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!

Sheraton Iguazu Falls: Falls Views from our room
There is only one hotel inside the park and the Sheraton Iguazu Falls is it. The hotel is quite nice looking but main reason you want to stay here is for the accesibilty to the park and the fantastic views you have with a Falls View Room.
We totally loved our room and althought they couldn't accommodate us with a king room (the hotel was completely booked), we did enjoy a beautiful fall view room. The bed was very comfortable with nice sheets and covers. The room had a nice small table with two chairs and complimentary fruits upon our arrival.
The hotel also has a wondeful swiming pool which we took advantage of on our first day's arrival, a great spa, lobbly lounge, some shops, a wonderful restaurant and great staff.
Another great added advantage to this hotel is that is it located inside the park so you only pay the entrance fee to the park once and you can enjoy it as long as you are staying here, so you won't have to dig in your pocket to pay again.
The highlight of our stay was of course the balcony where we enjoyed breakfast one morning while gazing out to the falls in the distance.
The views of the falls is the top reason why anyone would stay here. Our room, a double was quite comfortable with all the amenities you want in a hotel, the bed and bedding allowed us a very comfortable night's sleep.
The pool was amazing, the water was perfect especially on a hot day. The restaurant although a bit pricey was quite nice and we have to complete the staff, which were quite nice and very accommodating as they feverishly tried their hardest to secure us a King room (albeit, something they were unable to do).
I would definitely stay here again, and you

Sheraton Iguazu: The Best Bet Here
There is so much to say about this hotel. First off let me open with it is 30 years old and is showing its age. Do not come here expecting 5 star luxury and a perfectly put together hotel. The real winner and why you want to come here is because of the view and how they treat SPG members.
From the moment you exit the taxi upon arrival there are people there offering you excellent service. Your bags will be taken by the bellhops and they will lead you to the check in counter. Here you’ll be welcomed by what seemed to average four members of the staff including a very visible manager as well as your first view of the falls.
As I am only SPG gold right now I booked the cheapest falls view room I could for our first paid night. Marcela who checked us in told us our room wasn’t quite ready yet but we could take our bags up and leave them there and in less than 20 minutes the housekeeping staff would be done. She seemed very happy to be giving us room 350. And we were very happy she did.
After sorting out our two reservations and getting us squared away our bellhop took us up to the 3rd floor, the top, and showed us our room just far enough from the elevators to be quiet but close enough to be close. The room itself was much more basic than I thought it would be but I do believe it to be one of the better rooms in the hotel.
As you walk into the room the door was on the left side of the end wall. This allows the bathroom to open up on your right and the room behind it to open to the right and out to the balcony. It appeared that every room in the hotel has a balcony and that some on the 2nd or 1st floor had LARGE balconies that extended out over the banquet hall. Complete with a large king bed and a chair or two the room was sparse but functional. Stone tile floors as are very typical in the warmer climates. But as we said before, oh the view!
This is the ultimate in location as the hotel is located inside the National Park. The trails run right out of the back of the hotel and you’re into the jungle near the falls immediately. Complete with signs about the illegality of feeding the monkeys.
The hotel restaurants and bars as well as the spa and other facilities are covered by specific tips.
I will be very hard pressed to stay anywhere else when I come back to the falls.

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!!!
El edificio tiene una curiosa forma de máquina de escribir; desde las habitaciones del frente se ven las cataratas; tiene piscina, restaurante, aire acondicionado, TV cable, caja de seguridad, detector de humo... incluso jungla y cascadas!!!

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.

The Old Hotel at Iguazu: Empty Verandahs
We detoured through the Old Hotel as we continued on our walk from the cataracts back to the Visitor Centre of the Parque Nacional, where we were to meet our taxi at a pre-arranged time.
It was nice to wander the empty verandahs and corridors of this now abandoned building, especially for the shade from the hot afternoon sun! We did not see anyone else there as we peered into rooms and explored the old building. I think some of the rooms may still be occasionally used for small meetings of groups of naturalists or the like, but I am not sure. One thing the tourist literature does mention is that, if you have an unfortunate encounter with a spider or snake, you should head to the First Aid Centre located in this old building as fast as you can!
We liked the old hotel - it reminded us of our long-past days in Africa. I hope that this amazing structure is preserved as part of Argentina's history. So far, it still seems to be in good shape.

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.

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.

Hostelería la Cabaña: Iguazu's Best
This was the nicest hostel I stayed in travelling around Argentina. The service (the hostel´s owners) was excellent, the pool and its surroundings were charming, the breakfast was delicious, and the price was very resonable. The location is also very convinient, between the Iguazú center and Tres Fronteras.
It was 70 pesos for a double room.

Sheraton Iguazu: Hotel inside the National Park
My understanding is that the Sheraton is the only hotel inside the National Park on the Argentine side, it's rather ugly on the outside butI hear it's very nice on the inside. I saw many recommendations for this hotel on travel boards and I imagine it has stunning views of the Falls. You are, however, inside the National Park and would likely have to patronize their restaurant for breakfast and dinner and their website mentions that there is ongoing construction.

Sheraton Iguazu resort & spa: The only hotel in Iguazu National Park
This Sheraton is right in the Iguazu National Park and allows superb views of the falls, along with good service and food. The walk from the hotel to the nearest falls is about 20 minutes but that is a lot better than traveling in from the nearest town. Besides which, once you walked the falls, it was absolute bliss to be able to walk back into the air-conditioned hotel!
We paid for a room with a falls view and it was well worth it. It cost an extra $50 on top the normal price of the room but to get up at sunrise and see the mist glow pink and slowly burn off was majical. We also got a thunderstorm one evening and watching the falls light up with the lightneing strikes was something to behold. Unfortunately, I did not manage to get any pictures of this spectacular display but it is something that I will never forget.

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
