“neat place with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

The hotel is very neat, the owner is very helpful with info and advice, not sure if all stuff is. The breakfast is rich and tasty, the view from the rooms is fantastic It is very well located. The swimming pool and the big lobby give you to nice areas to hang around in all weather conditions.
i was recommended great places for eating and can give you a free drink voucher for some.

We travel to this place when we want to be nearby the historical center, but not inside of it. I feel at home, safe, clean, and well attended to.
This july we're going with the whole family of 6, with our older children who will enjoy the swimming pool in town, and the breakfast area...
Kids addicted to internet...available at pousada da mangueira!

The hotel is very close to the old city center. The staff is very friendly and gave us good advice where to go. Room very clean. The good breakfast was served outside on the terrace. Nice swimming pool with view on the old city of Salvador. Some evenings, you hear a lot of music from the Pelhourinho. Would go back for a second time, even if the surrounding is not the most beautiful

It is so close to the warm vibe of the old city center of Salvador de Bahia! The view from the patio is like rainbow of old monuments, from old city center! Claudio the manager help us to figure out how to gaze the city but as soon he pin point out all the avoided place, I started to worry. Best of all the Map he give us is such a big help! We stay in the suite room the hang mat bed in the living room is so nice! If you like to feel the vibe of the city this is the best place, but of course the word be safe is necessary, the only city center that the local don't hide at all.

We stayed there for 2 nights. We chose the hotel because of the proximity to the old city. That was indeed true but the neighbourhood is pretty rundown. Was very uncomfortable in walking in the evening.
The hotel was okay but the staff were excellent. Helped us a lot in trying to find the safest route for walking as well as even exchanging money.
Breakfast was home made but limited in options.

Claudio the front desk manager was very helpful in telling me where to go, where to eat and arranging tours, he was also very helpful in recommending where I should travel next.
The Pousada is very well located across the street from the old city of Salvador.
The rooms were clean and air conditioned and the view from there is fantastic.
I definitely recommend this place.

Avoid this hotel at all costs. We had a confirmed booking with the hotel. They overbooked but failed to attempt to find alternative accommodation which they are required to do. The hotel shows no compassion towards its guests. There is no concept of customer service at all.
