My mother and I (in our 30s and 60s respectivelly) had a wonderful weekend stay at Pensao Nova Sintra. We arrived on a Friday afternoon from Lisbon and were able to check in early. Our room was on the second floor and had a fantastic view of Sintra Villa and the Moorish Castle. The room had two twin beds placed quite close to one another, a small sitting area with TV, armoire and a small bathroom. Everything was exceptionally clean. There were two heaters in the room and we used both at night when the temperature got quite chilly. The bathroom was small but very usable. And the WIFI was great. They have a computer you can use in the lobby or they'll give you a password to get on their wireless network from your own machine. I was able to Skype with no problem.

One of the best traits of this pensao is its location. It is a 5 minute walk from the train station and just a 10 - 15 minute walk to Sintra Villa. There is a small grocery store just a few blocks away as well as many bank machines. It is right on the main road so if you go in the summer months and want to sleep with the windows open I'm guessing you'd need earplugs.

We had breafast everyday in the dining room and the coffee and bread were great. The owners recommended lovely restaurants for dinner that were cheap, local and served good food. I think the price performace of this pensao is excellent. We felt very safe & well taken care of while not spending too much money. It was our favorite place we stayed in while in Portugal.

We stayed three nights at Pensao Nova Sintra, and we can't say enough about Rui Bernardo and his excellent staff, especially young Luis. We arrived early in the morning, jet-lagged from Canada, and Rui had our fresh, bright and lovely room available for us on the first floor overlooking the patio and with a superb view of the Moorish Castle. Our room was very well appointed, and breakfast, served in the cheery dining room, was more than adequate: fresh rolls, cheese, cold cuts, yoghurt, jams, butter, juice, coffee or tea. We also highly recommend having a mid-day meal at their patio restaurant -- the quality and quantity of the food is excellent. My husband enjoyed fresh pargo, which was rarely available on the rest of our trip.
Rui was also extremely helpful, offering dinner suggestions, recommending sites to see, etc. We were given a home number to call at any time if we had any questions or needs, and indeed, upon our leaving, Luis insisted that wherever we were in Portugal, we were welcome to call for advice! We knew this was genuine -- they could not have been more accommodating throughout our stay. Rui even sent us off with complimentary chocolate-covered almonds and a replica of Pena Palace!
The location is excellent -- a short walk from the train station arriving from Lisbon, and the establishment, Rui's birth place, is bright, clean, well appointed, and maintained with love. But it's the friendly and helpful attention that is the real plus: Rui even contacted our next host in Lisbon for us to ensure arrival time, and promptly made sure we knew exactly how to reach our destination, using Virtual Earth.
We look forward to a return visit, and recommend their small hotel absolutely!

I spent three nights at the Nova Sintra in May 2008. A fine hotel with a great location in a wonderful area. I actually stayed in two different rooms at the hotel. The first night in a full-bed room on the second (3rd by US definition) on the back of the hotel. The other nights in a smaller room but on the first floor on the front of the hotel. Both were very comfortable.
The hotel is perfectly sited for exploring -- and when I asked Rui Bernardo about where to buy the one-price all day ticket for the Scotturb busses, he gave me one gratis -- saved about 8 Euros I think.
Breakfast is simple -- bread, cheese, meat, yogurt, juice, good coffee.

We loved everything about our stay in Sintra, except that it was too short! This hotel has a great location -- very close to the train station and walking distance to all the sights (or the tourist bus). The hotel room was neat and very clean, they stored our bags for us after check-out, gave great meal recommendations and helped us with any questions overall, they were really terrific! The terrace is also a huge plus, it has a great view of the castle and is a great place to lounge in the sun. I would definitely return to Nova Sintra!
