The room was quite large, but it was the only positive. The hotel needs to be refurbished, the spa looked dirty and the saunas in very bad condition. Even worse, the room was facing a building yard, it had no balcony and no fresh air. Quite far from city center... The breakfast was terrible and the waiters so bored and... More

Room is in good condition, very clean. Location of the hotel is quite good. A little bit noisy: there is railway station near the hotel. But from another side this is an additional option - you can reach many places around Lisbon by train.

We went to this hotel to have business meetings and the facilities were good. They provided food and refreshment which were of high quality and everyone enjoyed it. The staff were helpful and the rooms were larger though there wasn't natural light into our rooms.

Our room was spacious and clean. Didn't like the frosted glass between the shower and beds as you could sort of see through it when someone took a shower. Nice foyer as you walk in. Breakfast had a good selection and was tasty but needed to be available at a warmer temperature as it was only luke warm. The hotel... More

The VIP Executive Villa Rica Hotel in Lisbon is a decent hotel in terms of service and rooms. However with no coffee/tea making facilities in the room and their policy towards equipping the minibar is simply not up to par. This hotel cares not about the convenience of the guests, but about the convenience of their operations. Seeing there was... More

Clean hotel with welcoming staff. Rooms are spacious and clean, it is a fairly well place. Views are not amazing - but this is a city business hotel. Good location and near some restaurants and the airport.

Had to cancel my booking as the hotel couldn't handle a midnight check in. I guess VIP's don't arrive late in Lisbon. Quite surprised that a city hotel offering its services to international guests, so near the airport has such a 1970's attitude to service. What would they do if a flight was delayed?

This is not a good 4* hotel. It has a good potential, but needs (urgent) remodeling. The rooms are spacious, but have carpet and are a bit dusty (we even found a small bug in our bed); however, the bathroom is spacious. The breakfast is ok, but nothing special (has eggs, bacon, fruit, etc). It gives free wifi. It is... More
