Villa Franca is a little oasis in Harare with beautiful secure grounds and nice Italian restaurant within walking distance. The beds are comfortable. The staff is helpful and kind. We stayed one night and appreciated the great value. Casa Mia is a five minute walk down King George Avenue and has delicious pizza and appetizers along with great play area...

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when driving to the gated walls, so I was pleasantly surprised with this calm and tranquil place. The staff was very friendly & welcoming, rooms spacious and clean and it is obvious that the owners and management pay a lot of attention to detail. It was a very pleasant stay overall.

I stayed at the Villa Franca early January 2015. Rooms are tastefully decorated, extremely clean and very comfortable. There is a nice garden and reliable WIFI too. The staff were kind and the food was good. Will definitely be staying there again on my next trip to Harare.

This is an excellent place to stay. Quiet, a bit outside of the center of Harare in a nice neighborhood. I travel about 50% of my time for business and wish I could always have Villa Franca waiting for me in the next destination. It is a fantastic choice. (Note: dinners must be ordered ahead of time.)
