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 …
... a little in and out today. Considering where we are I am amazed how good it has been. I feel very fortunate to hear from everyone via email, see photos of, and FaceTime with my grandchildren! We have not lost any power yet either, which we were told may happen. Touch wood, or maybe not. It would return soon enough, we would just have to sit back and read or sleep.
Tomorrow morning we will pick up Mike and Debbie Provan at the airport. We ...

... the sky briter, the buildings in perfect harmony with nature and mankind walking on the streets in flip-flups, shorts and t-shirts imprinted with funny slogans, all resembling to God or to descendents of Byron and Wild. Of course, there are also Portuguse among the mankind population of Sintra, the older local women, all dressed in black, sitting on the bancks placed on the sidewalks along the streets. As Saramago said, if they could remember who they are...The ...

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
