“Excellent!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Good hotel, just a few minutes from the train station (by foot). Quiet environment, much cosier than the more hectic old centre.
Perfect breakfast, helpfull and pleasant personel. Good rooms, good beds, free wifi, clean and modern.

The hotel is a short walk from the railway station and a pleasant walk into town. It is well decorated with a contemporary theme and a fantastic garden to sit and enjoy a (free) coffee (unfortunately no tea available). There was a large selection at breakfast.
We had a room to the rear which enjoyed views over the garden and valley.
The only downside was that the next door property is being renovated and during the day we had to contend with noise both in the room and in the garden.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear have views and small balconies.

I stayed for two nights at the Sintra Bliss House in July 2014. Loved it. It advertises itself as a kind of guesthouse/hotel but I think boutique hotel is probably more accurate. Super nice and helpful front desk people, okay breakfast, no bar but you can get beer from a vending machine and there is free coffee next to it.

The building was clearly not retrofitted, but gutted and rebuilt, so everything is in great shape, including the lift, which can be dubious in the old retrofitted hotels. Lots of nice touches everywhere, the owners clearly have a vision for the place and it shows. A very comfortable, relaxing place to be.

Our room had a good TV, electronic safe, and a fantastic view from the openable full length window. The bathroom was modern (like everything else). My only negative comment at all is that no matter how you closed the shower stall door, a lot of water ended up on the floor. That's pretty common with the style of showers in many European hotels and doesn't bother me, but my hunch is that if they don't fix that they may get odour problems in a few years.

Although the Bliss House in not in the historic town of Sintra (it's a short enough level walk that even I managed it) its location is great. Right by the train station (so very close to where you catch the famous Bus #434 that takes you in a loop around all the main attractions and brings you back to the train station), in a quite neighbourhood. The corner store across the street sells wine and the proprietor was very knowledgeable and helpful about Portuguese wine. A lot of the highest rated restaurants are practically on the hotel's doorstep so for eating out it's probably a better location than the historic town of Sintra itself. We ate at Apeadeiro (about 100 metres away) the first night and liked it so much we ate there the second night as well.

Sintra is a popular day trip from Lisbon, taking only about half an hour on the train at an extraordinarily low fare. We decided to spend a couple of days in Sintra rather than do it as a day trip, which was well worth it. It did occur to me that, given the Bliss House is right by the Sintra train station, and the train delivers you to Rossio train station in Lisbon, which is very central to everything in Lisbon, and given it only takes about half an hour on the train and the fare is not much more than a single metro ride in Lisbon, staying at the Bliss House and making a day trip into Lisbon is an attractive option.

Recommended.

We stayed there for two nights and enjoyed the Bliss House. Its located just 3 minutes from the train station and around 7 minutes to the old town. Quiet and with good buffet breakfast. Also coffee machine is there available all the day (and night :) long ... it's really nice to have a sit in a garden with a cup of coffee and relax a bit.
Staff was helpful and room was comfortable - only problem was that there is a space under the door so its easy to hear noise from the corridor.... we stayed on the ground floor so it was a little inconvenience.
Bathroom was clean and modern, although would be nice to have some cosmetics there.
All in all we had a god stay in Bliss House and would considered coming back again.

Room Tip: garden view room would be more quiet

We stayed here as an alternative to staying in Lisbon and were not disappointed. It is in a great location and a enjoyable 10min walk to the Old Town. Breakfast was good, staff were very helpful, the wi-fi worked and the room overlooked the gardens. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet and yet handy spot in Sintra.

This is a small modern hotel located just 15 minutes walking to Sintra historic center. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are quiet, modern, clean and some have a great view of Sintra's hill. It might be a little hard to find parking if you rented a car but staff can help you to find the free parking spots which are pretty close to the hotel. Breakfast is also good and there is good coffee for free plus you get also good WiFi for free even if you have several devices.
In summary if you want to stay in Sintra just book this hotel.

I decided to stay at Sintra Bliss due to the wonderful reviews and was not disappointed. Coincidentally it was also my birthday while I was here and so begins my reason for writing this glowing review. In the morning my girlfriend surprised me with cards she had bought from home with her which i opened in the morning (as is the thing to do) and left them spread around the room before we ventured out for a fairly tale journey to the surrounding castles and palaces, only to return back to the the room to discover a birthday cake and card waiting for me on the bed. This typified the excellent and warming stay we had at the Sintra Bliss and why I would highly recommend it to anyone planning on staying in Sintra. Plus the the location and the modern rooms are excellent.
Thank you Sintra Bliss for making my stay here a memorable one.
