Hotel is in a great place, very accessible for town. Service was ok, not once during our stay where we asked if everything was ok. Kept locking the door on the corridor to our bedroom which was frustrating! Breakfast was poor, eggs were cold, bread / meat did not taste fresh. Second day we opted to eat out. Room was ok, clean and bright - but small. Pool area was nice, and views were lovely. Similarly priced to another hotel in the area, but not as good value for money.

In the historic centre, a short walk from the national palace, some fabulous restaurants and sites. Not too close to be in the tourist trap. The hotel room was lovely and huge, clean and comfortable. It wouldn’t be great for business or kids as the wifi is sketchy. There aren’t televisions in rooms, which we loved. There are lovely grounds and gardens with a pool we didn’t get to use but looked lovely. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a good breakfast but no bar or restaurant. You can order drinks to take in the balcony or in your room. The hotel used to be a destination for the so called elites, or spoilt brats as I prefer to think of them. The room we stayed in used to Princess Margaret’s favourite when staying in Sintra. The food in Sintra is fantastic. I do imagine it would be extremely busy in peak season. It was nice to visit in April. I would recommend it, though it wouldn’t be for everyone perhaps.

We spent 3 nights in Casa Holstein and we were so happy -Its in a fabulous location in the heart of Sintra but you feel like your in the middle of the countryside. The surrounding countryside reminded us of Tuscany. The large gardens on several different levels were fantastic and the views are stunning and we were greeted one morning by one of the resident Peacocks! The room was a one bedroom suite which was very comfortable and clean and it felt like we were staying with friends rather than staying in a hotel . The staff are very efficient but relaxed and it all added to a very elegant , and personal experience . The breakfast was varied and well laid out offering hot and cold breakfasts and the the team were always available if you needed anything different than what was on offer . Another big bonus for us was the ample free parking . I asked the management team if I could host pre dinner drinks for some family that were staying nearby and it was not a problem . They set up an area for us next to a archway/tunnel of wisteria which was beautiful with some wine and beer and it was a special experience . All of our guests loved Casa Holstein and they took numerous photos and some are looking to stay next time they visit - That says a lot as on this visit they were staying at the Ritz Carlton a few miles away just outside Sintra costing a great deal more ! I would highly recommend this hotel if your coming to Sintra or the surrounding area and there is also a train station a short walk away where you can get trains direct to Lisbon.

I have never received such a horrible welcome in any hotel in my life. My husband and I live in Israel, and got 4 (FOUR) Pfizer vaccines each. In September 2021 Israel made an agreement with the European Union to recognize each other's vaccination certificate. This can be found on the EU site (re-open EU). The QR code was changed to match the one in Europe. We have used our certificate both in Italy and Austria since October, and also in the Algarve without any issues. This was until we got to *Casa Holstein Quinta Sao Sebastiao* at the very end of our trip to Portugal. The manager or whatever he was wasn't happy that we didn't have an European Certificate and didn't want to check us in. In Portugal you either get tested every 3 days OR show a vaccination certificate in hotels and restaurants. First he tried to say that our vaccination was too old, that it took place 2 years ago!!!... when no vaccine existed and covid was just starting to spread. Then he calls another man, and upon listening that all we had was a certificate issued in Israel starts to yell : THIS IS EUROPE, YOU ARE ISRAEL, WE HAVE OUR RULES, YOU HAVE YOURS. YOUR CERTIFICATE IS NOT ACCEPTED. Cutting it short, they eventually called the National Health Office and got a list of countries whose vaccination certificate is accepted in Europe, and Israel was on the list of course. How come a hotel does not know which certificates should be accepted? And why not to check properly before yelling at guests? The situation was humiliating. I wonder if he was really worried about covid or was this something else. I also wonder if had I used my Brazilian passport instead of my Israeli one our treatment would be different. The staff was wearing ordinary surgical masks that are not good for omicron. We only wear N95. In the end he apologized but the damage was done and our stay ruined. I wanted to leave on the spot, but my husband was too stubborn. Certain kind of people are not cut to deal with guests or clients. We didn't do anything wrong and were terribly mistreated. Why? Because we didn't carry an European certificate despite ours being valid. We had a totally valid certificate. We had more shots than most people in Europe. We had enough shots to enter Austria without a PCR test. BUT, it wasn't good enough. The hotel is gorgeous but the only thing we ever will remember is this horrible episode.

If you know what you are getting, you will be very happy with this charming gem. It is a short walk from downtown Sintra and the castles in the area. It is a peaceful and quiet hotel with beautiful trees and flowers everywhere. We were here for a retreat and loved the suite we were put in. There is a decent breakfast included, and wild peacocks roaming around. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place. I would definitely return.

Wonderful hotel, you feel like going back in time. The grounds are so beautiful and makes you feel you are staying in a palace. Room was very nicely decorated, clean and the bed was super comfy! Location is excellent: a short 5 minute walk and you are in the center of Sintra. De Quinta da Regaleira is just a 15 minute walk. Parking on the grounds is free, so you can leave the car and explore everything by foot

We greatly enjoyed staying in this most charming and characterful residence, and feel it deserves an ‘Excellent’ rating, despite certain positive criticisms. Firstly, all the staff were friendly and helpful, and served us a generous breakfast on our own terrace each morning. Our room, (with large shared terrace) was furnished with period furniture and was tastefully upholstered, and I loved the ‘cavernous’ marble-floored shower-room, but this also presented the room’s main problem, which was that the it smelt damp due to lack of ventilation/extractor fan or de-humidifier. (Perhaps during a normal ‘hot’ summer this would be less of a problem, but it really does need attention, not least as it worsened my partner’s asthma. A small De-humidifier or extraction fan in the bathroom May remedy this. We also loved the grounds and the pool, with its panoramic terrace, and ‘Honesty Bar’, which is a nice touch. Again, we loved the charm of the place, but the pool needs a seriously good clean, and far more regular attention than it has been getting recently. So overall, we loved the place and would definitely return, (but we would choose a different room next time!).
