Stayed there yesterday, and I can report that the place was clean, staff was both friendly and helpful -- sincerely taking the effort to ensure we made our visit up to Machu Piccu on time and as comfortable as possible. The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable -- even warm (it got chilly outside the past couple of nights). Breakfast is spartan, but fine. The owner offered to let us leave our backpacks there while we visited MP, and although we decided to take the packs (they were light), the offer was not unappreciated. She also took the time to ensure we understood the bus schedules, what to take up there, and when we got back and had literally hours before our train back to Cusco -- she let us sit in the lobby and use their wifi with no hassle or second look.
Per wifi, it is great in the lobby -- non-functional in the rooms we were in (second floor). I think this is the norm for Aguas Calientes hotels, so I would not let this shy me away from the place.
The hotel is close enough to restaurants and the bus stop and train station -- maybe a 5 min walk from everything. If you are looking at the map and not figuring out where they are, its just a little farther down the street from the soccer field (if you are standing in front of it), and look for the brown sign during the day or the neon sign at night.
Bottom line -- I wholeheartedly recommend the place and would gladly stay there again.
