We stayed in this hotel for one night arranged by OAT. We found the room to be very clean, staff very friendly and good location. We would stay at this hotel again and or recommend to others.

Our group stayed here. I believe we were in an upgraded room, so others must have really been small. We had a window & terrace overlooking the river which made it very pleasant. Luckily we had closed the screenless windows before we went to bed...More
We stayed here one night before heading up to Machu Picchu. The place is adequate but by no means luxurious. The river is right next to the hotel, so you have to be extra careful about using only bottled water. Location is fine but may...More
I stayed here based on the reviews and the reasonable rates. At first, I loved my room with a terrace overlooking the river - so beautiful and the sound was so relaxing. At first, it was just the safe that didn't work but I wasn't...More
Aguas Calientes is not known for good hotels. Therefore, We were not expecting much when we checked in. The room was not large, but it was adequate. The bathroom was fine and we never ran out of hot water. The hotel was clean and the...More

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.
