We arrived from Cusco the day before our Aqua Expeditions Amazon Cruise because we didn't want some airport issue make us miss our cruise, and given the fine oiled machine that is Cusco airport (heavy sarcasm) that was probably a good idea. The better plan would have been to spend the night in Lima, which the Cusco to Iquitos flight stops in, and take the Lima to Iquitos flight that the rest of the cruise guests came in on.
This could well be the nicest hotel in Iquitos, but that is faint praise; you are basically staying at a hotel attached to a public pool and restaurant. The staff was helpful and pleasant, but the accommodations are far from first class. If you have to go to Iquitos, I'm sure there are a lot worse places to stay, but if you can avoid Iquitos all together and go directly to whatever Amazon adventure you have planned, you will be better off.
