We stayed only one night to visit Iguazu Falls from the Argentina side, after seeing the falls from the Brazil side. I choose this hotel from TA reviews and was quite happy with the hotel. We arrived very early (10:00am) hoping to be able to check in, before heading to the falls. The lady at the front desk said no problem and checked us in. She even said she was giving us an upgrade (I just smiled to myself because I read on other TA reviews that other travellers got upgraded as well). The hotel is new and the room was in good shape. My only complaints are the lack of lighting in the shower area and the fact the shower glass is too short so water sprays all over the floor. The front desk called a cab to take us to Iguazu Falls (140 pesos) and the entrance to the park was 170 pesos each. After leaving the falls, we discovered an alternative to a taxi back to the hotel. Immediately to your right as your leave the falls, there is a stand for the Rio Uruguay bus. Go inside and purchase your ticket (one way) for 35 pesos and the bus driver will drop you off along the way back to Puerto Iguazu. I told the driver the hotel and he dropped me off across the street from the hotel. I then went into the new complex, by the bus stop, to buy some water, beer and snacks. The new complex had lots of new upscale shops and restaurants and is a good alternative to eating in the hotel. The complementary buffet served by the hotel is average and I noticed that it was seriously in need of refilling when I ate at 8:30. I guess lots of hotel guests were up early to eat and head out to the falls but the condition and selection was not good at 8:30 in the morning. On the positive side, I got an extension from the normal 10 am checkout to 11:30am, as my flight was at 1:30. The hotel arranged my taxi to the airport (140 pesos) as well.
