Villa Bahia is an excellent choice for anyone looking to stay in the heart of Salvador’s historic Pelourinho district; Salvador’s UNESCO World Heritage listed quarter. With beautifully decorated rooms, welcoming and attentive staff, delicious food and, of course, a great location, Villa Bahia prides itself on offering an authentic Bahian experience for its guests.

Located on a pedestrianised street next to the extravagant São Francisco Church and Convent, in the heart of Pelourinho, Villa Bahia provides an excellent base for exploring the rest of the city and is well located for local bars and restaurants.

Occupying two adjoining colonial town houses, built in the 17th and 18th centuries, the hotel has been lovingly restored to recall the time in which the houses were originally built with many original features and carefully selected antiques.

Set over three floors, the hotel has 17 rooms. All are classified under the same category but each room is unique in its size, layout and decoration. Given the layout of the townhouses, some rooms face the front of the property, others the interior courtyard and a couple, at the rear of the hotel, have private outdoor terraces.

With two garden courtyards at the back of the property, a small pool and a panoramic rooftop terrace, the hotel offers a calm and relaxing environment to come back to after a busy day of sight seeing.

We also like the fact that the hotel is committed to sustainability and supporting the local community. Just some of their good practices include, employing staff from the area of Bahia, sourcing ingredients from local suppliers and collaborating in a recycling scheme with a local co-operative.

Historical building, central location, good value.

Only some rooms have views, others look out onto the courtyard
