Sonja was very helpful in ways more than one.. Her English is excellent and its boon specially when you don't know Portuguese. The rooms are small and cozy and when you are Rio I guess you need to be out of your room and crash on to the bed only during the night. Thanks a Lot Sonja & Margarida for... More

We spent 4 nights at Margarida's and we can only warmly recommend it. The location is just brilliant, a couple of mins walk from ipanema beach, easy access to the metro and lots of nice restaurants. The pousada itself has simple rooms, very basic, but also very tidy and clean. Staff is great. Sonia was so eager to give information... More

Homely pousada with large, basic rooms and friendly service. Close to all the action in Ipanema. The rooms are fairly basic but provide enough amenities to make your stay comfortable. Staff friendly and willing to provide advice on things to see and do. Lady who works during the day speaks fluent English.

Very warm welcome, good tips for restaurants (important: Ipanema is a place with many restaurants but few are worth your money), decent room and bathroom (shower needs attention: water is going all over the place), frigde, AC. Window does not close properly, toilet paper needs to be put in a basket, harsh light, only Brazilian TV. Breakfast simple but OK,... More

We stayed there for the World Cup and the room we got was basic as it gets (plus a window that was broken and didn't stay closed to keep the mosquitos out). Just know that the rooms and the building feels like an urban dorm room and not a comfortable home in anyway. We've stayed at other pousadas before where... More

So we check in. I have only supplied a CC# confirm 6 months earlier. It is the World Cup. My American amigo who runs an apt. rental website in Rio can't even get me a decent priced apt. 6 months in advance of this reservation. Margarida has a 2 week in advance free cancellation. Que?! I speak some Portuguese from... More

We visited Margarida's Pousada during the World Cup in June. It was great value for money considering the fact that it is nestled in the heart of Ipanema- an upmarket area of Rio with a fabulous beach- much quieter than neighbouring copacabana. The room and ensuite were basic but very spacious and with all the key components- hot water, air... More

this is not a five-star inn, but for the traveler looking for somewhere that has character and a great location, I highly recommend Margarida's Pousada. The best thing about this place is the people that run it. We had some problems getting there on time and they were very accommodating. We were on a 1st name basis with the people... More

I love staying in nice places so I'm so glad we stayed here! This is a lovely guest house with friendly people. We checked in very late around 1am and were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. I was very sick at the time and spent most of our first day in Rio in our room. The staff were... More
