La Casa Fitzcarraldo ist a place of peace and joy in Iquitos. Iquitos itself is loud and dirty. Entering the hotel is a pleasure. Around the nice pool it is super green. There are big trees, palm trees, blossoming bushes, birds singing, ... you feel like getting a glimpse how paradise could be. Even the noise from the street ist almost gone.
The food in the restaurant ist fresh and tasty, staff is super friendly, the rooms offer lots of space and a solid interrieur. The bathroom is very clean. The hotel breaths history of famous film Shootings.
I'd say if you were in Iquitos and did not visit Casa Fitzcarraldo you haven't been in Iquitos ;)
Oh, and of you have the chance to meet the owner Walter Saxer in the evening for a glas of wine, some fascinating stories and philosophical conversation, don't miss that chance!!!

This is a very personal resort - the grounds, its theatrical history, the choice of music, the treehouse all sigh "life project" not corporate investment. Thus its charm. After bouncing down the dusty Avenida la Marina in an autotaxi (tuk-tuk) you'll suddenly stop at the nondescript entrance to this hidden surprise. Inside, however, classical music wafts through the palms around the pool. The polite, able and friendly staff tend to this lush, cool if overgrown resort and its stream of intrepid travelers. Walter, the owner & charming greeter, welcomes jungle adventurers home from a day on the river. He has created a quiet, charming if overgrown respite from the chaos & filth of Iquitos -- a noisy mercantile hub in the middle of the Peruvian Amazon jungle. The Fitzcarraldo's charm is from last century -- Klaus Kinsky, Mick Jagger & Werner Herzog all resided there while filming "Fitzcarraldo" and "Aguirre, the Wrath of God. Have a beer with Walter (the entertaining executive producer of those films) at the bar and ask about the photos of him with film crews on the walls.

Room tip: Pescado a la plancha (broiled fish) was wonderful!

The hotel itself was nice and quite clean.

However, do not ask the hotel for tips on tours and do not use them to book tours. They will contact people who are not serious and who charge you double as much as what you can find in the city. We were cheated by a friend of the owner of the hotel and he did not do anything to help us.

This is a wonderful place. The owner is a very interesting Swiss gentleman who is a retired filmmaker. He was very friendly and accommodating to our large party of 7. He ordered up transportation when we needed it, had our laundry done after our 10 dat excursion into the Amazon, and gave us great advice on where to go and what to do in Iquitos. The rooms were very clean and the garden/swimming pool is an Oasis in this bustling city. I highly recommend it!
