little gem in Ipanema. great staff (very polite an always ready to help).

one doesn't feel like in a hotel but in a very stylish residence.

the hotel is conveniently located : 5 minutes from Ipanema tube station, from shops and supermarkets and further 5 minutes from Ipanema beach. Casa Mosquito is also 10 minutes away from the Lagoon.

Note that the hotel doesn't allow guests to bring food from outside. But no need to the mini bar and menu are not over priced as in most hotels. Would definitely come back

great bed, room and shower. great staff, very nice common area. would definitely go again.
only caution, steep stairs to get in and on a hill. otherwise. very pleasant. my local friends were impressed and are planning to return themselves. its a different Rio hotel stay, not on beach (10 min walk) and in a neighborhood ( formerly dangerous). was safe from my experience and no issue.

I would recommend this place for a 3/4 night stay..I was there just for one night, way too short!!! Excellent service, Benjamin is a gem, helpful, discreet and efficient ... The room was really great, with open bathroom and great large shower.. Some blocks up the hill would haev helped for the view..But definitely a place to stay..and NO mosquito there...! Excellent caipirinha...

I really enjoyed our 3-day stay at Casa Mosquito! The location is indeed a bit on a somewhat hilly road, but it is very close to the beach, Ipanema restaurants and metro station. Design of the common areas is immaculate and very stylish! We had a couple of afternoon caipi's on the terrace overlooking the (pacified) favela, so pretty.

Service was great, loved the bathroom and provided amenities (although they weren't re-stocked during our stay) and nice bed. Room size was OK, with cute little terrace. Breakfast prices are quite steep but there are many 'suco' places in the area to get your breakfast. Also heard the dogs barking, bit annoying, but what can you do about it.

I would definitely stay here again (especially in ten months time when the roof top swimming pool is ready ;-))!

I had a very nice stay in Casa Mosquito. The interiors are very stylish and cosy, with a touch of sophistication and cosmopolitan character. The service was just great, everybody from Casa Mosquito was so helpful. The location is also very convenient, a few minutes walk to Ipanema, also considered to be safe as guarded by Police arund. I also loved the room, balcony overlooking lush green of palms, very comfortable bed, toiletries of natural ingredients, space. It is a stylish and beautiful oasis in the center of Rio.
