“Good value and Quality”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The Best Western Taroba is in the city of Foz do Iguacu. The rooms were small but good quality. The staff were very helpful. The free breakfast was good. There was a colorful section of town within a few minutes walk that had many stalls and storefronts for interesting local shopping. The town felt safe for walking. It's about a 20 minute cab drive to the Brazil sides of the falls. Overall, it's a very good choice and a good value.

It was a familiar trip. We were six people and we had two bedrooms which were very comfortable.They have a nice lobby. Very good location. Breakfaste was included and we liked it very much. I recommend it. The personal was very polite.

Iguacu is stunning and the Taroba is a really good place to stay. it is modern and clean, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the wifi is superb - the strongest in my whole 5 weeks in Brazil, it is secure with a decent, though small rooftop pool area. The rooms are small but comfortable and the breakfast provided is superb. Another good thing about the Taroba is the travel agency that organise so many different day trips at extremely good prices. i went to Paraguay and the Argentine side of the falls with them. Go to the Brazilian side yourself though, the bus stop is right outside the hotel, takes about 25 mins and costs less than 4 reals.
About three doors down from the hotel (go left as you leave) there is a brilliant bakery/cafe/restaurant. Brilliant meals and so so cheap, a really superb place to eat.

Having read the reviews on this hotel, I wasn't expecting too much. We arrived and requested a room in tower 2 as previous comments suggested. They only had single beds, but the receptionist said she would get the maid to join them together. She did this and it was very comfy. The only noise issue was the rain on the tin roof, but this wasn't a real problem. The staff were exceptionally helpful and spoke very good English. The room was an average size and perfectly adequate for our needs. It had air con and a fridge. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it. Loved the sculpted puppy towel! If you stay here, the buffet place on the corner next door is amazing, more meat than you can dream of and relatively cheap. The doce pao the other side has cheap snacks and drinks.

Room Tip: Tower 2 was good. We were on floor 3 and it was fine. Superior rooms are much bigger.

Great hotel . Good location short walk to the bus terminal if you want cheap travel to the falls and the dam .Good selection for breakfast but only one toaster but as i seemed to be the only one who wanted toast not a problem .Cheap restaurant at end of the road do not go to one recommended at hotel very expensive even with discount card . Small zoo opposite the bus station and a short walk to Avenue Brazil for the shops . At the time of my visit the swimming pool was shut for maintenance which was a shame

Room Tip: Room 2310 noisy fridge motor will wake you up in the night

Great breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, eggs and sausages. Rooms are pretty small and the showers were pretty cold as well. There's a great all you can eat buffet for 28 reales next door and a cab to the nightlife is only 10 mins away. Iguazu is a bus trip of about 30 mins away, make sure to check out the bird park as well.

Nice hotel, we were here for 2 nights to see the falls. The rooms were clean, although a little small. The maids do funky things with the towels, is there a school that shows tehm how to tie them into various animal shapes?

breakfast was a nice buffet, and the location is pretty good.

Staff were friendly, very helpful and smiled, which made a pleasant change from some of the other places we've been in Brasil.
