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...

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...

Beautiful and luxurious accommodations in a central location that is relatively flat. We loved the fresh ingredients in the kitchenette everyday. I do wish we had more outlets in the kitchenette, though, because we had to plug in the kettle next to the bed and the toaster near the eating table while making eggs.

I stayed in Mercador for 3 days and everything was amazing. Location was good as I was near the city centre. Room was stylish and exactly as it was on the pictures. Room was really spacious and clean. Juan was there to meet me, and he gave me information about the city - where to go, what to see, how...

For a mother-and daughter short vacation in Lisbon, we booked this nicely situated flat. It was very comfortable and enjoyable, with a great breakfast and great caring service provided by the landlord - we'd rather go there again sooner than later!

The Mercador was absolutely perfect for us. Located in a very discrete and wonderful old building, it was an easy walk to Centro and the places where things were happening.The setting was charming and the room/apartment was stylish and roomy with all mod cons. We easily walked to a myriad of restaurants - the best of which, Taberna Anti-Dantas, was...

I stayed at the Mercador for four nights. The location is good and the rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable and it felt like being in my own apartment. I have special dietary requirements and they catered for them. The staff was friendly and helpful and helped me by giving me an itinerary of places to visit in sequential...
