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 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

We stayed for 2 nights at La Merced del Alto last March, and the place totally surpassed our expectations. The views and the surroundings are to die for: the Nevado de Cachi, the mountains and fields. The restaurant is very good, though you'll have to be patient with the waiter. The rooms are clean and well-tended. A place to take... More

Marvellous place in the middle of the Quebradas, like a quiet paradise with a beautiful view overall. The rooms are like in a monastery, with the comfort and the standing of a 4 stars hotel, very quiet and simple. A good restaurant with an smiling service. Swimming pool is just perfect.

If you are doing the scenic drive from Salta to Cafayate, unless you put in an 8 hour drive, you are likely to spend a night in Cachi, as we did. The drive to Cachi over the Cuesta del Obispo is spectacular, and one first impressions, La Merced del Alto also looked spectacular as we drove up to it -... More

After a very interesting drive over unpaved roads ( unpaved roads means really rocky, dusty and UNPAVED) and through beautiful scenic mountains / high plains, my wife and I reached Cachi. This hotel is situated a couple of miles from the town center. The drive to hotel was another unpaved road leading us to doubt ourselves about our choice. However,... More
