Pros: the architecture is quite simply breathtaking. It's an old colonial restored house. Too beautiful to be true on the inside. The rooms are superbly decorated and has great details like a shower with a view of the bay and they raised the level of the bed so you can enjoy the view while lying down . The whole 'pousada' has a magic atmosphere. The breakfast is actually one of the best in my life. The staff is also a great contributor to the atmosphere, being really helpful and nice (as most people in Bahia). The view from my room to the bay was astonishing. The price (R$ 285) for a room this big, with this view, in this amazing house and with this fantastic breakfast is a no-brainer for the Brazilian reality.
Cons: though it's located in a historic 'center', it's a relatively isolated area of the city, which is now being revitalized - can get dangerous or at least weird at night, so I don't recommend walking at night time. The showers have low water pressure, but the owner assured me they were fixing this problem. I stayed in a room in the 3rd floor (the most amazing view) but it can be a lot of stairs for older people (no elevator, would ruin the house though).
All in all an amazing experience, and a must stay, even if for only a few days to get to know the house.
