I had a short stay at the Inspira Santa Marta Hotel in September of 2011. Although I had a pleasant stay, and I found the service quite pleasant and efficient, there was an issue with the rooms. Others have mentioned the unique setup of the bathroom, which actually prompted me to book, because I like a modern and unique design. Unfortunately, the execution of that design has some flaws. The flooring in the bathroom is some kind of woven cloth, and the shower had wood planks suspended over the basin. For me, this design created a distinct smell of mold and mildew. It was unmistakable.
I did mention this to the staff, and they did what they could, but it really isn't something they can just wipe down.
At any rate, the rest of my room was ridiculously roomy, and well appointed. The location is excellent, and right where you want to be in Lisbon. The lobby is modern and the staff excellent. I feel conflicted with this review, because I really want to recommend this hotel, but the smell of mold and mildew in my room prevents me.
