Casa das Merceeiras is a former coach house from the 18th century that has been rebuilt into two apartments. All of the beautiful old structure has been kept, but now offering two modern self-catering apartments having each one a room and bathroom, livingroom and full equipped kitchen, cable channels T.V. and free Wi.Fi. For the comfort of guest stay we will provide hotel services, like daily cleaning, laundry services, and daily breakfast made with local products.
Casa das Merceeiras is located for your convenience right on the old Lisbon district, so around the corner from the house you have the Tram nº28, and you are 5 minutes walking from St. George castle, where you have the most outstanding views of the city.
On the other hand 10 minutes walking from the house you are right on "Rossio square" - the city center.
Also within walking distance you have a selection of small charming Portuguese restaurants still yet to be discovered by the masses, as well as small bars where you can go for a sunset drink.
So renting a car is not really necessary because it is only a 10 minute taxi from Lisbon Airport, but if you need one we will be more them happy to show you the nearest car parking.
Ganz tolles Apartment und super Support von Teresa!

Die Unterkunft ist sehr zentral gelegen und dank kleiner Parallelstraße zur Hauptstraße sehr ruhig. Das Apartment ist toll eingerichtet und macht einen hochwertigen Eindruck. In der Küche findet sich alles was man benötigt und das Bett war sehr bequem. Erwähnenswert ist vielleicht, dass die Toilette zwar abschließbar ist, sich aber in keinem für sich geschlossen Raum befindet. Uns hat dies nicht gestört. Lediglich der leicht muffige Gruch aus einem Gulli, der wohl nur Mal wieder gereinigt werden musste, ist aufgefallen.
Teresa bringt einem am Vortag alles Nötige für ein umfangreiches Frühstück vorbei, welches man sich selbst nach Lust und Laune zubereitet. Jeden Tag wurde das Apartment gereinigt und auch konnten wir unsere Wäsche dort abgeben und kostenlos waschen lassen. Leider haben wir diese am Tag der Abreise vergessen, aber Teresa war so lieb und hatte hierfür eine Lösung parat. Da wir schon nach Sintra weitergefahren waren, hatten wir uns einen Tag später kurz vor der Weiterreise nach Porto an einer Tankstelle in der Nähe Lissabons getroffen. Teresa ist extra dorthin gekommen, um uns unsere Wäsche zu übergeben. So mussten wir nicht noch einmal bis ins Zentrum fahren. So viel Einsatz erlebt man selten!
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Unterkunft definitiv weiterempfehlen.

Wow! We are so happy that we found this apartment. The location is perfect and the building charming. Everything you could possibly need was offered including tapas ,with the most delicious cheese and Vinho Verde, that Teresa laid on one evening. She was a fund of information and advice that really made our stay memorable. Hopefully we will be back.

Rarität inmitten der Stadt
Date of stay 05/03/2019
Wir verbrachten 3 Tage in Lissabon und waren von der Casa und der Eigentümerin Teresa sehr begeistert.
Abholung vom Flughafen mitten in der Nacht, ohne Aufpreis, eine gekühlte Flasche Wein und Käse als Willkommen, ein gut gefüllter Kühlschrank mit vorbereitetem Obst und allem, was das Frühstück nett macht. Kuchen, frisches Brot, Brötchen.
Ein stilvoll eingerichtetes Apartment mit täglichem Wäsche - und Handtuchwechsel liess uns heimisch fühlen.
Kurzer Weg zur Strassenbahn, aber auch alles fussläufig erreichbar.
Wir hatten ein schöne Zeit!

