Salvador is currently one of the most popular Brazilian destinations for tourists from around the world. With over 40 km of coastline, the capital of Bahia is famous not only for its beaches but also for its celebrations, especially its Carnival, considered the most popular party in the world.
The Bahian cuisine is one of the characteristics of Brazil and has fans worldwide. The Bahian food is hot, spicy and has a distinctive flavor!
The Historic Centre / Pelourinho gathers all the best that we can absorb the culture in the city. The Pelourinho currently brings together restaurants with the best flavor of Bahian cuisine, crafts, baroque architecture, religion, cultural centers and more!
We rocked up to the biggest party in the world looking for a once in a lifetime experience and fortunately Daniel was the host to guide us through this epic party. His knowledge of the area and party was superb and he was on call 24-7 to provide us with assistance if we needed it. The apartment was in great condition with everything as described. The location was unbelievable and we had the best week ever. I would highly recommend Daniel as a host and would 100% go through him again. Thanks Daniel!!!!
Daniel se comportó de manera muy amigable y profesional con nosotros, recomendándonos lugares y páginas web interesantes. Además, teniendo en cuenta el horario de nuestro vuelo de regreso, nos permitió ser flexibles con nuestro check out, y siempre atento a nuestros mensajes y llamadas.
El apartamento está en buenas condiciones, aunque nosotros tuvimos algún problema con las duchas que Daniel trató de solucionar en seguida.
De todos modos, a pesar del buen trato de Daniel, es mi obligación comentar que Pelourinho no me pareció una zona amable para la residencia de turistas. Creo que es un barrio precioso para visitar, pero en cuanto anochece, la zona se vuelve peligrosa o, al menos, incómoda; en particular, la calle donde se encuentra la puerta de nuestro edificio, en la que encontramos niños drogados y adultos pidiendo dinero de manera más o menos intimidatoria.
Nos han comentado que el barrio de Pelourinho ha tenido épocas mejores y otras peores, espero que pronto mejore y vuelva a ser el área con seguridad que una zona turística como esa merece.
Daniel was such a good host. He greeted us at the apartment and even took time to show us around the neighborhood. The apartment is great, and has an unbelievable view of the ocean. I highly recommend booking with Daniel.
Daniel was a friendly, very helpful and responsive host, on hand via email and in person to troubleshoot any logistical issues that arose during our stay. The apartment was spacious and ideally located, just steps away from the bustle and activity of the Pelhourino as well as several transportation hubs.
Daniel is a great host and is English speaking. He showed us around town and was always available when needed. The apartment is very spacious, modern and well equipped with a view over the bay and an ideal location for Pelourinho. Great place to come home to after a day in Salvador.
Daniel is an excellent host who took 2 hours to show us the area and gave us many tips. He solved some problems with the wi-fi. The apartment is very well located, nice view and big. Some care must be taken at night in the Pelourinho area. Your stay must include a Tuesday evening, since the area is full of music and street entertainment that day.
Sin lugar a dudas recomiendo este despartamento para una estancia en Salvador, por su excelente ubicación, por su privacidad, por su estado, no falta nada y por la amable atención que Daniel me dedicó al recibirme y acompañarme en una breve recorrida por pleno Pelourinho, gracias Daniel, si vuelvo a Salvador, cosa que no descarto, seguro te voy a tener en cuenta.
Very nice appartment close to pelourinho. The appartment is safe and clean, the bed has good quality.
Daniel is a nice person and has a good organisation and good contact in Salvador.
The apartment is a good size. Daniel refunded a portion for the elevator not working, though it was still quite tiring to walk up all those flights.. such that, we missed out on a night of festivities as all the walking up those stairs (no joke stairs!) put us to sleep on one of our nights! The apt also got humid at times, but Daniel was great in checking us in and giving us tips.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
