The Inn Pousada Barroco na Bahia is clean, very nice, cheap hotel in central position near the famous Pelourinho with personel service.
The staff (but not the owner) were exceptionally kind.
This was a terrible hotel. It was not in Pelourinho as advertised--- you had to walk 5 minutes to get to a lit square, then all of the way down a steep hill, then all the way up a steep, urine soaked alley to get up to Pelourinho. I would never walk to or from Pelourinho at night from that location and would have never booked the hotel if I had known that it was there. The room had ants, spiders and other insects all over it. Something bit my ankle while I was sleeping and my entire ankle is still swollen (two people asked if I had sprained it, as the bite and swelling are so large). My room was not at all as pictured: super cheap foam mattress and super cheap furniture that made it look worse than a motel. The toilet rarely worked.
Helpful tips for first time visitors. Big patio to sit outside.
you pay to much for what you get. The location is not really good (to get back at night a taxi is needed), and a lot of the rooms are small and sticky with almost no light. For 20% less the price would be ok compared to Pousadas located inside Pelerinho.
Staff was friendly and the room was clean and quiet.The building (external area) is beautiful.
This "hotel" (It's actually more of a bed and breakfast with private bathroom) is near Pelourinho but the location is dodgy. It was particularly scary walking around the area at night. Also we didn't really fancy the breakfast and on my birthday the staff failed to inform me that my sister had called. Next time I go to Salvador I will avoid this place - I can definitely make better use of my money.
I wasn't aware that this accommodation was a hostel until we arrived. However, it was quite amazing. The accommodation was fantastic and was more like a mini suite. The only problem we had was the fact that there wasn't a lift which made it difficult to bring our luggage upstairs. Once inside, one had privacy, peace and quiet, despite any activity going on outside.The fact that the accommodation was in the heart of Salvador was also advantageous. We were walking distance from all the museums and churches. Staff too were freinldy and helpful, especially Bruno.Great place. Would definitely recommend.
This pousada has a rather unique position, an outpost of German musical tradition housed in several buildings, one of which has been very nicely restored to close to original condition -- located near the tourist centers but in a real working-class neighborhood. We enjoyed slowly getting to know the Saude neighborhood as an antidote to Pelourinho on the next hill over.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable.
Nobody speaks english there.
The attention was personal, they made me feel at home. Hans and his staff were vere supportive and kind. The hotel is very well located, near Pellouriño (where the action is) but far enought to be quite when you want to rest.The place is very beautifull, the breakfast is excellent, I recommenend it specially for artist and intellectuals.
I would prefer if there had telephone facilities and more written information about the city, tours, etc.
Very efficiently run establishment. Really nice accommodation, especially the house where we had breakfast. Free internet. The rooms in the main house are very nice. Very obliging staff helping with cash withdrawal at safe atm. Just ask.
The mattress was a bit uncomfortable. We had problems with the water temperature. We had cool showers for a couple of days. This was in the rooms where the German embassy is.
