The Old Hotel at the Cataracts: No Longer Needed
On our final day in Parque Nacional del Iguazu, when we were on our own to wander at our leisure, we walked back uphill from the Lower Circuit to the area of the new Sheraton hotel, the only accommodations actually located inside the National Park. Just a few hundred feet away from the modern Sheraton stands the original old hotel used by tourists when visiting this amazing display of cataracts.
There does not seem to be much information available on the history of this old colonial-style building, but it seems to be quite empty these days. The 2nd photo gives a closer view of the architecture that so appealed to us.

The 2nd floor bedroom was spacious enough for our needs and also had a nice balcony with table and chair, giving us a view out to the Iguazu River. The bathroom was also adequate and, although all water was not working once when we returned from a trip, a call to maintenance had it flowing again in no time.
The air conditioning unit was just barely able to hold it's own in the summer heat, but it was enough to do the job. The mini-bar located in the fridge did not see much use. However, because the bar did not sell wine by the glass for our evening meals, it came in handy to keep our bottle of left-over white wine cold! The price of a whole bottle was A$20 (US$7) so in reality, about the same as a glass of wine in a fancy restaurant back home!
The hotel breakfast, also part of our package deal, was excellent with a great choice of fruits, pastries, cereals and so on. This room also served as their high quality restaurant for evening meals or you could order something at their lobby bar area which overlooked the swimming pool.
Located along a beautifully treed street, the hotel is only about a 10-15 minute walk from the heart of Puerto Iguazu. Staying in PI instead of at the posh Sheraton 20-km away at Iguazu Falls gives you more flexibility during the evenings to enjoy the nightlife of this friendly city.

Hotel Esturion Iguazu: Nice Digs in Puerto Iguazu
The 118-room, 4-star Esturion Hotel was selected for us by our internet tour organizer, Ripio Turismo, so we were picked up from the airport by our local tour operator, Cuenca del Plata, and promptly delivered to our accommodations. The hotel is located almost at the end of the streets in Puerto Iguazu, on the point of land where the Iguazu and Parana Rivers meet.
We liked the looks of the place as soon as we drove in through their big gate in the fenced-off hotel grounds. Nicely manicured grounds, clay tennis courts off to the side and a beautiful swimming pool at a lower elevation with colourful bougainvillea vines climbing the walls. It was looking good already!
Since we were pre-paid as part of the package deal, we never actually paid a room rate, but an internet site (details below) quotes their single and double rooms at about US$70. After a hot day walking around the national park at Iguazu Falls, we really enjoyed the pleasures of this hotel swimming pool!

Hotel Saint George: The Calm After The Fury
Big comfy rooms - this was the last stop on my travels so I decided to spend a bit extra and stay at a hotel rather than a hostel.
The big selling point is the pool - Iguazu is noticeably closer to the equator than Buenos Aires so escaping the heat can be very refreshing. Then the main problem is chosing between a sun lounger or a hammock...
Alongside the pool there's a bar that sells soft drinks, beers and (best of all) cocktails including some strong capariñas and frozen daiquiris
It's less than a 2min walk from the bus stop and a minibus comes past before each flight to BsAs to pick you up for a minimal charge. A taxi ride to the national park takes about 20mins and has a fixed rate of about $50 (argentinian).
$ 39 (single)
$ 46 (double)
$ 54 (triple)
$ 43 (single)
$ 53 (double)
$ 64 (triple)
(add $5 per person for dinner)
Prices may go up during high season (July & Holy Week)
All prices in US $
NB If money is no option you might also want to try booking into the Sheraton (www.sheraton.com - 03757 421 600). It's much more expensive but is the only hotel in the national park and has incredible views of the falls from many of the bedrooms

Sheraton - Iguazu: Stay right in the park
The Sheraton is the only hotel located right in the park. The other one's are in Puerto Iguaza and require a bus to reach the falls. The park closes to visitors at 6:00 pm, so you have the park to yourself.
Spend the extra money and get a room that faces the falls. Each one has a private balconey that provides an unobstructed view

Sheraton Internacional Iguazú Resort: Typewriter
I did not stay there, but if you want to stay in the National Park, this is the option.
No me alojé allí, pero si desean hospedarse en el Parque Nacional, ésta es la opción.
The building has curious a "typewriter shape"; from the front rooms you can see the falls; it has pool, restaurant, air conditioning, cable TV, safe box, smoke detector... even jungle and waterfalls!!!

The Sheraton in Foz De Iguazu: The hotel that has the most spectacular view
This is an example of a hotel where the location is so spectacular it beats everything else. Nowhere else in my mind, would you get a view of a thundering waterfall in full splendour from your dining room (with the possible exception of the sheraton at Niagara falls).
The facilities are OK. the breakfast is superb, but the dinner is very exhorbitant (by Argentina prices).
You have tours conducted from the lobby itself.
The rooms are OK. There is no carpet on the floors due to the 99.9% humidity in the falls.
The fitness center is adequate and there is a pool table and a ping-pong table to pass time.
The pool is also nice (but I did not see any pretty women there, only english tourists with big beer gut).
There are two types of room
1) falls view
2) forest view (which in my opinion should be caled no falls view but it is 30% cheaper).
The pool is good(heated).
high speed internet service available for 1peso /15 minutes.
As I have said it would be hard to imagine a hotel better located. And you can trek everywhere with well defined trekking paths.

Hotel Rafain Centro: More options in Foz do Iguacu
I stayed in Foz do Iguacu where there are far more options than in Puerto Iguazu in Argentina. However, there is a popular Sheraton right on the park grounds in Argentina, but the monetary difference between the price of the Sheraton and a good hotel in Brazil is greater than the cost of a Brazilian tourist Visa, so I'd suggest staying in Foz.
The Rafain was great. My room overlooked the swimming pool and had three beds (I only needed one, but that's okay), air-conditioning and cable TV. It also had a good shower and a big bathroom, although for some reason there was a small water leak that made the bathroom floor wet most of the time. There was a fridge in the room with water, soda and alcohol for really decent prices. The hotle also had a good restaurant, a bar, a nice pool and patio as well as a small workout room, an office with internet access (overpriced considering there were cheaper internet cafes within two blocks) and downstairs there was a pool table and ping pong tables.

Cataratas Hotel: Expensive but the best hotel near the falls
Colonial style and unique ambiance, especially compared to the other hotel "Hotel International Iguazu" which is a modern building (a nice building but tasteless in the jungle near the falls...).
Cataratas Hotel is on the Brazilian side of the falls. Hotel International Iguazu is on the Argentinian side. From the hotel, the view is better from the Argentinian hotel because it is taller but from the Brazilian hotel you are just next to the falls. Walk 1 minute and you're there.
It has everything you need, and the style. The restaurant was good and their breakfast was huge. I just wished the AC was cooler in the bedroom but it was still fine.
