    very nice hosts, very helpful advice and great recommendations of restaurants, ironed well smelling sheets and great bathroom. a very short walk to the center.

    the mattrasses were uncomfortable, un fortunately, we did not sleep that well, though it was quiet and clean. wifi did not work well in the room better downstairs in the cafe.

    The location is on the fringe of the tourist area with two bus stops out front which go to Mafra National Palace and Cascais, must see locations. The Moorish Castle can be seen from the terrace. I spent 10 nights here as the excellent housekeeper Anna Maria and the owner Manuel,who ran the mini cafe, came up with more suggestions. Manuel speaks very good English and is charming. Anna Maria is a lovely person. I walked from Cafe Pielas to the tourist must sees in Sintra such as Quinta Da Regaleira (wonderful), Castelo does Mouros, Monserrate Palace, National Palace of Pena and the National Palace of Sintra. Heavenly place to walk everywhere. Near Cafe Pielas there is a supermarket and cash teller. Manuel will point you to local restaurants. The tourist train goes to the beach at the weekends and I regret not doing this. The local park has a little cafe that serves the best Sangria I have ever tasted. I was able to pick up WiFi in my room, on my Nexus 7, well enough to find out info and check in for flights. Enjoyed Emanuel's wife's little snacks which could be purchased at the cafe. Also had soup and pastries as well as alcohol. Felt quite safe here also. Large bathroom was great.

    It is budget accommodation and hence not that soundproof, especially with the World Cup on (which ended up watching on TV in room) but the plusses far outweigh the negatives. WiFi could be better but OK for my needs.

    Great value. Very quiet and safe. A bit removed from the most touristy part but it was only an easy 10 minute walk.

    A bit musty.

    Close to both Railway and bus station. A very nice 15 to 20 minute walk to the historic center of town. I have stayed in many hotels in many countries over the past 20 years and this hotel and city is one of my top 10 places to visit.

    Owner in the cafe below was very friendly and helpful with directions and spoke fluent English.

    Furniture basic and without much character. The double bed was comfortable enough for one person but probably not for two.

    staff is extremely friendly, rooms large enough, location close to city center

    perhaps a bit overpriced for a rural guest-house

The cafe below the pension had a slow wifi and no Printer but it works and if you need a printer go to the local library It was a good stay

    Reasonably priced for a major tourist city. Offers basic accomodation close enough to the historic center (a few minutes walk).

    Worn and very basic rooms.

    This small charming hotel is a family business with extremely warmhearted, helpful, smiling owners who also have a cafe downstair you may have breakfast at. You can feel they put their hearts in this place. It is extraordinary clean and fresh. Location is very convenient too. I recommend Hospedaria Cafe Pielas in 100%. Thank you!

    Very sympathetic, enthusiastic and helpful owner. Recommended for people who want to stay a day in Sintra. Great location relative to public transport and within walking distance to historic center. Excellent price / quality ratio

    The owners are fabulous and really make you feel right at home. As a solo traveler, that was really important to me. I love that the cafe is right under the hotel; it was very homey and quite a busy little spot, so it was nice to just sit down there and work on my computer while eating and drinking some light snacks and doing some excellent people-watching!

    The Wi-Fi often didn't connect in the room. I had to go to the cafe to connect, and then it would stay for awhile when I carried my computer up to my room, but then it would eventually disconnect. That was a little irritating!

    The room is clean.

    Cheap furniture of different design; terrible smell from the bathroom; Piela does not speak languages except Portuguese; noise from the busy street; 20min walk from the sights. The price for the room is excessive compared to other places in Portugal, but could be in line with common Sintra prices.

    The location is very handy for access to the train to and from Lisbon and for the buses to the beaches and nearby villages. The room and bathroom were great - comfortable double bed and good shower with plentiful hot water - and Manuel and Ana Maria are lovely, kind, helpful, warm and welcoming hosts. Manuel speaks excellent English and is helpful with tips on everything - public transport, where to buy things, where to find a good vegetarian meal - you name it, he will try to help you. All staff were always pleasant, friendly and smiling. And there`s a café below the hotel where you can sample all sorts of delicious Portuguese cakes for breakfast!

    There`s no fridge in the room and it is a fair way from the historic centre of Sintra, in a slightly less salubrious neighbourhood. It was very difficult to find in the car (its on a one-way street and if you come from Sintra town you have to actually drive out of Sintra, towards Lisbon and go around the roundabout and come back in to find it). Once I was there it was easy to find my way on foot to and from Sintra to the hotel. Manuel is a little optimistic in his estimates of walking distance times (or he is a very fast walker!) It is at least 20mins walk from the historic centre of town.
