“Amazing place to visit an amazing city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Amazing hotel in the heart of Ipanema, with a magnificant service. Great tips from the staff in terms of places to visit, restaurants, etc. Benjamin helped us in organizing our 5-day trip in Rio, including a visit to Favela Rochina (if you have the chance, please do it!). I will repeat for sure! Rooms and cleanliness also perfect.

Casa Mosquito is an exquisite intimate botique hotel in a great location right betwen Ipanema and Copacabana. Very central, but secluded from the crowd. It is beautiful with an exceptional staff, always present but descreet. When you enter the modern hotel the white drapery blowing on the porch overlooking the streets of Ipanema feels like an oasis from the city streets. We ate breakfast each morning at the hotel in the private and intimate garden.

Minor con (in the interest of balance) - we heard a little too much from the dogs in the neighborhood, but this part of being in Rio and minor compared to an overall fantastic experience at Casa Mosquito.

The hidden away boutique hotel is warm and friendly and just a turn up the hill from the Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. While one might, from a distance, imagine she'd like to be on the beach, in fact -- once you come to Rio -- you will see it's better to be a couple footsteps away. Close to the best restaurant -- Brazilinho (get the full meal, with whatever meat and the collard greens) -- and the fruit market. David at the front desk is a gem, as is the director Benjamin. This is definitely the place for younger, hipper Ipanema travelers, however it is warm and friendly and welcoming for all. I just wished I had someone to invite over for drinks on the patio. They have a small table with green pillows I really wished I could show off. Eat dinner at the long table inside, it's the prettiest.

Room Tip: If you like to bathe, let them know when you book. Some rooms have a shower and some a bath.

Very special little hotel! I returned to Rio months later after having stayed there a week and rented an apartment but enjoyed breakfast most mornings at Casa Mosquito in its beautiful and tranquil garden. Best place in the city to relax, enjoy sun or beat a hangover. Spent many warm evenings on the front patio throwing back MANY caipirinhas as well! Either to stay or just lounge with friends Casa Mosquito is my favorite place!

Room Tip: I slept in the "chocolate" room! has a super sexy chocolate shower and the best view ever!

Had a wonderful five night stay during Carnival in this charming hotel. The owners and staff were all wonderful and so attentive. I had a wonderful room with a covered terrace with views of Sugar Loaf, the bay and favela - including from my shower. It was hard to leave this place as it feels very much like staying at a fabulous friend's house in a real neighborhood with the charm of the real Rio. Ladies beware high heels should be left at home as the walk up the hill is on a cobbled road - anyway Havaianas and flat sandals are the go in Rio. Everything is a close walk - beach, cafes, shops, metro, etc. Have the hotel set you up with Marco for some of the best private tour guiding in Rio. Cannot wait to come back soon.

Room Tip: Book early and ask for the rooms with a view to the beach.

I have to say we had high hopes of Casa Mosquito before we set off on our travels and our expectations were exceeded! We searched for ages for hotels in Rio, but when we saw C.M. it ticked all the boxes on paper and was something different to the standard chain hotels which were on offer mainly in Copacobana.

The day before arrival, we were emailed by the hotel to confirm when we would be arriving in Rio and whether we needed a transfer, so they could start preparations for getting our room ready. We were informed that our room may not be ready till after 12, which was fine although we were arriving in Rio at 6am so we needed to think of something to do to the kill the time.

However, on arrival, they managed to turn the room around and get it ready for us, so we pretty much checked straight in at around 8am which was fantastic!

The room was brilliant, and had a balcony looking over towards Copacabana beach, sugarloaf mountain and also a local Favela which were told is Police Certified and perfectly safe to walk past (as it proved to be).

The staff at the hotel were fantastic and extremely helpful, most notably Benjamin the manager and Rafael the barman (who made fantastic Caipirinha!!).

I highly recommend anyone visiting Rio to stay here and take advantage of the convenient location so close to Ipanema and Copacabana.
