Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tivoli Sintra
Once inside, the views are fantastic
I would repeat that the hotel is depressing from the outside. Once inside, the views are fantastic, the breakfast is excellent, the staff very helpful, and the room was large, clean and had a balcony (bonus!).
The streets around the hotel are narrow and a maze of one-ways. Consider being a pedestrian during your stay. You may park for free in the underground garage (involving a very tricky turn) or if you're luck in front of the hotel.
Sintra is a magical and beautiful place if you're not driving and the hotel is in an ideal location to discover the old town.
We had the luck to be there, Sept 17th 2004, for a religious festival that had a beautiful parade behind a statue of the Virgin Mary followed by a large part of the local population getting drunk throughout the night. It was very noisy in the hotel, but the management had warned us beforehand.
I would give the hotel an 8+ out of 10.
Views to die for
As a base to stay after the moto Grand Prix at Estoril (only five mins drive ) my wife and i stayed here for two days.The hotel looks a little tired in places but dont let that stop you . Very clean and tidy. Staff very very helpfull despite being harassed by us thirsty brit bikers.
The hotel is perched on a hill which warrants some spectacular view from the lounge.
The village of Sintra is so full of small delightfull side streets with equaly delightfull bars and restaurants. Twenty mins drive from Lisbon , i recommend the town and hotel wholeheartly
Great location & view!
I agree, but it's worth it! the Hotel itself is pretty nice & clean. Sintra is beautiful. I would recommend going to Hockey Caffee at Praça de la República, 12. Have fun!
My husband and I stayed 7 nights at the Tivoli Hotel in May 2004. We had a fantastic holiday. Sintra is a truly magical place and the Tivoli Hotel is superbly situated to explore this area. We agree with the other reviews that this hotel is not pretty to look at from outside, but it was very comfortable and the staff were friendly. The views from the dining room and our balcony were incredible. We would definitely visit Sintra again and would certainly stay at the Tivoli Hotel. Our room was quite spacious, spotlessly clean - in fact no faults at all. The hotel did lack atmosphere and the dinners were not the finest dining but we loved staying there.
Truly an excellent location and well appointed rooms with helpful staff though the hotel lacked atmosphere and is truly an architectural disaster given its location. The buffet breakfast was very good and the hotel bar offered a happy hour with very reasonable prices. A good way to relax before dinner. We enjoyed our stay.
What a neglecting
we stay at the hotel in september 2003 for one night. In the center of the historic core of sintra to design so uncharacter building is a sin.
but beside that the views from the rooms and the public areas are lovely and as the saing ,"those who are in the hotel does not see the hotel". the parking is in the basement and there is elevator from there to the rooms. the rooms are big and comfortable and so are the w.c.
Facing the side of the National Palace in Sintra The hotel is not very pretty to look at, but the views are something else, take a look from the bar/lobby windows especially at sunset. If there is no parking space available in front of the hotel,ask to park underneath in the hotel carpark,( it's down the hill behind th hotel) the receptionist will open the gate from the desk reluctantly. The rooms are a reasonable size + reasonable value for money, but the place is soulless We won`t be back Val

... with 8 rooms. There are 3 public sitting areas with fireplaces, beautiful oriental carpets and an honor bar for everything from espresso coffee to sodas to port and other alcoholic beverages. A chess board is set up and the Belgian owner and Philippino manager speak very good English. It's low season so there are only 2 rooms with guests and we are made to feel at home. Both the owner and manager have been very kind ...
... walk to the train station. We took the train to Cascais and then we caught bus 434, the scenic way, to Sintra. The ride started inland on busy highway. We thought, 'this is the scenic way?' But then the bus looped toward the ocean on a rural road with ocean and forest views. Most people only went as far as Roca Cape.
We got off the bus at its last stop near the train station in Sintra. It is a ...
... we had and rare steak sandwich. The goose barnacle was interesting. We never ate this. The reason for its exuberant price is that it's extremely difficult and dangerous to collect. They are commonly found in rough coastal water on rocks. After it arrived at our table, it took some practice to learn how to take away the outer skin. It tasted similar to clams but was a lot sweeter (umami). The rest of the seafood was also fantastic. The giant prawn was ...
... apparently designed for the Expo 1991 and everything you see has the form of waves, beautiful tiles and flowers blooming everywhere and floor stones in the form of sea creatures. Afterwards we were on the search for pasteis de Belem, these cute little cakes and little pieces of heaven. The authentic cakes are really close to the palace. Don´t get in the line, skip through it by going into the restaurant, grabbing a table and enjoying the beautiful inside of the ...
Remarkable Cemetery of ‘Pleasures’ Lisbon (Cemitério dos Prazeres):I was at a cemetery, so decided to go have a look. This was actually really interesting as the caskets are not buried but placed big mausoleums looks like a little house , each house holds up to ten caskets. This is home to the past rich and famous of Portugal. at one end of the cemetery was a really great view of the city.
