“Charming pousada!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2007

This pousada is very charming and well run. We stayed in a superior suite which was large yet simple: high ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, nice bed, hammock in the veranda, small fridge. The bathroom was somewhat small but workable. The description of the superior suite on the website reads that a TV is included but we did not have one in our room (nor did we need one).

Our travelling companions stayed in a standard room and their room was much smaller with no windows. I would not recommend booking a standard room.

The common areas are furnished with antiques and interesting artwork, and the breakfast is good as well. The staff was helpful although they do not speak much english.

The pousada is a 10-minute walk from the northern edge of the Pelourinho in the Santo Antonio neighborhood, which is much less noisy than staying in the Pelourinho. There are several (maybe 10?) nice pousadas along the same street but I would be careful walking this street late at night as it can be somewhat desolate. A taxi from the Pelourinho was about $6.

  • Liked — Charming, nice furnishings, clean
  • Disliked — Small windowless standard rooms, location is a bit far to walk late at night
  • Stayed January 2007
