“Beautiful location and a great swimming pool!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

Arriving to the mansion, and greeted by two gigantic dogs, I already felt like I was in paradise. My mother and I stayed in one of the newer rooms, with our windows open, we were greeted by the local cat in the evening. The grounds of the Residencial was well kept, and so was their small swimming pool. It was refreshing to swim in the middle of the green hilly city of Sintra. I recommend this place, it was a lovely stay and well worth the price.

The hotel is housed in an old villa and the rooms are really large. The front rooms have a view and the back ones look onto the hill behind the house. I stayed in a back room which was slightly less expensive but it really didn't make a difference to me since I was never in the room except to sleep and shower. If you pay cash there is also a slight discount. The rooms are basic but clean and large.

The hotel is located outside the town of Sintra but it's an easy walk to town through a nice park. The hotel also has a huge garden and pool which would be nice to take advantage of in warmer weather.

The family that runs the hotel was very nice and very helpful too.

Good location with palatial rooms at a nice price, we would stay again and didn´t want to leave. Sintra is an incredible place not to be missed!

Our room was appauling. Peeling paint, plaster falling off the walls, black mould growing on all around window and door frames, dark and unwelcoming. This residence looks great from the outside and was highly recommended by Lonely Planet - we were very, very disappointed! OK. Maybe it was just the room we had - but we did book a room with a garden view and got a high hedge anly 2 feet from our window! The location of this hotel is good & the pool area is nice, but the room we stayed in was desparatly in need of paint and renovation.

The Residencial was very relaxing and welcoming. I loved sitting in the back garden, enjoying a cocktail at the end of a day of sightseeing! The owners and staff were extremely gracious and helpful, giving us loads of great suggestions for restaurants & sights. The property is well-worn & could use some upgrades with new paint etc, but the rooms are clean. I would certainly stay here again.

I loved this place. An old manor house converted into a lovely atmospheric pension. It's luxurious, indeed much of the decor hasn't been updated for 50 years or more I doubt but in a way this adds to charm and ambience. The pool was wonderful and very clean and the kids loved playing on the homemade football pitch. The family and staff that work there were effortlessly kind and helpful (it has been in the family for 50 years I gather.

The views from the terrace and gardens and most of the rooms are utterly breathtaking overlooking castles and valleys etc.

Another big plus was its location in San Pedro, a small village just outside Sintra. San Pedro was charming with excellent restaurants and far enough away from the tourist-bustle of Sintra to feel like you were in proper Portugal.

The one minus was dealing with the heat at night. It was scorchio when we were there, and as the room don't have air con you had to leave the windows open, which would be fine except we picked a fair collection of mosquito bites. The window need mosquito nets on them, unless this was an exceptional occurence.

The other thing, while I'm at it, is that the gorgeous terrace with stunning views, is crying out to be used as a place to have pre-evening drinks on and to mix with other guests. Owners - if you read this, can i suggest you put a drink menu and bell or something on the tables on the terrace. Or have a cocktail hour where you have a table of drinks up there with someone serving.

All in all, a gem and to be recommended.

A converted old manor house overlooking a lush garden and lovely pool, this family owned and run pensão is a real find in touristy Sintra if you are looking for charm and relaxation at a reasonable price.

Located halfway between the village centers of Sintra and São Pedro, the inn is accessible by bus or taxi from the train station (an uphill trip that going back down is easily done on foot.) There is no need for a car here unless one has trouble walking. Local buses and also the tourist bus to Pena Palace and the Castle stop right outside the gate. Taxi service is inexpensive. The National Palace is a 15 minute stroll downhill through a park. Good restaurants in São Pedro are in even closer walking distance. We especially enjoyed dinner at Cantinho de São Pedro.

The accommodations in this old house are simple but comfortable. We chose a room on the back without a view. On the ground floor, it was somewhat dark and a bit musty, but nice and cool at night -- no need for air conditioning. Beds were a bit hard and the bathroom was very small, but with good water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was fine, just a bit limited. There is no restaurant on site but drinks, snacks and sandwiches are available.

We loved our stay here and after 3 days did not want to leave. We enjoyed the B&B feel, the friendly and helpful multi-lingual staff, the luxurious beauty of the setting and most of all the wonderful pool (with plenty of sunbeds and extra towels for the asking) where, after checking out on one of the hottest days of the season, we were welcome to stay on throughout the afternoon.
