The hotel is very nice and, the staff were great. The reason for my mediocre rating is that from the town of Sintra to the hotel is a one way road. To go from the hotel to Sintra is at minimum a 40 minute drive. We missed the hotel the first time and it took an hour to get back to it. It is difficult to park in Sintra so if you don't mind walking into town it is about a 10-15 minute walk on a fairly steep grade, but it gets you to the historic area. We had friends saying at a hotel in Sintra and we had to pick them up the last morning. We were told it would be okay to go the wrong way down the street early in the morning, but if we were stopped by the police we were not to say who had told us it was okay. Other than that the hotel was very nice. Breakfast was a little lean, but okay. If you don't have a car, go for it. If you do, be forewarned.
