We stayed at the Hacienda del Valle for 3 nights before our Inca Trail trek, just getting used to the high altitude. It was very comfortable - we had a large room with comfortable beds and a great tub in the bathroom. We also had our own private little patio through a back entrance, but it was never warm enough to sit out there (always shady). The grounds are quite lovely and, for the most part, this is a quiet place. There were lots of noisy people rolling luggage down the path outside our door very early on the third morning, but that is really not the hotel's fault as much as it is just inconsiderate guests.
Both an asset and liability of this hotel is its remoteness from the city - you will be quite a long way from Urubamba - so unless you want to use taxis for the several mile ride into the city, you are pretty much left to wander up and down the countryside grave/dirt road where this hotel is located - which we thought was interesting. Fortunately, the hotel has a small restaurant that served a buffet breakfast and dinner (limited menu) - plus there is a small bar if you're inclined to want a drink (which isn't advised for those trying to acclimate to altitude).
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here - the staff and ambiance were pleasant, and we were able to rest well before starting our trek.
