We spent a night here during a trip through Portugal. Really charming building, with nice service. Unfortunately due to poor maintenance I don't believe it belongs in the 5 star category anymore, but I still wouldn't have missed on the opportunity to sleep there for the world!

We (sadly) only spent one night here on an overnight trip to Sintra from our base inLisbon. It had been recommended by a friend and we are so very pleased we took his advice and stayed here. Lawrence's is the epitome of a country hotel with cosy corners to curl up and read in with a glass of wine, which... More

This is a decent, run of the mill hotel. There is nothing particularly special about it. I don't understand the reviews that talk about its atmosphere or charm. It has little of both. It's location is good, very close to the center of town, but it's right on a busy road & noisy. There is WiFi in the room, and... More

The hotel is unique. Needs to be cherished by the people running it! Even though I love Lawrence's, it must be taken care of. It is not that a cheap shower head bothers me, but it just doesn't go with the great atmosphere of the hotel. The beds could be more comfortable. I hope the hotel keeps being taken care... More

Spent 1 night here while on an REI hiking trip. Nice hotel, loved the historic charm. Of course, historic charm doesn't always include modern amenities. The most noticeable being no wi-fi in the rooms, only in the common areas. And like many old properties, the interior layout was a bit of a maze. Had the luck to get the Lawrence... More

Lord Byron, the romantic poet, called the Lawrence Hotel his glorious Eden. Among the 16 rooms, his suite is the most honoured and shown with pride to we, lesser mortals. Surely the views from the hotel inspired many lines of Childe Herald Pilgrimage. The quality of service, the wine selection and the superb restaurant supported his poetic flights. Lawrence's hotel...

The hotel is well located and definitely with charm. The room is ok and breakfast is good. However, there is no wifi in the room; it only works in public area. To be more precise, the wifi is so weak that it only works in the reception area. In the end, we had to sit in the stairs which is... More

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 :)
