Como se dice "hotel fail?"
We had high expectations coming to this hotel, based on some friends' positive experience and the hotel's beautiful website. Most expectations were destroyed in short order.
The hotel is in a rougher part of town, on top of a casino. "Ladies of the night" frequented our hotel with alarming regularity, and not just at night. The included breakfast was mostly last night's leftovers. Pool was murky, though it did finally get cleaned. Service was spotty; upon arrival they told us we didn't have a reservation. Only when we pulled out our printed reservation did they acquiesce and find us a room. To their credit, the room was clean and air conditioned. Not to their credit, the power and A/C went out one night during our stay.
The hotel website told us they could arrange several tours for us. When we arrived, their selection suddenly shrunk to two. Then it turns out I spent S/50 instead of $50 for the exact same tour they offered when I walked down to the Plaza de Armas.
Hotel van (with non-working AC) took us out to the zoo one day and we arranged for a pickup 2 hours later. When our ride didn't show up, I called the hotel and they said he wasn't coming, cuz he's ocupado. No apology, nothing. He's just not coming. And thus, my recommendation to you...if you're coming to Iquitos, don't be coming to this hotel.
