What an incredible place! Only stayed one night in this beautiful art hotel before we set off to relax on an island but really hope we can return at some point! The artist herself makes gorgeous art and the hotel is stunning in every single detail! Bed is comfortable, breakfast delicious! Perfect stay!!

I stayed at this inn from June 12 to July 5 and totally felt like I was in my house. the staff members were very helpful and nice. I consider them now friends. Also the ocean view from the room I stayed in was amazing, especially at the sunset time in the evening. I totally recommend this place.

I really liked this place. Great sized rooms, friendly staff and a front hall that is quiet and tasteful away from the heat and noise of the city. The breakfast is nice on the balcony - with an 'Interesting' view of the port. I was really happy here.

Stayed there for two nights in a nicely furnished double room with kingsize bed (Nr. 5, 2nd floor) Great ocean view. Breakfast ok, nothing too special though. Staff very friendly with limited English skills. Located in the middle of the old town in at a calm and safe corner. Would come again!

Pros: The Pousada is beautiful, the room was spacious, the ocean view from our balcony was amazing, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff were friendly. Cons: The staff didn´t speak English (common in Bahia), the neighbourhood was on the edge of Pelourinho and a bit sketchy (you wouldn´t feel safe walking around with a camera out), and it...

One of the most beautiful guesthouse in Salvador. And one of the best breakfast we had in Brazil. We had no problem with the safe. A very good choice to get the spirit of peloyrino. The host Arik and his family were helpful.

Very nice rustic atmosphere in the rooms and the lobby, the hotel itself is beautiful and the reception staff were friendly. It was set in the historic old town of salvador. Sadly the visit was ruined by a theft from the hotel safe - I know for a fact that 150USD was stolen as the count was short when I...
