Our Inca Trail and Machu Picchu tour booked our hostel stay in Aguas Caliente. They booked us at Santuario Hotel because their normal venue was under renovations. I wouldn't call Santuario a hotel. It's more of a hostel. It's got no frills.
Very nice hotel. Comfy bed, hot water, good water pressure, western toilet. Great views of the mountain. Bar in house but when we wanted a drink no one was there working. Staff especially Roberto were great! He met us at the train station, carried our...More
We did have to walk up to our floor, but it was fine. Comfortable beds, clean bathroom & we were able to charge our phones & cameras. Staff were friendly & helpful. The breakfast was served early enough to get a bus at 5am so...More
Santuario Hotel was recommended to me by Wilson (bartender at Sonesta Posada del Inca in Yucay of Sacred of Valley between Urubamba and Calca). It is a no frills place. It is comfortable and clean, and they have a portable heater to keep you warm...More
Clean hotel, friendly staff, just a little walk from the town centre so very quiet. We overlooked the river which was soothing for sleeping. Only spent one night so hard to comment. Breakfast was ready at 5am so we could depart at 5.30 for the...More

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.
