I stayed there for 3 nights by myself but wished I was there with my loved one the whole time. It's a romantic place! This little guesthouse is slightly out of the way and yet within walking distance from the old town. It's on a quiet street and away from the hustle and bustle of the town center. However, within 10 minutes walk on the STEEP cobblestone streets, you are in the middle of everything.
The views from the rooftop patio are spectacular! I spent a full hour having breakfast every morning and taking in the amazing views. Apparently, it's the only guesthouse that has an elevator in the old town. I never used it myself. But for someone with knee problems or heavy luggage, it would come in handy.
I was there during the low reason. The owner graciously changed my street view room to an ocean view room and what a difference it made! I was on the balcony every evening watching the spectacular sunset while sipping a cold bear. It doesn't get better than that!
Thanks to this little gem, I really enjoyed my trip to Salvador. In fact, I loved it more than Rio!
