In Aguas Calientes, we spent a night at Inkaterra's El MaPi hotel. We were welcomed with a complimentary Pisco Sour at happy hour, and our agency's reservation included a lovely prix-fixe dinner as well as breakfast. The rooms in the hotel were ultra modern, very IKEA chic and clean. We loved the view of the mountains from our window, though... More

Hotel was situated close to markets, restaurants and bus to Machu Picchu. Our room was small but well appointed with a large and very comfortable bed. The contintenal breakfast was basic but adequate and the staff friendly and extremely helpful. Would recommend.

If you're looking for a nice, clean, affordable hotel, located within the heart of the town, this is your place. Short walk from the train station, bus station to Machu Picchu, and a large market to buy your souvenirs. The rooms are spacious, and within walking distance to any place in town you wish to visit. Only negative, the elevator... More

Second trip to Machu Picchu, first time @ El Mapi. Somehow this hotel is strikingly modern with unique rustic touches, using locally available materials. Beside being environmentally conscious & energy efficient, there are, what appear to be recycled materials used for the furnishings. El Mapi pulls all this off quite successfully. Probably the most unique, modern hotel that I've stayed... More

El Mapi is a right in the centre of Aguas Calientes – close to restaurants and shops. It’s a short walk through the markets to the train station, and the bus to Machu Picchu. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and rooms are very clean, with an eco theme throughout the hotel. Bags can be safely stored if you are... More

This is a very contemporary hotel, with a welcoming reception. Staff were fast and very on the ball, everything was done efficiently. The room was clean, contemporary, with a great shower. However, the room was extrodonarily damp, the bed sheets were damp and you couldn't leave your clothes out of the suitcase, as they would be wet. Dinner was delicious... More

This hotel is in the gorgeous little town of Aguas Calientes on the way to Machu Picchu. Rooms appear brand new and are very modern with comfortable beds and monsoon showers. Dinner and breakfast are included in room prices, therefore we expected a cheap buffet for each but were pleasantly surprised by the excellent a la carte menu for dinner... More

Super chic hotel in the heart of the town. Modern amenities with an eco-conscious theme running throughout the entire building. The lobby is an international meeting ground for travelers in various stages of their trips. Good breakfast offerings, clean and well-lit rooms, attentive staff. Good for singles, couples, families, and groups. Walking distance to Machu Picchu bus, the main market,... More
