We were left with a generally good impression- I think I would consider staying here again if we came back to Iquitos. The staff on the front desk were the best thing about this one- they were really helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to sort out a problem we had with a trip we had booked.... More

It was ideally located, about 5 minutes walk to the main plaza. Stay here if you are arriving late in the evening in Iquitoes and leaving first thing in the morning. The place itself is very old and has a musty smell. I spent a very uncomfortable night as the air-condition unit in my room was very old and made... More

Look... there are NO great hotels in Iquitos and very few GOOD hotels... for these you pay dearly. I aske my friend who lives in Iquitos for a quite, clean hotel next to the Plaza, as this is where the best city life is to be found. She recommended the Ambassordor with a caveat ... do not expect much. I... More

Being a well seasoned traveler, and accustomed to all sorts of accommodations, I'd say, unless you're a starving student on a tight budget, stay away from this place. Let me start by saying that it doesn't pretend to be something its not...its a "hostel". The staff was pleasant enough, but the rooms were nothing more than staying in a flop... More

This hotel is a decent choice for budget travelers. The rooms are pretty, are nicely painted, and are fairly clean. I stayed in room 6 on the first floor. All of the rooms have windows that face a ventilation shaft, not a street view, which is important in Iquitos because of constant motorcycle and moto-taxi noise from outside. Rooms on... More
