The location is perfect to visit Salvador. In fact, the area is safe and central; the apartment is one block from the main beach, close to restaurants, supermarkets, and the main shopping center. It is also very close to transportation (bus and taxi) to get to any other place in Salvador. We stayed for 5 days with our son; we didn't have a car and we didn't feel any need for it. Finally, the owners are very friendly and helpful and it has been a great holiday for us. We definitely recommend it to anybody.
