What a wonderful little B & B to stay. Rooms are nice, beds comfortable, and bathrooms spacious, clean and with plenty of towels available. I love staying here. It is the only place I am even considering when visiting Lisbon. Staff are very friendly, inclusive and helpful, even got invited along to a dinner out which was very thoughtful. The... More

I decided to spend a week at this B and B after having stayed in gay guesthouses in Cape town, South Africa, Dublin, Ireland. Berlin, Germany, and London, England, and this one turned out to be a massive disappointment. This guesthouse is located near the Saldanha metro station. It is very clean with small rooms and fairly comfortable beds.It has... More

i was invited to dinner with the owner Marc and his friend Nick the first day I got there. They were really nice people and Marc did my laundry for me, super nice location, max 10 mins walk to Saldanha Metro Station. It was a pleasant stay for me. And Marc is very knowledgeable if you get the chance to... More

An apartment of a residential building converted into a small B&B. The owner lives on site as does the house boy who cleans and sets up breakfast. There are four rooms and a lounge room where breakfast is served. The rooms are comfortable but one is tiny which is the second from the entrance. A few reasons I wouldn't stay... More

Could be such a good place - rooms are modern (though no locks on the doors). However, it is incredibly noisy - at all hours of the day and night (most of it caused by the Manager and his "houseboys"). They didn't bother about providing fresh bread for breakfasts on Days 2,3,4 and 5. All show and no substance or... More

This was a great place to stay! I am 26 so I was the youngest guy there but the houseboys were close to my age so that made it a bit better. I really should have made more of an effort to mingle with the houseguests more but I was so busy during the day with tours. I think it... More

I would recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone traveling to Portugal. The housboy's were absolutely wonderful. They were extremely helpful and inviting. The owner was also very friendly. The rooms are simple and clean. The location is great! I only have positive things to say about My Rainbow Rooms.

This bed and breakfast is exceptionally clean and comfortable; everyone on the staff is young, friendly and competent. My Rainbow Rooms is located in a central, quiet and safe neighborhood of Lisbon. I became friends with a couple of the other guests and we all went out to dinner together. I will definitely recommend this to all my friends and... More

When we arrived we were greeted by the houseboy who was very pleasant and explained everything that we needed to know... this small B&B has a very modern and elegant decor thought-out... the shared bathrooms are fabulous with huge walk in showers and the entire place is kept very clean by the live-in houseboy. Breakfast was basic but more than... More
