We were in Porto when we decided to stay two days in Sintra - having heard about it's beauty we could not really miss it and knowing that the place was quiet was the cherry on the cake.
Hotel Sintra Jardim looked as the ideal choice for us as it was reasonably priced, had parking space and was close to the old town - and indeed we were right.
The place is not hard to find - when arriving with a GPS it stops you at a gate where you will find the name of the hotel : that's not the main entrance - you have to back track in the road behind it and you will find a gate with a sign on it 'rooms available' - just ring the bell and in you go.
When we arrived at the Hotel I felt like being catapulted back in centuries. The hotel is basically a big villa immersed in a big garden. The place is very clean and quiet but what's impressing was the staff cordiality. We were greeted very nicely by the person at reception who attended to all our needs. On one night we went down to the restaurant to have a drink and one of the staff in charge went all the way to offer to light on the fireplace for us and was coming regularly to check it out to make sure we have a nice fire going on - we really appreciated his gesture as he looked really please to be doing something for us.
Breakfast is very good : you get typical bread, toast, two kind of jams and butter, yoghurt, orange juice, a hot drink, ham and cheese, chocolate spread and peanut butter. One one morning we even got a piece of home made cake!!
A perfect choice for those who want to be in peace and quiet and appreciated a place with character.
