Formally known as the Machu Picchu Inn, Inkaterra’s El Mapi has undergone more than just a change in name and ownership. The new proprietors have completely renovated the property to give it a shiny, modern appearance that is evident from the first approach right through to the smart, stylish and contemporary interior that uses natural and recycled materials for the interior and exterior designs.

Each of the neatly furnished rooms has an amazing panoramic view of the towering tree covered hills that surround, and all are complete with a 32 inch flat screen TV,  a hair dryer and bathrobes, a safe and a telephone. There are 48 rooms in total; 40 of these are superior while the remaining 8 are classified as superior deluxe, which are larger, have a spacious seating area with a sofa and a complimentary bar. All rooms are available with twin, double or king sized beds.

Guests can take a dip in the heated, outdoor pool, relax at the organic spa, peruse the El Mapi boutique or unwind at the bar steeped in the elegance, which this hotel exudes. Another advantage of the property is its convenient location just a few minutes’ walk from the train station “Puente Ruinas” from where trains arrive from Cusco and buses leave for Machu Picchu.
