Atmospheric, basic and fairly priced B&B in a lush garden with views across the valley to Pena Palace (when not covered by clouds). Stayed two nights in a ground floor room with a sofa bed. Not big but fairly comfortable and clean, with a small modern bathroom, coffee/tea facilities and a small terrace that we did not use due to the wet climate that is part of Sintra charm. An indoor common space (lounge?) would be nice.
The fridge was old, noisy and leaky and the room had a strange smell of moisture. Breakfast - if ordered - is served in the room but not particularly value for money. View from the room was not very inspiring - the small internet cottage - but we later realised that the place has a modernised section of rooms in the lower garden with perfect valley views. Our host Felicia was very friendly and service minded - so were her non English-speaking colleagues - but beware of the huge dogs that may run around on the ground, not dangerous but somewhat frightening for kids.
10 min walk to the central square of Placa Republica with cafés etc. For quick lunches, breakfasts etc. try the Pastelaria on the square. Sintra is a charming town with a lot of atmosphere but (therefore) very crowded with tourists.
