UpFront Hotel Lanville
Ranked #58 of 79 Hotels in Foz do Iguacu
Reviewed 14 March 2011

We turned up at this place expecting the worse after seeing the other reviews however we were pleasantly suprised at what we found. Here's a quick review to give this hotel a bit of a fair representation.

First off the bad points... this place isnt modern and needs a serious refurb. Its also a bit behind the times when it comes to connectivity (i.e. you have to pay for Wifi and internet terminals).

However, we got rooms on the 7th floor which were spacious, comfortable, quiet and very reasonably priced for Iguacu. It had everything we needed for a 2 night stay whilst exploring the falls including a good breakfast and, most of all, was directly opposite a bus stop for both the Brazilian & Argentinian sides of the falls. It even had a large swimming pool to our suprise. The best thing about this place though was the staff we encountered (Graca & Diana) who did absolutely everything they could to ensure that our stay was a good one (even arranging onward transport after their in-hotel travel rep, Elton, let us down badly by not turning up as arranged).

If your looking for a decent place to lay your head for a couple of nights at a good price and arent bothered that the hotel looks like it is stuck in the 70's then its definitely worth a shot.

This hotel was a very big deception. Nthing to do with do with the photos in internet when we book it. The A/C was obsolet, very old and noisy. The room smelled very bad and the sheets where dirty. We had two rooms for 5 people and the both of us had to ask the reception to change the room. The swiming pool was very dirty, every day with more peaces of hair and another human organic disposals, it was creepy...
The only thing that was not bad (but not even good), I could say acceptable, was the food.

We arrived on an evening around 8pm and got a room without a double bed, me and my girlfriend had to sleep in separate beds, but the staff was going to give us another room the next day, so they said. The beds had really old and extremely thin mattresses, but if that wasn't enough, the (single glass) windows didn't close properly and since we had a streetside room this meant that we were forced to "enjoy" all the sounds of one of the busiest streets in a big brazilian city. When we demanded a new room the next morning they wouldn't give us one. The attitude the staff displayed was enough to make you go mad of despair, they just didn't give a @#$!
Anyway, when we returned from a lovely day at the waterfalls on the second day we discovered we had some pets, yep cockroaches! 3 big ones...
We went to the reception again, but again a steel face with no emotion, they didn't even bother to come up with us to check the room.
When on the 4th and last day we were also denied to take our bags (containing all our documents) into the restaurant we gave up and decided never to return to this place again and to make sure that nobody else will as well.
Please don't go here!!!! There are so many other much lovelier places in the vicinity. I just wish we knew before we arrived. I hope this will help anyone to make a better choice than we did.
