Pousada Barroco na Bahia is in Saude, one of the historic neighborhoods in the capital's older Low Town. Pelourinho, Salvador's most popular colonial neighborhood, is about one-third of a mile (500 meters) away, where guests can tour historic buildings and see local music and dance. At Mercado Modelo, 1 mile (1.5 kilometers) away, guests can find local crafts and take in capoeira performances in the adjacent square. The German consulate is just next door, and parking is available on site. Pousada Barroco na Bahia also offers transportation to Deputado Luis Eduardo Magalhaes International Airport, 16 miles (26 kilometers) east.
4 buildings join to create Pousada Barroco na Bahia, each with a different style from a different era of Salvador's architecture. One has Art Deco décor, while another has a concert space with a pipe organ and a grand piano. Mornings bring complimentary breakfast, with Brazilian coffee, fresh fruit and eggs in the restaurant. On certain evenings, guests can visit the Berlin Café, a beer cellar with German ales on tap. There is complimentary wireless Internet access in the lobby.
Colonial-style guestrooms have private bathrooms, minibars, air conditioning, and in-room safes, as well as televisions.
