“Old-style hotel in an old-style place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Sintra is stunning and fairy-tale like, and though Lawrence's Hotel is neither it certainly fits into this atmosphere. It has an old English country inn style to it, with massive four-poster beds, (hard as rock but somehow sleeping well was never a problem), cozy common areas with a fire, and pictures of pale English ladies looking down from the walls in the rooms (you almost expect them to haunt the place, in a nice, benign way). Our room had a small balcony towards a lush and lovely garden, ask for a room facing that way. There's nothing spectacular or luxurious about this establishment but it sure is cozy and clean and has all basic amenities. The service is impeccable and always provided with a smile. Location is perfect, just a couple of minutes stroll to the historical centre of Sintra. They also have a restaurant, had one dinner there, was decent, somewhat pricey, and again not particularily spectacular.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden.

We booked the "Monte da Lua" Suite on our wedding night. The suite is amazing since it has a bedroom, one toilet room with a bathtub with jacuzzi and one living room between them.

Both the living room and the bedroom have amazing natural light even in a rainy day. The couches are very comfortable and there is a small balcony with two chairs, pity there was no small table so we could have enjoyed a little better the fresh air, although the view is blocked with the leafs of the trees.

The bedroom is great with a big bed, very cozy.

The breakfast was thorough, we were served breakfast in a small but nice common room, with a packed tray.

In terms of parking, there isn't none, only some in the hotel road but scarce since the hotel is located very near the central touristic part of Sintra.

This hotel oozes charm and history while combining up to date comfort. Beautiful wide plank floors,antique furniture coupled with tv and wifi access . Everyhing is so seemless that while using my ipad curled up in a chair in the lounge area adjacent to our room another guest walked in and was startled asking if she had stumbled into our suite by mistake! Very nice staff who were very attentive to our needs.

Lawrence's Hotel is a landmark. It is very close to anything you might want to do in the center of Sintra. It is quiet and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and pretty. I had a balcony overlooking a wooded hillside. It smelled so good and the air was so cool and relaxing. I could hear the occasional rooster or sheep's bell. The restaurant in very good as well. Just what one needs after a long day of climbing the mountains and touring castles!

Room Tip: The rooms have names and real keys, remember those? So go by the name of your room. The numbers are...

Myself and five friends recently stayed for three nights at this hotel. I loved its old charm ambience, however some of my friends thought it all looked a little dated and tired. The separate lounges to sit and relax were lovely,likewise the restaurant, which we only used for breakfast. The rooms varied considerably as we had three to compare, ranging from barely big enough to huge. The staff were fantastic, nothing too much trouble. Therefore, if you prefer old world style this is the hotel for you in this picturesque part of the world.

Room Tip: The disabled room is obviously larger than average with a good wet room, however the downstairs room...

After an 8 mile hike into Sintra, this hotel was a perfect place to rest our feet, and begin to feel the charm of the city.It was easy to relax on our patio as we watched and listened to the sheep and goats and their bells and bleating. you really felt the charm and ambience of Sintra as you relaxed and soaked up the charm of the hotel. The location is perfect for visiting the palaces, restaurants, and castles of Sintra

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the woods
