We were making last minute reservations for Sintra over the weekend and selected the Tivoli.
We had a little trouble finding the hotel but since it's located on the main plaza of the hotel it had to be me.
I'll get the one negative out of the way up front, the garage is not for the fainthearted. Tight turn to get in and tight parking.
The location is great. Right in the middle of things. Easy walking to the main sites.
The staff was great. I could not praise them enough. Yes, the rooms are a little dated. But they are good sized, clean comfortable and a good bathroom with a good shower. Plenty of English channels, but an old tv and not a flat screen. But if you get a room with a view and balcony (which I recommend) you won't care about what's on TV.
A little bit of street noise at night but nothing unreasonable.
And the breakfast was fantastic. Really a classy European hotel breakfast.
And for parking you can always park for free a little outside of the historic district and move in closer at night since the town empties out after 6 pm.
