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
The hotel is in the city center so it’s easy to get to all the landmarks whether by walking or Uber! We also did a I Go Portugal private tour to Sintra because of a flyer we saw in the lobby. The tour picked us up from the hotel lobby and dropped us back to the lobby after a very eventual and exciting day. The complimentary breakfast buffet in the morning was great, had everything expect my husband was disappointed there was no omelette station but it’s understandable as that would be hard to accommodate. The room was very nice and we received a complimentary upgrade, my husband and I had a lot of fun with the blinds in the standing shower which was a unique feature. They replenished the mini bar daily and it was all complimentary, which was nice because it was so hot outside so we always grabbed a water bottle to take with us on our walks. We asked for a later checkout which they extended to 1pm, which was really considerate because our flight is at 6pm. We were also able to check in early at about 11:30am without even informing them of early arrival so that was really amazing because a lot of the time they tell you to come back. We were able to check in and relax and unpack after traveling. While the area surrounding hotel is very commercial with lots of restaurants that didn’t seem all that appetizing, we did find a few local gems that we enjoyed. We really enjoyed our night walks around the hotel. It was a great stay!
It lies in the heart of Lisbon's Baixa district and is in proximity to all traffic connections: bus tour, tram tour, metro station and public buses and tram.
Staff members are overwhelmingly friendly and helpful. Room (double room in building 1) is spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent with a vast variety of choices.
Santa Justa is in the heart of Lisbon, 2-3 mins walk from the Rua Augusta Arch and Main Street. 12 mins walk from the castle and right at the doorstep of all the fabulous restaurants and cafe’s.
The hotel itself is perfection, so very clean, very modern and tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and always there to answer any questions. We received a welcome gift of Portuguese pastries in our room and also a farewell gift - These little details added to our stay.
Hotel is also very reasonable price wise.
I loved this hotel and I will definitely be back.
