I like this place because the people are helpful, you can get into town via the metro and it is VERY near the airport. It is also close to the University where I came to do some work. It is not particularly stylish and the breakfast isn't great - but the pool is very good for a hotel. No great... More

We got to stay here for a night as our flight was cancelled. The rooms were good. Wifi connection was terrible in two of our three rooms. The "health club" was not good. A lot of light bulbs were out, the showers were out of soap or broken, facilities were out of order. The sauna was functional but really worn.... More

This is a typical business/group tour hotel somewhat away from the city centre but conveniently close to a metro station. During the week the evening meal is only served to tour groups and the breakfast is expensive. The facilities are average but the whirlpool/hot tub had a very old notice announcing that it was out of order, and so was... More

Nothing Special and exciting, just a place to stay in the City Center. You can reach all different parts of the City easily from this place. The rooms are a bit worn out. But for the Price it was absolutely acceptable.

Villa Rica is a decent hotel near the university and quite convenient for conferences/business. It is less convenient for sightseeing as it is quite far from all the main attractions of Lisbon, but it is a walking distance from one of the nicest museums I have been to recently, Gulbenkian Museum. It is also close to the bullring, where we... More

The breakfast buffet in this hotel is worse than you can imagine. No real coffee, only instant which has a terrible taste. Juice is diluted and watery. Bread and cakes are dry beyond description. Bacon looks boiled rather than fried and sausages look like baby fingers left to dry in the sun. Not even the scrambled eggs is worth eating.... More

I stayed for one night in a business trip. This hotel works well; it does everything you would expect from a 4 star establishment. It provides a reasonable breakfast; the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is efficient and friendly. Location is good too. Very good value for money

This is a basic hotel but it does the job. Room size is good. Room amenities are basic. The rooms certainly need to be freshened. The carpets and other upholstery are worn out. The plastic shower curtain was disgusting, in need of replacement. It is very basic, but this in agreement with its price. It offers a good breakfast and... More

Stayed 2 nights with my husband. Spacious room, confy bed, enormous windows though not much of a view. No wifi in the room, only in the lobby. Indoor swimming pool was really pleasant, there is also a sauna and a jacuzzi. Plenty of variety on offer for breakfast, but the room were it was served was in the basement and... More

A few minutes walk from the Entrecampos metro station and about 11 km from the airport. Rooms are spacious and include tolietries, but NO WIFI (only in the lobby). Only 1 pillow per person and the curtains do not fully darken the room. Didn't have breakfast as we had a very early flight. I have stayed in other 4 star... More
