Expert review of Inspira Santa Marta Hotel

No frills or fuss – just a slick, stylish and ever-so-cool hotel in the middle of Lisbon.

An ultra-modern, urban and eco-conscious hotel in a convenient part of Lisbon. I really like this place for it’s simple, clean and stylish ambiance.

Location: 

In the thick of the Avenida hotel district, you’re yards from the offices of the commercial district and a five-minute stroll to the historic shopping districts of Baixa and Chiado. The only need for public transport or taxis is if you’re heading out to Belem, otherwise everything is within walking distance.

Bedrooms: 

All are designed according to the rules of Feng Shui and guests are encouraged to choose a room according to their birth element. This will attain the ‘ultimate harmonious experience’, I’m told. If you can get past the ‘alternative' sales pitch, you’ll find the rooms are bright, airy and very pleasant indeed. Floor-to-ceiling windows, retro wallpaper and Eames armchairs make everything look like a front cover of an interiors magazine.

Public areas: 

The Chiado Lounge and lobby are all very retro-Scandinavian. A shuttered beech-wood skylight looms above white cube-shaped armchairs, giant ball-shaped lampshades and multi-coloured bookshelves.

Eating and drinking: 

The restaurant, Open, is very much a 21st-century brasserie with its dull spot-lighting, black-wood chairs and light-wood tables. It serves light and tasty Mediterranean food such as pasta, salads and grilled fish dishes. It also has cooking workshops and wine tasting evenings.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a decent spa with a sauna, steam bath, Jacuzzi and a small gym.

Service: 

All of the staff are as bright, young and enthusiastic as the hotel itself.
