We arrived at this hotel after over 100k of driving on twisting, narrow gravel roads. We were tired and dusty and this hotel was just what we needed. The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. We had a view of the country side and kept our windows open so that the cool, dry air could circulate in the room.... More

This hotel has rustic charm and the views surrounding it are breathtaking! It's a no frills hotel, there are no televisions, they use actual old fashioned room key's although it does have wifi. The food is creative and highly recomendable! The staff works hard to provide a real retreat where you eat incredible food's, and sleep soundly in clean quiet... More

We travelled for 3 weeks in Argentina mixing youth hostel, top hotels and regular hotels. Among the top hotels we have been to La merced del alto is my favorite. We were treated as VIP, the room was beautiful, the swimming pool was refreshing and had a view on the mountains, the stay was very relaxing. I would definitely recommend... More

While on first arrival this hotel presents well - a hacienda style with a simple but stylish decor - unfortunately it is let down by minimal service, lack of English speaking staff, low maintenance and basic amenities in the rooms. Reading other reviews I am surprised as our experience was vastly different. The pool was not clean, there were no... More

La Merced is a convent inspired small hotel in Cachi with beautiful views of Cachi's surrounding mountains. It was a wonderful rest after our tiring trip from Cafayate. The service is superb although we did not eat at the restaurant, the breakfast was very good.

Nice hotel in a super quite surroundings, with very friendly and multilingual staff (which is not as frequent in small villages). Both breakfast and dinner were excellent, agreeable atmosphere, excellent service, good advice on wines, ... The views on every side of the hotel are stunning, with a nice pool.

What I Liked Most: The food, the location, and the design of the hotel. What I Liked Least: The young children of the family that own the hotel use the common areas as a playground. The hotel is nicely designed and has the feel of a converted convent, though it is in fact purpose-built, and is only 7 years old.... More

La Merced is a lovely hotel with wonderful staff. Rooms are spacious and charming, the restaurant serves excellent food, and the setting is beautiful. There's not much to do in the area but if you're interested in a quiet retreat in a lovely area , this is a great choice.

My husband and I were traveling with another couple in Salta and rented a car to drive around the province and stumbled upon Cachi and the amazing La Merced del Alto. After looking at hotel/hostel options in town, we saw the sign for La Merced and drove there. We didn't have a reservation but the lovely and gracious Silvina who... More
