We needed a brief stop in Iquitos and chose Dorado for its price and 3 stars. The positives are the room was neat, clean and staff friendly. The negatives are we felt like we were in a dark box and an odour in the room, so much so that we reluctantly had to leave the room door ajar for fresh air and extra light. The “window” was a frosted, dirty, fixed pane of glass which allowed no light and aesthetically better to leave it covered. We enquired as to whether there was a room with an opening window but no luck. Also no safe for passports etc. Honestly we went to the Hilton one block away and spent the day there for lunch, coffee and drinks and looked around Iquitos so we got what we paid for and only brief.
We stayed in this hotel for one night after 4 days excursion in the Jungle. So, we wanted just a bed and calm time to relax. However, to our surprise, around 10 pm, we started to hear very loud music coming from a club. We kept calm, after two house the music was louder and louder, We went for reception to complains, they told us that there is night club next to the hotel and they can do nothing. The music stopped at 04:00 am, so we slept finally for two hours and thankfully we left. Avoid this hotel if you are in Iquitos.
