Très bon séjour. David et Angela nous ont très bien accueillis.
Le studio que nous avons occupé était parfait, avec cuisine et salle de bain. Le tout entièrement refait et rénové.
La rue où se situe le logement est à 10 minutes à pied du Pelourinho, et aussi du Mercado Modelo.
David est quelqu'un qui est à l'écoute, et est prêt à vous aider pour vous donner des astuces pour visiter au mieux Salvador de Bahia.
Bref, nous pouvons vous le recommander sans problèmes !
David´s Apt. Pelourinho I was quite ok, besides we were missing a wardrobe. If you are two people and have a lot of baggage it might be a little small. The internet functions perfectly. A bottle of white wine and fruits were waiting for us, nice gesture. The apartment itself is safe, but the surroundings are a little scary and we didn´t feel really comfortable. Even David recomended to don´t go around with photo material and be careful at night. Better take a taxi. David sure is very helbflul and provides all useful informations. It is not his fault, that Salvador da Bahia is not more the safest place. The price is fair for the conditions and if you take precautions it is a good place to discover Salvador.
The apartment is well located in a calm neighborhood only a short walk to the historical part of town. David was very helpful and true to all his great reviews. He provides a very safe place to stay and is a good person. For the price, this place is a real find.
David´s apartment is exactly a it appears in the pictures. It´s in a renovated house near the colonial sector. The inside is modern and clean and there is a seperate entrance from the street to the apartment. David was super thorough in his communication and preparation. There was a detailed packet of information in the room when I arrived, including multiple maps, points of interest with descriptions, and safety information. There was even a complimentary bottle of wine and fruit basket! Fantastic! The apartment is about a 10 minute walk to the center of the historic district and a safe walk during the day. At night, the immediate neighborhood has some rest. and bars that are frequented by Bahianos and could be a fine choice for staying close to home. The neighborhood has a gritty colonial not-yet-gentrified charm that some travelers, including me, would enjoy.
The room is great value - nice and modern and clean and well equipped. Close to the Pelourhino action by foot, and David is always helpful.
I had a fantastic stay here during Carnival 2013. The apartment was comfortable and modern with great wifi, all of which is a rarity in Salvador from my experience. And David and Angela, as everyone notes below, are so generous and welcoming. They gave me excellent recommendations for the right places to go and precautions to take; and really turned my Carnival into something special. I'll also add that I felt quite secure--the police have stepped up their presence considerably throughout the pelourinho--and had no issues throughout my stay.
Abracos, David! I look forward to my next visit.
David was a great host, giving lots of information about where to go and what to do, always willing to to help you in what ever way he can. I would definately recommend him to anyone looking to visit salvadore, to make your visit as enjoyable as possible!
David was amazing! And i cannot say that with any more emphisis other than to say DAVID WAS AMAZING!
When we first arrived in Salvador we were a little scared, to be honest. David took us around the place and showed us which area´s where safe, which were not, where to go, where to not go, organised our laundry, taxi´s and gave directions where required.
Whenever we needed him he was always there to help.
As for the accomodation, it was very secure and modern. It was a comfortable environment with a comfy bed and full kitchen faciities.
I would highly recommend you stay at one of David´s apartments, it is piece of mind, awesome location and comfortable.
