We emailed this hotel from Lisbon , telling them of the lovely time we had there. the bed is sooo comfy, the room light and airy with views to the castles and the hills, it is central to bus and train station, but the most amazing thing about this hotel is the staff. They could not do enough to help...

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Nova Sintra in July 2015. The hotel is perfectly situated in central Sintra, close to the railway station, buses and all the local shops and restaurants. We stayed in a large and very charming room in the attic, and - don´t worry: a room with all the facilities you could ask for! From...

My dad and I stayed for 7 nights and this hotel was a great base. We could get the bus from outside the hotel to the beach and we were just a 10 minute walk to Sintra's historic centre. The rooms were basic, but clean and pleasant. The large patio is a great place to sit and relax and take...

The hosts were spectacular! It felt as if I was staying with family. The rooms were very clean. The location is perfect. I downloaded a sleep noise app as you do hear the train at night. Amazing front porch, half completely tree shaded. I was there 12 nights, and breakfast never changed. My only concern, only relevant to those with...

Our room was great--very clean and pleasant. The room was slightly small if you're looking for something spacious, but it certainly wasn't cramped, and had a very large wardrobe. The staff were really friendly and very helpful with recommendations, especially finding a nearby free parking lot (we drove in from Lisbon). It was pretty cloudy when we were there, so...

A wonderful place to just relax and let the world go by. Rui and his staff could not be more helpful. The terrace is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy a few glasses of wine after a day of sightseeing. A great central location for cafes and restaurants in the town. We had no trouble parking and there is...

This is a fantastic hotel, great location, spotlessly clean and staff that really cant do enough to make sure you have a great stay. Lovely, quaint, simple place which has got it just right - simple doesnt have to mean cheap or basic. I found everything from beds and linen to breakfast excellent quality. No over the top frills but...

I stayed at the Nova Sintra over a quarter of a century ago when I first visited Sintra. I liked it then and was curious how the hotel would have changed. Well, I was delighted. There was plenty of the old-style charm that I remembered but the accommodation was now pleasantly up to date. My bedroom was simple but extremely...

Our two night stay at Hotel Nova Sintra was the perfect place for us. Great location, clean, great staff and accommodating. It certainly lived up to all of the other positive reviews offered for this hotel. Rather than give us the room we were booked in, our host offered us a larger room at no extra charge. We would not...

If I could turn back time, I would have chosen another hotel! This place lost its charm 50 years ago! It was dirty, not much in the way of customer service. The room had the air of eau d'must...I did not want to be barefoot in the room..gross, simply gross
