“Good value for the price”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

I booked this hotel as I managed to secure a really good rate of 99 Reals per night which based on my stay represented very good value for money. However, for my stay to visit the Iguasu falls it was a bit out of the way. I have thetefore divided my review into 2 parts, one on the hotel and the other around accessibility.
1. The hotel offers many good things including English speaking staff (not all though), a nice quiet pool, wifi (3 days access for 12 reals although I could not get a signal in the room, but excellent in the lobby), a decent breakfast included in the price with a good selection, a good restaurant downstairs, a couple of pool tables in the games room. The room was basic with standard cable (Brasilian / Portuguese channels) strong ac, and a mini fridge. The decor was a bit old but for the price you can't beat it. A couple of downsides were there was a bit of noise from the road and nearby bus terminal and the fact the hotel is not in downtown Foz.
2. As per above the hotel is opposite the international bus terminal (Rodavaria), and not the central bus terminal in downtown Foz where the buses leave to go to the falls - both Brasil and Argentinuan sides. You can catch a bus to downtown from the international bus terminal by jumping on a bus marked Centro / TTU. However these buses ran infrequently (on average hourly). Alternatively it was a taxi for 15 Reals. At the international bus terminal there are a couple of small shops and a cafe (but certainly not a "shopping centre" as described by a previous reviewer). However, there is a shopping mall if you turn right out of the hotel entrance and walk down the hill 100 M you then turn right as you hit the main road and then its about 2km /15 min walk. The mall has numerous shops including a supermarket and on the top floor numerous eateries mainly of the fast food variety and a couple of buffet style restaurants.
So in summary the hotel offered good value for money but not ideal for visiting the falls but if you factor in the cost of a cab it probably still works out cheaper than some of the other options in downtown, although I will add there really isn't much going on in downtown either!

At first sight, the tower block appearance can be a little worrying....but then you see the inside and then you meet the staff!
Then you see the light or luz!
Get it?
Reception was extremely helpful and there was free local tea and coffee. Breakfast was good, the rooms clean and right opposite is a decent shopping centre and bus station.
Don't let the bus station put you off. There is no noise and the ATMs and shops in the bus station are useful. The silly girl I was travelling with, even managed to find an eye liner pencil in the Pharmacy!
Thehotel runs their own tour service and even across the borders between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay....
