Right next to the train station, very close to a few of Sintra's best attractions. Cafés and restaurants are located close by. The room and bed were slightly humid and hence cold during the nights (beginning of March) but I think this may be common for older portuguese buildings during the chillier seasons. Luckily the blankets were plentiful. No breakfast...

I stayed at Monte da Lua with 2 friends and we got a triple room. This hotel doesn´t have breakfast, wich is a handicap. However we had tea and coffee in the room, which was good. The service was nice and the room and bathroom were very clean. The cleanliness is actually one the the best things in this hotel....

This hostel was ok. The receptionist was friendly. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready yet but we could place our luggage in it. The hostel was across the train station which was a plus because I travel by train. I can't say anything bad about the hostel but it was pretty pricy. I slept in other hostels which...

Stayed 2 nights in May 2014. Centrally located, (right across the street from train station - very handy to get into Lisbon), quiet. (well aside from the overserved individual in the street at 3 AM), but very tough to find parking nearby, and the streets are VERY confusing. Had a great dinner at a Rick Steves recommended rest. -- Restaurante...

Perfect location right across the train station. Guesthouse has few rooms a bit on the small size but they are clean and the house is rehabilitated keeping the old style from the area which adds additional charm to the place. Wifi was perfect

It's the second time I stay at this place, it has a great location to explore Sintra, very central and you stay in walking distance of many great places. It is clean, pleasant and the price is reasonable. The hostesses are nice and helpful.

You could not find a better hotel location in Sintra. Directly across the street from the train station and the local bus station. Esperanza / Hope treated us like her own children. Wonderful woman and so helpful for all of our needs. No breakfast, but there is a wonderful snack bar right next door with .90 euro coffee and cakes....
