To D. Manuel I, born in 1469 and reigning from 1495 to 1521, nicknamed "The Fortunate", Portugal owes a time where the naturalistic imagery is represented in the architecture and decoration. The use and combination of flora motifs, animals and elements used in day-to-day activities by the Portuguese navigators, such as ropes and anchors, resulted in a style (known as "Manuelino") that has spread to the four corners of the world. Inspired in this great Portuguese King, this suite tries to show all the influence that the Portuguese spread across the world.
The suite has an area of 39.20 sq meters with a double bed (or twin beds on request) allowing for an occupancy by two people or three people (using the sofa bed available in the living area).
The beds have latex mattresses and display the traditional quality of Portuguese textile, with satin cotton sheets, four seasons duvet and a choice of three pillows of different densities
The suite has a sitting area with the sofa bed and can also create an ambience of a dining area with a kitchenette with refrigerator, hotplate, toaster, microwave and tableware.
Located in the heart of Lisbon in one of the oldest and picturesque streets of the city is the Palácio do Mercador (Merchant's Palace), a building whose first record dates back to 1565.
Resisting the earthquake that struck Lisbon in 1755, the owner at the time knowing of the presence in the city of the Milanese plasterer Giovanni Grossi commissioned him the decoration of his palace, according the rococo style, coating ceilings with beautiful stucco, the walls with tile ("azulejos") panels and decorative paintings that we can still admire.
Over the five hundred years of its existence, the palace was home to many famous people who
marked the society of their time through politics, culture and overseas trade.
Over the past five years the palace has undergone a profound restoration and conservation, promoted by the current owners and executed by the company CRERE, which brought back the splendor and dignity of other times.
For each additional guest a €40 charge per night applies.
