The hotel had all of the essentials, however seemed to be intended for short term stays. Our room had 3 twin beds in it and a stall shower. It was also very noisy with hallway traffic and heavy doors slamming. Reminded me of a dorm room in college. Bar was ridiculously expensive!

I had a very mixed experience at this hotel. On the good side, the rooms are very nice and clean, the bed is comfortable, and I had my best meal in all of Peru at their restaurant. But, you can hear into the hall easily from the room, and it was loud, and there was no hot water (ironic for... More

This very modern, chic hotel was a surprise as it is located right in the middle of the ancient village of Machu Picchu. The restaurant, bar, and rooms were all brand new and vibrant. While some reviewers have complained that there was not an elevator, my response would be, "If stairs are a problem, you shouldn't go to Machu Picchu... More

I think that one word sums up El Mapi. It is a gorgeous hotel with big, comfortable rooms. The bar was great as was dinner. It's right in the center of Aguas Calientes and near the train to Machu Picchu.

The El Mapi is a very modern hotel. While it was very clean, it had a stark, cold feeling about it. As mentioned in previous reviews the only decoration in our room was a giant quote by Louis Pasteur that was written above the bed. Well, that and a large (about 2 ft. X 2 ft.) advertisement for Happy Hour... More

I love this place! the rooms are big and spacious. They provide you with bath robes and slippers. I enjoyed the quotes on the wall. They give you a free pisco sour on arrival (delicious!). The restaurant was quite good with many options. The location can't be beat, centrally located and so close to the train station. loved it here!

We arrived by train in the late afternoon. Porters took our luggage from the train station to the hotel. We had dinner at the hotel, walked the town for short time, and went to bed. Breakfast at the hotel, walk to the bus for the ride to Machu Pichau arriving around 10:00. Clouds were hiding the mountains. Not sure if... More

A very pleasant hotel, very comfortable, lovely room, but I had two problems. The first was that in the middle of my shower the water was turned off. I was totally soapy, called the front desk and they told me that the water supply was off for about twenty minutes. They did offer to send up some buckets of hot... More

We originally booked at the hotel close to the Machu Picchu ruins but changed to this one... thankfully. This hotel is well presented and close to the railway station. The staff is friendly and helpful. It has a great bar and the restaurant is great. The buffet breakfast is very good with a wide choice of food and it is... More

Although we were advised the building works were finished they were not, with wires and cables going across the floors on the way to your rooms. The staff very helpful though slow to react to anyone in reception. Room ok, food a disappointment. If we go again, will look for another hotel