Beautifully restored apartments. Great location in Alfama. Host Teresa very friendly, gave us great tips on the area and left some tapas and wine in the apartment on the last night. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Wir verbrachten hier 3 wunderschöne Tage im Rahmen unseres Städtetrips Lissabon. Das Apartment liegt vorzüglich in einer Sackgasse in Alfama. Straßenbahn um die Ecke und viele schöne Sehenswürdigkeiten sind auch zu Fuß schon gut zu erreichen.
Die Unterkunft selber lässt keine Wünsche offen. Gemütlich und schön eingerichtet, funktional und nett. Teresa kümmert sich hervorragend um die Wünsche und den Service. Es fehlte uns an nichts. Sie ist immer mit Rat und Tat zu Stelle und regelt alles unkompliziert, kompetent und herzlich. Sie gab uns viele schöne Tipps.
Vielen Dank, Teresa.
Charming Flat - Amazing Hospitality
Date of stay 21/09/2018
Our host, Teresa, was amazing throughout our stay. We arrived in Lisbon only to find out that there was a taxi strike. Teresa came to our rescue and picked us up. Breakfast was replenished everyday with delicious fruits, breads, pastries, eggs, freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee, more than we expected. The flat was cleaned everyday with fresh towels and toiletries. We couldn't have asked for more. Teresa also gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit, which were spot on, we loved every experience. We so appreciated the special touch and attention to every detail, which made our stay wonderful and unforgettable.

Das originelle Appartement - coole Kombination von ehemaligem Pferdestall und Moderne - an fantastischer, zentraler, ruhiger Lage - in Sackgasse - war die perfekte Wahl!
Das Frühstück organisierte Teresa nach unseren Wünschen und auch sonst kümmerte sie sich darum, dass wir rundum zufrieden sind. Als professionelle Reiseführerin konnte sie uns viele wertvolle Tipps geben. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Danke Teresa!

Great location on a very quiet lane in the very center of the Alfama. The apartment is arranged on two levels providing abundant space to relax, and is somehow both charmingly traditional and completely modern. Teresa is a wonderful hostess, a great source of local information, and completely committed to meeting the needs of her guests. Highly recommended!

This is a beautiful rental apartment tucked away in a quiet street in the center of a lovely district - lots of bars/restaurants/views all just a few metres away from the front door. A great base for Lisbon and Teresa the host was fantastic - kind, full of ideas/advice, and supplied lots of gorgeous things to eat for breakfast together with local cheese and green wine. I would definitely recommend this place.

We were very impressed with the apartment- spacious, beautifully styled and decorated, open plan living, plus all those little extras from Teresa like daily housekeeping and a well stocked fridge. Delicious breakfasts! We used the apartment to take time out from the tourist lifestyle and were able to feel very much at home. It was lovely to chat to Teresa about lisbon and she lead us in the right direction with her local knowledge. Overall we loved our stay!

If you want to be in the heart of Alfama this is the place to be. Within walking distance to many of the sights to see in Lisbon. It is also close to catch the tram to other areas of the city. Despite being in the heart of historic Lisbon, it is on a very quiet street. The apartment is beautiful and has everything needed for your stay. Teresa is an excellent host and truly wants your Lisbon experience to be the best it can be. I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Lisbon.
Beautiful apartment at perfect locarion
Date of stay 28/04/2017
The apartment is just beautiful. It is in a very old house, lovingly refurbished. It is located perfectly in a small (and quiet) street in Alfama. The historic district of Alfama as well as the city centre is in walking distance.
The cleaning and breakfast service is great. And Teresa, the host, is extremely helpful with advices, e.g. how to avoid the tourist crowds at the main sightseeing points.
I'd definitely recommend this accomodation to a friend.

