We stayed at El Mapi after a one day inca trail trek, we turned up at Reception around 5pm, and were processed quickly, and the member of staff was very helpful. With our room came dinner and breakfast, but unfortunately the only time slots left were 6pm or 9pm!, 6 was going to be a rush as we desperately needed... More

I would skip this restaurant, it looks nice, but the food is just OK. They never replenished any of the dishes for long periods of time. There were a lot of tour groups. Service was poor, there are better options.

My wife and I spent 1 night at the El Mapi hotel during Sept 2014 while visiting Machu Picchu. The hotel is pretty simple. Our room was clean and comfortable but the decor is nothing fancy. Unfortunately, the toilets were backed-up when we woke up the next morning. They had sewer covers open and were working on the problem INSIDE... More

Gate1 booked this hotel for a 7-day Peru tour from Miami. PROS: -Hotel location is close to the bus depot and train station -Buffet breakfast included custom omelets. -Convenient electrical outlets in rooms CONS: -There is still plenty of construction going on (enough for at least another 12-months) although we did not hear any noise after 6pm. This will be... More

We stayed a night here before going to Machu Picchu. It has a cool design, rooms have slogans on the wall, an enclosed interior walk way leads to bar and redtaurant. Breakfast starts at 4 AM so you can join the bus line early. The restaurant food is hearty and tasty. At dinner they give a Pisco Sour to you..... More

The hotel looks nice, but it's overpriced and had the worst service I have ever experienced on any continent (I have been to 5). The short story is that the front desk is pretty inept. They have no elevator and I had to walk about 5 flights of stairs. Plus, the guy lead me up the wrong stairs at first.... More

We stayed here after our 4-day Inca Trail hike and it was the perfect way to recover from our adventure! They do an amazing job of creating a special retreat in the very hectic town of Aguas Calientes. We were greeted with great perks upon check in, like free breakfast and dinner, free pisco sours, and the biggest, most luxurious... More

Originally I was going to give it 3 stars because I felt like maybe our room had been a bit worse than the other members of our tour group because we happened to be right next to the construction, but they had similar problems in the morning that we did. There is no buffer between the doors and the floor... More

Great modern hotel in the middle of traditional Peru. I would recommend this hotel to everyone looking for plenty of amenities. Directv was a big plus. Service and staff were the best. We stayed here on our way to Machu Picchu.
