My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Nov. 2010 while we were in town to see the Falls. The hotel (actually a motel) was so terrible that it took away from the beauty of the falls. We couldn't wait to get out of Iguazu and spent as little time as we could at the hotel. I only wish we had read other reviews before we booked it, but we planned our trip to the falls at the last minute. Knowing how beautiful the falls are now, i would have paid more money to stay at a nicer place!
The location is average. Its along the same major highway between National Park and downtown, and only a 10 minute drive to both. There are several hotel and hostels in this area, so pick something else!
Our room was AWFUL! Mold in the hallway, patched ceiling in the bathroom, toilet not well connected to the wall, old smelly mattresses, and damaged locks. The air conditioning barely worked and was loud. As such, the room remained damp. The walls hadn't been painted in years and were several different shades of colors, not to mention there were several holes/patches.
The WiFi only worked in the lobby and the breakfast was subpar (i found a dead fly on one of the pastries). The internet barely worked but cost only $1/hour. There are 2 pools, although only 1 had water. The outdoor deck wasn't fully furnished and had several broken lamps. It appears as if the owners haven't spent any money on this hotel in ages.
Definitely stay somewhere else!!!!
