We recently stayed at this Best Western for a 2 night stay to see the falls.
The reception staff at this hotel are just beyond rude and very unhelpful - When you go to ask for help they just stare at you like you are a lunatic, you ask your question and they then turn to there colleagues and start talking and just leave you there standing - This happened on more than one occasion and was just unacceptable, the worst member of staff for this was Leonardo, avoid him at all costs! The only helpful person on reception was Elton so always look out for him if you want somebody friendly and helpful and doesn't make you feel like an idiot!
The travel desk in the hotel that arranges trips to the falls are also just as unhelpful and quite frankly a rip off - They gave us some much duff information - Like that it takes an hour and a half to get to the Argentinian side of the falls and an hour and a half to get over the border - This was nonsense, the whole process to get to the Argentinian falls took less than an hour. They simply want to take your money for over priced trips - Don't go to them - We actually booked our trip with the Katharina Hostel a few doors down - So helpful and reasonable priced.
We wanted to do both the falls in one day (the hotel also told us this was impossible, rubbish!) but we did do it all - I admit it wasn't a leisurely trip round the parks but we knew that would be the case and we had limited time but you can do and its worth going to both!
The rooms at this hotel are very small and the breakfast is really not very pleasant at all. Overall not a good stay here at all and would suggest you look elsewhere as i'm sure there are nicer and more helpful places to stay ... although be warned this place is just very very strange but worht it for the magnificent falls!
