Hotel Villa Rica (or VIP Exceutive Villa Rica as it's sometimes known) is a more business traveller oriented hotel. As a result, you pay a bit more but everything is of a pretty high standard.
First off, the location is good. It's very close to a metro stop and also a major train station. It's also close to the stops the aerobus and aeroshuttle use. To find the hotel from the stop continue walking down the street from the stop ( walk in the same direction the bus was going in). When yo0u get to the corner, turn right. You should see the hotel in the not-far distance. Walk a block, then turn left and cross the street. It's 20-30m from the street corner.
The rooms are pretty big by European standards and you do get free internet access. Make sure to walk with your own network cable though as they charge you 3.50 euros for buying one. There's no wifi.
Breakfast is pretty expansive but not cheap. There is a small grocery around the corner from the hotel for those so inclined. The hotel has 2 restaurants (other than where breakfast is served) - one that's pretty upscale and a cheaper one. I only ate at the cheaper one and wouldn't really recommend it. My soup came cold and the other food was pretty tasteless.
Staff in the hotel are reasonably friendly and efficient. I had no issues with them at all. Overall, I would recommend staying at this hotel.
