This wonderful house in old Portuguese style with spatial and luxurious studios and apartments is located right in the centre of Lisbon, but in a quite side alley. Our host Juan welcomed us warmly and was very helpful with tipps around Lisbon. Breakfast was provided with fresh bread, fruit, eggs, etc. in the fridge of the small kitchen area, ready... More

This apartment is a perfect choice for all, who are looking for a lodging that has not a normal "me too" hotel style. We very much appreciated the old but wonderful refurbished style of the rooms with the wooden floor, high ceiling and much space. When you stay there, you don`t feel to be a tourist but more to be...

Nice and beautifull old style studio in quiet centrally located street. Fresh fruit to welcome you and breakfast ready to be made yourself in the small kitchenette (all ingredients are taken care of). We preferred this stay over the standard luxury hotels.

A lovely welcome and well organised early check-in. Beautiful apartment in well renovated building full of character. Breakfast is left in the 'fridge each day and is fully replenished along with a huge bowl containing a good selection of fresh fruit as well as cakes/biscuits. The apartment is extremely convenient with respect to access via metro from the airport and... More

These apartments are spacious, romantic and well located. We were met by Juan who was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our trip, recommending and booking restaurants for us. My only slight criticism is that the breakfasts are not as luxurious as the apartment (e.g. Kellogs rather than locally sourced produce). I would highly recommend Mercador and would love to stay...

Hotel is perfect for couples. It has great location, interesting interior and helpful proprietor. My suggestion is to go to restaurant chef cordeiro and taste national dishes. We loved Lisabon and we are planning to come back and have another romantic weekend at Mercador.

This is one of those places that so far exceeds expectations as to be thrilling. The location is a centuries-old building, once owned by a nobleman, lovingly restored with all the amenities, right on the original main street of Portugal. It's now just off the Avenida, a charming narrow cobblestone street full of shops and places to eat and drink,... More

We stayed at Mercador for a week and it is wonderful. Great location - quiet street but very accessible to central Lisbon. Luis, the proprietor, is warm, friendly and great for Lisbon tips and suggestions. The apartment was sumptuous and quite a bargain for a European city. The fridge was always stocked, the room clean and beautiful. When we return... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
