We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Mercado. Our room for 3 people was very comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. The design of the hotel lobby, courtyard and breakfast area all make you feel like you've traveled back in time - with millennial comfort. Breakfast buffet was delicious with options for every taste. Our room had a coffee maker and an electric kettle and plenty of hot water in the bath and shower. El Mercado is just a short walk (3 blocks) from the square - so it felt very central without feeling crowded. Loved the radiant heat in the walls and down comforters. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the fire pit with live music in the courtyard for happy hour.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet - we were down the hallway. I would guess that courtyard rooms might be a bit loud.

This hotel exceeded our expectations beyond belief!

We stayed here for 3 nights on our trip to Cusco and were extremely impressed with the rooms, amenities and a fantastic buffet breakfast.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay extremely enjoyable.

Room Tip: Level 3 or 4

This hotel is possibly an OK place to stay in the warmer season, but as the rooms open on to open corridors and courtyard it is pretty cold in early March. With the elevator only stopping between floors it is also inaccessible to those who cannot easily climb stairs. the worst part for us was that I was awakened during the night by being bitten on my ankles, then on my legs and stomach and later on my neck and arms. Not sure if the creatures were fleas or the immature stage of bugs. Several days later the bites are still bothersome. Management changed our room when we complained, but our trip was ruined.
There are also a number of hotels in Cusco in better locations that we would choose should we return to the city. Possibly this one was chosen for a low price as we were on an organized tour. Definitely an unforgettable experience that we hope never to repeat.

Room Tip: Upper floors are better. Not a place to stay unless you can clinb stairs.

This is surely one of the very best 4 star hotels that we have ever stayed at. very good value for money, new, modern with lots of character. Very impressed. We stayed in the Junior Suite which had a fire place in our room. Made things cozy.

I only stayed at El Mercado for one evening, but it was so lovely. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and an overall cozy vibe. The staff was very friendly. We ate dinner at the hotel's restaurant - the food was great! The included breakfast was also yummy with many different options and a juice bar! Would definitely recommend!
