Lisbon is a beguiling city, uniquely spread over seven hills that look over the Tegus River. Here, magnificent monasteries and charming castles sit alongside modern museums and up-to-date art, while a lively shopping scene and vibrant nightlife complete the urban tableau. All this is intersected by tramways, cobblestone lanes and tree-lined streets, making for a truly attractive and captivating stay that easily explains why this city is fast topping traveler’s wishlists.
Hotel Santa Justa lies in the thick of it all, occupying a central yet quiet position in the heart of Lisbon, just a short walk from Santa Justa Lift. Providing the perfect base for your city stay, it boasts Lisbon landmarks just outside and cool, contemporary interiors inside (a choice mix that helped it nab a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award as one of the Top 25 Hotels in Portugal).
There’s also a stylish restaurant serving up fare complemented by a considered wine list. So, don’t worry if you’ve worn yourself out meandering between monasteries – you won’t have to go far for a decent dinner.
Superior Double rooms begin at 301 square feet and offer exterior views. Many of them have balconies from which to enjoy the city vistas, which include the nearby Santa Justa Lift, São Jorge Castle and the Carmo Convent Ruins.
The hotel’s restaurant is a contemporary space, offering a good variety of both Portuguese and international dishes. The menu includes salads, risotto and pasta, fish, meat and a small selection for children. The wine list offers nearly all of its wines by both the bottle and the glass, and includes ecologically grown options too. A buffet breakfast is served daily.
Hotel Santa Justa is situated in Lisbon’s center, within easy reach of the city’s cultural attractions. The airport is around a 17-minute drive away, the bay can be reached in just five minutes by taxi, and Rossio underground station is just a five-minute walk away. You can walk to the Santa Justa Lift in a couple of minutes, fast-tracking your way up the hill.
How to Get There
Our itinerary brought us to Lisbon three times during a three week Portugal visit, each time in a different Lisbon hotel. Hotel Santa Just a was our favorite. It's small enough to be intimate; large enough to be gracious in its accommodations. Our room had a view of the Castle S. George. The location is fantastic for walking central Lisbon, and the staff are exceptional in their hospitality. The amenities were unexpected and first rate. We would look forward to more time in Lisbon, and we would look forward to more time staying at Hotel Santa Justa.
Just returned from The Hotel Santa Justa in Lisbon.
It’s a great location, looking up the avenue you can see the Santa Justa Lift.
The hotel is clean and neat, but found the rooms dark. There is only one full length mirror in the room and it’s in the bathroom. We were in room 410. See photo s’s from our balcony.
The restaurant has nice breakfast, but, the room is an unusual shape and feels cramped. We thought there may be renovations going on, so maybe they are redesigning the dining room. The outdoor dining area is nice to sit and have a drink. They have heaters that can take the chill out on a cool evening. There are no cooked to order omelettes, but the selections in the buffet are adequate.
Overall a nice hotel.
It was a great stay and such a perfect location to visit the city for the first time. The staff is so helpful and friendly. I missed a connection and was delayed a day in arriving. When I called to confirm what had happened, they assured me all was well...no worries. I booked a tour and took a brief nap beforehand. When I did not pick up my wake up call quick enough, front desk came over to make sure I was up and okay. Wow! As for the location, I loved it. It was right in the historic area, easy to navigate. It staff in the restaurant was also top notch. Very accommodating. Would definitely visit again and I highly recommend!
