Charming and quaint while grand and clean , La Merced del Alto was an absolute pleasure to stay at. We were only there one night (unfortunately i wish it could have been more) and were treated to an amazing dinner and wonderful wines. The cellar has a robust selection of local wines and the amenities are very top notch without...

Probably the most beautiful hotel of our Argentina trip. In a stunning location outside of the charming village of Cachi, this place should not disappoint. Professional staff, beautiful common spaces, great views from the room. Very quiet hotel, with spacious and tasteful rooms. A perfect place to decompress & explore the surroundings. Make sure you catch the sunrise over the...

We stayed two nights at the La Merced del Alto. The hotel is set amongst the mountains of the Andes and feels like entering an ancient white-washed converted monastery or nunnery but with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel, perfect. Large rooms, deep, comfortable beds with crisp cotton sheets and cavernous bathrooms. It's only drawback - it's not...

Fantastic place, great rooms and garden. very quiet. Great views. It looks like a colonial building but is brand-new. It is indeed pretty expensive compared to other hotels in town but if you enjoy waking up and looking at the Sierra, listening to birds, that is the place. Nice restaurant & wines We would especially recommend it if you need...

A mile away from Cachi, a really unspoiled gem of the Cafayate valley. All newly built but a well done copy of a colonial style monastery. You have to look twice to see that it is not original. Perfect but unpretentious service by a very friendly stuff and delicious food and wine cellar. The lama steak tartar was fabulous. Nice...
