    About

    At Hotel Villa Bahia, you'll have an ideal place to start exploring Pelourinho, the oldest neighborhood in historic Salvador. You'll be staying right on Pelourinho Square, next to the tourist police station and in the center of the car-free pedestrian district, surrounded by local music venues. A metro station is located nearby. This neighborhood is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of landmarks from Salvador's long history. Fundacao Casa de Jorge Amado, a museum and foundation dedicated to the memory of one of Bahia's most famous writers, is 350 meters (less than a quarter-mile) away. Peruse the craft and food vendors at bustling Mercado Modelo, just 1 km (a little over a half-mile) west, or spend a scenic afternoon taking in All Saints Bay and Salvador's western waterfront-it's just shy of 1.25 km (about three-quarters of a mile) away.

    Two renovated colonial houses from the 17th and 18th centuries-typical for this area full of historic homes-are decorated with antiques, vintage fittings, and locally sourced furniture. One courtyard contains a small tiled plunge pool surrounded by greenery, while the other frames a relaxing fountain. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner on the hotel's front patio or in one of the courtyards. A bountiful Bahian breakfast is complimentary and served each morning. Room service is available during limited hours. Take in even more of this historic neighborhood from the rooftop terrace. You can tell your family at home about your trip with the complimentary hotel-wide wireless Internet access.

    Guestrooms are as unique as the 2 houses that create this hotel. Each is individually decorated and named for a port or a period of Portuguese expansion in Brazil. Layouts and size vary; some include sofa beds, and others offer private terraces. The 32-inch HDTV comes with premium cable channels. Bathrooms have bathrobes and hair dryers. Iron/ironing boards are available upon request. Turndown service is performed daily.

    This is a wheelchair accessible property.
