I (thankfully) stayed one night as part of a tour group. Proximity to the bus stop to Machu Picchu is a 5 minute walk. Pros: location, room was clean; shower was hot. Like another reviewer documented more fully, my room window had a window that...More
A clean hotel friendly staff and awesome view in a front room to the river
No lifts so you on the top floor hope you only have hand luggage power points few and far between in a room the need find one that works
They had breakfast out early so I could make my 7:00am start time climbing Huayna Picchu. The very steep peak just north of Machu Picchu.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and the shower was excellent.
We stayed with an OAT, Overseas Adventure Travel, tour. The old building is nice and the rooms were clean. We did have to carry our bags up the stairs but they do have help, if needed. The breakfast was outstanding. Only 3 minute walk to...More
This is a good hotel in Machu Picchu. Not far from train station or bus to Machu Picchu, central location. Staff really nice and helpful, a few small issues with English however sorted out quickly. A few issues with wifi but still decent. Lovely view...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.
