I must be the only person to be negative on the hotel. Firstly the view is fabulous and by far the reason you come, totally stunning. The hotel has an ancient charm about it and the rooms are old and not greatly maintained. However my sons room (we had three) smelled a little and were moved immediately. I found it... More

Beautifully built in a very nice setting, La Merced is an oasis in Cachi. Big rooms, lovely restaurant and bar with nice fireplaces to keep you warm, is just one of those places that make you want to stay a little bit longer. Good service and nice food to top it off. The only downside is that it is a... More

We spent just one night, but would have stayed longer. The room was spacious, as was the bath - with lots of hot water! We enjoyed playing cards in the large livingroom complex prior to a delicious dinner at the restaurant. The gift shop has quality merchandise (a welcome relief from the cheap touristy stuff that prevails in most shops... More

We have stayed one night in La Merced del Alto and it was a shame to arrive as late as we did. The views surrounding the hotel are spectacular and the hotel in itself is also nice to spent time. The hotel is really nicely decorated in an old classical style. The only downside is that in winter the brick... More

White, rendered building standing in open countryside yet only 2 or 3 km outside Cachi. Delightfu,l airy well furnished public rooms. Well furnished bedrooms with views over open countryside. Clean outdoor pool with recliners and extensive views over surrounding countryside. Good service and food both at dinner and breakfast. Family run hotel.

peaceful paradise in the middle of nowhere. The road from Cafayate requires a 4x4, we had a poor Ramonda Chevrolet which I don't know how had taken us across 5 hours of bad road but we made it. The hotel is very well run, clean and the dinner/breakfast is very good. Wine list is not bad either with some wines... More

La Merced del Alto is built as a classic and beautiful convent in a wonderful setting above Cachi overlooking the beautiful landscape below the dramatic Andes. It provides a great recluse setting from your travelling, and is a great vantage point both for exploring the beautiful town of Cachi, and for trekking in the region. The restaurant is very good,...

An oasis a little bit outside of Cachi at 2180 m, awesome panoramic view to the mountains in all directions. Building seems renovated, but it is new, designed by the architect to look like a monastery. Some fancy solutions here and there, particularly in the lounge, but rooms are very bright, airy and comfortable. No aircondition. Windows have mosquito protection... More

I was a little hesitant driving up to this hotel on the several kilometers of dirt road you have to take to get there. Once you arrive, the first impression is that it is an old wine estancia that was converted to a hotel. That impression was maintained upon check-in, when we were told that there are no rooms with...

We traveled all over Argentina for our honeymoon for 3 weeks, and this is the single place that I decided needed to be reviewed. It was an absolutely idyllic stay on what was a remote roadtrip through Salta province. The terrain is already beautiful (in a unique desert sort of way), but the surroundings of Merced del Alto were exquisite.... More
