    About

    Located on a picturesque street lined with centuries-old homes, this affordably priced hotel is right across from the Santo Antônio Church and about a 12-minute walk from Pelourinho, the heart of historical Salvador. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pelourinho is a fascinating blend of colonial architecture, Afro-Brazilian music and dance, artisan shops, and Bahian cafés. Here, too, you'll find Igreja Sao Francisco, a Baroque church with a magnificent gilded interior. About 1.4 miles (2.3 kilometers) from Pousada do Baluarte, you can take the Lacerda Elevator connecting Cidade Baixa ("Lower Town") with Cidade Alta ("Upper Town"). Want to visit Salvador's famous beaches? Ondina Beach, Porto da Barra Beach, and Farrol da Barra Beach are all within 3.3 miles (5.4 kilomeers). The international airport is a 30-minute drive. Your gracious, multilingual hosts will be happy to provide bus and taxi information-as well as insiders' tips on what to see and do in Salvador, Brazil's "capital of happiness."

    Before heading out, enjoy a complimentary homemade breakfast, served in the breakfast area or alfresco on the terrace. The selection includes freshly-baked breads, eggs, cereals, local fruit, and premium Brazilian coffee. Pousada do Baluarte also offers dinner, served at communal table-a great way to meet your fellow travelers and share your tales of the city. After dinner, you can curl up with a good book in the cozy living room. The hotel also provides 24-hour room service. Wireless Internet access is complimentary.

    With just 5 guestrooms, the Pousada has a friendly, homelike feeling. All rooms are smoke-free, and windows open to the fresh air and sunshine. Rooms also offer ceiling fans, air conditioning, and in-room safes.
