“Great place to stay in Sintra”
Reviewed 17 December 2011

We had a great stay in this pensao, unfortunately, it was just for one night. After visiting a few other pensaos in the area we decided on Monte Da Lua because the owner was so friendly and the rooms were definitely the prettiest in town (at least within our budget). The owner went out of her way to make us comfortable, and even brought us a kettle to boil water so we could make our own tea and coffee in the morning! Fantastic customer service. My only knock would be that the beds really slanted down toward the middle but not enough to disrupt a night of sleep or anything. Convenient location. You can't go wrong with this choice.

Whether you are traveling with family, on business, or with your partner, you'll find whatever it is you're looking for here - whimsy, fun, inspiration and romance are here at the Monte Da Lua. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a two evening stay and our only regret was not staying longer. It is conveniently located walking distance to the train station and is situated on a hill overlooking sweet Sintra. The owner, Silvia, recently refurbished the guest house - beyond it's clean, contempory-yet-homey vibe, you will find the most comfortable beds in all of Portugal. And if you know Portugal, you know this is hard to find. I have already recommended this inn to my family and friends - two of which are planning to stay next week. The views are breath-taking and local cafes and restaurants around each corner. And perhaps best of all to us Americans - FREE WI-FI - we can only go unconnected for so long!

Owner speakes fluent English, and was very helpful ( the info person at the train station was not) . Right across from train station, easy walk to the center of Sintra Vila, also an easy walk to to the bus station where we got a bus to Mafra. Very close to the bus stop that goes to the vila, the Moor castle and the Pena Palace. There is no internet at this hotel, but there is an internet cafe 2 doors away. No breakfast, but many restaurants in easy walking distance.

Really special pensao right accross from the train station. Friendly matron. Tasteful "traditionally" decorated rooms. Tiny bathroom (shower / basin / wc / bidet). Absolutely stunning views over the Sintra woodlands from the (tiny) balcony. Good value for money. Blankets could do with a replacement though.
