Certificate of Excellence
Situated in Barra, one of the best areas of Salvador, where you can find some of the nicest beaches of the city. Just a 3-minute walk to the first beach, 5 minutes to the "harbour of Barra" and located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. A tropical garden with exotic flowers and plants and a variety of song birds give you the impression of staying in a green oasis in the heart of Salvador.

Pousada Papaya Verde. Although the place looks attractive from the outside, the service of the place is very very poor. It's obvious that the the two owners never ever had any hospitality training or any experience in the hotel business before. The nightmare started when we

Response from PousadaPapayaVerde, Owners Comment at Hotel Pousada Papaya Verde
Responded 15 Aug 2008
dear visitors, i was really surprised this morning receiving an e-mail from two of our regular guests from Germany, telling me about a quite negative review of our Hotel/Pousada here on this site. My name is Marco Cecilio and i am the owner of the Pousada Papaya Verde. I have worked for several years in different hotels in Europe (Avenue Hotel Amsterdam, Hilton Hotel Amsterdam) before i decided to open my own hotel here in Salvador. As I live above my hotel, the atmosphere of and in my "Home" and the treatment of my guests is from outmost importance to me. We do not have our own pick-up service from the airport, but we offer our guests to be picked up by taxi for a special lower fee than the usual taxis charge. Unfortunately it has happened before that the taxidriver was waiting at the airport for guests and did not find them, that is why we ask our guests to reconfirm their flights and pick-up by e-mail some days before arrival with all !!! necessay flight details. All our 15 rooms have !!! windows , fan and air-condtioning, to definately provide fresh air to our guests, depending of the individual taste of the clients, we are in the tropics after all and the air is hot and humid if you just open the window. All our rooms have standard singlesize (1 person) or queensize (2 persons) box-spring beds of the highest quality (Orthobom). Unfortunately it is not possible to please all clients 100%, but we are definately trying our best to do so and are very happy to already have, after only 2 1/2 years, a big circle of regular customers who enjoy very much to return and stay with us. with kind regards, Marco Cecilio Schoneborn

"Avoid the triple room on ground floor overlooking the lobby"
"if there are multiple vacancies ask to look at rooms & choose one that suits you."
"not very sure but I think all the rooms are good"
"There is no elevator and steep wooden steps. We were on the first floor but it would be tough for any people with disabilities or carrying a lot of luggage."
"The upstairs rooms are the best, with nice views and breezy balconies."
US$32 - US$56 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
