Tthis Pousada was nice enough, we staid for a couple of days and were due to stay for one night again before our flight home. A word of warning, although we cancelled the reservation 3 days before they went ahead and charged us full price for the room using our credit card details that they had stored. Be careful not...

boqueirao, Manager at Pousada do Boqueirao, responded to this review

The allegation that we process guests’ credit cards without undue authorization is incorrect and unjust. All credit cards transactions are processed upon signed authorization from our clients. The reservation in question was made by another guest, sharing the room with the complainant. The reservation was confirmed, and upon written signed authorization, dated July 08, 2011 from the accompanying guest authorizing...

Pousada Boqueirao is a wonderfully warm and charming colonial B&B with a gallery like feel, just up a small hill in magical Pelourinho. The location is perfect for walking and discovering the sites, restaurants and shops, although I do not recommend walking at night on ones own. The breakfasts were a master creation of delicious indulgence to awaken your taste...

I have probably stayed here 10 times both for business and pleasure. I've stayed in most of the rooms and keep coming back, preferring it to more convenient business hotels (Pestana, Othon). The view is unique, the breakfast too, rooms comfortable, not luxurious but overall a fabulous place to rest, escape from the bustle of the city and wake up...

This is an excellent hostel, which might give you a bad impression from the outside (at least that's what I thought at first). As soon as you enter, a huge area awaits you, plus the staff are so well trained (bet due to the owners being Italian!) Restaurant / Lounge area is situated port / sea view. Quiet neighborhood, in...

The Pousada is located 20min walk from the old town center Pelhourino. Pelhhourino is a tourist area, but quite clean and great for sighseeing. As long we walked on the main streets in Pelhourino, we felt safe, even during the night. Staff at reception speaks basic english. The breakfast is perfect. Order a room with sea view then you get...

We loooooved Pousada do Boqueirao. After trekking around in Lencois and a long bus ride to Salvador, Pousada Boqueirao was an oasis of elegance and charm. We stayed in the big colonial room—it was huge! Very nice wood furniture, view of the street, big bed, indoor hammock ... it had a shared bathroom down the hall, but the bathroom was...

The proprietress Fernanda and her staff made our stay comfortable, beautiful, easy and tasty. Both Fernanda and her brother Nino went out of their way to guide us, make reservations at other locales, support our business needs. The staff were always ultra helpful and filled with good will. Fernanda's decor is chic but steeped in traditional style. We don't want...

We stayed here for five nights and as everyone has already said, the breakfasts are amazing. We also had dinner here one night (must be booked in advance - they get busy and only accomodate a few people!) which was the best meal we had in Salvador. The room we had (room 9) did have a good view but it...

A really wonderful building. Breathtaking rennovation of an old colonial building at the top end of Pelourinhio. Safe to walk around in the evening but I didnt venture back into the main part after about 7pm, but there were a couple of nice little cafes on the same road. The breakfast was a work of art, with savouries and sweets...
