I go to Iquitos on Business fairly often, I've stayed at Victoria Regia, Nuevo Maranon and 'Old' Maranon and I prefer the latter. You don't get a fancy breakfast or the extra flourishes of the other 2 places, but for a clean room with AC and TV and hot shower for a really good price, I think this is a great deal esp. if you are only staying in town for a few days. As other authors point out, Iquitos is cheap and there are many places to eat around the Maranon so maybe you don't need the extras. The staff are great and the building is an old colonial era house with a cool wooden staircase in the lobby in a great location downtown. There are Wifi routers in the hallways, although I did not access it since I didnt have my laptop. There is a free airport shuttle with a counter in the baggage claim at the IQT airport. Right before Christmas I got off the flight from Lima and got on the bus with 10 other Peruvian businessmen and no Gringos although many chose to stay at the new one, it appears the Maranons are where the locals stay on business due to the prices and amenities.
