This place is absolutely gorgeous. Rooms and common areas are very charming and everything is super clean. Staff spoke a bit of English and Spanish and were super sweet and friendly so communication wasn't too much of a problem. I booked a room with shared bathroom but got one with an ensuite for no extra cost (although I guess this...

The Pousada is very well decorated, super clean, well located and the breakfast is excellent. We had the suite which was pretty good though the bathroom could be a little better... Service was good though shy. They suggest a pick up service at the airport, that's 3 times more expensive than uber, so don't take it. Go for Uber. But...

We are a group of 9 women from Denmark, who lived in the lovely Pousada Baluarte in Salvado in March 2016. Already in the hall, we felt welcome and cozy and the well-appointed rooms turned out to be the perfect setting for our stay in Salvador. The building is beautifully renovated and everything was well maintained and clean. We started...

We were nine friends on the trip and we did not in our wildest dreams imagined that we would that we would get to stay so fantastic. Zelina and her helper waited us up as we were princesses. She made sure to follow us if she thought it was necessary, arranging for taxis and generally she was a very great...

I stayed at Pousada Baluerte in February 2016. From the initial booking the Pousada whilst in London to arriving in Brazil, Zelina was very efficient and extremely helpful. I found the accomodation clean, fresh sheets, maid service daily. The breakfast was plentiful with lots of local fresh fruit and juice daily. The bread rolls were also fresh daily. Zelina also...

We stayed for one night on a visit to Salvador and it was fabulous. The guesthouse is very clean and our rooms and beds were comfortable. The house itself has an old world charm and elegance and feels very calm and peaceful throughout. It is in the quieter part of Santo Antonio but within a 15 minute walk to the...

Pousada Baluarte is an excellent option in Salvador. Not only you feel at home but also Zelina helps you with their recommendation of what is going on in the city. The pousada is very well located -just a very short walk to Pelourinho- in a neighborhood plenty of restaurants and local artists. Definitely a good option if you want to...

I went to Pousada Baluarte with my mother and sister (three adults) for a family vacation. Zelina was a wonderful hostess from the very start, arranging our transportation to and from the airport and providing us with recommendations for site seeing and restaurants among others. The Pousada was incredibly beautiful and all the staff were super friendly and warm. It...

Zelina was a wonderful hostess right from the very beginning, (responding to my emails promptly and answering all my questions) right up until the end when she organised a safe place for us to leave our bags after check-out (our flight home was very late). The B&B was wonderful, very clean and neat and well serviced. The breakfast each morning...
