Reviewed September 5, 2013

Sintra Bliss House is near the train station and bus station.It is also walking distance from the National Palace in the center of Sintra. The staff is friendly and the breakfast with all the pastries was excellent. Coffee and pastries were available in the afternoon. We received each a breakfast box without requesting, after informing the receptionist that we will not be at breakfast the next morning.The breakfast boxes were already ready for us early the next morning. We were very impressed with the good service. The room and bathroom were stylish and clean. Our room with a balcony, was on the first floor with a garden view. We experience no noise at all, even with our doors wide open to the balcony! We will definitive stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, with a garden view. Room 14 is excellent

We stayed at Sintra Bliss House for one night and I didn't get a wink of sleep due to the fact that our room faced the main street and we listened to nonstop traffic whooshing by our window at all hours of the night. In the morning there was some sort of parade of cars honking their horns nonstop. The glass door on the shower stall, although pretty, did not close properly and water seeped out all over the bathroom floor.
Everything else about the hotel was really nice, but the main reason for booking a hotel is to get a good night's sleep and if the quality of sleep is poor then I cannot commend a hotel on its other amenities. If the hotel is located right on the main street, then perhaps they should consider installing some sound proofing on the windows. They should definitely be able to afford this as they charge 90 Euros per night (a rip off if you ask me...)

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are extremely noisy

Stayed one night in this small, quaint hotel. It was very clean and in an excellent location (5 minutes away from train station). The rooms are a good size and the bathroom has really cool tiles (with a frosted glass door!!!!) They provide a breakfast that is pretty good and they also have a free coffee and treats area that was a nice little touch. Their zen garden in the back was a cute area where you can just have a coffee and hang out with your friends...

All in all, great hotel...would recommend this to everyone!

Room Tip: Try to get a room upstairs because the rooms downstairs are closer to the reception area so you woul...

My colleague and I stayed at the Sintra Bliss House for two weeks, and I would absolutely choose it again.

It is small, only ~15 rooms total, and there are only 2 staff people working at any given time (someone at the front desk and a housekeeper). So it feels more like a bed & breakfast than a hotel.

The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. My colleague and I arrived at 10:00 a.m. from an overnight flight and they were able to check us in early. We also needed to leave for work every day at 8:00 a.m., so they extended the breakfast hours to 7:40 a.m. just for us.

The decor is modern (think IKEA catalog), so if you are looking for traditional Portuguese and quaint, this is not the place for you.

It is a 2 minute walk to both the Sintra train station and bus stop:
Train to Rossio station in Lisbon (<5 Euro, 40 min.)
418 Bus to Estoril (<4 Euro, 40 min)
417 Bus to Cascais (<4 Euro, 40 min)
434 Bus to Sintra Palaces (5 Euro, Hop On-Hop Off)

And it is a 5-10 minute walk to the Sintra Historic Center. Bring sneakers! Also bring shampoo, conditioner, and lotion, because they do not provide toiletries.

Room Tip: I recommend staying on the 2nd or 3rd floor for more privacy (the rooms on Floor 0 open directly to...

Once I entered the Bliss House, I was surprised to find beyond a normal facade an unexpected design hotel.
The room was perfect, and there is a nice patio garden with beautiful armchairs, where we sipped the coffee that they offered us upon arrival.

But the plus of this hotel is the service, very friendly and super-efficient in dealing with all sorts of last - minute guests' issues.
The breakfast is simply a bliss.

Room Tip: Get a room with direct access to the garden!

Very good choise to pass a night with my wife. Great design, very good location, good sleep quality, the breakfast is "home made" and give you the privacy that you need. A great place in a great city, with a good price.
