There rooms might as well have no windows. The rooms have tile floors and the halls are concrete. The design is like a motel, in that there isn't a door to get to the hallway. The rooms open onto a hall that is cement. Every footstep and voice is heard. Be prepared to wake at 4 a.m. when the hikers... More

Ell Mapi is an eco friendly hotel. It is located in the middle of Aguas Calientes, everything is walking distance including the bus to Machu Picchu. If you don't like stairs, ask for a room on a lower floor because there is not an elevator. The restaurant is very good and there is daily happy hour. The bed was very... More

Very good rooms with comfortable king sized bed. Very nice a la carte evening meal included with a welcome Pisco Sour and a good breakfast available from 4.30. Hot water is supposed to be available from 4am but we still didn't have any by 5am! Checkout is very busy by 5am but there was only 1 receptionist and she couldn't... More

The hotel is good, with free breakfast, bathrobes provided and nice bathrooms, bedrooms were clean. The restaurant inside El Mapi has slow service and waiters were inefficient. Hotel is veryclose to souvenir shops, restaurants and bus station going to machu Picchu. There is construction going now so noisy during the day but at night, the workers leave.

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
