Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2016

Great location in Ipanema, 2 blocks from the beach one direction, 2-3 blocks to the lake the other direction. Very good area close to stores, restaurants, Sunday market. Host Sonia helped booked tours to Corcovado, Sugarloaf Mountains, and boat tour. Other tours available as well. Wonderful kitchen upstairs with a balcony

I stayed at Margaridas Pousada for 4 days while on solo vacation in Rio. It was the perfect B&B for me: just 3 blocks away from the beach, close to shops, good restaurants and a supermarket. I stayed on the 3rd floor in a cosy 1 bed room with basic amenities, but with a touch of hospitality. The breakfast was homemade including continental style bfast and eggs any style you like.

What Margaridas Pousada is most commendable for is its hospitality. The hostess Sonia spoke very good English (a rarity in Rio) and spent 1h of her time on my first day to help me book my sightseeing, day trips, tickets to the football match and my taxi back. A real touch of Brazilian hospitality.

Location is perfect - just four short blocks to Ipanema beach. Very close to shops and restaurants. Felt very safe walking around Ipanema area at night. The staff at the posada are very sweet and helpful. Breakfast is hearty - sweet breads, boiled eggs, ham, cheese, assorted fruits, juice and coffee. Wifi is excellent.

The price is unbeatable for the location. You're right in the middle of Ipanema, so it's safe, with lots close by, and you're a few blocks from the beach. Safety, price and location were the most important things for me, especially since I was travelling alone as a woman, and Margarida's was great for all of those. Sonia (sp?) and some of the other people who work there are really, really nice and helpful. Yes, the walls are paper thin, so you can hear a lot (just turn on the A/C though) and the accommodations like sheets, towels, etc. aren't like great, but for me, it's worth it for the price. Also, they should play some music in the breakfast room! It's a little too quiet. Just an idea! Thank you

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. The place is very quite although located on the busy street, but surrounded by nice trees. The hosts speak good english and spanish and they are very helpful in recommending nice places to dine, see and do. Highly recommended.

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. I can't wait to stay again.

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!
