Bottom Line

The 89-room Inspira is a funky, boutique option among the many hotels situated in the area right off of lively Avenida da Liberdade. The sleek, modern hotel design includes elements of Feng Shui; the common areas of the hotel, including the lobby, restaurant, and bar, have an open feel with clusters of bright furniture that add a punch of color. Rooms are designed with the natural elements in mind -- but the different room categories, such as water, fire, and metal, are pretty similar aside from comforters and throw pillows. The room decor is simple, and some furniture, such as the new-age desks, seem like it came from IKEA. But rooms are high-tech, with large, mounted flat-screen TVs, plug-and-play stations, and free Wi-Fi. Frosted glass bathroom walls, however, may not be family-friendly. The hotel also features a lounge area, several well-equipped meeting rooms, a spa, and a small fitness center.

Location

Just off of lively Avenida da Liberdade

Map of Inspira Santa Marta Hotel

The Inspira has a great, central location for tourists. Just off of Avenida da Liberdade, the hotel is within walking distance of the Avenida metro stop and the heart of Baxia, Chiado, and Bairro Alto neighborhoods.

Avenida de Liberdade, Lisbon's main artery, is a tree-lined street packed with high-end hotels and shops. But Barrio Alto is also a bustling area in Lisbon. Popular due to its lively nightlife spots, it is also home to vintage and antique shops. The cobblestone streets are often crowded with people, as are the area's bars and restaurants. Largely spared during the earthquake, Barrio Alto has some beautiful historic monuments and sights. Like in other areas of Lisbon, visitors should be careful in Barrio Alto at night, especially on the side streets; they have a reputation for loitering drug dealers.

Nearby Alfama, a Moorish area, is a fishing town with great fado clubs. Like Barrio Alto, it can also be a bit dangerous at nights. Baxia, the financial district, attracts mainly business travelers. But it does have good shopping, particularly for gold and silver. West of Baxia, Chiado is the main shopping district.
