The El Mapi Hotel

The Salkantay Trek

The El Mapi hotel is one of the newest additions to Aguas Calientes.  The original hotel was taken over by the impressive Inkaterra company and they have transformed the hotel into an excellent value for money property.  The rooms are not the largest in town but each is clean and comfortable, yet smart and contemporary. The hotel is efficient, playful and people friendly and for the amount of time you will spend in any hotel in Aguas Calientes this is a great option.

Why we recommend it:

  • Good location in Aguas Calientes
  • Friendly staff, good service
  • Small rooms, but ideal for one night
  • A three star hotel with a boutique feel



El Mapi’s design brings together a blend of classic, modern, restored and recycled materials. The influences are smart, informal, fanciful, and snazzy. The feel is of functionality and a lack of pretension.


The flowing lobby creates a sense of vitality. Lofty ceilings, panoramic windows and an open cafeteria layout allows natural light suffused through the fence of tall eucalyptus trunks into an ambience, which create a sense of order and wellbeing.

Their bar and lounge area is comfortable.  The lounge has Plasma TV and complimentary Wi-Fi, whilst the bar features a delectable variety of snacks and “tapas” as well as a wide selection of Pisco’s, and organic wines

The hotel has 48 rooms in total, 40 superior rooms and 8 superior deluxe. Each room is equipped with blackout curtains, 100% cotton sheets, down duvets, hypoallergenic pillows, cotton bath robes, natural herbal amenities, 32″ flat screen TVs and tight-focus reading lights.

The 40 Superior Rooms (20 sq.m./215 sq.ft) each has twin beds or one king bed, whilst the 8 Superior Deluxe Rooms are slightly larger (30 sq.m./322 sq.ft.)  and include a small  sitting area and complimentary mini bar.
