The Hotel Da Estrela is located in the quieter Lisbon suburb of Santa Isabel next to the Lisbon School of Hotels and Tourism. A former school itself, it uses a classroom theme throughout the hotel with information chalked on slate boards and a reception area that feels very much like the Headmaster’s study. The rooms are furnished in a modern and somewhat minimalistic style but I soon warmed to the quirkiness of it all. It is clear that students from the nearby School of Tourism are being used to supplement hotel staff but that in no way detracts from the overall quality of service. The hotel restaurant has an excellent breakfast and the evening meals were very reasonable, with chefs “marked” on their work by allowing guests to pay for dishes with an amount of their choice between upper and lower limits. The hotel is a little away from the centre and appears a little eccentric at first but after 5 days there I was thoroughly enjoying myself. I would strongly recommend the hotel for those who need a change from the usual corporate hotel experience.
