“Gorgeous place and breakfast is to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

It's not a place for budget travellers but if you're looking to treat somebody special then this will be the perfect place. The service is excellent. The staff are very interested in making sure that you have a pleasant stay. Be sure to ask for their recommendations for restaurants and stuff to do. The iPads in the rooms are a lovely touch.

Breakfast is fantastic. The first morning, the breakfast room was full so we had breakfast in the garden in the sunshine. On the second morning, we had a nice sociable breakfast with other guests.

Bear in mind that parking needs to be arranged beforehand.

Now it wasn't perfect. In our innocence, we assumed that a (small) glass of spirits was priced similar to the beer, which was very reasonably priced and oh boy were we wrong. Got a fair shock when I saw the bill.

It also a 15-20 minute walk from the main town centre and the "new town" closer is not very lively at nighttime.

Great stay at Oh Casa Sintra. The host couple are fabulous!! great breakfast - we ate in the garden nice to have parking and they did our laundry too ( 8 euro)
our room on ground floor was nice, but small and tiny bathroom. Not cheap considering this, No fan or aircon so I was far too hot, we could not open our windows due to the road noise
I would stay again, but try a different room perhaps

Room Tip: Don't stay in ground floor room

Recently\ we stayed at the Oh Casa Sintra during a hot week of August. The premises has a convenient location for Sintra and Lizbon, the garden is fabulous, the young couple who hosted us made the experience so worthwhile we first extended our stay. Then after our trip to Porto we wanted to again stay at the Oh Casa Sintra. We had a sitting room and bed room plus a smallish but effiecient bath room.The price was 105 Euros for the extended stay and replay (-;. Audrius and Indre were so friendly and yet considered we want to come back again soon. The location is perfect for trips to Lizbon. You can take the train to Lizbon for 2.05 Euro one way. Trains run until 01:00. We did not use our rental car at all for trips to Lizbon. from me a "solid recommend"....

+ central location, PC on the corridor and ipads in every room- handy for last-minute planning! rooms air conditioned, very nice and helpful staff, large rooms


- rather expensive, breakfast served from 9am (too late if you want to leave early or planned to have a long day visiting area) and also the breakfast takes too much time- it takes at least an hour for all the food to arrive, so the earliest you can leave is about 10am (too late for me!). location tricky - sat navs show the address in the 'new part' of sintra, two other couples we stayed with (met at breakfast) had problems to find the place too, so be prepared and have a small map rather than count on sat nav accuracy in this case. situated at the busy road. make sure you tell them if you arrive by car, there is only a 3 spaces car park and no on-street parking facilities.

Thank you so much for your review and we appreciate your comments. Our normal breakfast does take sometime to prepare as we make everything fresh and want to make sure our guests never leave the table hungry. We recognize that some people might want to get an early start on their day and we have added an "early bird special" that is a quicker, smaller(albeit still incredibly filling) breakfast. We also prepare a small "snack bag" for these guest to take with them. We hope to see you again soon. We'll keep a "caipirinha" on ice for you!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Oh Casa in the King Suit. For 135 Euros, you could not get a better deal. Our room had two balconies, a sitting room and a bathroom. The young man who was running the hotel, Anders, was SO helpful and friendly without being intrusive. He cooked us fresh breakfast (anything we wanted) each morning, at whatever time we wanted. The kitchen is very convenient and the outdoor sitting was gorgeous. We went with another couple and they stayed in the basic suit which was smaller but still nice and clean, another great deal. We stayed in Sintra for two nights and didn't have to drive once because we were able to walk to town and to the Castles. I've also stayed at the Tivoli Sintra right in the town center, which was smiliarly priced but this hotel was much cleaner and more beautiful. I would recommend it in a hearbeat!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our PhilosophyWe believe a hotel really needs to be open and flexible, which doesn't place any restrictions on its guest. In fact, it should do just the opposite, offering up new possibilities every day.When thinking about Oh Casa, we wanted to create a hotel that wasn't quite a hotel. We still wanted it to be a place where you could get a great nights sleep but also wanted it to have a little something extra. A place which put no pressure on it's clients, but instead offered up opportunities.We combined the best features of a hotel with the hospitality of a friend's house. A place where travelers could feel comfortable enough to make their own drinks, eat breakfast in their room, kitchen, or garden. A place where guests could play their own music, light their own fire in the fireplace. A place where you could enjoy the quiet solitude of your room or mingle over homemade dinners with other guests.Oh Casa is unpretentious and unassuming and yet there is something about it that just makes you smile. ... more   less
