We stayed in Rio de Janeiro in Ipanema - safe and nice district. This pousada is literally few steps (2 bloks) away from Ipanema Beach (Posto 10), next to main street of Ipanema. We arrived at 9am and our room was not only ready, but we were also served breakfest - the first time we tried the marvellous brazilian cafezihno.... More

5 minute walk Ipanema beach which is lovely. Lots of restaurants nearby and the neighbourhood feels extremely safe even to walk through at night. Sonia and her grandson speak perfect English and went out of their way to help with everything. Not luxury rooms but absolutely fine for the price and the breakfast is good with omelette made to order.... More

The lady host was so friendly and helpful and spoke perfect English. She had great recommendations for places to go out and for how to get to the sites. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. The breakfasts were also really good. Great location in safe area near the beach. Would stay again!

We really loved this place. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast set up together with the feeling in the Pousada created a feel of living in a family or home stay. We loved it. The location is fantastic with lots of cool restaurants and bars around, one block from Rio's best shopping street (especially local designer clothes)... More

This place is awesome because you feel like you are at your relatives' home. Dona Margarida, Sonia and Leonardo are extremely helpful. Fatima and Marileide were also very nice. Basically, the pousada has this family feeling. Enjoy it!! : )

Top location, a calm area three blocks from the beach and from the lake. Very expensive during New year holiday. The wifi didn´t work at the top floor. The manager and landlady very helpful and english speaking.

I stayed at this pousada for four nights in late November. I was a bit nervous as I was travelling alone (w/ no Portuguese) but soon this became my home away home! All staff was very warm and welcoming. The location was perfect – just two blocks away from the famous Ipanema beach and one block from the busy street... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about our week long stay at Margarida's Pousada! The owner, management and staff were so warm and friendly, we felt right at home. We were able to use the kitchen to prepare simple meals and Margarida's cakes for breakfast are amazing! Sonia, one of the front office staff, was always ready and willing to... More

It's a tiny hotel run by a family with friendly staff.Breakfast was included and good. Wifi was free and had good speed. The location was perfect and in a safe district.the only problem was that the owners did not come there before 11 in the morning and the other staff could not speak English.
