The Mercador is a fabulous experience in the beautiful City of Lisbon. The welcome and information that we received on our arrival was second to none, being greeted at the entrance and our baggage carried to the apartment . We were then given lots of tips and advice on what to see, this being our first visit to Lisbon was most welcome. Finally Jaon gave us his personal mobile number to contact him any time day or night if we had any problems whatsoever whilst visiting. The refrigerator was well stocked for breakfast and fresh fruit replenished daily. The decor and furnishings were exemplary, the location in the centre 3 min stroll from the Avenida Metro couldn't be more convenient. We will definately stay again when we visit Lisbon.
