These apartment are jaw-droppingly decorated, clean and well furnished. Juan, who was out contact for our stay, went out of his way to help us, even when our bikes, being couriered from another part of portugal, caused him no end of grief.
Its an easy walk into town. There really can't be any better place to stay in Lisbon.

As others have said, these well-situated apartments (only three, on the first floor of historic building) are a real treat. Super comfortable bed and a fridge full of generous provisions that last beyond the first breakfast. Right in the centre of things and close to metro for excurions further afield.
We made arrangements with Joao to drive in, drop luggage, return car to nearby rental office and walk back, but a Satnav glitch got us lost in outer burbs. After a call to Joao, we made it to car rental office, where his colleague was waiting to take us, in a Mini, bulky suitcases and all, to the apartment. Well done and much appreciated. Also given the benefit of late checkout and efficient airport taxi organisation with personal farewell. Good stuff.

we spent three nights, the place is amazing, beyond expectations. comfortable, big room, well decorated, clean and very central. the service was helpful and very friendly, we would definitely recommend it and we would definitely use it again. breakfast is provided on the first day and wasnt enough for three days, but we believe they would have provided more upon our request. overall, a great stay!

Excellent location, quiet location but very near to everything, spotlessly clean, large comfortable bed. We also had free late check out as room was available. Perfect. Not cheap, but then you get what you pay for, so I would say this was very fair value. Previous reviewer found fault with the breakfast supplies - maybe they should have walked out 2 minutes either way and eaten out or stocked up from the local mini marts? Anyway we found absolutely everything to be excellent, and enjoyed the quirky decor. Highly recommended.

Located in the heart of Lisbon in one of the oldest and picturesque streets of the city is the Palacio 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
