The Pousada das Flores is ideally located for a discovery of the historic centre of Salvador. In addition, it offers a private and pleasant environment, appreciated by those who enjoy Bed & Breakfast accommodations. However, comfort is not the same as in a chain hotel.

    Location 6.9 /10

    In the city centre, on Rua Direita de Santo Antônio. The airport is 30 miles away. Count 40 minutes for transfers by taxi.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The Pousada das Flores has 9 rooms, including 2 standard rooms, 4 superior suites, and 3 suites with terrace. Surfaces vary from 430 to 860 feet². All rooms overlook the street. Lined with colourful houses, and quiet at night, this street is very pleasant. However, to enjoy the most beautiful view from the Pousada, don't hesitate to request room 9. It has a terrace (375 feet²), it overlooks the city roofs and the sea in the background. Exceptional panorama at sunset! The rooms are furnished in refined wrought iron. The canopy bed is protected by a mosquito net, and windows have interior shutters in painted wood. However, comfort is basic: fan, mini-bar and direct telephone, free safe. Bathrooms are very small and only feature a shower and welcome toiletries. Air conditioning should be installed soon.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Beautiful 19th century mansion, with two storeys and a yellow façade and blue balconies, the Pousada das Flores offers a warm interior with varnished wooden floors and voluntarily unadorned white walls. As in most traditional homes in Salvador, the stairs leading to the rooms are rather steep. Therefore, the hotel is not recommended to persons with limited mobility. However, those who enjoy antique chairs with shiny armrests, marble pedestal tables and small polished metal lamps, will be delighted. All these objects perfectly decorate the entrance and corridors to the rooms or restaurant. Regarding amenities, a television room is planned. The Pousada also has Internet access.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Breakfast is served buffet-style in a pleasant dining room with wooden floor. The reasonably varied selection of breakfast foods includes homemade yoghurts, 3 types of pastries, crepes, ham and cheese, and fruit juices. The Pousada also offers a specialty seafood restaurant serving crayfish, gambas and other shellfishes served in the traditional Bahia style.

    To know

    The Pousada das Flores is the ideal address for a cultural stay in Salvador. This hotel is installed in a tastefully restaured house dating from 1740. Since it is in the upper town, it is only a few minutes away on foot from Pelourinho (historic centre). Ideal for visiting the numerous baroque churches, pride of Salvador, walking in the streets lined with colourful houses, and buying unusual souvenirs in the small craft shops (embroideries, basketworks, sculptures). To reach the lower town, there is a 230-foot elevator landing a few steps from the marina and Mercado Modelo (the renowned traditional market of Salvador). Beaches, however, are at a distance: they border the southeastern part of the town, starting at Farol da Barra. Count 10 minutes by car.

    The Pousada supports charity projects in Salvador: If you have clothes, toys, or medications to donate, make room for them in your suitcase...
