Historic Hotel


Short description

Mountain Lodges of Peru’s newest hotel in the heart of historic Cusco


Recommended for:
City | History & culture


Set in the premises of a former market in centre of historic Cusco, the gateway to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, El Mercado is the latest offering from Mountain Lodges of Peru, featuring eye-catching interiors, first-class customer service and one of the best locations in the city, just a couple of blocks from Plaza de Armas, Cusco's main square.


Rooms at El Mercado are spacious, welcoming and feature elements of traditional décor with modern touches. All rooms and suites come with wi-fi, cable television and a luxurious marble en suite bathroom with rain shower, while Junior Suites include a fireplace and huge stand-alone bathtub.


El Mercado's La Bodeguita Restaurant serves a delicious home-style cooked breakfast with fresh juices, while the hotel's La Taberna Bar, open for lunch, dinner and cocktail hour, serves fresh market food, tasty tapas and a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.


While this historic, boutique city centre hotel has no leisure facilities, it offers guests the perfect location for exploring the sites of Cusco and as the perfect base for adventures into the Andes, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley.
