You definitely need to hire a car.The hotel was very nice but having to cross a large cobbled parade ground (especially in the rain) to get to the restaurant was not ideal. Disappointed that there was no outside space for leisure .

Queluz palace is a wonderful location close to busy centre of Lisbon and sights of Sintra. Queluz Palace gardens and restaurant worth a visit in their own right. Staff were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

This pousada was in a part of the palace but separated from the main building and the old kitchen where the restaurant is by a huge cobbled car park area..
Rooms were large and charmingly furnished and I was lucky to have a room with 3 windows which made it quite light but windo

How much is the cab fare from the Lisbon Airport to the hotel? How long is the ride?
Hi, We booked our taxi through the hotel. The driver was waiting for us when we landed and picked up our luggage. He had parked in a very convenient location in the indoor parking garage. The fare was 40 Euros I think. Maybe it was 45 Euros, I don't remember. It was not 50 Euros. This was a very nice car. Immaculate in fact. Coming back to the airport from the same hotel we paid 10-12 Euros including a tip. The car and driver were good. He off-loaded us at a very advantageous place for getting into the airport; we are grateful for all of that. This was our very first time to Lisbon airport. Next time it might not cost us so much to get to the hotel from the airport. I don't know that either. Likely you could just get a taxi from the line-up outside the Arrivals; or wait with your belongings at the Departures entrance and hope to get a taxi departing the airport. It would be a gamble of course. Maybe just calling the Reception at the hotel and asking for a suggestion of a cheaper fare. Maybe ask them to arrange a round trip taxi originating in Queluz might keep your cost lower than we encountered. Best of luck with it!

A Pousada fica muito longe do centro lisboa? existe transporte que faça esse percurso? vale a pena ficar na pousada Queluz e passear alguns dia em lisboa?
Em verdade, nas proximidades da pousada tem uma estação de trem que vc pode ir lá a pé tranquilamente . Nesta estação vc deve pegar o trem que vai a Lisboa e descer na estação Rocio. Demora uns 25 minutos. Mesmo assim acho mais tranquilo vc se hospedar em Lisboa, pois fazer o percurso ida e volta Queluz - Lisboa por mais de um dia vai ser meio cansativo.

"Rooms on the first floor have small windows but ground floor ones give immediately onto the public carpark"
"Try for a room with maximum windows."
"We didn't see any good rooms. If you want a good room, go elsewhere."
"Quieter rooms at the back but a good view of the Palacio de Qeluz from the front"
"The ground floor rooms are all easily accessible, quiet and close to reception and the breakfast room."
