Star rating:
3 star hotel

3.7

A fun, gay-friendly hotel in Lisbon’s party neighbourhood.

In the eclectic Bairro Alto district, this is just the place for weekend revellers looking to stay in the thick of the action. I like it for its fun party vibe and spot-on location.

Location

The location is the main sell here. On the western edge of Bairro Alto, you’re on top of the city’s best bars and nightlife, so it’s a simple drunken stumble home every night. There are also loads of excellent restaurants nearby. The cafes and shops of Chiado and Baixa are a 10-minute walk and the historic Alfama district is a 10-minute tram-ride. Easy.

Bedrooms

This is really a crash pad for party people, so most of the rooms are all pretty small. They’re also designed simply, in bright colours, but are very clean and pleasant. While the third-floor rooms are the largest, the ground-floor rooms each have private, tiled terraces with small tables and chairs. The front-facing rooms are the brightest but also the noisiest, which isn’t a problem if you’re one of those making the noise.

Public areas

There’s a very small lobby, draped in rainbow flags with a small seating area. But there isn’t much need to hang out here, given the buzzing nightlife that’s found on the hotel’s doorstep.

Eating and drinking

There isn’t any breakfast served, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a decent café nearby. There’s a small bar, but there are better watering holes within yards of the hotel.

Service

The receptionist is very cheery and friendly but not as on-the-ball as in other hotels.

Who stays there

Everyone is here to party. However, while this hotel is marketed as a gay-friendly place, it does attract a lot lot of straight folk as well.

Price advice

There are discounts available if you pay in cash.
