The hotel has character and is nicely set outside of the main tourist hub which mainly features swarms of pensioners walking around looking dazed. When we arrived we were given the disabled room which was not great. However it did turn into an added benefit as after sleeping on the rock hard bed my back welcomed the disabled facilities. We...

We visited the hotel for dinner having read good reviews. We were not disappointed, food was good and the service outstanding. The special chocolate cake on the dessert menu is an absolute must for any chocolate lover. My husband is hoping the chef will share the recipe.. Here's hoping :)

We stayed at this hotel because it was well known for its character. We also took with us family visiting from England. The standard room was nice, but dominated by the pine four poster bed, which in what was a small space meant the room felt a little claustrophobic. The bed was also very hard, and the tiny tiny pillows... More

We were late to secure a hotel room and came across this one mostly by chance. It was the last available room and we were told straight away it was designed for handicapped people. However, the room was very comfortable (low set taps in the shower were not a disturbance), bed comfortable, room clean, the service was excellent, breakfast very... More

We booked this hotel through expedia, because we wanted to visit Sintra for a day. Location was perfect and our room was charming, with a beautiful view of the mountains in Sintra. The room was clean, and the beds were a little hard for our taste, but this did not stop us from enjoying the hotel experience. Staff was friendly... More

We stayed several days in the Lord Byron Suite (named for the 19th Century British bad-boy poet who once stayed in this room for a period of time). The bedroom was simple (almost spartan), yet comfortable. The living room was nicely sized with fireplace, desk, couch, chair, desk and balcony. This is a historic hotel with some real history, so...

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
