My whish is to be as near as possible from the historical center of the town and to be informed of the distance of these hotels from the airport (+ taxi rates for the transfer).
The hotels are:
Thanks a lot for your help because I've got only a few hours to decide...!!

Here is the page with (pre-paid) taxi TaxiComtas prices by zone:
The regular taxis in the line outside the airport may be a bit cheaper. Taxis may use the scenic coastal road or the inland highway.
It takes about an hour by air conditioned "executivo" bus service (under R$5)from the airport along the coastline to Barra and another 15 minutes to Pelourinho.

Here is a long list of hotels in a range of neighborhoods and prices:

The historic district is called Pelourinho. It and the beach neighborhood(s) in Porto da Barra and Farol da Barra, a 10-20 minute public bus ride (or R$10-15 taxi) away, are the most popular tourist neighborhoods to stay in. However, all the music and nightlife is not limited to Pelourinho.

As to these 4 hotels:
Porto Farol apartments is probably closest, in the Farol da Barra beach neighborhood. (R$76,14 by TaxiComtas from airport)
The Othon Palace is a VERY nice hotel in Ondina, the next neighborhood out from the Farol. If you're paying more than US$77/night, you ought to bid on for a room. There is no beach, but there is a pool. (R$76,14 by TaxiComtas from airport)
The Cocoon is out in the direction of the airport in Juagaribe and you will spend considerable time and money getting into Pelourinho. for a room. There is no beach, but there is a pool. (R$38,75 by TaxiComtas from airport)
The Sol Bahia is in Patamares, out by the airport. So even more time and money. (R$38,75 by TaxiComtas from airport)

There are some places right in Pelourinho and adjoining Santo Antonio as well.

Travel Tips for Salvador da Bahia


by MikeAtSea

These colourful ribbons are handed out by locals. Three knots tied into them symbolize three wishes, the wishes come true once the ribbon wears and falls of.
Though a lot of vendors use these ribbons to start a selling approach in Salvador.

Packing List

by msp_ssa

If you want to look like a tourist bring rain gear. The locals take cover under a store awning and wait out the rain or just get wet if they have to keep moving. If you're planning to go to any beaches be sure to bring sun screen with you. It's very expensive down there.

Cemitério Campo Santo

by msp_ssa

This is a large cemetery in the Federação neighborhood. I thought this was a beautiful place and I came here a few times just for the tranquillity.

It's on the bus line between Campo Grande and Pituba run by BTU, the red and blue buses and other buses too I'm sure. This is the line that doesn't go through Barra.

Aeroclube Plaza Show

by martinelli about Aeroclube Plaza Show

Not my kind of place. A sort of outdoor shopping mall, with some options of restaurant and pubs, one or two discos and 12 cinemas.

The cinemas are very good, with child-adaptable seats, sound surround system and great accomodations, however the prices are very high and the basic popcorn-and-coke kit may cost you more than your ticket.

The restaurants are expensive, the music is too loud, and the people hanging out there is not really my kind of people. Very snob and all dressed all alike, showing off their muscles and car keys... mostly teenagers and people in the mid-50 crisis. However there is a good cuban restaurant (Varadero) and an italian cheap one, although not that wonderful (Bella Napoli), a deco store that is simply fantastic (Imaginarium) and one of the few bowlings in Salvador (with annoying videoke facilities). Fashion and expensive.

Great beach atmosphere

by acemj about Barravento

The patio is covered by a cool, sail-like roof and overlooks the beach with a view all the way to the lighthouse at the end of the sand. Since the weather wasn't the greatest, I decided to eat inside where there are still large floor to ceiling windows that allow you to look out at the view. I ordered Moqueca de Siri Mole which is a typical dish of Bahia. Moqueca is basically an African-inspired seafood stew. In Bahia they cook with dende oil, which has a distinctive and rich taste and I enjoyed the hotter spices that gave the food a great flavor. The moqueca, however, seemed to skimp on the meat. The bits and pieces of seafood seemed to be all the throwaway bits and it was hard to find chunks of meat. I crunched my way through all sorts of legs and shells, but the flavor was so good, I didn't mind too much.
