El Mercado

Cuzco

El Mercado is Mountain Lodges of Peru’s new hotel (opened 2013) in the heart of Cusco, featuring original and eye-catching interiors and exceptional customer service. El Mercado Cuzco is built on the site of a former market located just a couple of blocks from Cusco’s main Plaza de Armas. Just as the countryside’s best products are brought to a market, El Mercado brings the magic of the Apus - the spirits of the mountains - to the city.

THE STYLE

THE DETAIL

The hallmark of the experience is exceptional service, warm Peruvian hospitality and attention to detail.  El Mercado Cuzco has created something special and different in this fascinating city.  There is a fire pit in the courtyard for cold evenings and little touches throughout along with some original design that really set this hotel apart.

There are 31 rooms in total – 26 superior, 3 junior suites and 2 suites.  Each is charming and well equipped, boasting original decor. Junior suites have fireplaces and stand-alone bathtubs. Main suites are ideal for small families, or for those seeking the extra space with a terrace or a private dining/living room. Each room has Wi-Fi, free use of tablet computers, daily world newspapers, and complimentary hot drinks.

The superior rooms combine both elegant and stylish living with their sleek finishes which are both contemporary and classical in their design. The junior suites are beautifully designed and are complemented by luxury interior décor, whilst the suites have a stunning open plan.

The restaurant – La Taberna – is open for lunch and dinner and is a cool spot with great fresh market food. For those looking for a culinary adventure, or just a drink, this is the place to meet after the day’s activities. The separate breakfast room features an array of delicious dishes and even a stand preparing fresh juices and smoothies to order.
