as they could.
It was ok but I'd try elsewhere if I returned to Salvador.
