Why Stay Here?

“Top gay accommodation in the heart of the Bairro Alto” - TripAdvisor, Reviewed May 30, 2016

Swissbear07 The location of the guesthouse is in the heart of the Bairro Alto. Restaurants, shops and public transport is nearby. Also the gay area is very close. The owner and the staff have been very friendly. The room was small, but very clean, quiet and quipped with a computer. The breakfast was delicous. A large choice of fresh food. It's really a very good place for staying in Lisbon. So we can really recommend it.


TwoBadTourists Quite possibly our favorite place in Lisbon and one of the only gay hotels in the city. It’s a relatively new property that just opened in the spring of 2015. This old building was recently gutted and converted into a small, 12-room hotel with an awesome staff and incredibly intimate feeling. The outdoor backyard is a social area and has a nice pool, grassy area for laying out and a lounging area where you can order snacks and cocktails. The breakfast buffet is delicious and slightly different each morning. The rooms are simple, clean and modern. It’s located in the Bairro Alto in one of the best locations in the city.




The Late Birds Lisbon is housed in a completely restored, late-18th century building with twelve very comfortable climate-controlled rooms, lounge, beautiful garden and UV-treated swimming pool.

The idea was to create an urban resort for the gay male community located in the heart of Lisbon’s historical center, Bairro Alto and Principe Real, where guests are treated as friends.

The owners designed the Guesthouse to feel welcoming and comfortable, as though you are at home among friends. The decoration combines classical freshness with the contemporary look of Portuguese design. Some memories from the old building and owners' private pieces throughout the common areas provide a friendly atmosphere and a fine gathering place to enjoy socializing with the hosts and other Late Birds guests. The lounge, bar and garden are perfect spaces to celebrate birthdays, gay weddings and special events or just celebrate the warmth of being among friends. As a Late Bird guest, feel free to invite others to join you and be part of the Flock.

A Late Bird: A bird that tends to fly in a flock of twelve, enjoys socializing, escaping on beach trips, and enjoying the activities of an urban centre, especially its night-life.

And one thing is for CERTAIN: Late Birds look out for each other, and if one Late Bird needs another, the whole flock will fly to their same-feathered friend.

Take heed: Late Birds mean business and love all others at the same time.

The Late Bird flew to school, and all the while was thinking about its fellow feathered kin. However, they knew that later that night, during their Late Bird weekly meeting, that the longing of wanting to be in the presence of other Late Birds would be fulfilled and they would all together have a grand time and do what Late Birds do best... be awesome!
