“Just ok”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

We chose not to stay at the Sheraton, which has a fantastic view of the falls from the lobby, but just so-so accommodations. Instead, we took our package operator's advice and stayed here. We had a "master room". It was clean, good bed, no bugs, a frig and roomy. That's all I can say, then, again, the options I noted in a ride around the town did not appear to be much better. I did view from the hallway a standard room--that would not be a room I would want to stay in. The included breakfast was an adequate buffet. Location is several miles away from the national park entrance to the falls. I believe there is a bus that goes by the door that would take you directly to the falls, but we did not use that service.

Room Tip: Opt for the "master room" upgrade.

The hotel is located between town and the national park, therefore convenient, but you don't see the town at all. The rooms were fine, the staff helpful and friendly but the restaurant was a catastrophe. They had at times only two waiters for a whole room full of people and those were unattentive and slow. I got food poisoning from a noodle soup in the restaurant and was in hospital for one and a half day. The manager was extra friendly to us afterwards, but that did not make it better.
On top, the pool is very dirty, they should get a proper filter.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in January 2012. I was booked here by a tour company after my hotel of choice (in the centre of Puerto Iguazu) was booked out.

The hotel itself is fine. It's pretty basic, but clean and comfortable with a decent bathroom, good air conditioning and free wifi. It also has a really good pool area.

The people at reception were quite helpful. There was always somewhere there who spoke English.

What I didn't like about the hotel was the location. It's about 5km out of town on the road to the falls. If you are happy to hang out at the pool at the end of the day, it would be a good choice. As someone who is not a pool person, I found it very isolating. There is, however, a local bus that goes into town from just outside the hotel (for 2 pesos I think) - I did that one day, but didn't really feel like it after a day at the falls in the heat/humidity nor on the next day in the pouring rain.

The other thing that I didn't like about the hotel was the breakfast. I ate breakfast in various hotels throughout Argentina and Chile on this trip (including some really basic places in Patagonia) and this was, by a very long way, the worst breakfast of the trip. The bread for toasting was really really stale and on one day was mouldy. It wasn't the end of the world and there were other things that were ok. There was plenty to choose from, but the overall quality was far below much more basic hotels.

I opted for the bar menu rather than the dinner buffet. It was pretty good and very reasonably priced.

Spending 2 nights in this hotel, for exploring Iguazu Falls, located on 2 lane highway outside downtown Puerto Iguazu.
We booked 3 Days tours of Iguazu Falls, Brazilian and Argentinian site, Triple points, so there were no problem with transportation.
It's a basic 3 star hotel, the furniture in the room and the bathroom is bit outdated.
Good size Outdoor Swimming pool is refreshing.
Nice buffet breakfast is included, Bar and restaurant are reasonable, price for Buffet Dinner is about $21.00 USD. Front desk is very helpful and friendly, some speaks decent English. Free Computer internet access in the lobby and WiFi in your room.
Overall is OK for a short stay in Iguazu Falls on the Argentinian site.

Stayed here for two nights in October. The food and accommodation were very good and an ideal base to visit both sides of the falls

If this were a three star hotel, it would be fine. Having read the other reviews I'm mystified by what they wrote. The rooms are clean but the furniture and decor is old and getting shabby. The breakfast is basic...mostly continental but with scrambled eggs. Not terrible but certainly not the massive feast implied. It's also quite far out of the city so you're kind of stuck. The pool is nice, however. This is in no way a fantastic 4 star, but if you're looking for something cheap and clean it's fine. Not great, just a place to sleep.

Room Tip: They're all a bit damp and old so you're not going to get anything super luxurious.
