“El Mapi, Aguas Calientes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This very central hotel has charming staff; the bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless for our stay in mid September. Breakfast starts at 4am so rooms overlooking the central walkway and especially the restaurant/kitchen are noisy. Wooden louvres in the bathroom effectively distribute noise from other bathrooms. At US $500 for two nights, better value can be had elsewhere.

We stayed here overnight for our trip to Machu Picchu. We were given free pisco sour upon arrival which was refreshing. The rooms were adequate with contemporary decor. We had dinner in the restaurant which was good quality. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is within walking distance from the train station and located in the shopping district with plenty of restaurants around.

An attractive modern hotel (very unusual tree trunk window frontage) just a block away from the Machu Picchu bus departure point (don't forget to get your Machu Picchu entry ticket before hand or they wont let you ride). The staff were very friendly and cooperative and we received our free drink coupon on arrival which was a pleasant surprise. I can recommend the Pisco Sours. There is a restuarant with a good choice menu but there are many, many eating places around so there is lots of choice in this regard. The rooms are small but stylish and we had a very restful nights sleep on the second floor. We would definately stay there again.

We felt very comfortable in this hotel. It is spotless and has modern design. Personnel was very friendly and helpful. On arrival we got cards for free cocktails in their bar - a nice gesture and good start for the evening. It is centrally located with lots of nice restaurants with local food around, though they also organized a free dinner for our group. Wifi is free there.

Stylish hotel, just a bit different from the 'corporate' style of so many. We liked the styling including the tree-trunk windowed frontage, the quotations on the walls, the 'distressed' metal registration desk, the wine bottle chandelier and the clean comfortable rooms but what impressed us most was the professionalism and attentiveness of the staff in the dining room. The evening meal was included in our trip price and was well presented and very tasty. The buffet breakfast included a wide variety of fruits, cereals meats and chesses as well as omelette and waffles cooked fresh to order. I definitely highly recommend this hotel.

Traveled with a Gate 1 tour. This is an excellent hotel in a wonderful little town. Breakfasts are good. Dinner was also very good. Good staff, good location. Highly recommend it. Everything in town in walking distance.
