Yes, it is a sweet little Boutique Hotel with 15 rooms in the middle of the very old and historic part of Salvador. The rooms are authentic in portoguese style, we had a room with an air condition but despite the high temperature and humidity we were happy with the fan at the ceiling. The staff is very friendly and the service is great. You cannot get a better breakfast in a small hotel like this, it is really the signature of the lady who organises this pretty place. The hotel is actually accommodated in two of the historic houses. Yes, it is authentic, it is organic, grown and not constructed on a drawing board. Almost like a small museum. It is clean and comfortable. It may need some bit of renovvation in some areas in the near future.
Now, we arrived late from the airport in the dark, driving throught the outskirts of the city which gave a very bad initial impression of a dirty harbour town, than approaching the old historic city of Salvador, still dark, bad roads, getting really scared ofthe neighbourhood. I could not believe it when our driver stopped the car in a very poor looking street at night, just like in the poorest quarter of a dark town in the 19th century. Where are the bandits? These were first impressions.
Once in the sweet Pousada, we felt much better because of the welcoming friendlyness of the people. Next day we wandered around all this area, and at night time we were happy to stroll along the roads to the may bars, cafe's and restaurants.
Last impression. Don't get scared when arriving at night. The sun will shine in you heart next day and you will really love it. It is pure and real and sweet. There is evev the consulate of The Neatherlands in the same street. A fully recommendable stay.
