About Us

My Rainbow Rooms is Lisbon's finest, exclusively male, gay guest house. Our luxurious apartment, completely renovated in 2017, is centrally located in a quiet residential area in the heart of the capital, only two minutes walk from the Saldanha subway station, on both the Metro's Yellow and Red Lines.

At My Rainbow Rooms, we want our guests to feel at home so, if you appreciate three meter ceilings, modern baths, elegant furnishing and sophisticated amenities, we think you'll find it's a gay boy's dream pad... a genuine openly gay hotel in Lisbon (as opposed to all those "gay friendly" hotels chasing your pink euros!)

You can enjoy thick terry cloth robes, slippers and towels as well as Egyptian cotton linen on fluffy down comforters and pillows


After a hard day's night, we're sure you'll appreciate our three luxurious bathrooms with heated floors and spacious two-person showers


Electronic combination locks on all rooms and building doors (as well as the in-room safe), so guests don't need to worry about forgetting keys or key cards


Each room has a flat-screen TV and free access to our on-demand entertainment library with thousands of movies and TV shows


All of our rooms have free wireless internet access as well as plenty of bedside outlets to charge your personal devices


Enjoy complimentary coffee and tea, at any time of the day or night, overlooking our quaint residential neighborhood


We're confident that you'll feel at home, enjoying a smoke-free environment, in our 200 square meter private residence located on the second floor of a completely restored 1920's neo-art deco building.

Guest Services

My Rainbow Rooms is Lisbon's finest, exclusively male, gay guest house. As such, we offer all our guests some exclusive services.

Meet & Greet Service

On stays of 5 nights or longer, one of the houseboys will meet you at the airport and bring you to the apartment, free of charge! Just send your flight details, and one of them will be there with a little sign to meet you! For shorter stays, this service is available for a nominal charge of 20 euros.

If you decide to make your own way to the apartment, we suggest that you take an Uber from the DEPARTURES area (NOT arrivals!) since 1) Uber drivers won't try to cheat you and 2) there isn't a long line to wait in! The ride should cost about 8 euros, including the charge for your luggage.

Lisbon's Metro runs directly from the airport to Saldanha, which is a two-minute walk from our place in about 30 minutes. Each ride will cost €1.45 plus the purchase of a reusable metro pass, which costs 50 cents. In the Map section, we have a map of Lisbon's Metro system. There is also a regular shuttle bus service for €4.00 (which includes a 24-hour bus/metro pass) that drops you off in Saldanha, two blocks from the apartment. The Aerobus service runs every 20 minutes from 07:00 to 23:20 between the airport and all the main hotels and tourist centers.

Private City Tours

You can enjoy Lisbon on an exclusive tour with one of our cute gay houseboys... or with any one of our other good-looking, sociable gay friends who are intelligent and speak English. Availability usually depends on the day of the week and the time of day.

With this scenario, you pay your tour guide 10 euros an hour plus any expenses (such as cab rides, entrance fees, lunch, etc.) The minimum tour is 4 hours, usually starting no earlier than 10:00 (as they all like to sleep in the morning!)

Black Mercedes

The other, more traditional option is a chauffeured black Mercedes (with a professional, gay-friendly driver who speaks fluent English and is licensed by the government as a tour guide) that costs around 40 euros per hour, regardless of the number of passengers (up to 4). These chauffeurs are independent, and their rates can be negotiated, especially if you hire them for at least 6 hours or longer.

They can arrange any tour you'd like, including the best sites to visit within an hour or two of Lisbon. If you'd like more information about a private city tour, please send us a message after you reserve your stay.


Before booking your reservation, please take a minute to read over our policies regarding reservations, cancellations, checkouts, and smoking.

Our rates range from €59.00 to €99.00 per night per room (not per person) and are based on available occupancy according to the day of the week and to the season. Therefore, just like booking an airline seat, the sooner you reserve, the better the rate.

Our double rooms have one double bed and a shared bathroom; none of our guest rooms has an ensuite bathroom. For our younger guests, we now offer a luxury bunk bed in an all-male youth dormitory (our dorm is restricted to guests under 35 years old).
