We loved the location, the décor, the very friendly if somewhat disorganized staff. But on the minus side, there is a craft beer place just across the street, and crowds gather outside very night to enjoy themselves. So it's very noisy, even with earplugs. Also, no breakfast. Had I known all this, I would have booked elsewhere.
Really good value-for-money, and the rooms were cool in the heat and fairly quiet. The location is central, and the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. There's no on-site breakfast, but they have a discount deal with a nearby place.
Beware tourists. Booked a hotel for an overnight stay in Lisbon about 2 weeks before. Arrived in the afternoon after a looonnngg red eye from America. When we arrived to Casa do Mercado Lisboa they wouldn’t let us check in until 14:00 , which is fine. When we got back around 14:30, the staff told us that the room “wasn’t ours”. Then two people in charge came and told us that the room we had booked was flooded and we couldn’t stay there. They did help us find another hotel.. barely. Didn’t provide compensation to one of the only other hotel savailable (37 minutes away). Since we had to book last minute we ended up paying another 80 euros (which we tried to avoid by booking early). Also, we made all of our reservations near the hotel since we were just staying the night and didn’t want to spend too much money. To add insult to injury we watched two other parties walk in and get rooms. Still haven’t gotten a refund. Definitely not a good look to leave 3 young travelers stranded in Lisbon with no advanced warning or compensation help. Seemed like they overbooked and just felt like kicking us out since they didn’t let us know about the situation when we came at 13:00 to leave our luggage. The least they could have done was call us and let us know the second they knew. Stay away……
A lovely old building with rooms set over several floors. Our room was large, light and airy and the staff attentive and helpful. The hotel is in a great location near the bica elevator and close to great cafes and restaurants We would recommend it
We just returned from our first visit to Lisbon, a wonderful holiday made even more special due to this B&B. A 5-minute walk from the Tagus River; in a charming neighborhood full of authentic (and inexpensive) restaurants -- we couldn't have asked for a better location. But the real treat was the hotel and especially its staff. Manuel, Maria, Mona -- all of the staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to make sure that we had a great time. And if you are into Fado music, Manuel is its most passionate and enthusiastic devotee. I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel, one of the nicest places we've stayed in a very long time.
My first time in Lisbon and staying in this place made it a more enjoyable trip. The host Manuel is definately a character, very welcoming & helpful, even going above and beyond. His recomendations for bars, restaurants and tourism was were perfect for myself and wife and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. This hotel was very comfortable and clean, well presented also and we had a room facing the main strip - can be a bit noisy at night to early hours of the morning but if you close your windows and shut the blinds you will sleep well. The breakfast (included) was very nice and freshly made to order (none of that buffett stuff) but you can have as much as you want on the menu. The hotel is located 10mins walk from the Metro line and also 15-20mins bus ride to Central Lisbon. It is also situated 10mins from the popular Time Out food market which is absolute place to be especially if you want to try the local cuisine and many others. Loved this place and would highly recommend short or long stay. …
Friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast with local snack you can eat as much as possible, very good and clean room with spacious bathroom. Adjacent to the hotel there are remarkable café bars. Walking around you can reach all the sights of the city, if you can't stand it. Otherwise in 5-7 minutes you are at the train and bus station.
If you are looking for a Bed and Breakfast feel, instead of a hotel, this is a very good option. My wife and I have nothing but praise for the staff. Manuel, the manager, checked us in, offered us drinks and provided some local insight. During our visit we hung out in their nicely done cafe on some evenings and of course enjoyed breakfasts. The rest of the staff, Maria, Miguel, Jose and Sandra were all pleasant, helpful and engaging. The location turned out to be very good. It was a 5min walk to the outstanding Time Out Dining/Market, plus a number of other neighborhood restaurants were steps away. A major subway/transit hub was just across the street from the Time Out market. If you want an authentic Fado music experience Manuel can hook you up. He connected us to Mesa de Frades, a wonderful restaurant in a former chapel in the Alfama area. Our room was a typical bed and breakfast type set up. Everything was clean, bed was comfy and bathroom a bit small but functioned perfectly fine for two people. An important note, the entrance to the rooms is actually in the back of the building. You have to be exit the cafe and walk around the corner and up a short steep street for access. Plus if you are on the 2-3 floors there are steep stairs. The staff helps with your bags. We managed all this without issues. It was good exercise.…
Best place we stayed at in Portugal! We were welcomed at check in with a glass of wine. The room was very clean and had a super comfortable bed. Our breakfast was made to order and the whole staff was great. Location was great as well, close to the river and stellar food at Time Out Market.
Top notch hospitality from Manuel and everyone at Casa Do Mercado. Booked this place at the last minute as there was an issue with our other hotel. Luckily for us we got the last room here. Really central location, close to lots of good restaurants and bars. Very close to the river as well. Not as touristy as Chiado and Bairro Alto
