I stranded at this hotel for 3 weeks during the corona lockdown. The hotel staff did whatever in their power to make us feel safe and comfortable. Normally they only serve breakfast but because of the situation they made sure we could have 3 meals a day. It is not a luxury hotel like the Hilton but it is not a hostel either. The rooms are large with private bathrooms, have aircon and TV. If there is any problem with the rooms they fix it as soon as possible. There is a nice common area with a bar and outside there is a small swimmingpool. They also have 2 machines for exercise that are located in front of a big window so there is a view over the river. Belém Market, supermarket, bank and smaller shops are all within walking distance. If i ever go back to Iquitos this is the place i will be staying.

Room Tip: The rooms with a balcony are a bit more it expensive but it is worth for the view over the river.

We stopped in here for drinks one evening, very pleasant and some great old pictures and paintings decorate the place. We didn’t stay here. The hotel and bar overlook a small plaza and the river. Iquitos can be hectic so it was nice to find a quiet place.

Little challenging due to limited English of staff. Pool was disappointing as needs to be updated. We were travelling with 2 families as a group of 10(adult children). 2 of the rooms had great views and were huge. Clean. We were in a double room and it was small. Breakfast was basic but fine.

No elevator, all rooms require use of stairs. Gratis Breakfasts always 30-40 minutes later than promised, especially coffee. When there is music, it is more like loud noise. A hot water shower is a maybe thing. almost no wifi. Old TV-no HDMI port. No safe in room. Otherwise OK place to stay, good location.

The hotel is just in front of the Itaya river, 3 blocks away from mainsquare. Breakfast is included. Rooms are very big, maybe too much. The pool is ok. For room service you got to call to the deskfront guy, that is a bit weird. I recomend this hotel.
