But then again you're paying for the location, not the hotel. We had a problem with our reservation as in they couldn't find it! Whoever's fault it was, either the hotel itself or the booking agent we used, we shouldn't have been made to sit in Reception for an hour whilst they tried to work it out - that was... More

The hotel is quite big, large room and coridors. You can see that it was a nice hotel. But- today the maintanance is bad, carpets are ripped and dirty. We got a room with bad smell, but as we asked, it was replaced. The SPA is very good open hours 09:00-21:00 and so is the swwiming pool. It's not close... More

Well what can I say. In 1973 a 5 star hotel opens, and in 1973 this hotel was the talk of the town, in2014 it is still the talk of the town, but for many other reasons... It has not changed since. This includes the 1973 processed food menu!!!! The 1973 service, the 1973 furniture, towels, bedding.... It truly is... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast more than adequate plus the snack bar menu was very good. Hotel is getting a little tired in places, a bit like the whole of Argentina. Even so we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you.

We stayed here for three nights with friends during our trip to Iguazu falls, and booked the hotel because it was advertised as being 1km to the falls and as a 5 star hotel. When we arrived at the hotel after a 17 hour bus journey from Buenos Aires, we checked in at reception but were just thrown a form... More

We stayed in Hotel Cataratas for 3 nights. Each morning, the breakfast was identical. Not one item was changed or added. Very boring. Also, the hotel must have received its stars a long time ago and one can certainly see that it was built on a grand scale. The rooms are huge but the curtaining and bedspreads are very old,... More

We loved this hotel, we stayed in the sister property in Rio (copacabana palace and thought this was much nicer. They upgraded up to the biggest suite upon arrival and it was palatial and lovely with amazing views of the falls. The food was not good but other than that the hotel is great.

A convenient place to stay for a visit to the Iguassu falls but under no circumstances can it be considered a five starred hotel. I would have a hard time giving it 3 stars. The rooms are very out dated and need some styling up. Nothing against old and vintage if it is the style perceived by the management.....not the... More

A good place to stay for a visit to Iguassu Falls. This may conflict with some of the other reviews but I guess "cleanliness" is a subjective thing. The hotel does show some signs of its age, but overall the maintenance is excellent so it is easy to overlook bits of tattered carpet in the public areas and a few... More
