Gay Friendly Hotels

Review of Klaus K Design Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Before we start with our review of the Klaus K Hotel Helsinki, we want to warn you, it is going to be a very sexy gay-friendly hotel article. Not only because of all the sexy and intimidating painting by Touko Valio Laaksonen, much better known as Tom of Finland. A must do for LGBT travelers coming to Helsinki is to learn more about Tom of Finland and the open mindset of the Finnish people who legalist same sex-marriage in 2017. The erotic artwork of the Finnish artist aka Tom of Finland

Tips and highlights for a gay city weekend in New York City during World Pride 2019, the biggest gay pride event ever to commemorate the Stonewall Riots in 1969. A Weekend in New York City – We must admit that this has been on our gay travel to-do list for a long time. But there is hardly a better year to plan a visit to New York than the anniversary year of the LGBTQ+ community’s first uprisings at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street. And so we follow in the footsteps of LGBTQ+ activists around the city of New York,

Our stay at Kumagaiji Buddhist Temple Lodging Koyasan Japan. One of our highlights and on top of our bucket list for our Japan Travels was without any doubt our two-nights stay at a Buddhist monastery in the mountains of Mount Koya in the South of Osaka. Already the way up on the mountain plateau with a cable car was stunning. But the 120 temples, the graveyards and temple lodgings around Koyasan were just breathtaking. Don’t miss the chance during a trip into the Wakayama Mountains to visit Japanese Buddhist center Koyasan (Kōya-san) and be brave enough to sleep on the

Our 10 Whistler Pride Highlights 2019 – It seems to become an annual habit, a good one we have to add. Starting the new year with a Gay Ski Week Pride trip to Canada is just the best way to kick off our gay travel plans for 2019. It was time again to pack our bags and pride ski outfits and fly over to Vancouver to attend the 27th annual Whistler Pride Gay Ski Week in the Whistler Mountains, British Columbia. The first Gay Pride of the season for us brings lesbians, gays, and queers from around the globe together

Nights to remember at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo Japan. Our first trip to Japan started impressive, different and somehow adventurous. We didn’t choose a hotel for our first nights in Tokyo. Instead, we used a unique and rare Airbnb offer to stay in an architectural icon, the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower. Designed by the architect Kisho Kurokawa, the capsule tower as a compilation of living 140 living cubes is a remarkable building of the Japanese Metabolism finished in 1972. The building is located right in the center of one of the financial districts of the Japanese capital Tokyo, Shimbashi.

Gay-owned Karnelund Krog & Rum – our gay couple hotel and restaurant review. Close your eyes and imagine yourself on a Swedish farm with apple trees full of juice apples surrounded by a wide golden cornfield. That is how we can describe the Scania landscape and that’s where we spent our last night. But not just somewhere. We stayed in a gay couple owned and operated farm hotel with southern Swedish charm and welcoming atmosphere. Gay couple Janne and Peter converted the historic cottage and buildings into a quaint hotel and restaurant.

Gay-friendly Review of The Vault Hotel in Helsingborg. The next stop on our South Swedish road trip after Mölle was the harbor town Helsingborg. The second biggest city of Scania (Skåne) is known for its beautiful old town, the ferry connection over the Øresund to Denmark and is, in fact, an important industrial location. We arrived in Helsingborg in the early afternoon checking-in at The Vault Hotel just around the corner from Helsingborg’s City Hall.

Our experience at Carlton Beach Hotel Tel Aviv Israel gay-friendly - While attending the Gay Pride Parade 2016 last summer together with thousands of handsome gay men from all over the world, we were accommodated at the Carlton Beach Hotel right on the beach side Tel Aviv Marina in Israel. With its well maintained and equipped hotel rooms, it’s amazing breakfast place, and a generous rooftop pool with bar, the Carlton has everything we needed for a relaxed holiday in the Gay Metropole at the Mediterranean Sea.

The year of Canada's 150th anniversary is the year of our first gay travels to the biggest North American country. Our first trip to Canada brought us to Alberta, the western Canadian province famous for the Canadian Rocky Mountains, incredibly beautiful nature, the world-famous scenic Icefields Parkway and its amazing food scene. But also for the well-known cities Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and, of course, Jasper. The goal of our 14-days Road Trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in March was Jasper, a small mountain town famous for its annually Jasper Pride Festival with a gay pride parade on the hills of the
