Nov 2012. This was our second visit to Peru and we wanted to spend more on experiences and less on the hotel so opted for El Mapi. For the price we expected it to be very basic but were very pleasantly surprised. The bed was HUGE, the room was quiet even though it was virtually above the bar, the bed was extremely comfortable and fresh, the bathroom even had little extra touches with bottles of water and lemon sweets. The restaurant was very good and the food could not be faulted. Staff very friendly and helpful. Everyone was given a complimentary Pisco Sours on arrival. The only down side (if any) was that the 2 for 1 at happy hour was very very small. The hotel was very central for exploring Aguas Calientes and after several days walking, climbing, internal flights, hopping on and off coaches and getting up extremely early every day (and a bout of altitiude sickness en route) this was JUST what we needed!!!!
