This was one of the most beautiful pousadas we have ever stayed at - from the outside it looks very modest, and then you walk into what must have been a former mansion, with high ceilings, big verandas that look out into the bay, and terraces in the rooms. We stayed at a standard room with a view of the... More

Very nice Pousada in a safe and interesting part of in the old town. Also a fantastic breakfast in an artistic surrounding ,with view of the port and the bay. You find good restaurant in the immediate neighborhood. I can recommend Poro, ruined by a very resourceful young lady.

Located in the heart of Pelurinho (where the Michael Jackson song 'They Don't Care about Us' was shot), this Pousada has so much character and heritage, it feels like you're living in a museum. The breakfast spread is huge and delicious. We'd read reviews that the neighbourhood of Pelurinho (while culturally very rich) was unsafe after dark -but when we... More

We had stayed here 10 years previously and asked to be booked in here again . Pousada do Boqueiro is no luxury hotel but it has a lovely atmosphere and delightful staff , particularly David and the lady who is in charge of the kitchen . Other guests have mentioned the excellent breakfasts : much of the fare is home... More

One of the best pousadas I've stayed in, for several reasons. Upon arriving, I was a bit scared by the barbed wires etc on the façade, but as I walked inside the eclectic yet harmonious decoration and high ceilings of the main hallway charmed me. The owners were very nice and gave us a room with a view, as we... More

Hotel with a great location in Salvador : walking distance from Pelourinho and a great spot to explore the city. This side of the city is really safe even late at night as policemen are guarding the street 24/7. The hotel is charming, the staff very friendly, the rooms rustic but comfortable. No TV in the room, internet is a... More

I was apprehensive about visiting Salvador; Would I be safe? Would Salvador live up to the praise? Would I be able to delve into this alien culture? Now I count Salvador among my favorite destinations. Reason: I stayed at the Pousada do Boqueirao--that made all the difference. This lovingly converted mansion in the Santo Antonio district, within a short walking... More

We stayed at this Pousada for four nights in the new year on a b&b basis and loved everything about it. The breakfast terrace has a lovely seaview and the breakfasts we had were memorable. The hosts were friendly and relaxed and it was just like a home away from home. We would highly recommend this Pousada in Salvador as... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in late October The property and rooms. This is a beautifully restored property. Take some time to walk through and appreciate the structure and furnishing of the pousada – nothing is left to chance.
