New boutique hotel on the site of a former market, blending original features with a stylish contemporary aesthetic and judicious use of bold colours.
The El Mercado boutique hotel occupying a former market is owned and operated by one of Peru's luxury trekking specialists, who pride themselves on their impeccable service and warm hospitality. As the building's previous incarnation would suggest, there's plenty of outdoor space, including an impressive courtyard where vendors' stalls have been replaced by relaxing outdoor seating and the bustle of trade by an air of calm.
Inside, the hotel is a sophisticated and welcoming blend of original features and a stylish modern aesthetic. From the carved stone columns and original brickwork to the judicious use of bold colour, the attention to detail is visible in every aspect of its design.
Guestrooms and suites have a full range of modern amenities, with the romantic addition of open plan bathrooms, some with tubs which can be screened off with linen curtains. There is also a contemporary diner-style breakfast area, restaurant, coffee shop, bar and lounge, and a terrace with marvellous views over Cusco's terracotta-tiled rooftops.
