So so hotel in Salvador old town

Posted Sep 18, 2016
This pousada is convenient for Salvador centre. However I can't really recommend it I'm afraid. I was literally the only guest staying there and I did not have a good experience. The cheapest rooms have no window so I upgraded first to a street side room. It was so noisy at night with people shouting and loud music till late, that I moved to a more expensive sea view room. The noise was even worse! There were bands playing just outside till midnight and then a loud party next door which lasted all night and morning. The rooms were over priced - the showers didn't work properly and the breakfast was inedible. The owner is nice but the staff were not very friendly and at night there is just a guard who speaks no English. I won't be staying here again, sorry to say.

We are very happy with our stay here. The owner helped us with food tips, places to see and different things happening in the area. The restaurant across the street "Poro" is amazing!! Eat there.

Beautiful, quaint inn with fabulous owners/staff.

Posted Nov 4, 2015
My girlfriend's and I stayed at this inn for 5 nights and felt completely at home. The owners, Gerusa and Stephane, contacted me prior to our stay to provide me with details on how to leave the necessary deposit (Western Union, which was super easy), and set up our airport transport (the driver was on time & very friendly). The inn itself is beautifully decorated, quaint, and homey. The location is perfect in that nightlife is within walking distance, but not right in the middle of it. Beaches are a short cab ride away & they are gorgeous. Gerusa was beyond helpful & went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and safe. She is an absolutely lovely woman. The staff was just as warm & they whip up a delicious breakfast every morning. All in all, I have zero complaints. I would absolutely return to the Pousada Casa Vila Bela.

Excellente pousada

Posted Aug 29, 2015 on Hotels
Excellente pousada avec une vue superbe pour les chambres donnant sur la baie de tous les saints et une maison très belle, idéalement située pour visiter Salvador tout en restant au calme. Chambre spacieuse et confortable, très bon accueil (francopohone) des hôtes et de leur personnel avec de bons conseils sur les visites, les restos, etc... Si vraiment on veut chercher des points de détail négatifs, le seul point à noter est un débit de douche un peu faible au dernier étage de la maison...

Wonderful staff and a charming hotel in the heart of the Pelo in old Salvador. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic experience in Bahia.
