The best lodging in Urubamba, Peru, is the Sonesta Posada del Inca Yucay. I am giving directions here.
Plaza Manco II 123

The location is in the Sacred Valley of the Incas surrounded by beautiful mountains in a simple, quiet, impeccable town. This I notice about the areas of Peru that we’ve seen. They are very clean despite not having clean water and millions of Peruvians drinking bottled water daily.
The Sonesta Posada Hotel is a former 18th-century colonial-style monastery. It’s just a one-hour drive from the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco and close to Machu Picchu. Walking along the streets here, the afternoons are so mellow — young people sit in the playing field under trees talking. Lazy dogs nap at most corners and are neither aggressive or friendly. The weather here is warm year-round. Yes, I can tell you this is the very best place to stay.