Appartement in der Alfama

Das Appartement befindet sich neben der Kathedrale direkt in der der Alfama. Es ist wunderbar hergerichtet und eine sehr gemütliche Unterkunft. Das Beste ist jedoch die Vermieterin, Theresa! Sie kümmert sich um alles, gibt wunderbare touristische Tipps und weiß für jede Gelegenheit die richtige Location, insbesondere ihre Vorschläge für beste Restaurants und Lokale haben immer überzeugt.
Alloggio a Lisbona
by Andrea & Isabella
Date of stay 04/03/2016
L'alloggio e' in pieno centro: a piedi si può arrivare in massimo venti minuti nei principali luoghi turistici. Molto bello, situato nelle antiche scuderie della Cattedrale. Silenziosissimo. Teresa e' una padrona di casa eccezionale. Parla italiano correntemente e ci ha indicato ristoranti e locali tipici, lontani dalle folle turistiche. Ci ha supportato in tutte le nostre necessità a Lisbona. Lo consigliamo apertamente.
Date of stay 28/12/2015
Eine super Unterkunft. Wohlfühlen pur. Lage perfekt-mitten in der Stadt und doch ruhig. Nette Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten direkt vor der Tür. Teresa ist eine supernette Gastgeberin, die tolle Tipps auf Lager hat, die vielleicht nicht in jedem Reiseführer zu finden sind, und die sich wirklich bestens um ihre Gäste kümmert. Daumen hoch für das Gesamtpaket!
Nice and cosy

Nice and cosy B&B in the middle of Alfama with good services form owner Therese. She is a tour guide and knows the best places to visit in Lisbon and gives good advice. Could be a little bit noisy sometimes because of deliveries to the hotel at the end of the street.

I would go back to Portugal just for this house. It was beautiful, the service was incredible, and it was located in the heart of all the sites.

Great apartment in an interesting area of Lisbon. Teresa, a wealth of information and so willing to help us and guide us in any way. Little touches, like custom ordered breakfast, " What fruit would you like?" etc. highly recommended for anyone who wants more personalised accomodation.

We had 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The apartment is in a quiet street, perfect for Enfama sights, eating and fados - and only a few minutes walk to the shopping streets. The apartment was beautifully presented and maintained - clean, well equipped and restored with great character. Teresa was fantastic - so helpful and accommodating. Breakfasts provided were also the best.

Ein wundervoll saniertes Gebäude im ältesten und schönsten Stadtteil Lissabons, gute Restaurants und das Castle in der Nähe,
das zweistöckige Appartement (ehemaliges Kutscherhaus) ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, die Mischung aus alt und neu macht es aus und man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Der Frühstücksservice ist sehr gut, der Kontakt mit der Vermieterin,die das ganze wunderbar managt großartig.

I recommend casa-das-merceeiras as excellent place. I like everything: the charm, the atmosphere, the design, the vanue-in the middle of Alfama in Lisbon. I back to place second time and the quality is excellent and kept on the same high level. The apargment is cleaned every day; very fresh and tidy. The breakfast is served individuly to guest's request or expectations. Owner, fantastic lady-Teresa is very helpful and very energetic, very open. She always finds someting what is necessary to recommend to see or to do in Lisbon. Great place; I recommend to stay with pleasure and will back with pleasure.

We spent 3 nights in Sept. in this amazing house. Teresa, the owner was so hospitable, gave us travel tips and knows the city very well. We felt totally at home - comfort level was excellent, kept very clean, with housekeeping and breakfast provided daily. It is central to the hub of Lisbon, so walking everywhere is eeasy. We would definitely return as it was one of our most memorable places.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We wanted to let you know about our wonderful stay at Casa des Merceeiras in Lisbon, Portugal The owner Teresa was great,very very helpful and always
available if we needed anything. Her apartment is beautifully restored, comfortable and centrally located for walking. A lovely breakfast was left every day for us and her cleaning staff had everything tidy - the best we had in our 3 weeks in Portugal. As a note, we booked thru you 7 yrs ago at Quinta da cao on the Douro river and will remember our wonderful stay there as well. Again, it was so well maintained, great staff and just the most beautiful spot right on the river. We hope to return there on our next trip if they are still open. We are happy to have found your website and would recommend the Lisbon casa to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the city. Thank you and thank you to Teresa for a wonderful last 3 days of
our trip! C & M, Ontario.

An absolutely delightful place to stay. Fantastic location in the oldest district of Lisbon this is a beautifully renovated house, perfect for 2 people. A maid came in every day to clean and left us breakfast for the next morning. The kitchen is well equipped so making your own breakfast is not a chore. We had a wonderful few days in Lisbon and Casa Merceeiras was excellent value for money.
