When Do You Want To Go?

Boutique Hotel with Lots of Local Character and Superb Rooftop Views of Cusco

The elegant El Mercado is a relatively new property located three and a half blocks from the Plaza de Armas or Main Square, in the heart of picturesque Cusco. Formerly part of the city’s old farmer’s market, El Mercado’s 31 rooms and quaint atmosphere offer a personal and friendly service and you will be immediately immersed in the cultural and historical traits of Cusco and Peru.

Rooms are charming, cosy and boast original décor. Superior Rooms feature comfortable beds and a private bathroom, flat screen TV and heating. Junior suites are handsomely suited with fireplaces and stand-alone bathtubs, so that you may bathe while enjoying the warmth of the in room fireplace. Main suites are ideal for small family, or for those seeking the extra space with a terrace or a private dining/living room.

The hotel has a great restaurant which serves a comprehensive breakfast buffet each morning and is also open for lunch and dinner serving great fresh market food. For those looking for a culinary adventure, or just a drink, it is a perfect place to meet after the day's activities.
