We came here during the Web Summit and stayed 6 nights. We paid more than 100€ per night for the room. When we arrived at the reception we were welcomed by two very impolite and bored receptionists at around 1pm. The hotel looks from a dead era, the lobby is huge and the turning door at the entrance was not... More

This is a cool hotel in a nice neighborhood. The place is well connected and is good for the tourists. There is not much to see around the hotel but the place is a few stops away from downtown. The hotel staff was helpful. The room was clean and so were the toilet and the bathroom. The complimentary breakfast was... More

The hotel itself looks good but needed some serious renovation / upgrades... the corridor carpet needed to be changed. The same could be said about the room carpets. there were damaged walls, torn wallpapers in the... More

Great hotel, very comfortable and well located. Staff is very professional. Recepcionist Diana is very kind. I was looking for beautiful sights in Lisboa without too many people, and she gave me really good directions.

We needed a hotel in that general area and the Villa Rica turned out to be a good choice. Modern and clean, with an underground parking garage. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was included and there is also a gift shop and coffee shop in the hotel. It is a long way from the Bairrio Alto where the nightlife... More

A decent quality 4* hotel. My twin bedded room was a good size, clean, and with ample storage, two armchairs, a coffee table, working wi-fi,and fair desk space (though the chair leg snapped when I sat on it!). The bathroom was also a good size with a shower in the bath rather than separate but of good quality. The hotel... More

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.
