We arrived in Iquitos a day early for an Aqua Amazon tour and stayed overnight at the El Dorado Plaza. The ride from the airport made me apprehensive as the town is very rundown, however the spacious entry foyer, large bedrooms with king beds, outside area with a pool and helpful people on reception quickly allayed my concerns. The showers... More

Great location, which can be good and bad. Good because it is located at the main plaza with short and easy access to most places you'd want to go. Bad because it is fairly noisy to the point you'll need ear plugs to sleep if you get a room facing the street. The place has a look of overdue maintenance... More

My husband and I are both pilots and travel a great deal in our own plane. I booked a room at the El Dorado Plaza for one night just in case weather delayed our arrival in Iquitos and departure on an Amazon cruise. Other hotels have worked with us in the past in spite of cancellation policies (how can you... More

Stayed for 2 nights before heading into the rainforest. Very noisy hotel. Great location right across street from Plaza de Armas. Must try the pisco sours at bar! Just like any average hotel back in the states.

The night before taking a tour to the Amazon, my wife and I stayed at the El Dorado Plaza Hotel in Iquitos, Peru. First, the hotel is an oasis within a city that doesn't support a lot of tourism or hotel accommodations - at least that's our opinion. Not that this hotel is the only place to stay but we... More

Timewarp into the 1970s :) architecturally at least. Iqutios idea of 5* is very unlikely to be your idea of 5*, I couldn't really see this as more than a 3*. I moved here from the Victoria regia, I got a double room was much bigger, modern bathroom with a bath as well as shower and a long soak was... More

Took a day room here and was neither offended nor impressed. The rooms are dated and dowdy and need to be overhauled. My room's windows were covered in green algae. The bathroom reflected an institutional design. The public areas are quite decent and the pool looked nice (but the weather was too rainy to jump in). The service was certainly... More

We only stayed for one night after a boat trip on Amazon. We were told several times, this was the only five star hotel in Iquitos, so we were interested to see what it was like. First the good things: The service at reception (whenever we used it) was excellent. Efficient, friendly, helpful and all done with a smile. Our... More

We spent one night here on our last night in the Amazon. Very good service and a clean and comfortable room. Not sure it warrants a 5 star though. We had hot water but they didn't provide enough terry. One suggestion is that although our room had a beautiful view of the plaza, it was loud until late at night.... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely one of the best hotels in Iquitos. Facility and room are decent.They provide shuttle service to the airport. Only remark we had was that there was music playing from the bar all night.
