Good Hotel NOT on a Busy, Noisy Street

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 22, 2007

First, you must understand something about Brazilian building practices in general, and hotels in particular:
many of these buildings are built in very unique shapes. Unlike the standard square boxes that people in some other parts of the world are used to, room shape and size in Brazil can vary radically based on where in the building your room happens to be.

I was in room 1501, which in this rambling hotel requires going up the main staircase or elevator to the landing level, then walking through a corridor to a second set of stairs and an elevator leading upward a few floors.

The balcony is a nice touch: unfortunately some of the other hotels in Foz don't have balconies.

The "room" was actually divided into three rooms: an entry room with a small sofa (which can be made into a bed if required) and refrigerator, a main bed room which was also the home of the balcony, and a bathroom. The entry bedroom was an odd parallelogram shape, which didn't matter to me but obviously made it problematic to fit furniture into. Because various areas of the hotel have different shaped rooms, the exact size and shape of each of the rooms will be slightly different depending on where you are.

The functioning air conditioning was wonderful in this climate, but unfortunately the entry bedroom did not have air conditioning. It did have a window that opened, and this was enough for me.

During many times of the day, you will find complimentary coffee near the fish tank on the 2nd level lounge.

There is a game room with a pool table and a ping pong table.

Unique Quality: Breakfast: wonderful! Much fresh fruit (which is a plus when visiting Brasil! Why not enjoy some of the wonders of this great country? Why have breakfast with stale, boring contents?) and breads of all kinds, plus various meats and cheeses. At least two different flavors of juice were available at each breakfast.

Location: NOT ON A BUSY STREET so road noise was almost non-existant out the open window.

Store: the hotel has a souvenier store that charges less for some of the memorabilia items than you will find in the stores in town or especially in the park itself.

Fish Tank: in the lounge area level above main desk, there is a long fish tank.

Internet Access: about 6 reais for 1/2 hour, using a scratch-off card but only three computers on the lobby level.

Pool: very popular and sometimes during the nights rented out for private parties.

Live Music: one night while I was there, a private birthday party rented out the main floor and had a live band in the lobby.

The View: There isn't much to really see in this area of the city of Foz. However, the quiet nature of the street is a huge plus over some of the other hotels that are located on busy streets in the city.

Nothing in Foz is far from anything else: it is a small city. However, this hotel is very close to several restaurants and a small grocery store on Avenida Das Cataratas. The city bus route that goes from the city of Foz do Iguaçu to the National Park of the same name should not be far away either, though I did not use that service on this trip to Foz.

A Note on Price: There is no way I am going to report a price to you because I was part of a group, and the man who organized our group is frequently described as being better than a Brazilian at negotiating prices with Brazilians (he was a missionary here in the 1960s). So, there is no way the price we paid will be available to the average traveler! However, bargaining is part of life in Brazil, and if you are good at this, consider trying to get a lower price than the published rates.

Directions: From Avenida Das Cataratas (a main street), go past Rua Manêncio Martins and return going other way on other side of divider. Turn onto Rua Manêncio Martins. Right side of street about 100 meters from main road. Road divider = can't turn left.
