38-40 Rua Consigliéri Pedroso
Sintra, 2710-550, Portugal
TEL: 351-21-910-5500

Lawrence's Hotel, the oldest on the Iberian peninsula, is in the center of the small town of Sintra, about thirty minutes northwest of Lisbon via car. Built in 1764, the hotel was carefully restored in 1999 and each of the 16 rooms is individually decorated with dark wood antique furniture, plush floral fabrics, wood floors, and marble and tile bathrooms. The well-known restaurant and bar are done in the country manor style: French windows, golden-yellow walls, and terra-cotta floors. The menu changes frequently but may include main dishes such as roasted duck with Rosti potatoes and berry sauce.

Room to Book:

Request a room at the back of the hotel to avoid noise from the road.

Insider Tip:

Keep an eye out for famous visitors—Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, and two queens have stayed here.
