We stayed at the Casa Miradouro for 2 nights in February 2013. It is a short and cheap taxi journey from the train station in Sintra.

The whole of Sintra is easy on the eye, but this place is just beautiful from the outside and only improves when you enter it. The furnishings are classy and comfortable, a very relaxing environment, the room we had was very comfortable clean and very well decorated.

Plenty to eat at breakfast all freshly made and tasty, though not the supply of pastries on show that you get in Lisbon.

The staff were very helpful, their English was excellent and helped save us plenty of time and money in Sintra with their advice.

If you are considering going to Sintra do not just do a day visit, it is simply amazing stay overninght at this place it will not dissapoint.

Our wedding was in Sintra. All our guests are housed in the Casa Miradouro. The atmosphere was really at home. Large villa with all our friends. Beautiful furniture in the spirit of fairy Sintra, great view from any window! The staff is very helpful and responsive.
Charlotte even recommended me hairdresser for the bridal hairstyle.
The only remark - in winter in a damp Sintra the house should be heated better. Guests can easily catch a cold in a cold damp home.

Absolutely charming. No TV and that is what you want in a place like this... It allows you to focus on the beautiful scenery that you can enjoy from the nice terrasse...We were welcomed with a glass of Porto and the Bar in the living room of the Casa is open and operates on the "honour system"... This to me is a simple example of trust and good manners. Breakfast was served later than my morning engagements (combining work and pleasure), but the staff adjusted to my schedule... and the food was perfect. PP Beland, Canada

My family and I spent three nights here over New Year's Eve. What a wonderful, charming, friendly place to stay (the hosts even invited us to celebrate New Year's Eve with them)! Comfortable rooms, honor wine/booze bar, Nespresso pot for coffee in the lounge area, computer for guest use, plus a used book exchange, all combined for a welcoming stay. And we all agreed the breakfast was the best we found on our 10 day trip. Yes, it's quite a steep hike into town so it is not suitable for the infirm but we enjoyed the exercise.

Two years ago I stayed with my boyfriend at this lovely place. 2 years and a toddler later we stayed here again. Once more we enjoyed our stay. The house and rooms are beautiful, breakfast is a delight, and the staff very helpful and always friendly.
On New Year's eve the hostess even invited us and all other guests to some bubbles and fingerfood which was lovely and made us feel like home.
Sintra remains a treasure and surprises me over and over again. I can highly recommend to go and visit the city when in Portugal. And when in doubt where to stay...choose Casa Miradouro!

Very welcoming, beautifully furnished rooms in an old house with great views and an excellent breakfast. As it was just before Christmas, there were also lovely Christmas decorations throughout the public lounge and the bedrooms. Only drawback to be aware of is that it's a longish and very uphill walk up to the town centre. I would certainly choose to stay there again.

A beautifully restored 19th century manor house, with just 8 rooms and very elegant and confy living rooms. A full bar and Nespresso coffee machines so that you can help yourself.
Although the house is in a very quiet lane, you are really close to Sintra's town centre (walk up the lane and you will find yourself in Palácio Real). The lane is a bit steep - but so is all of Sintra.
For those who prefer small charming hotels, where you can feel at home - this is the place. Small and cosy but with all that you need.
The breakfast room is lovely.
The view is beautiful.

Travelling with a one year old child is sometimes difficult - You need access to a kitchen (fridge & microwave oven) - something that is not easy in a big hotel. Or else you have to pay extra for a suite with a kitchenette. They gave me access to the kitchen for these baby issues.

Imagine this was a chain hotel (thank God it's not): I would stay in this chain wherever I'd travel in the world.
