A wonderful place to stay. I opted to have a room to myself (still much cheaper than a hotel) and had a beautiful room with 3 windows and a spacious bathroom, all overlooking the garden. The staff are really friendly, helpful and considerate. I was drawn to stay here because of its ecological credentials and general ethos. If you are visiting Lisbon, consider staying here - it's easy to access the city and Sintra is magical. This is where I will stay again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Almáa Sintra Hostel is a retreat center and an Eco Hostel located in the heart of the Sintra Mountain Range which cultural landscape is classified by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Our house is sited in a property considered the oldest in Sintra, dated back to the 12st century, with 3,5 ha of luxurious gardens. We offer private and shared rooms in a heavenly environment. The Hostel was named Almáa, which means "The Water" in Arabic, due to the influence of the moors in this region and the fantastic natural spring water that supplies the house, and waters the gardens. "Alma" also means soul in some Latin languages. Our beliefs in sustainability and in helping one another, made us manufacture our furniture with recycled materials done by local artists with the help of third sector entities (charities, voluntary organizations and social enterprises) that are also our main suppliers. ... more less
