This hotel is nice, great location. Make sure to ask for a room facing the back or it will be noisy, especially over the side road. The train echoes in the canyon, which is really neat. They serve a fantastic breakfast and he staff is...More
Perfect hotel...quiet, comfortable and clean rooms. Good breakfast and a great location for making your way around Aqua C and located fairly close to where the buses pickup for the ride up to Machu Picchu. Would recommend this hotel and suggest staying for more than...More
We stayed here on our trip to M.P. because everything else was booked. It is a clean hotel with nice staff, but it needs some TLC. The blankets in the rooms are woefully old, the comforters are circa 1980. Polyester and starchy. No box springs...More
The hotel is very close to the bottom of the hill. Close to the bus station to go to Machu Picchu and close to the train station. You will have to walk up hill to everything in town.
Rooms are clean and comfortable enough but...More
This hotel is fabulous at the footsteps of Machu Pichu. First rate restaurant, tea service, full breakfast plus buffet breakfast offerings. Full Bar, Spa, Butterfly Garden, Day room for trekkies coming down La Montana after check out time. Clean comfortable rooms and superb personal service.

The train station is outside of the local crafts market. You have to traverse across the market to get to town. The town is on one side of the river, the train station and the market on the other. The main bus station is on the town side of the river just across the river. The hotel is on the main road going up to Machu Piichu. The concept of "blocks" is not quite correct as the town is very narrow and not laid out in blocks. But distance wise, the hotel is probably a couple of blocks from the bus stop.
I cannot speak for the hotel, but when we were there they were very accommodating. When we checked out we had an afternoon train and they stored our luggage from our morning checkout until we left. I would expect them to hold it until you returned to check in.
It is a short walk from the train station to the hotel and the only difficulty would be the road and construction. There are some sidewalks, but some were closed for construction. We traveled quite lite so it was no problem for us. Then it is a short walk back up to the main buss station. It is easy to find since it is right on the street, is marked by a sign, and generally a line of people waiting to go up the mountain. I think the schedule was for a bus every thirty minutes, but they leave as fast as they are loaded. We usually had to wait one bus.
Buy some bottled water in town before you go up. There is no eating in the ruin, but your ticket is good for reentry so you can exit and get something to eat and then re enter. There is an expensive place to eat up there plus a snack shop. We bought a sandwich down in town and then carried it and ate it up there, outside of course.
Your plan is very feasible. We also spent two days there. I really enjoyed the hotel, Machu Picchu, and the town. I am sure you will enjoy yourself.
