We spent two nights at the Mercador Lisboa and really enjoyed our stay. We texted the rep when we arrived at the airport and they met us at the Mercador, with keys and detailed instructions and local recommendations. Pros: -Very helpful staff, both before and during our trip. -Beautifully decorated, spacious rooms with large, comfortable beds and pretty sitting areas.... More

Beautiful, comfortable and luxurious rooms in a 17th century palace, ideal location, nice hosts. And than the fresh fruit in the room, which helps you to remover after a days walk in the city in the hours before dinner.

Had a great stay at the Mercador, the flat had everything we needed and was very close to the centre of town. Bed was ginormous and comfortable, two bathrooms etc. Did lack an iron/ironing board which were needed and requested unsuccessfully - but that was the only criticism. Fridge was always stocked and room was cleaned every day.

Very central and easy to get around, with a little kitchen that we can prepare food for ourselves. But it's a bit annoying that there was no reception so there was noone that you can ask for anything!

Mercador is located in a 17th central building that was once a ducal palace. The street is parallel to the high-end shopping street Avenue Liberdade and within easy walking distance to several metro stops. The apartments are spacious and comfortable. The points that detracted from our stay were that the apartments were a bit dark, the narrow street the property... More

Our room was huge and well-equipped, perfect for a long stay, even though we were just there one night. Kitchenette was stocked with a variety of ingredients -- eggs, yogurt, cheese, sandwich meat, bread, cereal, etc -- plenty to make breakfasts and lunches for a couple of days. I assume the staff would re-stock as needed. There is also a... More

Located in the heart of Lisbon in one of the oldest and picturesque streets of the city is the Palácio do Mercador ("Merchant's Palace"), a building whose first record dates back to 1565.Resisting the earthquake that struck Lisbon in 1755, the owner at the time knowing of the presence in the city of the Milanese plasterer Giovanni Grossi commissioned him the decoration of his palace, according the rococo style, coating ceilings with beautiful stucco, the walls with tile ("azulejos") panels and decorative paintings that we can still admire.Over the five hundred years of its existence, the palace was home to many famous people who marked the society of their time through politics, culture and overseas trade.Over the past five years the palace has undergone a profound restoration and conservation, promoted by the current owners and executed by the company CRERE, which brought back the splendor and dignity of other times. ... more   less
