Regarding the location of the hotel - it was in the center of town with only a few blocks from the public bus station, which took us back and forth to the Iguacu Falls and to Itaipu Dam. It was extremely convenient and saved us a lot of money. There were also an abundance of cabs available - there were at least two cab stations located steps from the hotel. The location of the hotel was only a short cab ride away from the more happening part of town. However, the hotel was conveniently located steps from at least three drug stores, which made it very convenient to get snacks or anything else we may have needed. There were a few tourist shops and "restaurants" only steps from it. But the "restaurants" were more of an outdoor grub place that attracted a lot more of what appeared to be a local crowd or at least Brazilians. However, walking a couple of blocks from there took you to several good eat-in restaurants and churrascarias. So, this was not an issue. However, I would not recommend walking alone at night as some areas are a little scary.
Regarding the hotel itself- I was mainly impressed by two things: the great breakfast it comes with and the fantastic service from one of the front desk clerks, Henrique. The breakfast included cold and hot options, fruits, breads, and various breakfast beverages. Loved it! It was certainly something we looked forward to every morning and saved us time and money. With regard to Henrique, he was such a pleasant person, with a very kind demeanor...he seemed to genuinely want to help. He always greeted us and everyone out there and was very approachable. He certainly made our stay more enjoyable. He even helped us try to figure out how to get our wi-fi (which the hotel offers at an extremely low cost) to work. Henrique also speaks English, Spanish and Portguese very well, so it made it so easy for me to communicate with him and ask him for help with whatever we needed. I would highly recommend asking for him if you are staying there. His help was truly invaluable...a top notch front desk clerk!!
The room we got was on the lower end of the price scale, so I can't say that I was very impressed with it. When we initially got in the room it had a dank smell, but as soon as we turned on the air conditioner, the smell completely disappeared. The room size was good and the bed was good, but the pillows were flat. However, the hotel served its purpose and the service, location, breakfast, and wi-fi made it a great deal!
