“Old hotel in Foz”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2011

The hotel is not very close to the center of the city. The rooms are really basic, quiet clean and with a working air con. Prices are too high if compared with what the hotel provides

We just spent 3 nights in the Bella Italia Hotel and found it to be a great choice for our needs. Firstly the price was right, this included a free airport transfer, free wi-fi and breakfast for 2 each morning.

The hotel decor was a bit dated but it was spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. We had a problem with the air-con which we could not switch on, we called reception and a guy was there to fix it in 5 minutes (by this time we realised there was a master switch which needed to be activated as well as the remote control, our mistake, the air-con was working fine).

The breakfast was a buffet but with a wide choice, ranging from fresh fruits and juices, waffles and cake, to eggs, ham and lots of other cooked items. A good spread even for a vegetarian like me. I could not fault the breakfast.

We also had a buffet meal one evening (there are 3 restaurants within the hotel) which was also good quality with plenty of choice. Pastas (a delicious cheese lasagne), salads, meat, chicken, fish and many dessert options. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. The cost was reasonable, 2 meals, a beer, a glass of wine & a bottle of water came to approximately £34.

The location was also good. We were 500m from a shopping mall which had a food court and a supermarket, this was good for stocking up on supplies such as water & soft drinks (the mini bar in the room was expensive, like all mini bars).

The hotel is also 8 blocks from the bus station, an easy walk even in the sun. We took the public bus to the Brazilian side of the Falls, this cost £1 each way and was a quick and cheap option. The Falls themselves (the reason we were in Iguacu) were spectacular. The Argentine side of the Falls is further away and although public transport is an option we decided to take a taxi (organised trips are available from the hotel), the taxi there and back plus entrance to the National Park probably cost us £90 in total. There is a taxi rank outside the hotel.

Returning to the airport was done throught the travel agent within the hotel, the mini van that picked us up was on time and slightly cheaper than a taxi (we got a discount as the advertised price was the same as a taxi).

The hotel was quite busy with tour groups and maybe even a conference but the two lifts worked without fail and at no point did the place seem over crowded.

Overall, the Hotel Bella Italia was fine, not plush or fancy but clean, well located with nice staff & decent food. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a decent base for a few nights while visiting the Falls.

I made the reservation by booking agency. The hotel has everything we need for a few days. Hotel located in the central area. It has good service and honest prices. It has a fantastic breakfast. Has a tourism agency in the lobby that has excellent prices for tours and transportation My wife and I had pleasant days in Iguazu Falls. The falls are simply fantastic. I want to return to Brazil and especially to Iguazu Falls.

Bella Italia really provided excellent service. I realized after checking out that I left my smartphone at the hotel, and the staff made great efforts to send it to me in another country. This kind of honesty and service for a guest who had already checked out far surpassed my expectations, and shows what kind of hotel this is.

We stayed here for 4 nights when attending a friends wedding in Foz. The hotel is in city centre close to a road so there is some noise in some of the rooms. If you're not a very light sleeper it should not annoy you, it didn't bother us. The rooms are basic and has all you need and were kept nice and clean during our stay. There is a small pool incl. a very kids pool. The breakfast was pretty much a selection of everything and was very good, the best we had during our stay in Brazil.

The hotels offer free transfer from the airport and you can book it through their website. The have a chat and do speak English.

I would recommend this hotel if you're not looking for anything luxurious but still wants a nice place to stay. We had a nice stay and wouldcome back.

Plus : The breakfast spread, proximity to bus station, near city center, helpful front desk staff, lovely balcony

Minus : Room furnishings from the 1950s/1960s .. this is really a very old hotel

My hotel experience was great. Almost everyone I met in your Hotel was very hospitable, helpful and always had a smile on their face. It seems that everyone wanted to make sure that my stay was pleasurable.

Rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast served in your hotel restaurant is great and unmatchable. The food consisted of fresh fruits, many kind of breads, cakes, hot and cold cereal, juice, coffee, eggs, soups, meats and toast …. A shopping mall is close to the Hotel. The location of the hotel is not in the city center area.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Foz do Iguassu.
