We went here and stayed for a week. it,s really fabulous. You enter from the road but when you walk through to the back you are perched on the edge of the hillside and feel you're up in the trees. Every room is a suite. This hotel is one of few still standing after the big earthquakeThe restaurant is five... More

We stayed a week beginning 16th of September and requested a valley view room with balcony. I can't understand some reviews because our beds and pillows were very comfortable, the room larger than average, complete with toiletries and hairdryer. The manager and staff were unfailingly helpful, especially as we had luggage that hadn't arrived. They made phone calls for us... More

If you like the idea of a traditional (as in ‘old-fashioned’) hotel then you probably won’t be disappointed. Yes, some might feel it is in need of modernising, but others will feel that would spoil it. Check out the detail of what the various reviewers say, and make your mind up before booking. The first room we were offered was... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times and this was the first disappointment. First, the room was not a superior double, the bathroom Had mold on the ceiling, there were no bathroom amenities (shampoo, bath gel, etc) . The room was so tight we had to walk around our luggage. You can see that the building is not being maintained.... More

We stayed at the Lawrence for an unfortunate 5 nights and had so many problems there! Firstly, the hotel only has two free parking spots for all of its guests, their parking garage cots 20 euro per night. We had a rental car and only got one of the hotel's free spots 50% of the time, and spent up to... More

This is a very pretty hotel, with excellent accomodations, and a great breakfast included with board. The Hotel also has a very good restaurant and is well situated, within walking distance of the National Palace and on the Bus route to The Pena and Moorish palaces. All of the Palaces are a must see. The Hotel is reasonably priced and... More

Lovely end to our Holiday in Portugal. Dinner here was perfect, lovely food, good wine list , very friendly and efficient staff. Probably our best dinner in three weeks in Portugal. The duck main was memorable and of the desserts the Chocolate cake was the winner.

We stayed one night in this small, historic hotel which was about a 5 minute walk to the center of town. Our room was on the entry level but at the end of the corridor, furthest away from the lobby. It was a suite with a large living room and a huge bedroom. Both rooms had gorgeous views of Sintra... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Friendly helpful staff who recommended great lunch places but dinner at the hotel restaurant was superb. Great food well presented and a good wine list. A table on balcony gives great views down the valley. The rooms are great, historic and very comfortable in a traditional way.

Lawrence's Hotel is a beautiful building with many attractive features & furnishings - the dining room is especially beautiful. We had a "Room with a View", which had an amazing view of Sintra. The bedroom itself was full of character but the hard bed and uncomfortable pillows let it down. The bathroom was tired and as other guests discovered our... More
