My mother and I stayed at the Chalet Saudade for two nights We even showed up a night early and seemed to have messed up our itinerary somehow and the staff at the Chalet were so accommodating. They let us change our reservation and even let us pick our room. The house has been beautifully and lovingly renovated by the... More

We arrived in Sintra on a chilly January day. We were on a budget so I originally had skipped over the Chalet and booked a slightly cheaper room at the Nice Way Sintra. Because of a change in our travel dates at the last minute we switched to a room at Chalet Saudade (which actually cost only 9 euros more).... More

Typically I stay at the Lawrence's Hotel in Sintra, but this time it was fully booked, giving us a chance to try the Chalet Suadade. I've walked past this place for years, it's in a nice location close to the Camera and train station. The restored building has beautiful windows, tiles and details. Our delightful room, on the garden level... More

I was looking for a place to stay over the weekend and was only able to find a room for 2 consecutive nights at this guesthouse. The guesthouse is situated on the main thoroughfare of Sintra. If we did not have big luggage, we could walk down the steep stairs across the train station and the guesthouse would be across... More

Chalet Saudade is a beautiful, meticulously restored 19th-century mansion centrally located in the picturesque town of Sintra (about 15 minutes' walk from the historic centre, and literally adjacent to the railway station). Our room was spacious, beautifully appointed, and looked out over a charming garden. The staff were exceptionally helpful in every respect, fluent in English, and benevolently tolerant of... More

My review is late in the day really because the last few contributors have move or less said it all. So it only leaves me to say that if you are the kind of traveller who seeks the quirky, but needs your comfort and style then this is the place to fulfil those needs. There is nothing quite like this... More

We stayed at the Chalet Saudade as part of our 2 week trip to Portugal. It was a wonderful beginning for our trip ! Beautifully restored home very close to the train station and only a 10 to 15 minute walk up to the old village. It's extremely homey and welcoming. the staff were wonderful. Thank you Carla, Filippa and... More

We had the best time in Sintra, in no small part thanks to our wonderful stay at Chalet Saudade. The renovations/restorations are impeccable, the staff (and owners) are incredible, and our room was delightful. Every time we opened the door to our room and saw our beautiful, bright view we felt at peace. Upon arriving I looked at my husband... More

We arrived by train in Sintra and Chalet Saudade is very near the station (5' walk). We were welcomed in a very warm way and the house is gorgious!! The owners collected early twenty century furniture and then bought an adapted house :). The house is full of art and of very funny (though beautiful) small details. Comfortable room with... More

Chalet Saudade is beautiful! It is so peaceful and a short walk to the center of town! Absolute attentive staff in both the Chalet and the Café! The service in the hotel is amazing and immediate! The owners aim to please the client! Everyone is very accommodating and helpful. An absolute MUST!! We will return again- hopefully for a longer... More
