On the plus side, the place is away from the bustling central Lisbon. The downside you can't simply walk to all the attractions. You have take metro or buses to get there which located within minutes from the place.

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

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

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.
