I really wanted to like this place, but I had to "round down" my rating. The staff was friendly and the look was modern and cool. It was conveniently located in town. So what's not to like? It seemed sort of slapped together with Ikea level appointments and very thin walls. We had a package that included two meals --... More

Really enjoyed our night here. We were in room 115, our friends 104. Theirs had a dehumidifier in it and no outlook at all. Ours was higher and fine. Free water in room. Our included evening meal was great. Choice of 4 mains and starters beautifully presented we chose the 7.30 dinner sitting. Henri was barman and waiter and he... More

Just returned from an overnight stay @ the Inkaterra El Mapi Hotel. The 3 star hotel is located about 3 blocks from the bus station for Machu Picchu on the main street of town. In other words, an excellent location! The hotel itself is very generic and sterile. I would equate the room style and size to that of a... More

Obviously a good base from which to visit Machu Picchu. The hotel is set in a viilage location and just a short distance away is the departure point for the bus transfer climb to Machu Picchu itself. Also the train terminal is equally very close by. Indeed everything is close at hand including local restaurants and shopping. The hotel seems... More

I stayed at the El MaPi hotel for one night during a recent trip to Peru. The hotel is located conveniently close to the main plaza and to the buses which take people to Machu Picchu, and there are several good and interesting restaurants nearby. Our room, however, was very small and had no furniture except for the beds. Using... More

Check in at 3:30 PM was great and there it ended. We were on the fifth floor and could not get WiFi as advertised. The hotel is under construction and the noise and dust are awful and we felt like we had dust in our mouth way past the time the work crew left., Try and be away for the... More

We arrived after our first tour of Machu Picchu and were greated at the front desk by a very friendly staff who had already taken our bags to our room. A short check in and we were escorted to our accommodation for the night. Our staff member showed us the features of the hotel along the way and made sure... More

The hotel was undergoing renovations, which limited the availability of a bar but in no way diminished our enjoyment. The room was adequate, clean and provided all mod-cons we've come to expect. Food provided was ok and staff were both friendly and helpful. The close proximity of Machu Picchu is, of course, the 'draw' for hotels of this type. We... More

Went there for one night after visiting Machu Picchu. We were obviously tired and anxious for a hot shower and a comfy bed. Well, the surprise is: El MaPi is way better that we had thought it would be! Nice staff, amazing reception and facade, our room size was ok, the beds were comfy and the bathroom was clean and...

Our experience is a little bit unique. We were staying here for just one night before we go to Machu Picchu the next day. Like most travelers bound for Machu Picchu, we got up early and wow, it was total darkness. The hotel apparently had an electricity outage and we were left with no light and no hot water for... More
