My husband and I are traveling on a strict budget — we're heading around the world for one year. We arrived in Sintra late in the day, hoping to find the youth hostel. The Hostel likely doesn't exist, or it's so far away from central transportation that we just got lost. We stumbled upon the beautiful Lawrence. The desk staff took the time to map several options around Sintra and sympathize with our situation. We left and visited a few other hotels which were equally priced, or more expensive. The properties were lovely, but none as beautiful as the Lawrence. We returned, and were booked into the most luxurious room we'd seen in months! Our own private terrace, a huge 4 poster bed, a sparking bathroom. What a magical experience. It was our luck that a rainstorm drifted over the city at night, and allowed us to laze about a few extra hours in the morning at the Lawrence. The breakfast was exceptional. Hard to believe they allowed such filthy backpackers like us in there, and then treated us with such kindness!
