Beware that this hotel has some lovely rooms and some terrible rooms. Our room was up two flights of stairs with no lift. The hallway was hot as it was a new extension without air. The conceirge tried to tell me that I had requested such a room which was impossible. The hotel was fully booked by a large tour so there was no possibility of moving us. Though the property is nicely located with a pool, we were unable to enjoy the luxury.

Room Tip: Besure you demand the old portion of the hotel with elevator!

I would recommend staying here if you are in Sintra. The staff is great, the beds are comfortable, the breakfast is excellent, and the grounds are beautiful. I arrived before check in, the hotel held my luggage, when I arrived later, my luggage was in my room, along with wine and pastries. The view was outstanding, and the location was great.

This is how a true luxury hotel should be. Beautiful from the outside and magnificent on the inside. Once we had sorted out the little mix up over the original room we were allocated we found the antique furnished Room 15 an absolute delight. Two luxurious double beds, side by side with lovely linen and gorgeous pillows. Bathroom with separate shower and nice towels and robes. Pastries and complimentary port was a nice touch. Parking is easy in the hotel grounds and we were right outside the front door. Sintra and its main attractions are within walking distance as you'll find parking in the town is a near impossibility. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, good and reasonable wine list and impeccable service. Breakfast is outstanding. A really enjoyable and delightful stay and highly recommended. Pre-book on the hotel's website for substantial savings on their rack rate.

A historical luxury close to the adorable Sintra town center.

This hotel is gorgeous - the interior lobby and common area rooms were amazing impeccable in 19th century furniture and design with classical piano music playing throughout the hotel in the background. It's truly luxurious.

The grounds are amazing dawned with beautiful grass, shubbery and wonderful flowers.

This place is truly special and a nice luxurious stay during your visit to Sintra. It is not located right downtown, but about a quick .5 mile walk which is a lovely one if you have some time on your hands.

The rooms are lovely, clean and highly recommended. Treat yourself and this hotel will make your Sintra stay extra special.

The location is wonderful, it is even a landmark !
In the building you can feel the atmosphere of the past.
Very well appointed room and high, confy bed.Nice touch in the room as a welcome: Porto wine and typical pastry.
Top class breakfast with classical music in the air and lovely service.
The hotel has free parking and it is 10 minutes walking from the Palacio National and all the restaurants.
It is pricey so we underline as a negative point you have to pay 10 euros per day for the wifi connection.
Also, there is a Nespresso machine in the room but you have to pay 2 euros for each capsule. Never appened in the others hotels.
Overall a very nice experience.
