The hotel is conveniently located for non-package traveler close to the bus terminal (across the street), where buses leave for both the Argentinian and the Brazilian Iguazu/Iguacu-National Park. There are also long distance connections allover Argentina and to a number of cities in Brazil. A number of restaurants are also within walking distance, while the city center is about 1 km away.
The hotel itself is soulless, perhaps a tribute to all the one-time visitors which never return. We were told having got an upgrade to the best category of rooms which predominantly was roomy. The ceiling fan switch needed a couple of hours to become discovered and the jacuzzi doubtless has seen better days; one jet nozzle did not work at all and it took twenty minutes to get the tub level beyond the jet nozzles. But everything was clean and worked properly - besides this fussy things.
The front-desk was friendly and helpful, but not always somebody was at hand who speaks English - you are in the heart of Latin America!
But by far the worst was the breakfast buffet. It was huge, speaking in dimensions, justified by the size of the hotel. The selection was so much the worse. In a subtropical region, overflowing with fruits, you got to sorts of juice, which both has been diluted with water. As fruits they offered water and honey melons, the latter so economically peeled, that you always got half of the melon skin. And there had been mango slices. They offered scrambled and hard-boiled, eggs, sausages OR meat patties, no hot ham or bacon. As cold cuts you could get the ubiquitous molded ham and pre-sliced cheese, e.g. no salami, which is produced in a wide variety in Argentina. Add toast and some danish and you have the full range.
As so often you pay for the privilege being at a place with a world-renowned attraction and not for the quality of your stay.
