After a relaxing week in Jericoacoara beach we headed to Salvador, right in the middle of everything, in the Pelourinho area, so we weren't expecting a quiet hotel, where one could take an afternoon nap to wait out the sweltering midday heat. Based on the pics online, Vila Bahia looked beautiful, but as an experienced traveler, I know you only...

We went to this restaurant on our first day in Salvador (we were staying at another hotel). The food was delightful, prepared most delicately, light but satisfying. The wines were well chosen and the service was attentive and well-paced. The dining room is absolutely charming. Many of the guests were French!

We weren't sure what to expect staying right in the heart of the Pelourinho but this hotel exceeded all expectations! The hotel, rooms and hallways are filled with furniture, art and details that make you feel like you are in a museum. The windows and shades completely obscure the sound and hustle and bustle of the square below with its...

Hotel located into classical houses in the historic center of Salvador de Bahia. Full of charm. Top quality service very personalized. Excellent breakfast served by a lady who brings happiness into your breakfast. The rooms are more than nice. If some customers complain about the fact that the place is "old fashioned" my answer is: these people do not know...

Bang next to the church. It's the best location with the buzz of the city and yet slightly private. The staff was extremely cooperative. Rooms, clean and spacious. We stayed in the Madagascar room and had a great view.

Thank god we were in this hotel since it is right on the center. The moment we deviated and went slightly further from hotel you feel unsafe at times. Hotel also boasts of an excellent restaurant. This is the hotel to book if visiting Salvador!

Villa Bahia is a very beautiful hotel with old fashioned decor matching the old town it is situated in.

This is a lovely boutique hotel right off the main square in historic Pelourinho. Each room is unique and has its own name and comes with a charming old fashioned key (remember to it drop off with reception when you leave the hotel as they need it to service your room). The rooms are well decorated and our room had...
