The gentleman that was in charge was very polite.
BIG ants in the bathroom; the room was not super clean.
Loved the feel of the place. Essentially staying is someone’s grand home with a shared breakfast with the other guests in the morning.
It’s not a hotel so not everything is perfect
Beautiful house and very friendly owners. Massive room and spotless clean. Great breakfast with loads of choice.
My first day in Rio.The yound girl（maybe the owner）gave me an upgrade from single bed room to queen sized room.I'm very thankful.The staff were too nice.
Everything was good except the shower.It didn't work anyway though.I took shower in servers' room.They were so kind like my grandparents.
I stayed for one week in Villa Franca and absolutely loved my time there! The house is in the absolute perfect location in the Santa Teresa Neighborhood, which is one of the the most beautiful and coolest places in Rio. It is on a pretty and quiet street, yet only about a 2 minute walk to a bunch of shops and restaurants. Importantly, the area is very safe! I walked around at night many times without worry. Also, In about 10 minutes you can walk to the Gloria subway station, and only about 5 minutes further is the nightlife area of Lapa. The house itself is very tastefully decorated and everyone working there was lovely! It really felt like a home away from home. My room was clean, had fast reliable internet, and strong hot water in the shower. 10/10, I will be staying again next time I am in Rio!
With a stay at Villa Franca in Rio de Janeiro (Santa Teresa), you'll be a 4-minute drive from Sambodrome and 9 minutes from Copacabana Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, multilingual staff, and luggage storage. Limited parking is available onsite.
