El Mercado

El Mercado

El Mercado is a quaint and stylish 4-star hotel ideally located in the heart of Cusco. Only about 4 blocks from the main square in the city, Plaza de Armas, the hotel offers indulgent comfort and convenience during your visit. Check out how you can include El Mercado on a trip to Peru in our Authentic & Transformational Peru itinerary.

Accommodation at El Mercado

The 32 rooms at the hotel blend perfectly with the historic building which is a former farmer’s market. Comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, and stylish decor by a local designer are the norm at El Mercado, and the building structure allows for a wonderful courtyard with fire pits and live music on chilly mountain nights.

The hotel offers single, twin, and double rooms along with junior suite and suite options. The range of room layouts and options can meet almost any travel style or need – and the design makes you feel like you are in the trendiest hotel in the city, which it might just be.  There is an onsite restaurant and bar, and breakfast includes a buffet and a la carte options.

Responsible Travel at El Mercado

We especially love El Mercado because it is owned by Mountain Lodges of Peru, a network of adventure travel experiences, hotels, and high-end lodges that emphasize social and environmental sustainability.

Mountain Lodges of Peru sponsored the creation of Yanapana Peru, a non-profit Civil Association that works on community development in the Andean Highlands. The organization has a similar mission to our partner non-profit, MEDLIFE, so we are proud to partner with El Mercado and Mountain Lodges of Peru on responsible expeditions in the Cusco region.
