I stayed here for three nights in August and have no major complaints except for the fact that only one staff member speaks English. The location is excellent, just a 2-min. walk to the bus station--Terminal Urbana--from where you can catch the bus to the falls, to the airport, and also to Argentina. However, be sure to ask for a room not facing the bus station.
The breakfast is quite good & the family, who runs the place, is warm and friendly (despite the language problem). Close to the hotel is Gaucho's which has a excellent, reasonably priced all-you-can-eat buffet.
The town basically caters to foreigners who are there to visit the falls. It's pretty laid-back & also very safe. Plenty of restaurants on the main drag.
You must visit the falls from both the Brazilian & Argentinian sides. This is a must! The up-close views from Argentina are stupendous. Cross over to Argentina early (take the bus no later than 7:00-7:30 AM). This is really important because reaching the park will involve changing buses & the park is large & requires time (i.e. if you're planning to return to Brazil in the evening which is what I did). I reached the park at noon & couldn't cover everything because I would have missed the last bus back to Brazil.
I got my passport stamped (exit & entry stamps) in Brazil & Argentina. The bus drivers from both sides will give you the option or you can ask them to stop. This way you can avoid hassles when you fly out of Brazil to your final destination.
Seeing the falls from the Brazilian side requires only a few hours. After you exit the park, visit the adjacent bird park. It's really nice!
