We stayed here 4 nights in April. Overall, it was a pretty good experience. Don`t expect something spectacular. It`s an average 4 star hotel. The rooms are clean, convenient and spacious. The minibar was empty, but that`s good, because you can fill it with drinks from the Continente supermarket next door. WIFI is free, the bathroom has a good shower.... More

A clean, simple and efficient business hotel, quite close to ISCTE Business School that I visited last summer...Nice hearty buffet breakfast that fills you up and prepares you for a busy day...close to metro station and Continente Supermarket...

It is a good and typical business hotel. The room was really confortable and breakfast it was normal (buffet breakfast). The hotel situation was very good: you have taxis, buses and a underground stop very closed.

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
