Inspira Santa Marta Hotel

Why We Love This Hotel

  • One of the best new hotels in 2011, according to Condé Nast Traveler
  • The location is excellent — two blocks from Lisbon's main street
  • The restaurant offers a well-priced set lunch on weekdays
  • Cozy rooms are designed around the five elements of feng shui


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 Conde Nast Traveler, which likened the property to a "funky loft in San Francisco."

The stylish and well-priced hotel also boasts an excellent location on a quiet cobbled street, just two blocks from Lisbon's main street, the Avenida da Liberdade, and two stops from Baixa-Chiado station in the city center. 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 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, and is 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.
