Arrived at Foz do Iguazu at around midnight. It was around 10 degrees celsius, freezing cold. I took the cab to the hotel. When I get to my room, I realized that it was only a single size bed (I paid for a double bed room). Anyhow, I did not complain as I was alreadyh very tired and I needed to get up next day very early to sight see. The room was freezingly cold. I turned the air conditioning to 30 degrees celsius but it did not help much. The reason is the windows cannot be closed firmly to stop the cold air from coming in to the room. Also, I could not have a hot shower. The hot water was just mildly warm. Lying down on the bed with my head on the side of the window, I felt cold air kept blowing on my face and I just could not fall asleep. I basically had to pull the bed away from the window and slept in opposite direction (my head being away from the windows). I also needed to wear my coat to go to bed as the heating system was certainly far from efficient.

The rooms are great. Comfortable. The wifi didn't work, although you get connected to the network..
They do have computers next to the reception for guest use..
The pool is not big and it doesn't have warming. They make you pay the day you check inn that was not good.. The breakfast was very good they offer a lot of kinds of food.. The employees are very friendly.. I give it an overall of three stars.. Great if you are looking for good price.. It is located next to the bus station of the city, that was very convenient for me

Stayed here two nights. Had a room in the old part of the hotel, was very clean with large shower. The room was quite small and a view of the gap between the two parts of the hotel but you don't go to Iguaçu to look out the hotel window! Air conditioning and large flat screen TV. Towels folded in to animal shapes which was a sweet touch. Staff friendly and helpful and some English speaking. Tiny pool on the roof and couple of loungers, but don't go to Iguacu to spend time in hotel. One odd thing, they lost the key to the room with pool table etc for a day, I think maybe they just wanted to keep our kids out! Good breakfast with large selection of the usual stuff. Quiet with comfortable enough beds. Good location, near the bus station. Nothing special but more than adequate for a couple of nights.

Sadly, this hotel does not meet the description on the label. Having researched the place first before coming, I was very surprised at the list of facilities - English widely spoken, cocktail bar, friendly atmosphere etc. Unfortunately, none of these are true and there is no English spoken and more heartbreaking, no bar or dining facilities (the nearest one is a hostel up the road which is very good). The staff are generally unhelpful and walk off if you need help with your traveler Portuguese, and the room are very dated - ours was full of very large ants and no hot water for the three days we stayed. The television in the rooms cannot get a signal either although they do make amusing animals out of your clean towels when you come in after a long day. Not very impressive given the price and they really did not want to help when it came to giving me my Best Western reward points, so I guess I will just have to email them when I get back to the UK (again!).
On the positive side, the townsfolk are very helpful and the Bufallo Branco restaraunt up the road is absolutely superb!

The hotel is in a great location. 2 minutes from the bus station and local tourist info office. You can get direct buses to the National Park, a bus that will take you over Friendship Bridge crossing the border to Paraguay and a bus to the Argentinian border (where you will have to change to a bus to Caratas) to see the falls from the Argentinian side. There's also a great little restaurant next door to the hotel where you can get a buffet dinner for Rs22.

The hotel room itself was sterile. I had a room on the 2nd floor in the new tower, but there was an extremely loud noise from a generator so I asked to change, which the staff begrudgingly did.
The second room wasn't much better, the noise could still be heard even when the window was closed. The first room had a double bed, the second room had 2 twin beds. Both rooms were freezing cold (although they do provide a duvet and a blanket), you are given no toiletries and the water temperature in the shower was tepid. Wifi is available in every room and surprisingly its quite fast. Unfortunately, you have to log in every day, and every day I had a problem logging in and had to ask reception to check it for me.

The breakfast in the mornings was OK. I'm not generally a fussy person, but I would not recommend this hotel especially when on check out I was charged for a tourism tax (Rs1.50 per day) which is fine however they also charged Rs30. When questioned this charge I was told it was for some kind of tourist book in the hotel room, a book which I hadn't even seen or had been told about when checking in. They wouldn't take this charge off my bill. I stayed for 3 nights and couldn't wait to leave. Stay at this hotel if you cannot find another hotel.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room in the 2nd tower (which has been newly refurbished) but on a higher floor perh...
