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

... winds were enough to soak us
completely. I honestly wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Mist
from the mountains rolled in toward the castle and left you with a
mystical feeling never felt before. Walking from tower to tower, the
walkways looked similar to the great wall of China.
After getting pretty soaked at the
castle we decided to walk the rest of the way to the Pena Palace, a
few hundred meters up a steep cobblestone road. The ...

The grounds at Quinta de Regaleira also reflect the former owner's views: the lower grounds are organized and have many footpaths and stairs, while the woods in the upper area are left wild and untouched. The grounds also have many tunnels, fountains, two lakes, waterfalls, grottoes, and wells. One well ...
... The wet misty conditions are common enough that among the many foreign and introduced plant species in the wooded park that surrounds the palace are California Redwoods. This wet west coast location of a different continent at a similar latitude to their native range is probably one of the few places on earth outside coastal California where they can grow.
Much older than the Pena Palace is the Palacio Nacional de Sintra in the historic center of town in Sintra, a ...
... with real force and energy. A place like no other with a lighthouse and many paths to wander around some of whch lead to stony crops of giant rocks lower down the cliff- awesome!! The praia istelf is a laid back surfers paradise, they are all running in and out of the seas with their boards most of the time as the spring tides bring the best waves. We admired them from the safety of a cafe over a beer, or in the evening from the van itself.
... after all the sightseeing so we decided to indulge in one of Lisbon's world famous Portuguese tarts. The line for the bakery was massive, but the tart was well worth the wait! Tomorrow morning Melissa, Shivaun and I fly out to Barcelona, Spain - our very last destination! Adeus por agora, Miss Burns.
