Stayed one night before going up to Machu Picchu, though it was in a package deal we had purchased thru Mystery Peru, hotel was very clean, comfortable and very friendly to any needs. Good location, restaurants nearby.
We had a limited choice of hotel from list from Inca Trail company, and had no expectation after reading all these reviews. But our rooms are clean and comfortable (2nd floor, facing the river), no issue with noises from buses or anybody else. Breakfast is...More
To start with, I wouldn't book this hotel again.
Had to change rooms due to a broken window in the shower, which allowed bugs to enter freely, which they did. Rooms were clean and simple, but the back side of the hotel seems to...More
Perfect location for peace and restful nights, with gorgeous views of the river. We stayed here for 2 nights as our home between Machu Picchu hikes. Hearing the river flow was so relaxing, and it's away from all the hustle and bustle of the touristy...More
We were on a tour so had no say in the hotels we stayed in. At first we found this one noisy, with a lot of hallway noise in the evening -- the corridor floors were all tile, so noise travelled. We were also on...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.
