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

Mrs margarida will welcome you in her 3 floors pousada. she and sonia (who speaks very good english) will make you feel you're not in a cold super vip area in ipanema, but... 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

Lovely place, lovely staff. I cannot say that Margaridas Pousada is a luxury place, however, the rooms are really clean, good space, comfortable bed and pillow, nice shower, a bit noise because of the air conditioning but not a problem at all to sleep. Small room to have breakfast but also lovely with good fresh fruits and tasty homemade sweets... More

I can't say enough great things about this place. The owner and staff were so accommodating. Had a great room with a TV with cable that really helped me practice Portuguese. The breakfast is on the top floor where you mingle with other guests or can sit outside on the balcony. It's quaint, has internet downstairs, 24 hour watchman if... More

Excellent choice! Spacious, clean rooms. Good breakfast on a balcony was a great way to start the day. Location is superb. Beach, restaurants, shops, metro, busroutes, lagoon, everything in Ipanema is in walking distance. Helpful and friendly staff, ask a question, they'll answer. Have a problem, they'll solve it. Highly recommend Margarida's as your next place to stay in RDJ.
