Stayed here for one night while visiting Machu Picchu. The hotel is the last hotel in Aguas Calientes before the road leading to Machu Picchu. It's brand new, so it's very modern (DirecTV) and clean, especially the bathroom!
It's located at the bottom of a hill and a 5 minute walk takes you to the center of Aguas Calientes where the train station, restaurants, and market is located.
Ask for a room facing the river! The rooms in the back of the hotel faces a hill (I could literally touch the hill from my room) and the windows didn't have screens, so bring your bug repelent if you want to keep the windows open. Additionally, the rooms in the back are very very close to the train tracks.
The staff is helpful. There's a bar on the 3rd floor and the restaurant is on the 2nd floor. The service is top notch, as is the food (very modern).
