I'd give this hotel a solid B. Nothing amazing but cleanish, and well located. While there is a pool, it isn't very appealing and no one was using it. The breakfast was included in the price. Beds were comfortable. The bathrooms could use a serious scrubbing. Nothing is technically wrong with this hotel - it just has little personality. WiFi...

Stayed here for one night on the way to Tabatinga, Brazil. The room was large, clean, with a small fridge and a comfortable bed. Location was good for restaurants and close to a corner store should you need water or snacks. It was also very close to the office where the tickets are sold for the Fast Boat to Tabatinga....

May 14; May 19, 2011 We selected this hotel for the day before and after we went to Otorongo Expeditions (jungle lodge). because of its great location. Our room was fine, we had hot water, there was free internet and the breakfast was okay. For $45 US per night, it was good value.

Free pickup/return to airport. Never got up for their free breakfast-so no info. If you are looking for basic, clean lodging with central location - then this is your choice!! Staff was always friendly, helpful and looking for ways to make your stay great. Located 2 min walk from big plaza, 3 min walk from boulevard. CAUTION - near Casinos....

I stayed at this hotel in September 2010. The standard rate is 100 soles which at the time is only about US$37. It is very centrally located. It is only two blocks from the main plaza and the famous "Boulevard". It really is within walking distance to about everything you need. The best part about the hotel was the bed....

Hotel staff picked us up at the airport, fast service to the hotel and easy check-in. First night a triple room on the fourth floor, no elevator. Next three nights in a double on first floor. (Change because a fourth friend met up.) The triple were ok, last floor, high up and away from the traffic, more silent than the...

Given that Iquitos is pretty much the back of beyond (it is only reachable by air or boat, there is no road connection and saw its days of glory end over a century ago) one has to adjust one's expectations of hotels accordingly. The grading I have given takes this in to account. We stayed at the Marañon as part...

We stayed here for around 8 nights whilst working with some missionaries in Iquitos. The location was convenient, very close to the water where there were little shops and places to get a drink. The plaza is just around the corner, which is lovely. The air conditioning was very welcomed. The rooms were small and tidy, with a window over...

We stayed at the Hotel Marañón for two, one-night stays before and after our Amazon River trip. Unfortunately, neither stay was without problems. Our tour operator had arranged with the hotel to provide our transportation from the airport to the hotel upon our arrival. They failed to get us. We needlessly spent an hour waiting at the airport and then...
