We had originally book three nights at this hotel, but because of rain and mudslides, we were advised to return to Cusco two days before out flight home to be on the safe side. We informed the front desk attendant that we would be cancelling...More
After 10 trips to Peru with OAT, I would have to say that this was the best hotel that we have stayed in. The rooms were very clean, smelled nice when we entered, and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast buffet was great with...More
This hotel is right on the street next to the river with easy access to town but the rooms are very basic with poor lighting, internet and bathrooms. The breakfast is basic as well and the staff, while very nice, haven't been trained on hospitality...More
We found the hotel very comfortable and staff very friendly and helpful. It was a cool night and they had a heater in the room to use which felt great! The river is across the street and you hear it rushing by. I liked its...More
We stayed here as part of a package with Peregrine tours.
The location itself is on the main road and away from the town centre. It probably only takes five minutes to walk to the centre of town anyway.

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.
