    Nice place with potential, but location not great

    The hotel has a lot of potential - the views are incredible, it's a beautiful house, Rosa (the receptionist) is lovely and helpful, the rooms are spacious and nicely laid out, but the rooms are a bit dated and could do with a revamp. The area of the hotel is its biggest downfall - there is nothing in the immediate area, and you do need Ubers. Sometimes the Ubers would cancel, or take 15 mins to arrive, because of the location. There is also a favela nearby, which in itself is NOT a problem, as I don't believe that makes it unsafe, it's just there's nothing else around so you MAY stand out as a target or just feel out of place. I had no issues, but I would literally jump into Ubers there and back. For the nice views, it was worth staying here, however if I returned, I would prefer to stay in a busier area where I could walk to local shops and amenities and not have to rely on Ubers.

    Te pasan cualquier habitación, no lo que reservas No es lo lindo que muestra la pagina WI FI de lo peor No pagaría ni la mitad de lo que cobran El taxi de Aeroporto Hotel Aeroporto, lo paga uno y NO el hotel como anuncia la pagina. Se desentienden de todo, el gerente lo único que dice, es que ellos no pueden hacer nada y que el cliente debe llamar a EE. UU para contactarse con WIKIPEDIA, todavía nadie me da una explicación realmente explicita Nunca voveria

    Ótima experiência

    Minha estadia no The Villa foi muito agradável, checkin rápido, atenderam minha solicitação quando pedi o quarto Corcovado que por sinal é muito bonito, confortável e tem uma vista de tirar o fôlego. Únicas ponderações foi que só recebemos uma única toalha no quarto e dois roupões, para ficarmos confortável precisaríamos de mais uma toalha e um tapete para o banheiro. O quarto tem hidro e consequentemente o chão molha bastante. Não solicitei mais toalhas por cãibra de só ter me atentado a isso quando a recepção já estava fechada. E Outra ponderação é o banheiro ser mais privado mas isso vai de gosto de cada pessoa. A experiência em resumo foi bastante positiva, voltaria com certeza.

    Vue imprenable

    Hôtel avec une vue splendide, de jour comme de nuit. Cependant quelques détails à améliorer dans les chambres surtout (humidité, ventilation, ...). Bon petit déjeuné et personnel agréable et Il faut également se déplacer en UBER quelque soit l’endroit où vous voulez aller (à prendre en compte).

    Lindo. Um local incrível... RECOMENDO!

    O hotel é bonito, com vista maravilhosa. Vale muito para casais! O atendimento comparado a grandes hotéis é um pouco amador, porém fui muito bem atendido. O restaurante tem pouquíssima variedade no cardápio, mas bem gostoso os pratos que comi. Como o local é pequeno, venho dar Parabéns, principalmente, para o cozinheiro (e atendente do restaurante no dia que me hospedei), muito atencioso, prestativo e simpático (além de curtir um samba maneiro na cozinha... grande abraço kkk). Alguns detalhes de acabamento não passam despercebidos a olhares rigorosos, mas são detalhes pequenos, que não prejudicam em NADA, e em nenhum fator, a estadia nesse belo local. SUPER RECOMENDO.

    Não recomendo

    Instalações mal mantidas, região perigosa e atitude grosseira por conta do gerente/dono. Inadmissível para um hotel.
