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

... decided it's time to get back to Denver where things are familiar and get healthy. Our flight is Wednesday Nov 26.
We've had had an amazing journey and while disappointed not to finish perhaps once we are back to normal we can come back and finish what we started. In the meantime it will be nice to see family again, reconnect with friends and discover if 8 months abroad has changed the way we see ourselves.

On the table there was a wooden cube, half green, half red. If you wanted more meat you put up the green side and if you wanted no more you put up the red side.

The other stop was pure Disney stuff - a multi-coloured castle on many levels with lovely views over to Lisbon and also to the sea. It reminded us of Portmerion - but this one was built as a summer palace by one of the kings (cousin to Queen Victoria) and was used for many years. Lovely gardens, and nice to see the interior as it ...
