I'm the poster of some other reviews re: Iquitos, and wanted to post on the El Dorado as well. When I worked in Iquitos with a medical group, many of our volunteers stayed at the El Dorado.
The hotel is very small - I'm shocked to see that there are actually 60 rooms, as the lobby and restaurant are tiny. The prices are very reasonable, and the renovated/deluxe rooms are really quite nice (1-star on the old rooms, 3-star on the new rooms).
For clarification, this is the little sister of the big El Dorado Plaza. One of the benefits of staying here is that you can use the facilities at the big hotel (pool, etc.) - just ask nicely and tip the staff. However, best thing about this hotel - AMAZING, AMAZING service. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly, and really provide a family atmosphere. Many volunteers that stayed there remarked on how they were made to feel at home in this sense, even by staff who spoke no English.
All in all, a GREAT budget hotel.
