Mercador Guest House

Returning to the Mercador Guest House is like coming home. A sweet yet subtle scent wafts through the halls, soft music plays in the quaint dining room where complimentary tea and biscuits await, and a quiet garden provides a peaceful escape from the city’s bustle.

Mercador Guest House

The Mercador gives an ahoy to Portuguese history with seven rooms themed around seaports of Portugal’s colonial days. Each room serves as a mini-exhibition of furniture, tapestries and artwork from far-flung lands like Macau and Goa (those Portuguese sailors knew how to get around), and the building itself was constructed with the riches of a Portuguese family who hit the jackpot in Brazil.
