Just returned from an overnight stay @ the Inkaterra El Mapi Hotel. The 3 star hotel is located about 3 blocks from the bus station for Machu Picchu on the main street of town. In other words, an excellent location! The hotel itself is very generic and sterile. I would equate the room style and size to that of a college dorm room. The bathroom was a decent size with a walk in shower with good water pressure. We did come across some dead bugs in the bathroom, which was somewhat of a disappointment. Its very efficient and gets it done for sleeping quarters that are close to Machu Picchu. Our rate included dinner and breakfast. You had to pick from 3 times as to when to dine (6pm-7:30-9). We found that to be a little odd. The food quality was subpar and the service was rushed (felt like being on an inexpensive Caribbean cruise). Our desert was an uneatable piece of day old chocolate cake. I am happy to say that the breakfast was considerately better. They provided an eggs/omelet station as well as normal buffet options. Most importantly, they start serving breakfast at 4am, which is great because you stay in this hotel so that you get on an early bus to Machu Picchu before all the train guest arrives. Unfortunately Wi-Fi was only offered in the hotel lobby & bar (free of charge) and not in your room.
I would recommend this hotel for its location to Machu Picchu.
