I loved everything about this hotel. We were given the room at the very top which allowed for a 360 degree view of Cascais. It was very centrally located, with an easy walk to and from both the train and bus station. Most of the staff spoke English well, and were extremely helpful as we navigated our way around the...

The lady at the reception was excellent, informative and friendly. The place itself was not what we expected from the Trip Advisor reviews. We had previously stayed at a 2 star in Sintra which was kept to a higher standard then here. The fact that we got here and it was raining meant that we spent more time in the... More

We stayed here over the Christmas period. This Hotel is not 5 star, but it makes up for this by having great character. Rooms are very clean and cosy. A big welcome and large open fire await you at Reception. The Dining Room has to be seen to be believed, after all this building was the Kings country residence. Same... More

It is not often you get to sleep in a former kings bedroom - yes you can say that in all honesty. This is a warm,very friendly family run hotel which is definitely not main stream. You dine in a room with floor to ceiling frescoes, and you can stroll to look at the integral chapel again with its ornate... More

I would like to say that I spent 4 months in Portugal working and I also stayed for 4 months in hotel Solar Dom Carlos. The owner, Innes was very kind and offered me a very good deal in a moment when I couldn't find any accommodation. Whenever I needed any kind of help there was someone that could help... More

My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights in October, fantastic location a few minutes’ walk from the Marina and restaurants. The hotel itself is a bit tricky to find in the car due to very narrow streets and one way systems but well worth the effort. The room was very spacious for two people, bathroom was large had...

We spent a couple of nights here. If you are used to modern hotels this may not be for you, but we were glad to have stayed in a building with real history. If this place was invested in and turned into a boutique hotel people like me would not be able to afford to stay here. The painted dining... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now and if you're looking to travel on a budget then it ticks all the boxes. The rooms are spacious, clean and contain a fridge which is always nice. The decor is a little tired but I suppose it adds to the charm and the staff are always very friendly and helpful. The breakfast... More

Once again I booked the hotel on the strength of the reviews, & the clise proximity to the town & beaches. Initially I was disappointed, we had room 31 right at the top no lift or hep offered to move our luggage to the room. Some aspects of the room were poor, light bulb not working and mostly no frosting... More
