The Mercador offers a super location in central Lisbon, within easy walking distance of the city center and waterfront, just one block from the nearest Metro Station. The house is palatial and the rooms not less so. Ours was a standard studio, spacious and beautifully furnished with kichenette. Instead of a breakfast room, the Mercador provides everything you need for...

Our room was very large, extremely beautiful and unique. Perfectly located in the center on Lisbon. We got fresh fruit, cheese and ham every day. we would definitely recommend this place if you don't need an in-house restaurant.

A very elegant and comfortable room just a few minutes from all of Lisbon's top sights. A very nice bed in a quiet but very pretty room made for good nights. And every day nice products were available to make our own luxurious breakfast.

Stayed at Mercador in Lisbon and Mercador Guesthouse in Porto over over the last weekend in November. Both are excellent, very private places to stay while in either city. Loved the privacy of staying in a private apartment house. The rooms and service were both lovely. One thing to note: wifi in the Porto location was not great.

Beautiful, comfortable and luxurious rooms in a 17th century palace, ideal location, nice hosts. And than the fresh fruit in the room, which helps you to remover after a days walk in the city in the hours before dinner.
