Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel

Cais do Sodré's sophisticated boutique stay

Looks can be deceiving, especially in Lisbon’s trendy Cais do Sodré district, where historic buildings retain an edgy appearance that belies the vibrant food scene, exciting nightlife and luxurious accommodations that lie within. A prime example can be found at Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel, where a simple white exterior punctuated by a few red awnings hides a slew of sophisticated spaces designed for comfort.

Step inside the boutique hotel to discover a sleek aesthetic that expertly fuses modernity with Lisbon’s storied past. An upscale dining room takes décor cues from Portugal’s seafaring history and a swanky lounge built around a preserved section of a 14th-century stone wall invites both curiosity and tranquility.

This blend of past and present with fun, thoughtful complimentary perks like a self-serve machine in the lobby for an “ice cream emergency” and a daily happy hour with drinks and bites make for a chic getaway in the heart of one of Lisbon’s coolest neighborhoods.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel’s prime location in the heart of the trendy Cais do Sodré area makes it an ideal stay for those looking to explore the city’s scenic waterfront, snack around Time Out Market Lisboa or experience Pink Street’s lively nightlife.
  • Searching for a break from the bustling streets of Lisbon? Retreat to the luxury hotel’s chic Sense Spa, complete with a hydrotherapy circuit featuring a Turkish bath, a salt room for halotherapy and a brisk Scottish shower.
  • Chef Artur Roldão helms the kitchen at upscale Porter Bistro, where Portuguese ingredients are transformed into simple yet elegant plates. Savor fresh cod and clams dressed with dill olive oil or a tender filet of beef complemented by a rich Madeira wine sauce.
  • Before heading out on the town, stop by 146 Bar for a beautifully prepared tipple. A themed menu features cocktails inspired by the seven deadly sins, such as Greed (Johnnie Walker Gold Label, Aperol, citronella and rhubarb cordial and bitters) and Wrath (spicy chili-infused tequila, Cointreau and pineapple juice).
  • Get to know Lisbon like a local by joining one of Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel’s two free daily walking tours. The complimentary tours, which have different routes, run 2.5 hours and start at the hotel’s medieval wall.

The Rooms

  • The boutique Lisbon hotel boasts 67 rooms and eight suites, each with homey touches like plush pillows, heavy curtains and a soft chevron-patterned throw on every bed.
  • Due to the 18th-century Pomabline-style architecture of the building, each of Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel’s accommodations is unique in size and layout. All feature earthy, neutral-toned décor to help you wind down at the end of the day.
  • For the best city views, book one of the two top-floor suites. A cozy couch and vintage-style armchairs help you to soak up that vista in supreme comfort.
  • One thing that all 75 accommodations have in common is a luxe chromotherapy shower. Select a hue to soak up the supposed healing benefits of the colored light: red for a morning pick-me-up, blue to wind down, yellow for joy or green to relax after a long day of sightseeing.
  • Rooms come with Nespresso machines and free minibars stocked with drinks.
