This was fine for the night before we went up to Machu Picchu. We were met at the station and led to the hotel. Inside, there are many unexpected steps to trip you--not a good place for someone who is unsteady on his feet. They gave us soap, which was an unexpected treat, and in some ways it looks a little nicer than other places, but when you look closer . . . there was mildew on the bathroom ceiling; a sloppy paint job on the floor came off on our socks; and the walls and ceilings are very thin.
On the plus side, there was a nightstand and lamp on each side of the bed, a full set of shelves for our stuff, and the hot water worked fine. And there was a TV.
The Peru Rail train goes by right outside, so if you want to sleep past 5 or so, good luck. But it's a good place to get up early, and they serve breakfast quite early: bread, butter, marmalade, juice, coffee or tea. It was OK. They will store your bag while you go to Machu Picchu, but it's just left on a shelf, so if security is a big concern for you, this might not be acceptable.
It was $40/night, and acceptably clean & safe, and only a few blocks from the MP bus stop and the train station, so it worked.
