Incredible place to stay in Rio. The team at the pousada makes you feel like family. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is so good!!!! The location can't be beat. Will be back to stay here again!

My partner and I stayed 5 nights at Margarida's Posada and loved it! The accomodation is basic but has everything you need, located just 1 block from Main Street with restaurants/shops/supermarket/banks etc and 3 blocks from beach (Post 10). The breakfast is great with fruit, bread, eggs, cake and if you're lucky Margarida's sweet cinnamon rice. The place was very safe, I would recommend for solo travellers. Margarida and her grandsons were so welcoming and accomodating in organising us tours, transport and even our laundry when we couldn't find a laundromat! If ever I return to Rio I will be back to Margarida's!

We stayed in this guest house for 4 days in November 2016. The hospitality was incredible, it really felt like being part of a huge family! We were 2 and got a room with some windows on the street. We were positively surprised by the room. The pictures on booking.com were much darker that what we got!

The location is ideal for the price. 2 blocks from the beach & 1 block from the main street of Ipanema. The district is super safe.

In the morning, breakfast on the balcony outside. The on-demand scrambled eggs were "super awesome" (we would actually love to come back and have more).

All people met were extremely friendly and helpful, giving us advices on the bus to go to the Corcovado or allowing us to stay a bit more in the afternoon so we can take a shower after the beach time!

Thank you and we will definitely come back in the future!

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
