We spent two nights here earlier this month. Hotel Lilian was clean, comfortable, and had wonderful staff.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the main road, which is where the bus station and lots of reasonably priced restaurants (exit the hotel, take a left, then another left) are located. This was convenient for catching the bus to the Argentine side of the Iguazu Falls (Cataratas Bus - 5 pesos each way, about a 45 minute ride, runs every 20 minutes) or buses into Brazil and Praguay.

Our room was basic and cheap (120 pesos/night), but just what we needed since our days were spent out visiting the Falls. Breakfast (pastry, orange juice, tea) was average for Argentina.

I worked in the area for 3 days & also visited the falls. The staff were very helpful with my travel planning - I drove to a variety of places in Misioness and around town & to the falls. They were prompt to help with anything I needed at the hotel and generally very friendly.

The rate I 'discussed' with them by email before I came was much higher than other reviews of the place I had seen in Frommers, etc, and indeed when I arrived their [much lower] rates were displayed at the reception desk [same as at many of the other similar hostels in Iguazu]. I never identified myself as having discussed rates, rather just walked in and paid for some nights & they never asked. A single room was about $35 USD.

Breakfast was very light, and they graciously kept some things in the fridge for me. Internet in the lobby was generally OK, occasionally unavailable becasue used by other guests or during a storm. Bathroom and room were OK, AC was OK but October was pleasant anyway, so ? The lack of a shower curtain seemed un-necessarily rustic. Parking on the street OK. TV OK. Beds hard but OK.

Only complaint: The tile in the public courtyard is Extremely slippery.

Hotel Lillian

I stayed there with my wife in April 2008 and found everything the same as the reviewer from 2006. The only negative was the breakfast was a little light although it was sufficient(just being fussy).

The room was clean and spacious and the bathroom was also clean but they really needed a shower curtain as the water splashes all over the floor and you can slip if you are not careful

They were always helpful and the room was clean.

The neighbourhood was walking distance to the bus station where we travelled to Iquazu falls. They contacted the air port transport for us. We walked everywhere and found it safe at night

We booked by email from Buenos Aires and they were prompt. The price was very reasonable.

We booked 2 rooms directly with the hotel by emailing them at:

hotellilian@yahoo.com.ar

Note: there is no double 'L" in the email address.

We also called them (using a Spanish-speaking friend of ours) to request a written comfirmation of our reservation since they replied to our email with simply rates (70 pesos/ $23 per night for a single with a private bath).

They never requestred a credit card guarantee and we paid in cash (U.S dollars which they happily accepted).

I can't stress enough that the neighborhood in and around the hotel (and the hotel itself) isn't really charming. This area has a rural feel to it. The street is made of smashed rock (not cobblestone), there is intermittent paved sidewalks, the terrain is sloped with lots of little hills and valleys and the properties are not homogenous (there are homes, next to hotels, next to commercial properties) but think more "undeveloped countryside" rather than 'charming village".

As you walk around the corner to the right of the hotel, things become more commercial with lots of hotels/hostels, some local stores (not quaint but useful) and, most importantly, the outdoor bus station which affords transport to Iguazu Falls (about 30-40 minutes away).

Back to the hotel...
As you walk into the lobby through doors that are always open, you'll see the courtyard ahead with the rooms through opposing doors that are also kept open. The lobby has an "outside feel" and there are overhead fans that keep it coolish (not really). Breakfast of croisants, pasties, and cafe con leche (coffee with hot milk) or tea is included in the price of the room. Orange juice is available at an additonal charge.

The proprietress is at the front desk during the day and speaks adequate English; the others have varying degrees of comprehension. I spoke some basic Spanish and smiled and pointed a lot and was able to communicate with everyone.

Before I forget, I want to praise them on an immaculate hotel and on GREAT SERVICE. We changed our dates twice and they were very nice about it. In addition, there was a minor plumbing problem and it was addressed within the hour (at 8:30 at night).

I found the room adequate with a queen plus twin bed, huge closets and air conditioning that worked well and wasn't noisy if you set it on "low" as I did before retiring -- only to wake up to an icy-cold room. My co-traveller left her A/C on "high" and said it was no problem sleeping with the noise or the temperature.

As a previous poster remarked, the room had great closets and no hangers. I asked for some and was given them within a couple of minutes.

They had free internet service in the lobby.

Regarding visiting Iguazu Falls, start your visit in the early morning since it gets hot very quicky. The ride to the Park is about 30-40 minutes and then there is quite a bit of walking in the Park (30 minutes or so) before you reach any portion of the Falls so that's 2 hours per day for just "commuting". Please understand that a trip to see the Falls is quite arduous. Many of the trails require climbing up and down outdoor stairways that can be sloped and.or slippery. It is truly a hiking trip. Bring water with you!

We spent three nights at the Hotel Lilian at the end of March 2006. We selected it on the basis of the only review on this website which described it as "adorable". We feel this is something of an exaggeration and so decided to add our own review.

Our room was certainly clean on arrival and was generously proportioned, as was the bathroom. We would describe the accommodation as basic, adequate and affordable. Our room was not cleaned during our stay; the water flow from the sink taps was no more than a trickle; the wardrobe had no hangers in it, rendering it useless; the brown floral curtains gave the room a gloomy feel (rather than the bright and cheerful room we had been led to expect from reviews in our guidebooks); the air conditioning unit was very noisy so we did not use it (not a problem in March but could be a considerable inconvenience in the height of summer); and breakfast was decidely uninspiring (one croissant per person plus a generous helping of mediocre bread and a glass of what tasted like squash - a real disappointment in a country with such wonderful fresh squeezed orange juice).

Having said all of that, it was only 17 pounds per room per night and so is definitely a good budget option, provided you have realistic expectations.

During our time in Puerto Igauzu we checked out some of the other hotels. If money is no object, the Hotel Tropical das Cataratas on the Brazilian side looks wonderful - a real colonial gem with lots of character, a lovely pool, beautiful grounds,a great location,and excellent pool bar service and food.

On the Argentine side, Hotel Cataratas looks like a reasonable option, if a little unappealing architecturally and somewhat lacking in character.

The Sheraton, although very well located, is a real eyesore and there is currently construction work underway which has put the main pool out of action, leaving just a small plunge pool.

A good compromise between the Hotel Lilian and the top end hotels might be the Esturion which was reasonably priced and had nice grounds and a pool.

We obviously can´t comment on the rooms at any hotel other than the Lilian.

Location should not be a determining factor since taxis and buses are so cheap.
