Few minutes from Pelourinho in the Rua Sant Antonio direita, which is the extension of the main street of Pelourinho towards south. We felt safe walking at home even by night, leaving our handbags and credit cards in the safe, taking only the most necessary money on the walk, but the last few hundred meters are quite abandoned at night and may give the feeling of discomfort for some trvelling alone (we were four adults)
Two old houses built together, renovated with a great sense for style and tradition, decorated with remarkable artwork all over the house. Breakfast is served on a big terrace with a great view over the harbor and the bay, where you also can watch the sunset. The house and the rooms are spotlessly clean. We had the luxury room with a spacious terrace with a beautiful view over the roofs of the quarters San Antonio and Pelourinho, the room itself was on two levels with a sleeping and a living area, equipped with well-functioning Aircon and fan.
The greatest breakfast we had on our last two trips in Brazil, uniting the best of Italian and Brazilian tradition. They serve various fresh fruits, fresh squeezed pure fruit juice, 3-4 different kind of bread, ham cheese and one day even Italian salami of good quality, different Brazilian and Italian pastries, cereals, fresh scrambled eggs on demand.
The Italian owner (or brother of the owner?) speaks fluently Portuguese, Spanish and English, always friendly, he helped us with many practical advices like where to go out for lunch, transport to our next stop in Morro de Sao Paolo etc. Also all the other members of the staff were helpful in every situation, attentive and always with a smile on their faces. A sympathetic detail is, that the pousada gives everything from the breakfast buffet which has not been eaten by the guests to poor families living in the favela near by
All in all will you find an extremely well-driven pousada with sense for style, art, service and a bit luxury, the prices of R$ 210 for a standard double room (which are still spacious) and R$ for 310 for our luxury room is absolutely worth it!
