We tremendously enjoyed this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone going to Machu Pichu and Aguas Calientes. The service was top notched, the food was delicious, the room very clean and accomodating. We cannot find anything bad to say about this hotel. The personnel were wonderful and accomodating!!

Fantastic! Top-notch in every way! Service is impeccable.
This has to be the nicest hotel in Aguas Calientes. The location is superb (still central yet not noisy). The service is above & beyond - our stay included complimentary welcome drinks (Pisco Sours), a 3 course dinner (excellent options), full breakfast buffet, pickup & dropoff of our luggage at the train station (super helpful esp after hiking Macchu Pichu to know we didn't have to run back to the hotel before making our train back to Cusco). The beds were super comfy and the down comforters afforded our best night's sleep of the trip. Too bad we only had one night here. If we ever come back we will only stay here, even though it is pricier than most in Aguas Calientes - it's worth the splurge.

During a recent trip to Peru we chose to stay at El MaPI and we are so glad we did. The hotel is wonderful with incredibly helpful staff, very comfortable rooms and a delicious bar and restaurant. Their approach is minimalist, yet you never feel like you're being cheated out of comfort, luxury and services. I would highly recommend El MaPI and I look forward to heading back someday.
