Easy early arrival. Room with view, light and air. Clean. Cheerful. I would recommend a stay and would return here. The unlimited coffee was an added bonus. Parking can be tricky which it turns out is generally the case in Sintra.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Casa Miradoura was a pleasant place to stay but it did not live up to our expectations from reading 5* 'tripadvisor' reviews. The flaw was attention to detail, probably because the owner (Charlotte?) was not around much and left the running to two young assistants.

Specifically our bedroom (No 4) smelled badly when we arrived, and it was only after pointing out this obvious problem that remedial, and fully successful, action was taken. The weather was unseasonably cold, but no attempt was made to warm our room when we arrived: the heating was put on later in the day. Breakfast was adequate but lacking in variety (very plain bread etc.), but free Nespresso coffee and WiFi was excellent.

In short this was a nice place to stay, but more a 3* than a 5* experience and over-priced in our opinion at 135€ per night.

This is a wonderfully restored and gracious building, with spacious rooms, comfy bed, fine breakfast buffet and very helpful staff. Sintra is a very hilly town, and everything is uphill from the hotel (as it is everywhere in town), so bring your best walking shoes. We stayed early in the season - end of April - and hotel was very quiet.

Casa Miradouro is everything you would want from a bed and breakfast: a well appointed, historic building; welcoming staff; and a good breakfast. The inn is a 10-minute walk from the center of Sintra, which makes it a more peaceful place to stay. (It's an uphill walk to the center, but my 87 year old father did it with no problem.)

Charlotte, Joy, and Donna do a great job.

When you make your way to this lovely manor home, you will be greeting by your lovely host Charlotte. You are offered a wonderful glass of port to enjoy while she tells you about all the beautiful sites to see in Sintra. The home is beautifully restored with lovely spacious rooms where the beds are made with fine linens and private baths. The breakfast is very ample to start your day of touring. As it sits at the bottom of the hill from the National Palace, the views are spectacular. I highly recommend this B & B when stopping over in Sintra. Thank you Charlotte for

We would like to live here. Very tasteful decor and fittings in a stylishly modernised old house. Master suite 4 not really a suite but a decent sized high-ceilinged room with large bed, antique wardrobe plus 2 comfy chairs & table by the balcony. Working shutters a nice touch. Sun in the evening and long distance views. Bathroom modern -shower only. Three types of pillow.
Free communal Nespresso but espresso cups & caffeinated can run out at busy times - tea lovers can get large cups and use kettle in the kitchen. Hotel provides small water daily and a communal bottle of water in the honesty bar. Not bad prices - Coke €2, port €2-3, bottles of wine available €12 upwards.
Beautiful large lounges better than those of many grander hotels - useful as too cold for the garden in mid-April. Cold breakfast buffet plus eggs cooked to order- all very high quality products. Kindest and most helpful staff in Portugal.
Location 8-10 minutes up very steephill to Palacio Real and buses for other palaces - quite a distance from the part of the town by the train station but taxi €5-6 to and from the hotel.

The drive from the station down to the Casa Miradouro was a short one but offering a nice taste of what Sintra and the surroundings has to offer... arriving at Casa Miradouro itself was like a homecoming. The friendlyness of the the staff... the warm welcome as well as the amazing views... somehow it felt as coming home even for a first time (business) visitor...

The place (and I dont want to refer to it as hotel because it doesnt feel as I was a guest but I rather felt like part of the whole setting..) is amazing... I enjoyed a comfortable room, exquisite bathroom with (5* amenities).... I slept late but the staff was more than ready to accomodate to my late wake-up to provide me with breakfast and a good strong coffee...

I had the chance to stay their also for the night and Charlotte arranged a space at a very nice restaurant answerring exactly to my likings.... some people should stay away from the hospitality business and rare few are simply born for it... Charlotte and her staff definitely belong to the latter!

I stayed there after missing my connecting flight and Charlotte and her husband went out of their ways to get me the next best option to fly out again...only wished they hadn't done their best that much because I felt I was leaving Casa Miradouro too early... surely I will come back here!!

Thanks again!
