Lonely Planet review
Head up a long flight of stairs to this intimate guesthouse, where only gay men can book a stay. Just four of the eight small but elegant rooms have a private bathroom, but most boast stunning views of the pretty church out back. It’s a maze of catwalks, spiral staircases and sunny terraces (nude sunbathing welcome), plus there’s a tango salon and a tiny cafe.
Two Jacuzzis – one indoor, one out – translate into fun nights, and even if you don’t book a stay they’ll give out information on BA’s gay scene. Afternoon snacks and wine are complimentary, as is a closet kitchenette.
Our independent authors have visited Lugar Gay and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in San Telmo.
