I did not get a good feel for this hotel or restaurant. El Mapi is centrally located in Aguas Calientes making it easy to walk around and get a feel for the town. It is very close to the train station and bus stop for Macchu Picchu. The reception staff was welcoming but placed us in a musty room on... More

We stayed for a single night at El Mapi when we visited MAchu Picchu. The hotel is easily accessible from the train and bus stations. Its closely to the handicraft market to do a quick souvenir shopping. The hotel is surrounded by really great restaurants. The rooms are cozy. The construction didn't bother us.The Hotel Happy Hour and Dinner is... More

Although the staff was friendly, the location great and the room was nice (in a Portland sort of way), it was a miserable stay. The new construction (building 5) did nothing to keep the street noise out. This might be due to the sliding glass window not being sealed, however, the street noise also came in from through the door.... More

I enjoyed my two nights at the El MaPi. Expect many steps to your room. Mine was on the perimeter of the new construction. It begins quite early in the morning but begins to shut down around 6-7 pm. The construction crew is amazing but there is simply no way to build up that hill quietly. The room was acceptable;... More

Beautiful looking hotel, nice room - very stylish. Price included a free welcome drink, breakfast and dinner. Food was good but now awesome. Construction continues but was restricted to certain hours and did not bother us at all. Biggest beef was that after spending more for this hotel room than any other that we stayed in in Peru, there was... More

Loved the decor in this place& the free pisco sour! Happy hour was also great! We had dinner and breakfast included in our rate and they were lovely, &I am a fussy eater! The reason I've not given it 5 stars is because of the construction, we were placed right in the centre of it, apart from that I would... More

It's a rather new hotel with a minimalist modern style. Very close to the train station. Good food with a generous portion for dinner. Selection of breakfast are not exquisite, but juices are all fresh. Very nice pisco sour. Too bad I only stayed one night.

Loved El Mapi!!! We toured peru with Gate 1. After a tiring day at Machu Pucchu, it was great! Beds were excellent. Shower was great and food was real good. We liked the location and the town of Aguas Calientas. Would love to go back. Yes there is construction going on in one section of the hotel but it was... More

I was very happy with El MaPi Hotel. Nice decor that complimented the surroundings, with the great location, excellent food at the restaurant with beautiful presentation and very polite employees. I loved the city of Aguas Calientes! It was my favorite one we visited.

This place is really nice. Our room was clean and comfortable. The only problem we had in the room was that we never had hot water. It was luke warm at best. The staff was very nice and helpful. The restaurant is nice but there isn't a huge selection and the portions are small. I would recommend eating outside of... More
