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

Stayed here for 1 night, due to flight being delayed. Hotel is a very average but acceptable 4 star hotel. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. Only complaint would be the fact that no wifi is available in the bedrooms which is unusual in today's age. Would stay again.

stayed for one night after a flight cancellation so wasn't expecting much. Staff were pretty overrun dealing with the load of guests that arrived from the flight but overall were friendly and courteous. We didn't get a chance to try out breakfast as it doesnt start until 7am and we had an 8am flight. Room itself was on the basic... More

We didnt expected to have a 4-star with pretty low fares for 2 nights in Lisbon but it just happened. The location itself is pretty okay, few mins walk from subway and bus station with convenient access to the resorts. The room was average for a 4-star but the space is definitely of good value for the price. Services were... More
