Not clean; expensive; and the place is out of the way and we grew tired of flagging the cycle taxis every time we wanted to run into town. Left a book and was told they would send it - never did. The New York guy was annoying and all in all, not a good experience at all. Stay closer to... More

Stayed in Mick Jagger's room, which was quite nice except for the bathroom, that hasn't been updated in more than 30 years and was not too clean. The outside part (pool and treehouse) are nice and invite visitors to kick back and relax. Overall I did find that we payed too much - around 250 soles when 100-150 soles would... More

We stayed at the Fitzcarraldo for 1 night with another family in December 2012. We booked the Fitzcarraldo because the pool and treehouse looked great, and there didn't seem to be many great options in Iquitos. What a bad decision. This place is absolutely nasty! The bathroom ceiling was covered in mildew, the steps to the bathroom were treacherous, it... More

Walter owns and runs the place. This is not for everyone. It is simple, rustic, but also the place to relax for an afternoon of reading a book, taking a swim (the pool is incredible), sipping cocktails, smelling the flowers. If you are going on an Amazon trip or to one of the lodges, this place is a perfect place... More

I recently stayed at the Casa Fitzcarraldo and if it were not for the staff, I would have rated this hotel as only average. The gardens are beautiful and our rooms were very charming and clean, but there is awful construction going around that is noisy and disarming when first arriving. There is also a lumberyard across the street which... More

This was a construction zone (July 2013). I had to close all curtains for any privacy from guests and workers passing by my windows in my ground floor room . Mahogany floors ? Mine were tiles with the so-called bathroom down a flight of stairs and no hot water to the hand-basin . The "dining room " was outside and... More

Were it not for the exotic connection with Werner Herzog, Mick Jagger and the 1982 film, this review would be less positive. The food was great and the staff very good, but the rooms are not well maintained - the floor was filthy and the bed sheets appeared not to have been changed between guests!! In addition, our pre-paid stay... More

I stayed at the Casa Fitzcarraldo for one night in May 2013. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool and garden were very nice. They have a great treehouse in the garden, and when climbing in the treehouse I had a very close encounter with a sloth – fantastic! We stayed in the suite in the lower floor.... More

Nice & quiet, with history & Fitz Carraldo Movie shown by the owner & producer Walter Saxer. Unfortunatelly it looks like the casa has seen better days already - but still nice place, neat rooms and friendly staff.

La Casa Fitzcarraldo is probably the best place to stay in Iquitos. It is beautiful, filled with luscious plants and a few animals, an outdoor pool, lots of outdoor common areas, including a treehouse with wifi, and hammocks. It is beautifully decorated, the food is delicious (best "breakfast included" I've had in Peru, plus great menu items and a great... More
