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

We stayed there just one night during our south america trip. Wish we had more time. Great location, top service and very nice and friendly staff. rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. Dinner in the own restaurant was also very mic, as well as breakfast. We might come again, if time allows

We loved this 14 room very private Hotel and especially the staff. As we visited on a lull period, the staff consisted of three people. No detail was missed, however. Kudos to server and bartender Gabriella and Chef Diego. Muchisimas gracias!

I took my family to the Northwest region of Argentina in July 2013. It was a challenge as my kids are 10, 7 and 4, the Nortwest region is vast and you spend a lot of time in the car. I must say it was a wonderful experience, and one of the highlights was our stay at La Merced del... More

We had a good experience staying at this hotel and would definitely stay there again (especially with the discount for paying in cash)! The staff was very attentive and courteous. As others mentioned, I didn't get the same warm feeling that I get from some of the staff at smaller establishments, but I wouldn't hold this against them. The beds... More
