Hotel Tivoli Sintra
Travel Blogs from Sintra
Our drive from Obidos to Sintra was uneventful, until we arrived in town. Once again no street numbers, bad directions, a GPS that did not get us where we needed to go and frustration driving. We had reservations for a hotel and once again we found ourselves circling the city in their one way streets trying to find our hotel. After parking the car …
Our last day in Portugal was carried out in true Sean and Bryony style, walking from top to bottom of the Pena Park area.
Drove the little car to the base of the historic castle, and started our day.
Most people seemed to be just taking in the castle, but no we decided to climb to the highest point where a large concrete cross is erected. See the picture!!!
After that hike, we headed across to the castle, it was ...
... We haven’t got any money!”
On the other hand, they decided they were onto something good with the cobblestones so they left them. Pretty much everywhere. Suhweeet... Stone walls, soft light, strikingly beautiful Christmas decorations. Just as good as Madrid or Sintra but Madrid has money and Sintra has tininess. Net result, the other two seem better.
Had to visit the monastery and various awesome churches and go to the cathedral ...
Sintra was our favorite place we visited in Portugal (or possibly a close second to Porto Covo), so I'm a little surprised it has taken me this long to write this entry. We drove to Sintra from our hotel in Lisbon, and based off of reviews we went to Quinta de Regaleira first. Quinta consists of a large house and the land around it, which doesn't sound very exciting, but it was really cool. The grounds are really made ...
... you don't know yet about my secret desire... Well, it is to have and run my own country. Yes, I know it sounds too big or impossible but that's what I want and I picked up so many great ideas of how I want my country to look, right here in Sintra. On my walk to the center of town there were these beautiful art sculptures along the road. Definitely a must for the roads of my country one day. Art so freely and generously exhibited excites me so much! Many people ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tivoli Sintra
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!).
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
