“Excellent hotel in Sintra!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

I highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again if returning to Sintra.

The hotel is perfectly located a 5 minutes walk from the train station. The outside of the hotel is very nice, lots of sitting groups on the terrace and in the garden. If we had visited Sintra in the summer, we would definitely have used the outdoor place of the hotel.
Rui, the hotel manager, is very welcoming, and made our stay a positive experience. When we arrived, he showed us two rooms, so that we could choose the one we preferred. Our room had a beautiful view over one of the (many) castles in Sintra.
The breakfast was good, and the hotel was clean. I have only positive things to say about Hotel Nova Sintra, and recommend it to anyone going to Sintra.

So well situated for Lisbon, the coast and Sintra's amazing palaces (the highlight for us). I'd echo all the compliments about Rui - he's a great host, never pushy but always helpful and keen to share insight into the way portugal works. Hotel is in a great position - take the tram to the seaside! - and the rooms and terrace very pleasant. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Not a problem -Rui will show you what's available.

The hotel is in an excellent location. The entrance is up a flight of stairs from the main road, five minutes walk from the main train station. The staff are very helpful, breakfasts excellent. Our bedroom was comfortable, although quite basic.

Room Tip: There is no lift and bedrooms are one or two levels above the ground floor.

We just returned from a 10 day vacation in Portugal and by far our favorite place to stay was at the Nova Sintra. Rui, the hotel manager, immediately made us feel right at home with his hospitality, that at the end of our trip we returned for a few more nights to relax and unwind before our trip home to New York.
SIntra is a beautiful city on its own, but our stay at the Nova Sintra, made it even more desirable.
Thank You Rui- we will return soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but the attic room is delightful with its wonderful views!

Excellently located near transport & shops. Quiet & comfortable, with a manager who goes out of his way to see to you're comfort & add to you're experience of the area. A lovely terrace on top of the hotel to enjoy the views.

If you want to stay in Sintra with easy access to Lisbon, this is a great spot as it's very close to the train station. The owner manager is very friendly and helpful and the place is clean. Breakfast is OK, too. That said, the hotel is quite tired and badly in need of redecorating. Even small repairs aren't attended to. Bathroom and shower doors don't close. Plastic flowers are everywhere, kitch is ubiquitous. Still the basics are decent, so depends what you're seeking.
