El MaPi by Inkaterra
Ranked #5 of 29 Hotels in Aguas Calientes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We found the hotel to be very attractive, and our room was comfortable. It was nice to have somewhere so clean and cosy to relax in after a long day's exploration. We were pleased to find bathrobes provided. The bathroom was good. The windows had insect screens, so we could get fresh air without mosquitoes. The room was a little small, with nowhere except the bed to sit.

The vegetarian pasta at dinner was rather stodgy and vegetable-free.

quirky...eco friendly...health friendly ( no elevators) well at least i did not see one...so you need to do all the climbing up and down the stairs...

well do ask your travel agent to be doubly sure when you check in and check out...just in case you got a early arrival or a late afternoon check out book in advance....else you will be sitting in its lobby...friendly staff...and you like quotes...check out the bedroom walls and shower curtain...there are pearls of wisdom every every where...right in the middle of the bazaar...has a great bar too... with awesome pisco sour...wonderful food...

its the entire package....go to machu pichu...stay at el mapi...

Room Tip: the mountain view or the street view...both are gorgeous...

We spent three and 1/2 weeks in various parts of Peru and this was easily our favourite hotel. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, the rooms spotless and the restaurant very good. The breakfast is especially fine. It's hard to have a bad time when Machu Picchu is just around the corner but the El MaPi definitely made our stay all that much more pleasant. My wife was sick at one point and the staff was very helpful. we weren't leaving until late afternoon but they extended her time in the room until we had to leave without charge. Definitely recommended.

This place was a great surprise after our trip to Machu Piccchu. We arrived with no luggage to an earlier mess up. So this was a very pleasant surprise. It had a lively bar, the bed was very comfortable. Since we didn't have any other clothes, having robes was a welcome sight! We loved the modern feel and word elements everywhere. The food in the restaurant was great. The breakfast was really good. Don't change a thing!

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!!!!

If it weren't for Machu Picchu and the expense of other hotels, this was just ok for me. It's perfectly fine and provides a place to stay. So when comparing it to other options it's probably great value which makes rating very hard. The bar was a neat spot though and the food in the restaurant was reasonably good.

El Mapi was a really nice haven of peace in a really bustling little place that was at times overwhelming.
There were lovely little gardens and outside our room we watched a hummingbird feeding on beautiful bright flowers. The room was really comfortable. We ate a few times at the restaurant and the food was a reasonable price and very good quality as was the brekfast.
The hotel was clean and modern with nice staff who were very helpful. It is worth paying a bit extra in this little place and staying here as the place itself can get a bit tiresome with the continual comings and goings so this gives you time to relax.
