We only stayed one night at el MaPi, but we loved everything about it, including the happy hour, free breakfast and dinner! The rooms are very comfortable and have all the necessities. We also appreciated their ecologically friendly design and approach. They took our bags from the train station to the hotel, and again the next day, met us with... More

This is your average hotel located centrally in Aquas Calientes. You are in walking distance to the train and bus station. The hotel drops your bags off at the train for no extra charge. The rooms are small, but adequate, comfy beds, basic and clean. No temperature control in the rooms. This hotel is poorly designed. The doors closing, people... More

We had a long day. Up at 3.30am, taxi to Ollantaytambo and then a rail trip towards Machu Picchu. We got off at the 104km point and spent 8 hours walking over the mountains at altitude after climbing 1000 metres. Eventually arrived at El MaPi Hotel at 4pm, pretty tired. We had prepaid (highly recommended as there was a large... More

Fantastic hotel and well located to reach everything! Great breakfast. Clean rooms. The restaurant and shops were a bit pricey but the hotel stay was not. The Wifi also worked great which is important for this part of the world. The room also came with two complimentary bottles of water which is important in a country where you drink the... More

It is a shame that I have to write an average poor review of this hotel because it should be so much better. They appear to be suffering from a lack of senior management direction which hopefully they will resolve before the busy season gets into full swing. The food in the restaurant, which is a noisy cafeteria style room,... More

Excellent location and food, staff pretty friendly. Showr is great. We stayed just for One night. Internet in The Rooms is not só fast, though. Breakfast is good, you can find variations of fruits, breads and a good coffee TO give you energy to go UP Macchu Picchu

This is a decent hotel and seems to be on the nicer side of what is in Aguas Calientes. The room was a decent size and comfortable. The downside was that I couldn't sleep because I could hear every person who walked down the hallway, up the stairs or anywhere in the vicinity of my room. It didn't seem that... More

We stayed here one night on a Gate 1 Travel tour. This hotel is very nice, probably the best place to stay in Machu Picchu. Perfect location right in the middle of all the attractions the village has to offer, which is a lot. Very helpful friendly staff, nice restaurant and bar which offers free pisco sours at happy hour.... More

Considering that Machu Pichi\u Pueblo is a remote village in the Andean Mountains of Peru, it is a very good property to spend your time before or after treking up the mountain to visit Machu Pichu. The hotel is nice, clean, modern and very comfortable. The employees could not have been more helpful and courteous. We were accomodated in a... More

El MaPi is in a good location, the rooms were clean and modern. The price was very good and included drink, dinner and breakfast. We had some problems with the locks but they were very quick to repair. The breakfast was nice and did begin at 4:30 which is helpful if you have an early start.
