33 Rooms, Private and Shared
All neighbors from around the world welcome
Villa charges guests by the night by the bed. You are not paying for a room–you are paying for whether your bed is in a private or shared room. Guests in your room will incur additional charges.
You cannot have guests stay over without Villa’s knowledge. If you have a guest over, you must pay per night. Charges will be added to your room fees for all guests. (Guests do not pay Villa—they are added to your personal bill.) All guests must adhere to Villa’s policies.
At this time, Villa International will only accept reservation requests from guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. You will be asked for documentation of vaccination at check-in.
We welcome guests of all ages. Most of our guests are young professionals and scholars between 22 and 40. Guests under 18 are welcome but are required to have a parent or legal guardian present. Guests aged 16 and older will be charged rent.
Length of stay
We ask that guests request a reservation of a private room for no longer than six months. After six months guests are asked to share a room or find outside lodging. Villa is meant as a safe and friendly “landing space” for international guests traveling to Atlanta for work or study. Once you become familiar with the community, you will be expected to find permanent housing so that we can continue to welcome newcomers.

This online system is not connected to actual availability, so please complete a reservation request even if the room type you desire does not show as available. We work to accept as many reservations as possible. All requests will be confirmed within 3 business days OR we will email you regarding availability. Your room is not guaranteed until you receive a confirmation.
Villa has a 72-hour cancellation policy. If you cancel with less than 3 days’ notice, a cancellation fee of up to $85 per night will be charged for up to 3 nights.
Villa will not tolerate harassment by any person based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, disability status, or for any other reason whatsoever. Harassment is defined as unwanted, unwelcomed, and uninvited behavior that demeans, threatens, or offends the victim and results in a hostile environment for the victim.

Villa strives to maintain an environment where guests can work and live free of harassment. In keeping with this policy, sexual harassment is specifically strictly forbidden. Any concerns should be brought to the attention of the director or front desk manager.
