The Salvador coastline is one of the longest for cities in Brazil. There are 80 km of beaches distributed between the High City and the Low City, from Inema, in the railroad suburb to the Praia do Flamengo, on the other side of town. While the Low City beaches are bathed by the waters of the Bay of All Saints (the country's most extensive bay), the High City beaches, like the Farol da Barra and Flamengo, are bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. Except the beach is Porto da Barra, the only High City beach located in the Bay of All Saints. The tourist who chooses Salvador can go to the beach in the morning, take a tour to the Historical Center in the afternoon, dinner at one of the good restaurants in town and go dancing in rehearsals blocks carnival or the sound of other musical styles.
Nice Apartment clean and tidy. I just used it for sleepig and showering as i went out to eat all the time. Plenty of restaurants and shops in the area and Salvador shopping is not far.Good view of the lighthouse and a couple of beaches in walking distance. Had a little issue with the WI-FI which Hans sorted out quickly for me.
Hans and Stella were very helpful from the minute i booked the apartment and i would have no problem in recommendig this apartment or rebooking it again when i come back to Salvador/
Very wide and bright apartment,furnished with cool style. Located in the beautiful district of Barra,you'll have all you need near to the house: supermarkets,drugstores,banks,great restaurants (especially on the boardwalk),pubs,beaches and bus stop from wich you can easily reach the main attractions - from Pelourinho to Itapua.
Very safe for the 24/7 supervision of various caretakers - a very kind, helpful staff. We never personally met the owners but they've arranged all for the best and our arrival and departure occurred without problems. We found the apartment clean . except for some hairs in the shower and a cigarette butt in the drawer-ouch! -the tents should be washed,too; towels and sheets were clean.
The rooms are as in the pics - super comfortable bed and couch!-and overall our opinion is good. A thing to underline is just that with a very small effort this place would be perfect and would lose that feeling of scruffiness and lack of care.Just some details:the kitchen furniture is old and shaky,the toilet's door doesn't close well and if you pull stronger the handle drops and falls;some doors lose like wood's chips when you open and close them,and are fixed just with tape-as in the kitchen;many fixtures and the towels'hook are rusty;the washbasin's drainpipe doesn't work that well and if you use flowing water for a minute then you'll hav to wait 5 for it to drain;in the kitchen sink the stopper was half moulded and a burner doesn't work..All the crockery is provided (except bottle opener!) but a pan wasn't usable for something had been chared in it.
Therefore,these are small things and don't prevent anyone from having a good stay -and considering the cheap price somehow you could expect something like it -but with a reeeeally small maintenance this place would definitely assume another appearance!I hope they'll catch our suggestions to make you stay even better!
Excelente apartamento, ideal para duas pessoas, em uma ótima localização (perto de bares, restaurantes, do mar e de pontos turísticos como o Farol da Barra).
O bairro é ótimo para passear pela orla de dia ou de noite.
Excellent apartment, ideal for two people, in a great location (close to bars, restaurants, sea and tourist spots like Farol da Barra).
The neighborhood is great for walking along the beach during the day or night.
I liked the apartment a lot, very closed to the beaches and to the Portuguese school were I was studying. Well located, in a safe neiborghood, and with beautiful views to the see. Hans is a very nice person.
wonderful Salvador trip! Hans & Stella's apartment fully respects the review that they have done on airbnb, giving a priceless view in a strategic location and safe area of town. recommended for any traveler! we will not hesitate to go back!THANKS!
Estuvimos una pareja en este apartamento en dos periodos. En nuestra primera estancia de tres días nos decepcionamos un poco porque aunque el apartamento es como en las fotos, hay detalles que se no se ven hasta que llegas allí ( los muebles de la cocina muy viejos, el suelo del baño era pintado y se levantada la pintura constantemente, ropa de cama vieja, y con aspecto poco limpio..etc). Como positivo, la zona esta muy bien dentro de lo que es Salvador, y bien comunicada con autobús tanto al aeropuerto como al centro de la (website hidden) puede ir andando a la playa porque está muy cerca y tienes varios restaurantes cerca. Portero 24 horas. Internet funciona muy bien.
En nuestra segunda estancia por otros tres días, comentamos a Hans y Stela lo de la ropa y la limpieza y nos comentaron que habían tenido problemas con el personal de limpieza y habían cambiado varias veces de empleados. La segunda vez el apartamento parecía más limpio aunque la ropa de cama y toallas eran muy viejas igualmente y no daban confort. Con un simple cambio en la ropa de cama y algunas toallas más nuevas serían un cambio importante.
En todo momento la comunicación con el casero ha sido rápida y predispuesto a los cambios, suponqo que con más tiempo solucione algunos de estos aspecto más negativos.
Resumiendo. Apartamento con relación calidad aceptable para su precio, ya que en Salvador los apartamentos en la zona de Barra son caros, aunque unos cambios no muy costosos mejorarían el aspecto del apartamento.
Perfect. I believe that in terms of quality/cost, that is the best accomodation we stayed in Brasil. Perfect (at least for us) location - 2 minutes from Farol da Barra and the most popular beach in Salvador, Simple, but tasteful. Communication was perfect, check in and check out (out of all possible hours) - smooth and efficient. Recommended 200%. Hope you don't book, when we are going to be back, as we'll definitely be. P.S. They area is not particularly good at night, so use taxi, but this is the rule for the whole city.
A cozy apartment, perfect for 1 to 2 persons. No AC, but the ocean breeze provides enough ventilation. Excellent view towards the main Barra beach and Farol da Barra. The buses stopping nearby provide a convenient connection to the rest of Salvador. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this apartment in the future. Minus one star goes for some of the equipment of the flat that is really worn out and needs to be replaced (door handles, shower tools).
The apartment is very basic but still has everything needed for a short stay. It can get hot from time to time, as there's no air con in the living room and over all the apartment could have been cleaned better. The location is great, less than 5 minutes walk to the beach and the light house. Walking distance from everything needed for your stay, beaches, banks, supermarkets...
El Departamento es Muy cómodo y seguro, además cuenta con todo lo necesario para estar bien.
Esta muy cerca del faro y las playas lo que lo hace aún más ideal
Me encantó y lo evalúo con el puntaje maximo
