Villy was created to make it easier for people to plan vacations and trips to places they’ve never been before. Rather than spending hours researching hotels, Villy gives travelers a way to quickly learn about the best neighborhoods in cities around the globe. The company has partnered with travel experts to bring its users exclusive deals on selected hotels, as well.
Select the city you’re planning to visit, and begin “discovering” what Villy has to offer. To refine its suggestions, Villy invites you to select the things you want to see and do while traveling—for example, to shop or visit museums—along with who is traveling and how much money you hope to spend on a hotel. Based on this information, Villy will recommend neighborhoods for you, ranked with scores that are based on a combination of your preferences and “expert” opinions. For more detailed results, enter your vacation dates along the top panel. You can review a neighborhood list, and see all the hotels Villy has recommended in one place by clicking on the “Hotels” tab.
Villy’s integration with Trip Advisor lets you see the average rating for each hotel it recommends, while Villy’s travel experts provide detailed lists of all the best things to do in each neighborhood. Users who are interested in sharing hidden gems in their own cities can apply to become experts on Villy’s platform.
