More about Pousada das Flores

Pousada in Pelourinho - Salvador

by dibenjamin about Pousada do Pilar

Pelourinho is the old quarter of Salvador. It's got cobbled streets and good nightlife, and I recommend staying there rather than in Barra for experiencing Salvador.

Initially we stayed in Pousada das Flores, but that pousada is very very expensive for what it is (a nice old house with terrible bathrooms). When we found Pousada do Pilar, which is also in an old house, but is renovated more recently (they opened in February 2005) and more effectively, we wished we had been there all along. The rooms in back look out over the water and have decks. All the rooms have lofts with spiral staircases, so you can sleep 4, or just read while the other person sleeps. There is air conditioning and a nice modern bathroom but the colonial / Pelourinho feeling is preserved.

They are both in the Pelourinho/Santo Antonio colonial historic district, which can be a little noisy and frenetic for my taste. As a tourist, I have preferred to stay 10-15 minutes away (by bus or taxi) at the beach in Barra and go into Pelourinho for the Tuesday bencao or to shop.

I have to say that I haven't stayed at either pousada/hotel. They both appear to have charm from the photos on their websites. I have heard comments that the owner of Redfish treats guests like family. But the deciding thing for me, if you are going in the Brazilian summer, would be the statement on the Flores website that they can bring in a portable air conditioning unit to a room that shows breeze-restricting mosquito nets, vs. Redfish which says it has silent units installed. In the Salvador summer, however much breeze they try to convince you there is, to sleep well, you are going to want a.c.

But for the price (Redfish starting at R$210-250 single), I would try to go on SkyAuction and bid for the Othon Palace (maybe less charm/atmosphere, but a 5 star hotel tower)in Ondina (with pool and next to the Barra beach neighborhood), with a view of the ocean, which some people have gotten for US$77 (R$142 at today's exchange)per night double.
