“Smart, modern hotel....”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The hotel is in a good and quiet location.
Check in was efficient and friendly.
Our room was modern, spacious and very clean.
The bathroom was small but well decorated.
Dinner was included in our room rate which was really good. The food was fresh and the staff were really lovely and welcoming.
The bar in the hotel is really nice and welcoming.
Breakfast was basic but good, no complaints.

Room Tip: We stayed at the rear of the hotel, no noise what so ever.

We were booked here to go to Machu Picchu and it almost ruined our experience. Hotel is under construction and our room was not ready for guests. Food in the restaurant is awful and over priced. The staff is polite but mostly incompetent. I enjoyed every hotel we stayed at in Peru and Ecuador except this one. Don't stay here.

This was a clean, uber modern hotel. It was comfortable, although loud, as it's made of poured concrete. Also lots of street noise (and construction), although you can't escape it in aguas calientes. I would stay there again, as the rooms were so clean, beds comfortable. A great option pre- or post-Machu pichu.

El Mapi would have been an okay hotel in Agua Calientes, but its entire site is under heavy construction as old building is being demolished. The whole hotel, lobby, hallways were filled with concrete dust, and workers transporting the demolished material thru on their way to get rid of it. Dirt and dust were everywhere, and it was enough to cause eyes to water. During the day the noise was terrible, and during the night, the dust hung over everything. The hotel was, and probably will be among the best in Agua Calientes, but that is not saying much. Would highly recommend if you are in the area to visit Macchu Picchu (and why else would you be here?) that you consider the following plan. Arrive in Agua Calientes late morning or noon and catch the bus to the top. This will get you to the site after the early large crowds have come and gone. Enjoy the site with less people around, then if you wish to spend the night to see it at sunrise, stay at the Sanctuary Lodge, and when you're done in the morning, take the train back thru the Sacred Valley to Cusco. The staff at El Mapi were very gracious and helpful, and the bar was a great place to socialize. The dining room was also nice. But the overriding construction makes this an unacceptable stop until it is completed.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere until the construction is completed. There is no way to get away from it.

El Mapi is a comfortable room in the quaint town of Agus Caliente, but not much else. Although the bed is big and comfortable, it takes up 85% of the floor space leaving very little room for 2 people to navigate and store baggage. During peak times when guest are getting ready, the showers run cold, which is unfortunate after a long day hiking the Inca Trail. Te internet is very spotty. The most disappointing characteristic, however, is the restaurant. Our breakfast and dinner at El Mapi were by far the least enjoyable meals my wife and I had during our 7 days in Peru. For the steep price, I would recommend that people consider other hotels in Aguas Calientes.

Location location location. This property tries to look chic, but the decor is more IKEA. Bar and restaurant are very nice. We booked a triple room but upon entering, there was only two single beds (there are four of us as stated in reservation). Instead of moving us to a bigger room, they added a third single bed to an already super tight space. There was literally no place to set foot after the bed moving. This is not to be confused with Inkaterra, their sister resort, which I wish I had stayed. When asked about walking tours which was written in bold block letters on their wall for chic factor, the front desk had to call Inkaterra. My tour guide said we could visit Inkaterra and their garden for free. This was not the case. To visit the garden, it will be 60 sols ($20) per person. Breakfast and lunch buffets and the 3 course dinner were very good. Staff is friendly and helpful, at times a little confused. Room is the least desirable part of this hotel. Bathroom was smelly and very very basic. Room price is written in block letter on the wall too. For the room you get, definitely not worth the official price.

Modern, clean and well appointed room. Comfortable bed. Slightly jokey feel with type stencilled everywhere in room (mirror in bathroom advertising happy hour/ shower curtain re towels rather than usual notice etc). Service in bar and restaurant was not great. The Happy Hour deal which clearly says 2:1 relates only to cocktails (not beers) and the "free" pisco is tiny. Food was good in circumstances as this is a stopover for many tour groups (mainly French and Japanese when we were there), who can be somewhat overbearing - make sure you sit in the right area at dinner (which is included in the room rate) or else you'll have problems!

Room Tip: In two blocks, one is closer to Restaurant/ bar but nothing to differntiate really. You'll get w...
