after spending 4 days on the amazon with no hot water lights etc (which was still great) this hotel seems to pop up out of no where and is just the perfect treat. Very smart inside, we had a room that overlooked the square. the windows in our room were floor to ceiling loved just sitting there and waiting all... More

may be It is not fare to compare this hotel with others in Lima, but if go to Iquitos, for sure you have to be before in Lima, so, there's always a chance to compare. The hotel is very old, nothing relevant at all. the breakfast is very, very poor and the food quality need to be improved. I'm sorry,... More

We booked the El Dorado on the advice of our travel agent and we were not disappointed. At the check-in, we were not on the reservation list but it was our mistake on the date. The manager quickly arranged a room for us. The room was comfortable and quiet. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, local produce and recipes. The... More

My room wasn't available until after 7pm. I stayed there for a week on business. There was no internet in my room, often the lobby or the other room I tried. There is no printer in the "Business center". The people who worked there were very friendly but just didn't get it. I was told I should go into town... More

It is difficult to write this review because we had arrived from staying at a 5 star hotel in Lima which we loved. It is evident that Iquitos does not have much to choose from so, perhaps this is among the best available - we don't know. Overall, it has a 1960 'motel' like feel to it. We asked for... More

Ideally placed on the Plaza de Armas in the centre of Iquitos, hard to better for convenience, and some 15 years after it was built still the best jumping off point for travel on the rivers or visiting the many rain forest lodges. The Spa was closed at the time of this visit, and the fitness centre was encountering maintenance... More

we did not stay here but stopped in for a meal on our first night in Iquitos as it sits right on the square and provided a lovely view. unfortunately the food was disgusting and we barely ate any of it, yet one of our group had food poisoning as a result. to top it off, the service was rude...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel briefly between the time that we completed our Amazon River expedition and left for the airport. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The pool is small, but refreshing. The buffet lunch was average.

The staff was very accomadating. The breakfast was on the gross side. However, dinner in the restauarant on the 2nd level was awesome. Need to be careful as several friends got bug bites from the hotel bed and room. Room looked ok but there were roaches in the bathroom....gross. Bed was hard. Only one elevator so used the stairs quite... More

We stayed for one night on return from the Amazon. What a wonderful night. Superb service, everyone was very helpful and cheerful. Our rooms on the 5 th floor overlooking the square were fantastic. Sure there was great activity and noise going on outside, but isn't that what we travel to see events like this? The reception areas were stunning.... More
