Using the Seteais palace, this hotel it's like a museum. It takes you back to the monarchy era. Being itself a Sintra's landmark, I think there's nothing more to say about its beauty and grandiosity. All decoration remains the same from centuries before. Walking throughout the corridors, you can find several paintings, sculptures, pianos, etc. The gardens are also cared... More

The hotel and property are magnificent. You certainly feel as if you have stepped back in time. Even though the property and hotel are old - the service and accomodations are prestigous. Our room (#7) and beds were very comfortable. WIFI worked well here, in the rooms and in the breakfast area. The breakfast is extraordinary - just superb. It... More

This is an amazing hotel. It is small with enormous common area rooms from its days as a grand palace. The verandas to the west offer views that rival Montepulciano or Napa with broad vistas over vineyards that stretch for miles to the horizon. Dine outside for every meal on their huge patio. Sip cognac and puff cigars in the... More

This hotel is beautiful. Our room was elegant with a view of their gardens. A welcome gift of port and desserts was waiting in our room upon arrival. The staff was wonderful with providing maps and advice on how to reach certain destinations. Breakfast was an enormous spread of anything you could want. It is a bit of a walk... More

Palacio de Seteais has everything going for it - a beautiful historic building just outside a historic town in glorious surroundings. Inside the state of the decoration of the public rooms is exceptional - we were told that the decor was original, though restored. Staying there as we did in February, it sometimes seemed that we were the only guests.... More

This is an exceptional building in an exceptional place! The price was really fair. The breakfast is a must and the service is very friendly! The rooms are really good and comfortable. Only one small negative comment: if you looked closer to the skirting boards, you could see that the painting had been done quickly and without care, what is... More

This is a beautiful old palace converted into a reasonably priced hotel. Yes, it has got some peeling paint and needs refurbishment, but its a piece of history, with lovely antiques and stunning views. The restaurant is very good and you can also book for the 2 Michelin stars for EU165 per person (excluding wine). The rooms are well appointed... More

I stayed at Tivoli Palacio de Seteais in November 2013 and I paid 160 euros for a single room. As you can see from any of the travelers' photos, the hotel is gorgeous and the property big. By any standard this is a 5-star facility. However there are still a couple things that got on my nerves. First of all,... More
