“Lovely stay at this delightful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stayed one night at the El Mapi Hotel. It is located right down town in Aguas Calientes. The rooms are small but clean and modern. The folks at the concierge even arranged for a private massage in my room. They gave us coupons for a free pisco sour at the bar, and to our surprise, a 3-course dinner was also complimentary. The only issue was the noise of doors closing from other guests who were leaving at the crack of dawn to get up to Machu Picchu to catch the sunrise; nothing ear plugs cannot solve though. I highly recommend staying here.

We all liked this modern hotel in old Peru. The nature quotes in the room were a nice touch. We loved the free pisca sours at happy hour. The bar and restaurant were nice and the service friendly and spoke English. It is on a small street full of shops and restaurants. One problem was they ran out of toilet paper in the middle of the night after spicey Peruvian food and no one available to bring more. It is funny now but not then.

Room Tip: As in many small hotels in Peru, there is no elevator. So unless you are a mountain climbing backpac...

This hotel is great in Aguas Calientes. It was modern, nicely decorated, clean, great staff and service, our rate included lunch and dinner which were nice.
The room was very nice and comfortable. They have wifi. Location is perfect. Close to the Bus station to go to MP.

Bar staff was friendly and drinks were awesome!. Service was good overall, as the hotel was very busy.
Our bed was huge and very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and well appointed.
Overall a great hotel.

If you want a modern hotel with all facilities at reasonable price, this is the place.
Room and bathroom were smart and had everything required. An electric heater was provided as it gets cold in June. The inclusive dinner and breakfast were fine. The hotel will collect / / store /deliver luggage to and from the train station to allow you to maximise your time at Machu Pichu. The buses to and from MP work very well so it is no problem being based in Aguas Calientes. Overall a good choice for an overnight stay.

We were here to visit Machu Picchu of course. Location was decent, hotel looked quite nice once inside. Restaurant was quite nice, and the included food was actually quite good. Especially for us North Americans with kids in tow. Room was small and simple, but ok. Room was more like a 2* room. Very basic. The rest of the hotel much bring the rating on this hotel up. Bathroom small and basic, beds small and basic. Used computers and internet, worked well. Has small, nice gift shop as well.

It was difficult for us to find a right hotel in Aguas Calientes. Some of them are too expensive over $1,000 per night, while others are cheap but look outdated and crappy. El MaPi falls in between those categories. It is three star hotel but it is obviously more that that. It is very clean and modern looking. The room was very spacious; we had one bed room and one living room.
We wanted to stay Inkaterra but it was not available on that day, so, we decided to go to El Mapi operated by Inkaterra. We really enjoyed there.

Due to the terrible delay of Peru Rail, we arrived in El Mapi very late at night. The kitchen normally closes at 9pm, however, they waited for us and served dinner although it was after 9pm. Great service. Thank you.

We spent just one night at this hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. It has a very contemporary vibe. The rooms are quite nice, and the breakfast that was included was the best we had in Peru (and begins very early for those who want to catch the sunrise at Machu Picchu). To our surprise (and delight ) the price also included dinner and free Pisco Sours at happy hour. The location is terrific---on the main street about 5 minutes from the train station and market in one direction, and 5 minutes to the busses to Machu Picchu in the other.
