This is an absolute find! Everything about the place is perfect and the host ensures that anything you need is there for you. I've stayed in 5* + hotels that do not offer the same level of comfort and attention to detail. Highly recommended. Location is close enough to walk

Beautiful property in a quiet location, very comfortable. Ideally located for visiting the falls in Brazil and Argentina. We were made to feel very welcome by the host, Olé, who gave us very good advice and helped us with our plans. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We had a great time at Pousada El Refugio. The house is elegantly decorated. Our room was spacious, nicely furbished, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, served under the patio, in the garden. The owner, Ole and his son, Juan are friendly and very careful.

The trip to the Brazilian side is about 30 minutes, and about an hour to the Argentina side because of customs. Make sure you have your visas before you leave home. The hotel provides transportation (drop off and pickup) for about $30 if I remember correctly. Well worth the price. The hotel owner and his family all speak English perfectly.

Is there a contact email for Pousada El Refugio? Thanks!
Unfortunately, the TripAdvisor Question/Answer forum does not allow responses which include any contact information, that is even for a business noted on their site, such as El Refugio. Try searching international bnb websites or booking sites which have a large number of small hotels, bnbs or inns outside of North America.
