Sitting right at Penedo's historic centre, Hotel São Francisco features a pool and air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi. The restaurant serves buffet breakfast with fruits, cold cuts and hot meals. We stayed in about 9 different hotels/pousadas during this trip, and in this pricerlevel San Francisco stuck out far above all the other ones. As indeed said on the information you read here and there, the outside of the building might not attract you to book, but don't hesitate, just book. The quality of rooms, staff, pool (you can even choose between a big one of a very big one), location and little details all together compensate this completely.
Condomínio Eduardo Morais offers apartments with free WiFi in Penedo, 2.4 km from São Francisco river. All apartments are fully equipped with air conditioning, TV, refrigerator, microwave and oven. The plase is safe and clean. The lady who welcomed us was very nice
Boasting a garden, Pousada Lucena is situated in Penedo. There is a terrace and guests can make use of free WiFi and free private parking. At the guest house rooms have a shared bathroom. I have to say it’s one of the best places I stayed in. It’s a true home stay. The owner, kind and gentle man treats guests like he would treat guests in his home. The place is sparkling clean, good location and; and I mean it- for a little extra money, you will get best breakfast I have had in a guest house ever. Great place.
Pousada Raizes da Terra in Brejo Grande provides accommodation with a shared lounge, a garden and a terrace. The air-conditioned rooms provide a garden view and come with a desk and free WiFi. If you need to stay at this city, this is probably the best place to stay (although it is quite humble). Breakfast is good and they can cook some things specifically to you.
