Bottom Line

The 55-room Hotel Santa Justa is a four-pearl boutique property in the historic center of Lisbon, within walking distance of several top tourist sights. The hotel lacks amenities like a fitness center, spa, or pool, but guests praise its quiet, comfortable, and sexy rooms, which have high-end touches like marble bathrooms with glass doors, Krups espresso-makers, and free minibars. The hotel has a bar and a restaurant serving regional fare. Travelers seeking something with more on-site features might want to check out the Heritage Av Liberdade, which has a gym and a pool -- but rates are more expensive.

Scene

Upscale boutique property with stylish interiors attracting tourists, especially couples

The pale yellow stucco and masonry facade of Hotel Santa Justa, on a busy corner overlooking a cobblestone street, contrasts its contemporary interiors. The lobby features a glass-covered white reception desk under tiny silver pendant lights, and cayenne-painted walls adorned with silver framed mirrors. The contemporary furnishings include crushed orange velvet fabric and dark leather upholstery, dark-wood tables, and gray silk shaded pendant lights. At the bar, stools upholstered in pale leather pull up to a thick marble counter. Niches of seating in arched, stone-columned spaces extend the lounge and adjacent restaurant whose tables include street-facing views and Old World touches like fresh flowers and silver candlesticks. Art in the hotel reflects the city's design history with black-and-white photo murals of various architectural flourishes.

Rooms

Chic rooms with modern amenities and marble bathrooms

Rooms at the Hotel Santa Justa are quiet due to serious soundproofing, and stylish thanks to their modern decor. Large, tufted headboards, and sleek black furnishings give the spaces a sexy feel. The floors are light wood with cayenne-colored area rugs that match bed throws, while white walls and bedding make the bright hues pop. Large windows are framed by long, silver silk black-out drapes and sheers. Some rooms have balconies that overlook the pedestrian street below, while others overlook the city. Black-and-white photos of city icons and architectural motifs adorn the walls. All rooms have air-conditioning, Krups espresso-makers, 40-inch LED flat-screen TVs, safes, irons/ironing boards, and a variety of electrical sockets to accommodate international travelers. Minibars are stocked with free water, juice, soda, and beer. Free cakes and small bottles of Port upon arrival are a nice touch, as are the nightly pillow chocolates. Marble bathrooms have glass and marble shelving, prettily packaged toiletries, hairdryers, and lighted magnifying mirrors. In addition to the glass wall shower, there are rainfall and powerhead fittings and modern fixtures. Some rooms have jetted tubs. Some guests complain that the rooms can be a bit dark, especially on gray days.
