This was the first place I stayed in Brazil, back in 2007. The staff were really helpful, especially as I couldn't speak any portuguese. I found it to be a very friendly place, the amenities and surroundings were excellent for the needs of a traveller. Nice areas to chill out, share a beer with a friend or surf the net.
Excellent location for the sights, parties and central Pelourinho.
If I go back to Salvador de Bahia, I would stay here again, regardless of the slightly above average price.
It is also in the 'safe' part of Pelourinho, with police surveillance in the evenings to leave you with a better sense of security in what can be a potentially dangerous place at night. Use your common sense, don't walk around late at night on your own - or drink too much leaving yourself open. This was my first destination, and really I wish I had been able to return to explore a little more later on.
Laranjeiras will be helpful, insightful and relaxing - make it your stop in Salvador! tchau tchau e boa viagem!
