Lawrence is the place to stay in Sintra. This is an hotel part of Sintra´s culture and history, not a design hotel. The rooms are spacious with a great view, ask for room with a valley balcony, the quiet romantic decoration is a little bit spartan for some standards but I found it nice. The breakfast/restaurante room is beautifull, the... More

I am travelling quite extensively both for business and leisure. Stayed here for one night and paid 160 USD for one night. The Hotel is in a beautiful heritage building with a stunning garden behind, the location is straight in the centre of the historic old town of Sintra. The team has been very nice and helpful. Some things which... More

We had the good fortune to stay four nights at Lawrence's Hotel, the third week of May. We were upgraded to a suite, the Bela Vista, up on the fifth floor. It was incredibly charming. We arrived at night and when we got up to our immaculate room, and opened the windows, it truly was 'a beautiful view' of the... More

The hotel is in a great location near the center of town on the road to the castles. The bed was as hard as a rock and the pillows thin. we could not close the drapes as they tied back permanently. They have no parking! and narrow streets. Better to stay in Posada Queluz and take the train to Lisbon... More

We recently stayed at Lawrence's Hotel in Sintra for two nights. The charm of this hotel starts when you drive up to the door. The building is a piece of history and it is the perfect place from which to tour the historic sites of Sintra. We stayed in the Lord Byron suite. It has a sitting room with a... More

This is a very fine 4* hotel (Portugal has a different system, we stayed at a 4* in Portimao that we would consider 3* by Melbourne standards). There are lots of cozy sitting rooms with fireplaces to have a glass of port and shake off the day, the rooms are charming and the location is just a short walk from... More

Forget Tiffany's ; breakfast at Lawrence's is a five star delight. The fresh fruit, fresh pastries and cheeses, an old Portuguese style of yoghurt and a good pot of coffee make a wonderful start to the day. The hotel is traditionally comfortable and has its own unique character. The staff are friendly and attentive. We were only there for two... More

The oldest hotel on the Iberian Peninsula and close to the centre of Sintra. The reception staff at the Lawrence went beyond normal efficiency in being helpful and obliging when we had difficulty changing a taxi time for the airport. They were welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. The room - tradicioa - overlooked a lush ravine with a small... More

We stayed for 2 nights with a dinner and breakfasts included. From the moment we arrived the lovely staff couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely room with terrace overlooking the forest and up to the Moorish castle. The food was delicious and a lovely walk into town. Parking can be a problem but the staff helped us and we soon... More

This is a most pleasant hotel, perched on a hillside, but not what I consider a 5* hotel. The rooms are quite small (though we had a nice balcony). Lighting is terrible. Parking is a nightmare because of the narrow road on which it sits. On the plus side, the staff was most accommodating, the public rooms are lovely &... More
