We stayed at Taypikala Hotel for 4 nights prior to trekking the Inca Trail and for one night following. The hotel is well located and reasonably priced for what you get. Rooms are clean and serviced daily, breakfast is great (lots to choose from!), and you’re able to leave your bags there while you’re on the trail (happy to report nothing was missing when we got back). Unfortunately the service was pretty poor (although I’m sad to say this has been the case with many of the places we’ve stayed at in South America) i.e., when we asked, “Is there a laundry/somewhere to wash clothes?” in town, they unequivocally said “No. Nowhere”. An hour later we discovered there were two just down the end of the street. Fortunately we didn’t spend that much time dealing with hotel staff so it didn’t impact our trip too much, but be prepared to be very patient while going through the process of checking in/out, booking a taxi/wake up call etc. as service is the down point of this accommodation.
