    location in the very heart of Rio in Lapa,breakfast served in rooms

  • Couple
    5.0

    The staff is very friendly. Our flight was at 8 pm and we checked out at 12 pm but the hotel let us stay in the room till 6 pm (using showers and so on).

    The room was not very clean and I had to ask to change it. The hotel manager changed the room with no problems and the new ones was slightly better but still not clean up to European standards.

    Excellent location. Next to Santa Teresa and inside the nightlife of the Lapa district. The tube station is 5 minutes safe walking, so in 15-20 minutes you can be at Maracana or at Ipanema. The room was clean and the personel very helpful (although some of them spoke only portuguese).Value for money.

    The 3rd day we had to change room. The second room had a smell, but this was not a very serious problem

    Hotel Villa Rica is placed in a good position to visit the city of Rio de Janeiro, just next to Lapa neighbourhood, where on Friday and Saturday there is the most colourful night life.

    My room was a little bit small, a very negative thing was that the refrigerator was just next to the bed and a bit noisy

  • Single
    5.0

    Room size was ok.. bed is good. staff is helpfull but not good in english. Shower is good.

    Location: not very good. I think some people would not feel safe on the streets just outside the hotel. No safe in rooms

  • Group of friends

    I found the staff very friendly and helpful. When asked about getting to a tourist site they explained in good detail and showed the way to catch the right bus etc. I felt secure stayng there. I will return.

    I will say I had a great eperience staying there and would repeat a stay for sure for the price.

    Friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfasts served in room, solidly reliable wi-fi service

    Incredibly noisy (room was beside an airwell with ten air-conditioning fans all out of sync with each other, and also next to elevator - could only sleep with earplugs and noise-cancelling headphones combined); room was comfortable but cramped - no desk or workspace; location is close to city centre but in fairly rough area (Lapa) with open prostitution etc nearby - caution definitely required...

    It's situated just some minutes walk from Bairro da Lapa, which is historical and very near to downtown, where there are a lot of important museums, theaters, etc. In Lapa, in the evening, there are a lot of nice restaurants with live music performance.

    Wi-Fi internet is very slow, even though it's nice they have one. Breakfast, served in the room, could be better. Bread, for example, is very tiny. If you stay more than one night you'll have the same breakfast everyday, they don't offer anything different. Hotel needs a general lifting but it's really not too bad and for the price you can't complain.

    Hotel Villa Rica was basic, clean and comfortable. It is a good option if you are on a budget. It is in a lively area and so there was noise from outside, but this was not an issue for me. It is on the edge of the nicer area of Catete but I did not find it dangerous or threatening.

  • Couple

    This hotel is in a convenient area located a short walk from the metro station. The area is a little bit dodgy after dark but it´s fine if you use common sense and not carry anything too valuable. The staff are perfectly helpful and the room was nice although the decor is a little strange. The breakfast was great!

  • Single

    Staff is very friendly and helpful (even though not speaking English), very close to the beach, very quiet place to stay

    Facilities are very basic, old furniture, noisy air conditioner; far from city center

  • Single

    location near the metro station and in the sentre of the city.clean rooms.

  • Couple
    5.0

    Staff is friendly. Hotel location is very good, because it's in the old/historical part of Rio, but only for confident people (who like to see cities as they are and not just their artificial touristic parts) then you might also see some ugly things and dubious people. If you are open-minded it should be ok. We had no problems with that.

    Hotel needs urgently to be renovated!!!

  • Single
    8.8

    its very cheap, great hotel, kind and helpful staff who will try speak english with you and great relaxing room.

    beeing in lapa, it can be a 'iffy' suberb if your stupid and scream english etc... but everything fine no problem.

  • Single
    7.4

    If you want to enjoy the nightlife in Lapa, Villa Rica is an excellent choice. Walking distance to establishments such as Rio Scenarium and Club Democraticos makes it a good base camp for a couple of nights of Brazilian music and dancing. I had very low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The staff do not speak english but they are friendly and very helpful.
