This was my life milestone trip to Machu Picchu. The way the agency organized the itinerary only left me one night here in Aguas Calientes but I could have stay longer. Reachable only by train, this is your point to stay as close as you...More
We did a full day hiking and was exhausted at the end. A hot shower was the most needed thing and the hotel did perfectly. The room was cozy and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was also pretty good. There was only one thing...More

Visiting Machu Picchu we stayed at this hotel. It was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.
It's a little older so expect this when reserving but the prices seem fair for the value.
It's in a fairly good location with just a little...More
Hotel is clean and neat, and pretty quiet. Located just down the street from where you catch the bus to Machu Picchu, it is also close to restaurants and the main square. Staff was helpful and very courteous. Highly recommend enjoying a pisco sour at...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.
