Casa Miradouro
Ranked #7 of 43 Sintra B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The location of the Casa Miradouro can be a bit of a challenge for those not used to hiking or even walking uphill. But as taxis are inexpensive, that really doesn't matter. The beautiful old building has been remodeled and redecorated with fresh, light, luminous furnishings mixed with antiques. The public rooms are equipped with complimentary coffee and tea, wine and harder stuff for a minimal price. Charlotte, the owner, is a thoughtful hostess and her staff is attuned to dealing with whatever may arise. Central Sintra is only a few short, uphill blocks away - but it is all downhill on the way home! The views from the rooms are lovely - castles everywhere, the sea, the mountains - and for those with a sense of history, an abandoned old building that only adds to the ambiance. The rooms are fresh and clean with comfortable linens and modern bathrooms. Internet is available in public rooms and sometimes in bedrooms. The breakfast is worth the additional cost, with eggs cooked to order, freshly baked pastries and anything else one might desire. This is a lovely, relaxing place to enjoy the beauty of Sintra.

We discovered this litte gem of a B&B on TA. The building is located about 10-12 minutes walking from the Sintra train station. The walk is hilly and I would not recommend it for anyone with health issues but for the somewhat fit to fit it is a great way to see that side of Sintra.
The castles are viewable from the garden and not far by auto.
The B&B staff is excellent, warm friendly and willing to help in any way and converse in several languages English being one. Breakfast was a treat with the typical meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, fruits and something special, eggs cooked to order.
They have a lovely sitting area where you can relax and catch-up on your emails with the free WiFi available. The only issue I had was the WiFi was not available en-suite.
The rooms were nicely appointed, very clean and our bath was spacious with a view overlooking the walk I mentioned earlier. Follow-up daily housekeeping was excellent and always completed before we returned from our day's adventure.
Our GPS took us right to the door but parking is on the street. The neighborhood is very safe and we never felt threatened even when walking late into the evening.
Lisbon is only a 30 minute train ride to the central station and trains run frequently. Train is a great way to get to Lisbon. you can leave your car at the B&B to avoid all of the traffic and parking fees.
So if you do not want to stay in Lisbon, but be close by, you want something other than a hotel then stay at the Casa Miradouro

Room Tip: There isn't an elevator and they have three floor, a long way up with luggage.

Easy early arrival. Room with view, light and air. Clean. Cheerful. I would recommend a stay and would return here. The unlimited coffee was an added bonus. Parking can be tricky which it turns out is generally the case in Sintra.

Casa Miradoura was a pleasant place to stay but it did not live up to our expectations from reading 5* 'tripadvisor' reviews. The flaw was attention to detail, probably because the owner (Charlotte?) was not around much and left the running to two young assistants.

Specifically our bedroom (No 4) smelled badly when we arrived, and it was only after pointing out this obvious problem that remedial, and fully successful, action was taken. The weather was unseasonably cold, but no attempt was made to warm our room when we arrived: the heating was put on later in the day. Breakfast was adequate but lacking in variety (very plain bread etc.), but free Nespresso coffee and WiFi was excellent.

In short this was a nice place to stay, but more a 3* than a 5* experience and over-priced in our opinion at 135€ per night.

This is a wonderfully restored and gracious building, with spacious rooms, comfy bed, fine breakfast buffet and very helpful staff. Sintra is a very hilly town, and everything is uphill from the hotel (as it is everywhere in town), so bring your best walking shoes. We stayed early in the season - end of April - and hotel was very quiet.

Casa Miradouro is everything you would want from a bed and breakfast: a well appointed, historic building; welcoming staff; and a good breakfast. The inn is a 10-minute walk from the center of Sintra, which makes it a more peaceful place to stay. (It's an uphill walk to the center, but my 87 year old father did it with no problem.)

Charlotte, Joy, and Donna do a great job.

When you make your way to this lovely manor home, you will be greeting by your lovely host Charlotte. You are offered a wonderful glass of port to enjoy while she tells you about all the beautiful sites to see in Sintra. The home is beautifully restored with lovely spacious rooms where the beds are made with fine linens and private baths. The breakfast is very ample to start your day of touring. As it sits at the bottom of the hill from the National Palace, the views are spectacular. I highly recommend this B & B when stopping over in Sintra. Thank you Charlotte for
