Reviewed September 11, 2007

You go to Iguacu for the falls which are a truely to "be had experience" ! Unless you wish to splash out $300/night for the hotel inside the Iguacu falls park then Foz de Iguacu town is your only option . The town has nothing to offer. The hotel was OK for purpose and price but no more. 2 star + standard , good sized rooms, poor sound insulation. Fine for a couple of nights.
Excellent portugese restaurant 200m from the hotel towards the main road , avoid the bahian restaurant 200m the other way

Stayed August 2007

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while visiting the nearby falls. The falls are spectacular but together with the town only warrented the 2 nights.
The hotel was fine, clean, very reasonably priced and a good breakfast (nothing really to complain about) Foz itself however is another story, on our 3 wk trip it was the only place that we would definately not return to and even felt unsafe there. The town had a ghost like feeling about it and we were glad to leave.
Would recommend the hotel for a short stay in Foz but definately dont waste any precious time around this area there are far nicer towns in Argentina/Brazil to stay.

Our stay at the Rafain Centro was ideal for our trip to the Falls. It was well priced and had great tours leaving from the hotel daily. We had a great driver call Valdimiro (who works for the hotel)who spoke good english and took us to the Argentina side for BR150 for two people. We felt this was very reasonable as he helped with crossing the border and the tour was from 9am to 4pm. He was also very charming and was constantly giving us interesting facts of the area.

The hotel is clean and has great facilities. The only down side would be the restaurant food is rather limited. But breakfast is varied and enjoyable.

Generally a well priced hotel which I would recommend to the budget minded.

  • Liked — great facilities - gym, internet and pool
  • Disliked — restuarant food
  • Tips/Secrets — Remember to include cost of park entry for all tours

Paid US$60/night. Got the best deal on Expedia.com. Tried contacting the hotel directly, they quoted us US$70/night.

Stayed two nights. Room was unremarkable, but totally antiquate. Clean. There was a small lanai that overlooked the unremarkable, but totally antiquate pool area.

Staff treated us well. Breakfast buffet was included and it was quite bountiful. They have a small business services area upstairs where you can get online for small fee.

It was fun to be in the middle of town. Lots of restaurants to walk to.

Take the bus from the airport, get off at the McDonalds. It’s only a couple of blocks from there. Any wheeled suitcase worth its salt can make it fine.

The staff can arrange a free shuttle to go to the casino in Paraguay. We went on a lark. We enjoyed the fact that the border crossing consisted of our driver saying hello and shaking the border guard’s hand. No ID needed. We thought, “Hey, we just got into Paraguay on a handshake!”

Only being about 250 yards from the main road to the waterfalls the hotel is well placed enabling you to catch a local bus (every 20/30 mins) to the Iguassu National Park.

Whilst our room was a little dated (a few deep browns) it was perfectly fine for our short stay in the area. The room was clean, fresh and had adequate storage space.

The hotel buffet breakfast was excellent offering a wide range of fresh fruits, cakes, breads and cooked foods setting you up for the day. The restaurant looked OK, although only offered a buffet in the evening but as the hotel is a short walk from a couple of "beer gardens" that serve huge portions of food at good prices and more importantly ice cold beer we did not have a need touse the hotel facilities for dinner.

Overall for the cost (we paid about £35 per night) the Rafain offered great value and we felt perfectly safe walking around the area in the evenings.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights. It had clean, large comfortable rooms. The facilities are all well kept and the staff is friendly. The food is resonably priced and good brazillian fare. If you do not choose to eat at the hotel there are a variety of resturants within a short walk. No problems that I found. The rates are good too. I stayed the following two nights at the Tropical it was not worth it!
