El Dorado Express is very simple hotel. The room I occupied is silent and clean.However, the shower was not good. The wi-fi is very good. I am not sure if you should pay for it, because it was not paid by me.

Pro: This is one of the few places that have air conditioning. Con: The staff were VERY sketchy. They said we had to leave the key with the front desk so they could clean our room. Ok, I get that - however, when my husband was working, I would hangout in the room during the day and a few times...

It's unfortunate because I wanted to give this hotel a decent rating, however right after we checked out I noticed $100 USD was missing from my wallet (which I always kept hidden in a drawer in our room). Our friends in the room next door also came back on the last day and saw someone had obviously gone through their...

I arrived really tired, the guy at the reception didnt have my reservation, so lets go on internet and show it. The first room was a big room, with hair on the pillow, dirty sheet, paper throwed around the bath room. The guy was really sorry, so lets check another, just few hair not so much, not really clean and...

Ok so the wifi is SLOW but that is Iquitos for you, the wifi sucks pretty much all over town. We asked to change rooms as there was no wifi signal in the back rooms, reception kindly accommodated us. The new room at the front of the hotel (205) was surprisingly quiet despite facing the street. The bed was comfortable...

Iquitos is not a very nice town,so it's difficult to find a really nice place there. Hotel Dubai is centrally located,freshly rennovated and serves good breakfast. However,our room was full of ants and when we asked to change the room, the recepcionist rejected. For one night stay before leaving for the Amazon it is an ok option, and there is...

We stayed there in April of 2012. Iquitos is a rough city but we felt it was a safe place there. The complementary breakfast was simple but did the trick. The room was clean and had good air conditioning, which is a 'must' in Iquitos. The owner / manager, John, comes on a little strong at first but as you...
