This iconic 18th-century palace is just a short walk from Quinta da Regaleira, and is surrounded by a formal garden with a swimming pool. The elegant arch that connects its two wings perfectly frames a view of Pena Palace, while the beautiful interior is richly decorated with frescoes, tapestries, and luxurious furnishings. It’s divided into 30 rooms, a spa, a restaurant, and a wine tasting room to try the wines from the Sintra region.
Perfectly located in the center of town, across the street from the Sintra National Palace, this boutique hotel has rooms and suites of different sizes and with different décors. Some of them face the palace and the old town, and there’s a highly-rated restaurant serving contemporary Portuguese cuisine using local ingredients.
Found on the road to Pena Palace, behind one of Sintra’s most iconic mansions (the Chalet Biester), this beautiful guesthouse in a building from 1890 has a tastefully-decorated interior and a wonderful exterior surrounded by the Sintra Natural Park. Renovated in 2017, it has just seven rooms, guaranteeing a quiet and intimate atmosphere. Outside is an open-air bar, a small pool, and a romantic garden.
After a 5-year renovation, a building from the 1800s opened as a guest house that’s highly rated for its exceptional service. Located just one block behind the train station, it’s within walking distance of several attractions, and, depending on the room, an excellent value. Guests also have access to common areas such as a living room with a fireplace and a garden.
It’s a three-star hotel but offers a superior service. It features a colorful, contemporary interior, and a pleasant patio in the back. It’s also conveniently located by the train station, perfect for day trips to Lisbon and to hop on the buses to Sintra’s palaces.
The Iberian Peninsula’s oldest hotel (it opened in 1764) is found between two of Sintra’s most popular attractions — the National Palace and Quinta da Regaleira. As a historic hotel, it’s decorated in a classic style, and has just 11 rooms and 6 suites. There’s a romantic atmosphere throughout the property, making it most suitable for couples.
Just outside Sintra and close to Cascais, this 5-star resort features a world-class golf course (ranked among the best in Europe) and a state-of-the-art spa, plus as many as 10 restaurants, two of them distinguished with Michelin stars. All rooms have private balconies, some of them overlooking the outdoor swimming pool. There are also tennis courts, fitness facilities, and a Kids’ Club. The beaches of Cascais are about 20 minutes away by car, while those of Sintra can be reached in about 25 minutes.
Just a short walk from the train station, this elegant century-old villa maintains its original features despite a complete renovation. It’s divided into comfortable studios, with each featuring a kitchenette and seating area where guests can prepare and enjoy their meals. The welcoming staff makes sure it feels like a home away from home.
The largest hotel in the center of town (it’s right next to the National Palace) offers 4-star accommodation. Some of the rooms have balconies opening to wonderful views of Sintra, and all are decorated in a classic-contemporary style. There are also views from the restaurant, which serves Portuguese and international cuisine.
When it opened in the summer of 2018, this hotel gave Sintra its largest swimming pool. It aims to provide the healthiest and most relaxing stay in town, with two spas offering a variety of treatments for the mind and body, a 24-hour fitness center, and a restaurant serving nutritious meals. It welcomes families, with family rooms, suites and apartments, and a Kids’ Club. The only drawback is the location to the north of the center, which can only be reached by taxi or if you have a car.
