The El Mapi hotel is situated in the heart of the busy village of Aguas Calientes just a few minutes walk from the handicrafts market and where the buses depart for Machu Picchu. This stylish hotel has a sleek, minimal design and the floor to ceiling windows at the front of the building are attractively decorated with dried eucalyptus branches.
The trendy cocktail bar is a popular place to spend the evening after a day’s sight seeing at Machu Picchu
The smart rooms come with a small seating area, cotton bath robes, natural herbal toiletries and large windows allowing for ample natural light. The cafe serves enormous buffet breakfasts and the restaurant prepares locally sourced organic food as well as snacks, tapas and canapés. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back and in the evenings most of the guests congregate in the lively cocktail bar to sip Pisco Sours and share their day’s experiences.
