We visited Sintra so I could celebrate my birthday in the atmospheric grottos the Quinta da Regaleira. to our astonishment, the room we booked actually looked out over the Quinta, and the Pena palace was in sight as well among the wooded hillside views. The hostel itself is a quaint little mansion we could spot looking back across the valley from the towers of the Quinta. Décor is great fun and the staff were really helpful - even re-charging a mobile for us! As we checked in they offered a trip to the most westerly point of the European landmass (Capo da Roca) along with a tasting of home-made "jinja" (cherry liqueur). Wished I'd bought a bottle there and then as we never found such good stuff in town. The garden is really restful (especially early in the morning) and designed for out-door living, eating and relaxing. I'm usually hard to please, but I'll be recommending Nice Way Sintra Palace to all my friends for the quieter months. Great kitchen and the chance to join in the hostel atmosphere, but works equally well as a hotel/guesthouse with wonderful views. It's a short but steep walk into town for us oldies, but it's an even shorter walk back down at night! They were happy to mind our bags after check-out time and even let us back in to relax between climbing palaces and catching the sub-urban train back to Lisbon
