“if you own a beneteau yacht ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

... the bathrooms will look familiar. But before I review this hotel, let's have a discussion about something few Europeans and those in blue state America seem to want to address: parking. Perhaps it is because they are used to paying through the nose for it back home. At this Ibis there are more than 20 free spaces out front and on the sides that are free. Below ground parking is 1€! I was told. That's amazing regardless of where your are. If you go to Sintra to visit the palaces, understand that there is free parking at all the palaces except the one in "historico" Sintra, the double cone thing. So there may not be a need to stay in historico Sintra unless you really want to. Yes parts of it are quaint, etc., but it is also a tourist trap. And in the high season, the palace parking lots may be full. So if your visit to Sintra is NOT in the high season or you can get your butt out of bed early and get to the palaces early to snag a free parking space, the Sintra Ibis might be a good choice. Just do some research. There are buses to the palaces for a fee from historico Sintra. Anyway the Ibis is a fairly new hotel with well-engineered sound proofing so there is less noise coming from the tv/sex/kids next door, above, or below. I realize that euro-snobs may turn up there noise at an Ibis and ymmv depending on the Ibis. And this one is in a commercial zone. But access is good. Our room was right next to IC19 and we didn't hear a bit of traffic. It was sparsely furnished but clean, sort of euro modern Bauhaus. And as mentioned the bathroom was reminiscent of the head on a beneteau sailboat but bigger: gleaming white fiberglass and faux-teak floors; almost cocoon-like. We stayed here for three nights in February to explore Sintra and have little negative to say about it. IC19 is right there and historico Sintra is a straight shot once you are one it. Coming out of Sintra on IC19, take the second 13 exit to Mems Martin. Google maps incorrectly shows the location of the hotel if using there routing instructions. The only negative is the breakfast. You don't have to buy it and it is a bit pedestrian. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Staff very amicable and helpful, fantastic night, soft and large beds.
Very clean, far away from city center, in order to get there you'll need a car.
You can find a shopping center (Forum Sintra) just a few minutes away
Highly recommended

We are a French couple from Montreal Canada, we did a trip of one month in Portugal this last October 2013 and we stayed in 17 hotels. We stayed at this Ibis 1 night October 21st 2013. We went to 4 Ibis hotels and we all appreciated them. For sure, this is not real “Portugal” life but for people from America, sometime it is good to have “western” comfort. Price: 39 Euros without breakfast. The breakfast is 6 Euros each person and is good. Pros: room well organized with a large table to work on, comfortable bed, quiet (you hear nothing from the other rooms), Cable TV with a lot of channels (English or French, etc.), free Internet Wi-Fi in the room, free parking available, bathroom with a counter to put your bathroom supply. Cons: very small room, far from old city you need a car. We highly recommend that hotel

We stayed here for 1 night and used it as a base for exploring Sintra. We arrived early and asked on the off chance if we could check in early which we surprisingly managed at 11am!
There is a bus stop outside the hotel with regular services to Sintra.
The hotel is clean modern and comfortable typical Ibis.
We had breakfast which again was standard IBIS.
The hotel staff were exceptional nothing seemed to much trouble!

I visited Sintra two weeks ago, and stay at the Ibis. The hotel it self offers clean rooms, good ADR, and good location. I manage a hotel in miami beach, and what I felt in love with its the staff. There team was very professional, and they give a hommie feel.Obrigado Joanna, Pedro from the bar, and Pedro the security.

Ibis is a known name but theyadvertise a 'restaurant' it is not a restaurant it is food heated up by microwave machines! We paid an unbelieable 10€ for 5 prawns which had been zapped in the microwave followed by a duck dish with rice which was also unedible. I wondered why there had been a sign outside the entrance to a restaurant 300 metres down the road - anyone visiting - follow that sign! The breakfast was edible but basic.

Room Tip: If you want a bed and nothing else - then use it.
