I guess one of the best places to stay in Rio. Beautif surroundings of Santa Teresa district - nice bars with great atmosphere, cozy streets.
The Villa itself is a mixture of the interiors of 19th century and modern equipment. Tasty breakfasts, super common areas - indoor and outdoor. English speaking helpful staff.
I can say, it's one of the best places I stayed at.
You can get to the center by bus or by taxi - not more tham 30-40 min from any attraction.More
