“Nice looking, good location, OK staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

The hotel overall is nice. I stayed in a renovated room and it was quite spacious and nice. The breakfast is nice and abundant. The 2 things to criticize are
1) we stayed first in a room with a door communicating to other room, the gap between the door and the floor was at least an inch and we therefore heard absolutely everything that was going on in the other room, making sleep a bit complicated, we changed the last night and had no problem
2) Staff: was VERY variable, half of it didnt care at all, and have to agree with other reviews where they mention "they seem to be doing you a favor" when they talk to you. Others (the minority) were very nice. I think if they work a bit on the staff, it would improve dramatically the level of the hotel.

Located Downtown by the bus stop.
Nice room, great breakfast, great dinner buffet.
Great budget hotel.
Specially if you want to dine in town, not much more you can do in Iguazu.
Ask for a roon in their new section

The Saint George Hotel is conveniently located across the road from the bus station and in the centre of the town.
The hotel has a decent foyer and pool area but some of the rooms have not been updated and look a bit tired. Unfortunately we were in an old room but it was spacious with a huge bathroom.
Breakfast was adequate but we did not use the restaurant in the evening. There are good restaurants across the road and we had excellent steaks in one.
Overall the Saint George is in a good location to visit the falls for a few days and the staff are pleasant.

Read the reviews and were unsure what we would find. Were pleasantly surprised. Our room was huge, yes a little worn but hey. BEST water pressure and hot water we
encountered in 5 weeks of traveling in South America. Extremely helpful front desk, they even printed our boarding passes for us, and a nice breakfast. We could walk to good restaurants and shops and even the Three Fronteras.
Good choice for Puerto Iguazu.

Plus: location very convenient just opposite the bus terminal station. Also known to airport's shuttle bus which was convenient (might apply to all major hotels in the area, might not, not sure).
Staff related to baggages veeery helpful and polite indeed, but reception staff not very so.
I have to admit that because of our first room being very smelly we were swamped to a mini-suite which of course was appreciated a lot from us as a gesture and without any further cost. Unfortunately the rest of our stay left us with mixed feelings mainly due to...:
the part of the hotel we stayed is relatively old, felt like a hotel from another decade. Stains on the carpets, bit smelly rooms, windows that didnt close properly so there was noise from the main street outside during night, mould stains on the bathroom ceiling and hotbath looked really tired, i wouldnt think of using it.

as far as we understood there is also a newer (?) part in the hotel and the rooms looked much nicer and modern at quick look, so perhaps we were just not lucky with our room.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the 'new' part of the hotel.

For its location right across the omnibusterminal, this hotel is a very good choice. Many hotels is outside the city where not much happens. So unless you like busses and overpriced taxis this hotel is a good choice. People come here to see the Falls, nothing else and this place has taken advantage of this to the max.

The Saint George is an old hotel, and it IS tired to say the least.. As someoneelse wrote, they probably have so many one or two nighters which makes the service like a assembly hall. Staff does not really have a high service level, they dont greet you and they do not smile. Sad. But they will help you if you ask. I was given a wrong room, and it felt like I was asking for an upgrade when asked it to be changed. Breakfast is served in the basement from 630am which is a big plus as many tours starts early. I found the breakfast quite good, coffee horrible. If someone wonders why there is a lack of fresh fruit etc just have a look around and see the lunchbag preparation taking place at the tables...That might be the answer...they also served dinner from 730pm- did not try it so cannot comment. If you dont need high gourmet experiance go to the bus terminal they have plenty of good offers at hand at reasonable prices.
Hotels halls are a bit outdated but the pool area seemed quite nice and very popular..

Rooms i think is a lottery- you might be lucky, or maybe you wont.. Carpeted, comfy beds, sat tv, minibar, safe and hurray a place for your suitcase.. I kept my aircon at full speed at lowest temp but still the room was boiling. The wifi in my room 260 went from very bad to not working. for two days I came home from fullday tours and my room was not cleaned, so I have no idea if it is any good. Its slow thats for sure!

The city itself is nothing special, but then again you are not there for the city. And please do NOt make a mistake of buying the tours on offer to the nationalpark...You can easily do this on your own- bus from the busstation takes 25 mins at a cost of ARS35, stops right outside the park and once you are inside, you wont have any problems doing your own tour, staffs speaks english and are very helpful. Most guides dont really guide you as it is so easy to do it yourself. but again its about milking the tourist. A taxi will set you back ARS150, which is overpricing at its max. And do bring all drinks, snacks and meals as prices inside the park are redicoulous. Again taking advantage of you have no other choices. And buy your tshirts in the airport on your way home, many of them are half the price of what you pay inside the park.

The Saint George prides itself with 4 stars, which is one star too much, and as such not a good option. But lower your expectations and enjoy the good location and go for the best rate, hope for a good room and maybe some cleaning, and you will be fine.

Room Tip: as i wrote its a lottery, you might get a good room and even have cleaningservice too

Given that you are in Iguasu to see the waterfalls, this is a good base. Our room was excellent with a lovely shower. However, the breakfast was haphazard with little choice. The pool is good but very uncomfortable loungers.
