Behind a traditional façade, the Inspira Santa Marta Hotel hides a striking lobby, Feng Shui interiors and eco-friendly principles. The property has won praise for the professionalism of its staff and was named one of the best new hotels in 2011 by Condé Nast Traveller, which likened the property to a "funky loft in San Francisco".

Surprisingly for such a stylish and well-priced hotel, it also boasts an excellent location on a quiet cobbled street, just two blocks from Lisbon's main street, the Avenida de Liberdade, and two stops from Baixa/Chiado station in the city centre. It's 15 minutes on foot from the lush Botanical Gardens, which date back to the 19th century, a 20-minute walk to the waterfront, and a half hour hike uphill to Saint George's Castle and the waterfront. If you're not up for the hike, you can take a tram.

Inside, there's a small spa which is kitted out with a sauna, steam room, hot tub and a compact gym,plus a games room -- complete with billiards table. The modern Mediterranean restaurant serves classic dishes such as fish with lemon and pea risotto, pork confit with potato gnocchi and roasted parsnip, and a good choice for vegetarians and gluten-free diets. There's also a well-priced set lunch on weekdays.

Rooms are minimalist and designed around the five Feng Shui elements: water, earth, fire, metal and wood. All come with in-room Nespresso machines, complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water (replenished every day), and glass-walled bathrooms fitted with rainfall showers. Standard rooms can be on the smaller side so opt for an upgrade if you need more space.

From the press:
  • "From the long lobby lined with pretty wooden-slatted windows that let the Lisbon light stream in to the feng shui guest rooms made edgy with concrete floors and glass-walled showers etched with mod shapes, the interior is all West Coast hip" -- Condé Nast Traveller
