We stayed at the blue room: spacious, with private bathroom, fan and views to the garden with swimming-pool. The outdoor area of the property definitely stands out and even those guests that do not sleep in, can enjoy the pool during the day for a reasonable fee. There are hammock areas and a very tall tree house, all surrounded by luscious Amazonic vegetation.
There is also a restaurant and bar by the pool, serving a variety of well-cooked and presented regional, national and international dishes. I'd recommend the charcoal grilled chicken or fish and the camu-camu juice (so refreshing!). Breakfast is served indoors in the dinning-room and consists of fruits, fresh fruit juice, eggs cooked to your liking, freshly brewed coffee, breads, pastries, spreads, cheese and cold cuts.
Although not in the very centre of Iquitos, Casa Fitzcarraldo is less than 10 minutes drive away, and moto-taxis are as available as they could be, during the day and night. We only used taxi from and to the airport, booked with the staff, at a reasonable fee.
