This hotel has a great location within walking distance to the Itaya River and the riverfront boardwalk, and surrounded by tasty restaurants and cultural points of interest. Not 10 minutes from here, the Belén market is one of the most authentic and interesting destinations in all of Iquitos.
This open-air complex stretches over several blocks and is open every single day of the year. Visitors will find everything from exotic fruits juices, coca leaves, and cooked vampire fish to handcrafted goods and natural medicines.
The Dawn on the Amazon Café is arguably one of the best restaurants in the area, and is a 5-minute walk up from the hotel. La Noche—with its tasty local cuisine and gourmet espresso—is another favorite dining venue situated along the boardwalk.
Fascinating artifacts such as life-size casts made of fiberglass of various members of the different Amazonian tribes can be viewed at the nearby Ethnographic Museum. Dozens of agencies offer tours into the jungle, out to the zoo and nature reserves, and up and down the river. Cars with drivers and boats can be hired to provide transportation to other areas and attractions in the region.

A continental buffet of typical breakfast fare is served in the dining area each morning. Delicious Peruvian dishes are available for lunch and dinner from the hotel's restaurant. There is also a poolside bar where classic and regional cocktails, glasses of wine, and fresh juices can be purchased.
