El Mapi is only a short walk from both the train station and the bus stop for Machu Picchu. Though modern, they have tried to give it some character. Good bar and restaurant. One great service is staff meeting trains from Cusco/Ollantaytambo to transfer baggage for anyone going straight up to MP, and equally on departure, taking bags back to... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lobby, restaurant and bar are very cool, and have a great vibe. The grounds are also very lush - however, the rooms are like glorified dorm rooms, not at all soundproofed, and very small. Aguas Calientes is quite expensive relative to other Peru destinations because of Machu Picchu, so don't expect much in terms of luxury at anything other than... More

We had lunch at el Mapi restaurant after our visit to Machu Picchu area. Quinoa soup and salads were especially delicious. It was open buffet including hot drinks. I highly recommend if you visit this area.

We found the location of El Mapi to be perfect and just a short walk from the railway station, through a bustling handicrafts market and over the bridge to the main street. We liked the bar atmosphere very much and thought the staff did a great job serving the large crowd of patrons during the busy 'happy hour'. We would... More

After hiking the Salkantay Trail, and then walking along the railroad tracks in the dark from the hydroelectric plant to Aguas Calientes, it was nice to arrive at the El Mapi Hotel. The design of the hotel is very modern, and the rooms were very clean. I especially liked that they listed the Happy Hour times on the bathroom mirror.... More

Spectacular and beautiful place to stay in Machu Picchu ... I stayed in second floor of the building number three with a view to the mountains for me was excellent and was able to sleep well. After a good and scenic trip by train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes to 8.000 feet above sea level, Machupicchu village, we managed to... More

As we walked through the higgeldy piggeldy streets of Aguas Calientes, we were not expecting to step into this modern, beautifully appointed hotel. It is a fascinating blend of indoor/outdoor living as the walkways to the rooms are open to the sky and on several levels. The room was lovely - comfortable, clean and quite luxurious even down to the... More

Sleek, modern, and clean accommodations. If you're looking for a good night's sleep after a full day hiking MaPi, this is a decent hotel. No complaints about the rooms whatsoever. Front desk staff were fair, bar staff and bell boys were great, and restaurant staff subpar. Perhaps we were spoiled from all the amazing hospitality we had experienced in Peru... More

We arrived in Aguas Calientes of July 14th and were taken immediately to Machu Picchu for a couple hour guided tour. We finished our guide tour and took the bus back to town. We then had to find the hotel, which we did without difficulty. One thing that you need to know about Agusa Calientes is that there are no... More
