GOOD: It is quite close to the town (1.5km - 20 min walk) but on the other side of the town from the falls. Was not too expensive for 3 nights, especially if you are paying cash in Argentinian pesos. Room was fine, big bed, normal size bathroom, clean. Little terrace with sliding door facing jungle setting (however no furniture to sit outside, you had to pull a chair from the room). Pool area is fine, pool is clean. There is a bar by pool and ping pong, pool table etc. Restaurant serves decent food but a little overpriced. GREAT breakfast. Main lobby and restaurant are attractive. Two clay tennis courts are great. 2 min walk from Amerian hotel which has AMAZING restaurant. Also a 2 min walk from the "Hito" - a monument showing where Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina meet. Excellent for runners as you are right next to the Costañera which has a long trail overlooking the river that goes all the way into town.
BAD: You are possibly the furthest you can be from the Falls as you are on the other side of the town, so you have to drive through the town and out towards the falls to get there (for both Argentinian and Brazilian sides. The town has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING special about it and is worth avoiding all together (not even good restaurants or bars) which we thought would be the only plus of being so close to the town. Taxi to bus is 25 pesos and 250 pesos to the Falls, and 300 to Brazlian side. Would be half the price if yo were on the other side of town. If you are just looking to go to the falls and have a peaceful time, choose a hotel closer which has a good restaurant and you can eat there every night and not travel anywhere other than the Falls. The room was a little tired and could use some redecorating. The front desk staff are fine, but could be much nicer. ALSO, the infinity pool picture shown with the canopy beds is not in the hotel (it is part of the lodges I think) Hotel pool is much more basic. Tennis balls provided by hotel were all dead and barely usable. You hear random loud and very powerful vibrations that last for 30 seconds every night until 4am with music which is being played by the kids who park their cars with unreal sound systems on the costañera street right in front of the hotel. I am a deep sleeper but a light sleeper would not have endured this.
