We stayed here as part of a package with llama path and it was a nice stay. The hotel was quiet and the room we stayed in had a balcony that overlooked the river and the mountains . I wasn’t bothered by the sound of the river it was kinda soothing. There was hot water for

Initially liked the decor & composition of this building! The rooms are nice, nothing stood out to be above & beyond. Obviously the river & train makes some noise but it didn’t bother us at all. We enjoyed the view from our balcony :)

Look at these other people are writing, complaining about the towel art on a dirty bed and the sound of the river like its the hotels fault the Urubamba is powerful... not sure how you missed the big ass river running through this town but ok. If you want to avoid issues like

One of the worst sleep since my military service served 30 years ago. The noise from the closed river is tough and the terrible smell of mold. Anyway, you usually pass there only few ours to rest until your visit to Machu Picchu so you can survive. BE CAREFUL: some of the rooms

If you will go to Machu Pichu and like to stay one day in Aguas Calientes, Santuario is a good hotel, you only need take care if you like hot shower, because sometimes they don't have it because have all guests take shower the same time and hot water isn't enought to everybody.

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.
