We came to Magarida's with the intention of staying 5 nights and we ended up staying 8. We changed our plans multiple times and Sonia and Leonardo accommodated our every request with a smile on their face. They went over and above to help us.

Sonia makes takes this pousada to another level. She went over and above to help us with our plans, suggest places to go and even go and get us medicine when we were sick. She is the most lovely, outgoing and friendly person and one of the most helpful that we came across over our 4 month trip.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and great value for the prime location in rio. The breakfast meets everyone's tastes and is available most of the morning to fit in with your plans for the day.

We would highly recommend margarida's for your stay in rio!

Affordable luxury in Sucre
Due to a mistake by a popular Ipanema hostel, we found ourselves in the middle of a Rio thunderstorm, at night, with no accommodation. Thanks to the recommendation of a fellow traveller, after a wet walk we found ourselves at Margarida's. The staff went out of our way to help us with our wet gear, to arrange our three-person room for our extra person. They also managed to figure out that the wet tourist arriving at 4am was the fourth member of our party and send him to the right room....all without a word of Portuguese spoken by us! This was far, far more than Ipanema Beach hostel was able to do.
The room was very small with four people, although the staff offered us a bigger room it was totally suitable for our needs. The bathroom was tiny but clean. Beach towels were provided on request.
The breakfast (included) was delicious; warm, fresh bread rolls, eggs, different spreads, juice, tea and coffee. Lovely.
The English speaking staff were able to recommend trips, places to get a pedicure and things to do in the rain.
The location was amazing given the great price of Margarida's, three blocks from the beach, one block from the main street of Ipanema. A cheap airport transfer just topped this excellent experience off.

We really enjoyed our stay.

The staff arranged our taxi from the airport, a nice friendly bloke was waiting for us which was a relief, after a long flight I didn't fancy negotiating public transport at night.

The pousada is in a safe neighbourhood near both expensive and more budget food places.

All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. One lady spoke excellent English and Margarida was a sweetheart. The lady in the breakfast kitchen was also lovely. We felt very much at home.

Breakfast was good with a wide variety.

We had ear plugs so didnt really notice noise from other guests but if your a light sleeper maybe avoid the first floor rooms.

Would defo recommend, regular hotels in ratio seem eyewateringly expensive but here was OK.

The accommodation was a bit pricey in Canadian standards but we had an amazing stay. The English speaking staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was neat and contained a safe, tv, fridge and air conditioning. Unlimited water was provided and the breakfast included a large selection of food. Our flight left late in the night and we were allowed access to our room for a shower prior to our departure even after we had checked out.
