5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

Atchaaa!
Great place and very big rooms with a/c!
Very nice owner who gives you all the information you need and never stops smiling!
Good location to visit the place, find all the jungle operators and enjoy the restaurants!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

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 but could do with a blanket instead of just a sheet. Cable TV was a bonus. The aircon was so appreciated in steamy Iquitos! The unit got quite noisy one evening and although it couldn't be fixed, reception did their best to tinker with it. The pressure from the shower head in this room is little more than a dribble which takes about 10 minutes to get hot. Hopefully the owner managed to fix this. He let us use a spare shower elsewhere which worked well. Breakfast is simple and sufficient. The hotel is located a couple of blocks from the main square and is a nice escape from the noisy, hot and dirty streets of Iquitos. I would consider staying at Hotel Dubai again if I have the misfortune of returning to this town.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to reception have better wifi, or go to Karma cafe for better signal.

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 not much to do in Iquitos to stay longer.

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 get to know him, he is a good guy and he was helpful to us with recommendations for restaurants, transportation, etc.

For its inexpensive rate, this is a fine, well located hotel.

I stayed at Hotel Dubai for 3 days in January. Room was clean, AC worked great, location was great. The WIFI was a hit and miss, I was on the second floor. The hotel staff was good. The manager is very friendly and helped me out by giving me a map of the area and showing me the things to do in Iquitos and in detail for better prices (much appreciated). Breakfast was good, they cooked for me and I was treated well :D

住在Dubai 宾馆很方便。舒服的床、干净的房间、热情的老板。宾馆离中心很近。它房间都有空间、热水、卫生间。我和我男朋友住在Dubai宾馆非常满意。

Hotel Dubai is a very nice place to stay. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and the owners are great. The hotel is close to the city center. All of the rooms have air conditioning, hot water and private bathroom. My boyfriend and I have been very satisfied staying at Hotel Dubai.
