“Quiet, Comfortable, Clean, Well Appointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This hotel is very calm, relaxing, well designed, and the decor is a perfect home away from home.

Take the main bus from the Sintra train station and a short walk puts you on the footsteps of this hotel. The staff was very kind and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I felt I was visiting someones well decorated home and not a hotel.

Breakfast is a bit more than continental style with some extras but not a full English Breakfast. It is enough to get you through to lunch. There was always some kind of cake with tea/coffee available.

Cristina was very kind and helpful to make sure you had everything you needed. I would recommend a few nights here for a romantic getaway or some peacefulness to refresh. A really great find.

What a wonderful place it was...We stayed in the "Orange Blossom" room for 4 nights and our only regret was that we did not stay longer. The room was the largest room (and in our view the most beautiful) available in the B&B. It was full of natural light, came with a balcony big enough to sit on while enjoying the view and had all possible amenities we needed. The bathroom was spacious and came with a rain shower. Common areas were beautifully designed and really everything was super clean and smelled fresh. And then came the breakfast...great choice of cheese, ham, bread, croissants, jams, home made cakes, fresh fruit, yogurt etc etc...very tasty and always plenty available (hot water for tea and cake even all day long). Staff couldn't have been friendlier, was very helpful and provided excellent recommendations. Thanks again for everything, especially the warm welcome, Cristina, it was very nice to meet you and your team! You know exactly what travelers like...

Room Tip: Just book the "Orange Blossom" room, you won't regret it...

Beautiful, nice and stylish small boutique hotel right in the middle of Sintra. Escape the crowds of day-tourist from Lissabon and stay overnight in Aguamel. The rooms are spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, you get a delicious breakfast and Cristina and her extraordinary team go the extra mile, helping you out with tips, recommendations and solving all other kinds of problems you may encounter when you're traveling around!! Thanks a lot dear Aguamel-Team!

We had a superb time staying here. Christina and her staff did everything possible to make sure we made the most of our holiday and were relaxed and welcomed. The rooms are decorated beautifully - so classy, the location is great, and you can have cake for breakfast - could it get any better!?!

This was hands down the best place that I stayed during my two week Portugal trip. The wonderful staff, central location, great breakfasts and cozy, beautifully decorated rooms made for an excellent stay. I really felt that I was getting a four-star hotel quality experience for less than half the price and with a lot of added charm. I would strongly recommend!

This lovely house is perfect for a romantic outing in Sintra. The location is perfect, right in the centre of the old town. The house is beautifully decorated, the people are nice and helpful and the breakfast is marvelous.
I'll just point out that it is not easy to park close to the hotel (but it's never easy to park in Sintra anyway) and that some rooms have the bathroom/shower inside the room and not as a separate, more private room. I'd definitely want to repeat the experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A House with Stories Aguamel, Sintra There are still places like this... Aguamel is a family-run Boutique Guest House set in a beautiful building dated 1885 that preserves all the charm of an ancient family home. Privacy and Home Feeling are the feelings that better define Aguamel! Located in the heart of Sintra's historical center, one of the oldest Portuguese towns listed in the Unesco World Heritage sites, this house features architectural standards of secular houses, such as the high wall with the typical courtship window and large gate, patio and roof garrets overlooking Sintra mountain range and the belfries. The bedrooms offer a visual experience and promote the spirit of true voyages. The House has 5 bedrooms, all different. Each has its own personality and unique decoration, but the good taste is constant and modernity and design combine in local antique details. The name of each room refers to the flowers chosen by bees to produce honey and honey water: Orange Blossom Flower, Heather Flower, Rosemary, Jasmine and Wildflower. A house made of contrasts. Merging vintage and contemporary styles the furniture of the house reflects good taste, amenity and comfort in an intimate way. Some of the pieces were tailor-made others suffered a deep, careful recovery. This is the perfect place for unforgettable days... ... more   less
