“Damp bedding!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Disappointed after reading reviews of El Mapi. I was in room 526, in the last block which faces the other way from the other blocks, this means view of walls and roof rather than gardens. The room itself was pleasant enough and a long hot shower very welcome after Machu Picchu. A bathrobe was provided but only one towel. The position of the wc is inconvenient, (sorry), too close to the wall for people with long and achy legs, a hand rail would be useful. The staff were friendly but very busy at reception. The free Pisco sour was very welcome but took ages to arrive. The main problem for me wasn't discovered until I was in it - the bedding was definitely damp. I ended up wrapped in a blanket and discarding the duvet, which was very thick and hot. The food was good and luggage transfer efficient.

The pros: great location in the centre of town and 5 minutes walk to the train station. Clean rooms, good beds, good bedside lighting, dinner, breakfast and a pisco sour all included in the price. I had read about the noise but I had a room next to the stairs and did not hear anything. Beautiful common areas and some juice available at reception.
The cons: hotel has a slight Eco feel to it. This means a deliberate policy to provide just enough toilet paper for one night, one towel per person (no hand towels), shower only no bath and the skimpiest of amenities (bath gel/ shampoo and lotion). Shower curtain is a loud admonition in five languages to re-use your towel. The other big con is the design, as it is on a slope there are stairs everywhere, which is fine, however they are open to the elements so if traveling during the wet season get very slippery. Staff don't seem to be too bothered to mop up, instead relying on warning signs.

A very well located hotel in Machu Picchu Pueblo. 5 minute walk to the train station.
Busses to and from Machu Picchu are 10 minutes away.
Comfortable and very clean rooms,
Decoration all arround is beautiful and special.
Free wifi, excellent food and the staff is very warm and helpful.
Value for money-very good.

This was an excellent hotel with great service. There was someone at the train station to pick up your luggage and also to return it to the train when you leave. The rooms were comfortable, well decorated and quiet. They provide welcome pisco sours in the bar and the included dinner was very good with several choices. The breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious. My only complaint was that there was only two seating's for dinner, one at 6:00 and one at 9:00. Your choice, too early or too late.

Modern style hotel in a great location right in the centre of town near the train station and buses running to Machu Picchu.
Rooms were very spacious with a separate little sitting room and tv.
Hotel and bedrooms very v clean.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Food in restaurant was also very good. A little bit noisy due to location but had no problem sleeping.

Stayed for one night during our visit to Machu Picchu. The hotel was really comfortable with excellent beds and bedding, however standard rooms are a little small. Dinner was included so got to enjoy a pleasant meal in the restaurant. Take advantage of the free Pisco Sour, but I found the full size (and full strength) ones to be much better. Breakfast is excellent with loads of choice, fantastic juices and eggs cooked to order - needed when you've had one too many of those Pisco sours!

We liked this modern and stylish hotel. Our room was at the back and we managed to sleep through all the local celebrations and fireworks in the town (which apparently went on until arond 5 a.m.). The location is excellent and the dinner was very good - we had a front row view of the local celebrations down the main street. The breakfast was probably the best one we ate while we were in Peru.
