“Centrally Located Hotel”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The hotel is located in Foz do Iguaçu downtown, what makes it perfect for city tour, although there's nothing very interesting to explore. To go to the National Park for the falls - either brazilian side or argentinian one - a day tour can be arranged. There's a tourism agency on the main lobby where you can book all sort of day trips.
Room and bathroom are pretty good with all basic amenities.
Breakfast is huge with lots and lots of things to fill you up.
As its names gives the idea, the hotel tries to bring some Italian charm and the well-known Italian Night dinner (Noite Italiana) is its highlight. It takes place every Wed and Sat. Italian dishes, happy live music and an impressive selection of cheese probably make this event unique in Foz.
My only cons: Wifi is available for not-so-reasonable fee, the quite dark corridor and the noisy-but-acceptable A/C.
I would probably stay at this hotel again considering price and benefits.

This is a great gourmet hotel, they have an amazing breakfast and that's why it was chosen, they also have special dinner nights but it's only one day a week so it was not the same day as our stay. It's quiet, comfortable, has lots of plugs in the room. There was free transportation from the airport too. The swimming pool is too small and not great at all. It was good for the price.

Been there many times in order to work in the city. Day to day hotel. The food is ok. There's a swimming pool. Some rooms are very old. in general is a ok hotel. There is a van and some other things to take you to Argentina and Paraguay.

We´ve done this trip in december 2012. The hotel is very well recommended by brazilian bloggers. The price was about US$ 100,00 for 3 person plus a baby, with breakfast and included a crib. The localization is good, near to a shopping center and downtown. Better if you rent a car (park US$ 4 per day). Breakfast was excellent, a big variety of fruits, juices, breads, cakes, cheese ...Staff were very attentious and kind, do everything possible for the guest. Next time I´ll go to Foz, go back to Bella Italia, don´t want to stay in a 5 star hotel!

Our 3 night stay was ok. Nothing special. rooms are a little small. The beds are comfortable and good water pressure. The internet can only be described as bad. The hotel is close the the new shopping mall, but a bit of a walk to the main street.

The breakfast has plenty of options, and you will need to spend time here if you want to over indulge. The staff are ok, but the did not pick us up from the airport as promised, so it cost me 45 Real by taxi. No compensation offered.

It is a nice hotel but i am not sure if i would stay here again

We stayed at the Bella Italia Hotel from 12/25/11 - 12/28/11 We selected this hotel based on Expedia's description and booked it through them. Here is a summary of my communication with them after our stay: "* Comment: We are appalled with this hotel and that your description is highly inaccurate. Your description, which was the reason we booked this hotel includes: “via exterior corridors” (THERE ARE NO EXTERIOR CORRIDORS), “Pillowtop beds feature down comforters, down blankets, and premium bedding.” (THERE ARE NO PILLOWTOP BEDS, DOWN COMFORTERS, DOWN BLANKETS OR PREMIUM BEDDING, THE BEDDING IS OLD AND THE PILLOWS AND BLANKETS ARE VERY VERY OLD). Guests can make use of the in-room refrigerators and espresso makers (THERE ARE NO ESPRESSO MAKERS IN THE ROOM). Bathrooms include separate bathtubs and showers, makeup/shaving mirrors, phones (THE BATHROOMS DO NOT HAVE SEPARATE BATHTUBS, IN FACT THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY BATHTUBS AND THEY DO NOT HAVE MAKEUP/SHAVING MIRRORS AND THE BATHROOMS DO NOT HAVE PHONES). Renovation of all guestrooms was completed in August 2011. (THIS ROOM HAS NOT BEEN REMODELED IN YEARS, OTHER THAN A FAIRLY NEW CHEAP VINYL FLOOR EVERYTHING IS VERY VERY OLD). WE BOOKED THIS HOTEL BASED ON YOUR DESCRIPTION WHICH IS HIGHLY INACCURATE BORDERING ON FRADULENT MISREPRESENTATION, WE LOOKED AT THREE DIFFERENT ROOMS IN THIS HOTEL AND NONE OF THEM HAD ANY OF THE AMENITIES YOU LISTED ABOVE IN YOUR DESCRIPTION. WE SHOULD NOT BE CHARGED FOR THIS HOTEL THIS IS AN OUTRAGE." For your information, Expedia responded by saying they were sorry and that was it, they never did a damn thing and a year later they still have the same false, deceptive description. NOW ON THE BRIGHT SIDE: the staff are incredible and did everything they could be helpful, warm and friendly and the breakfast buffet is the most incredible, extensive, delicious breakfast buffet we have ever eaten.

Room Tip: Go there to eat their incredible breakfast buffet, but stay somewhere else.
