This is the sort of hotel you expect at a place like Aguas Calientes - everyone is there to visit Machu Picchu and then move on - as a result it doesn't need to be that good or luxurious - just do the job and keep people warm, dry and fed. It does just that...
Plus points: friendly staff, good left luggage so you don't have to drag things up the hill to MP, decent breakfast available from 4am - important so you can get to the first bus... We had an evening meal included which was well cooked and tasty and saved braving the various restaurant scams going on in town.
Minus points: small rooms, basic decor. Most annoying very limited toiletries - one cheap shampoo sachet each and some soap. This is a particular problem because greedy PeruRail insist that you can only carry one hand luggage on the train up - so you will almost certainly have cut back on toiletries (in favour of clothes, waterproofs, cameras etc) assuming the hotel would provide some.
Overall: OK - could do better.
