We stayed here for 2 nights on a family vacation in May of 2013. It was a great hotel, well located right in the center of town. The lobby, bar, and restaurant were very modern and very nice. We enjoyed the breakfast here the best of any on our trip - the omelette and waffle station were great, although the lines were long with tour groups. But the food was never out and they seemed to keep up with the demand well.
We stayed in room 217, at the end of the hallway. It was a nice room, clean and spacious, but we had a rooster or two outside the room that woke us up every day around 4:15am. This was not ideal as we were on vacation and had very long and busy days.
The hotel is right in town and very close walking distance to the buses up to Machu Picchu and to the train station. There are lots of restaurants nearby to choose from.
We would recommend this hotel as we were generally happy with it. We booked as part of a independent tour company so I am not sure how much the price was, but it seemed like a nice moderately priced hotel room.
One tip: We bought the boxed lunches through the hotel for our day at Machu Picchu. They seemed expensive (I think around $15 USD) but the food up at Machu Picchu is so expensive that it turned out to be a good decision. They gave you a grilled chicken breast sandwich, a few snacks and fruit, and a water and juice box. I would recommend doing this.
