The Hotel Anjo Azul, Lisbon's first gay hotel, opened in 1998. From the blue-tiled exterior to the fantastic location, the Azul is right on the money. And they've kept the same affordable rates. Right on!
The 20 rooms are downright spiffy and feel completely fresh. Each is uniquely decorated with looks that run the gamut from sleek and modern to cutesy and sweet. Artistic (and revealing) photographs of Polynesian men cover the walls throughout. Subtle and not-so-subtle phallic artwork, made of anything from twigs to ceramic to glass, peppers the nightstands. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a television with DVD player, minibar, mini-fridge and telephone. Some rooms open to balconies (request ahead). Ground-floor rooms open onto a small patio.
Bathrooms also benefit from the splashy interior design, with glass basins, stone tiling and the occasional chrome massage shower.
But best of all, the Anjo Azul is friendly and laid-back—openly welcoming gay and straight customers alike.

About the Hotel Anjo Azul neighborhood
West of Baixa, the Bairro Alto twists up a mountain. Its moody streets are bordered by steep stairways and winding alleys. The Bairro Alto is beautiful, with an organic mix of the hip, rustic, and picturesque. It's also crowded at night thanks to hot clubs, trendy bars and restaurants. Between the two 'hoods sits hilly Chiado; it's full of sophisticated cafes, museums, boutiques and theaters.
