My wife and I couldn't have been happier with our stay here. Everyone is friendly and attentive, but Bernardo, the owner, was especially gracious (Luis as well). He even offered us a choice of rooms. We opted for the second floor view. All was great - bed, view, overall room comfort etc. Loved the patio as well and its an...

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Nova Sintra. The staff is extraordinarily kind and helpful. They loaned us an umbrella for the day, helped us find a delicious restaurant, provided us with maps and tour advice, and fixed me a special breakfast that accommodated my food allergies. We followed their advice on what to do and when to do...

I have stayed twice at Hotel Nova Sintra and both were pleasant and comfortable experiences. Many things are going for this place. First: the location. It is about five minutes’ walk from Sintra’s train station. (Exist right out of the station’s gate, up the slight incline, then at the top turn left and the hotel is to your left.) Second,...

We used the hotel as a base for visiting Lisbon. Its location, a few hundred metres from a railway terminus, making it very easy to get a train into the heart of the city. Rui the proprietor couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating and made our stay a pleasure, The room was quiet, clean and well appointed. The hotel...

We stayed at Nova Sintra in the off season, so we were one of the only guests in the small hotel. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the breakfasts were simple but good, and we loved staying in a cozy and family-owned place. I can only imagine how nice the terrace would be for summer visitors!!! If you want...

Rui and his staff couldn't do enough for us during our stay this summer, it really was a home from home. Great location only 5 minutes from the train station and wonderful views across the valley to the palaces. We were given lots of useful information and there were some lovely personal touches...local pastries to try, and don't forget to...

An absolutely FANTASTIC stay. The hotel manager is one of kindest people we've encountered in our travels. We came with my family to celebrate my 40th birthday, and drove all around Portugal... this hotel, by far, has been the best experience... ample and comfortable room, excellent quality breakfast, amazing location, all amenities you could need... and again, the hotel manager...

Nice place, delicious breakfasts, incredible manager ready for help in any case. Rooms small, but very clean, towels changed every day. A big tarrace with plants, flowers and view to Moorish castle (illuminated in the night). 200 m from a train station, which is not visble and do not disturb - direct connection to Lisbon, 30-40'. I highly recommend Nova!...

I spent 6 nights at this hotel. The manager and other staff are really helpful, welcoming and reasonable. I've enjoyed everything - the location, the breakfast, the rooms, the cleanliness, personality of the staff and I would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone. The next time I'm in Sintra, I'll book the Nova Sintra hotel! OBRIGADO.

I recently visited Sintra, Portugal with my friend and stayed at this hotel for one night. Out of all the hotels we stayed at during our trip this by far was the best one and my favorite.
