I think the hotel is good three stars or four stars. It has five star prices, though. Especially the laundry service is expensive. It works very fast, though. The hotel has two computers with internet connection. I only give it four stars max, because the rooms weren't cleaned well. The maintenance cleaning has been done, but there was dirt in places that were seldom cleaned. The pool is nice. There is a big derelict building right next to the hotel. People actually live in it. That just reminds of the huge income disparity in the country.
The restaurant of the hotel serves first class food, also jungle rat and lizard sometimes. I was kind of divided with all that, on one hand, it is a good option to choose local food, on the other hand, what if they offer meat from some near-extinct species. On the other hand, I had a suspicion that in Peru, "pollo" or "gallina" might not always have been chicken.
The hotel is right next to a plaza and at least in the late afternoon a gringo cannot just sit there in peace undisturbed by street vendors. If you want to buy something from street vendors, this is your place to stay in Iquitos.
The hotel has air conditioning, so the rooms are one of the few places in Iquitos that are cool and dry.
