We spent three days in early June 2014. Nice lobby, swimming pool and grounds. But once you get into the elevator, you'll see a hotel that has seen better days. It needs to be updated and painted. Room had a good size, it had a bed, a TV, a big chair a night table, a very small table, and that's it. The closet was old,not very functional and had a not working safe. The room had no decorations, needed new paint. Bathroom was the best part of the room.
There were some items that are missing from an international hotel. There was not a desk in the room. Also, there was a lack of outlets in the room. The two available outlets in the room were not international, which makes using a laptop or charging your phone difficult. (BTW, the international outlets are in the lobby. I bought an power plug adapter for USD 2, but it was not very good.). There was no coffee pot, no microwave oven.
The breakfast was OK, with local pastries, ham, cheese, some fruits, yogurts and bread. It'll fill you up.
If you go in the Winter and/or do not plan to use the swimming pool or enjoy the grounds, there should be better values than this hotel.
The staff is friendly, they'll order a cab and they'll recommend places to go, shop and eat.
The hotel is a bit away from downtown, a 10'-15' walk. It is safe to walk at night. You can take a bus (cheap) too, in front of the hotel. You can also take the bus to Iguazu Falls (with the sign CATARATAS on top), it costs around USD 5 each way. Los 3 Hitos, the shared border with Paraguay & Brazil is a 5' walk (worth checking out).
There is a taxi/private car stop across the hotel and it seems there is always a cab by the hotel's door. The driver will quote a price, but you can negotiate prices with them, bringing down prices by 20%.
