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.

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
