After more than 24hrs traveling, i was picked up at the airport at 3am as promised, by (the always smiling) Marcos.. what a welcome site. There was a receptionist at the front desk that didn't speak English, but he soon found another very helpful staff member that couldn't do enough for me. The room is very comfortable, decor a little bland but the bed... well, my head hit the pillow and I don't remember waking at all during the night. Woke feeling well-rested, revived & ready for the day's activities. Again, the staff were amazing, helping get me out to the falls and see them from every angle. I don't want to keep raving about the staff but one guy even walked me down the street to show me exactly where the electronic shop was! It's only day 2 but I think I can safely say Maria Rica Hotel has been a great place for a solo non Portuguese speaking female on her own.

Room 204 was in a poor condition. We can't close the window in the bathroom. The shower has one tap and the hot water is heated with an electric heater at the top of the shower. Fear of electrocution! No toilet paper!. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a buffet an very satisfied.

No hot water, fan not working, unstable Wifi as well as rude & incompetent staff. We had to ask to change rooms. The cardholder wasnt working and the staff woke us up at 11pm to pay. This is not how clients should be treated.

Pros: All staff was all helpful. They had shuttle bus services to Iguazu Falls which were much cheaper than taxi. Its location was also close to the bus stop. The breakfast included offered eggs, fruits, cakes, tea and juices which were good enough for me. The room was clean and quiet. Cons: The air con was not cool enough. There was a remote but the temperature was pre set. It didn't look like as 18℃ as it said. The supermarket and the currency exchange shop were a bit far.

The pictures on the website show a greater place than what it actually is, regardless of the fact that there is some work in progress. We had a very old room with broken windows and breakfast quality was not good. Nevertheless, it’s very close to the bus stop to Iguaçu Falls and it provides shuttle services to the airport and the Argentinian side of the waterfalls.

The hotel charged me full amount on 10/11/17 for my booking number 1128302495. In addition, I noticed that they had charged me $50.35 on 10/18/17. what for? This booking was made through booking.com. I had contacted them, but they asked me to call the hotel and resolve the issue? why? This booking was made through Booking.com and they are responsible to find out what their suppliers are doing. I contacted my credit card company and disputed the amount. The hotel took two months to agree to the disputed amount and did not contest. They very well could have not disputed right away instead of waiting for two months allowed for contesting. Anyhow! So right now, refund is not an issue. Issue is why booking.com did not do anything inspite of my several e-mails? Booking.com gets their commission every time their suppliers get money from the customers, so they knew they were guilty and did not do anything. Also, hotel itself has never informed me why they are cheating customer with extra money? Both hotel and booking.com believe that customer will not noticed the extra unethical charges and they can pocket the money. Shame on this hotel and Booking.com for cheating their customers with unethical practices. Note that Booking.com is also unethically advertising 10% Genius Discount. I noticed on one of my booking that they never gave me that discount even this was advertised on the site. It took me two months of e-mails exchange to resolve this issue with Booking.com for their unethical practices. Please note that two more hotels that I had booked through Booking.com also overcharged me. All these within a one month of my bookings with Booking.com. I am filing separate review on the other two; namely Real in Mexicali as well as Divi Divi Hotel. Booking.com forward the credit card information to their supplier so supplier has customer’s credit card information. Booking.com let them do whatever the supplier wants. Note all the other hotel sites charges themselves and have much better control. Amoma had booked my hotel twice. May be, I clicked twice. I contacted them, and issue was fixed within 5 minutes of my phone call. Booking.com could have called their supplier while I was on the phone to take care of the matter, but they asked me to do that instead. Also, they kept asking me for bank records even though they were provided their hotel name, booking date, and amount that was overcharged. It was their booking and they should have complete records and should have never asked for that. Again, shame on Booking.com for their stupid way to run the business. Also, for cheating their customers. I have all my correspondences with Booking.com in case anyone needs that

Nice room, downtown location! Good for 3 star Brazilian hotels. Breakfast average. Clean. Happy with the choice, Good price for the service and the room. Recomended for short stays, Just a block away from the bus that takes you to the Falls, Brazilian side. 30 minute ride.

The hotel is quite worn down. The rooms have their wear and tear but they're clean and spacious. Its location is the main selling point - 5 minutes walking to bus stop to the falls, Itaipu dam and the shops. Staff tried to be helpful but they are quite limited by lack of English.

The hotel itself is in a good location, the rooms are spacious and clean. What let it down was the attitude of a couple of members of staff. We turned up from a 21 hour night bus at approx 11am. Given the size of the hotel, and the fact that in 17 continuous months of travelling we've never had a problem checking in a little early, you can imagine our disappointment when we were told, somewhat bemusedly, that we couldn't check in until 2pm. Fine, but there were no doubt rooms free - nobody was in the room above us for the first two nights - and we actually witnessed people turning up at a similar time two days later and being allowed to check in instantly (by a different member of staff). Common sense should prevail in these situations. On our last night, the air con unit in the room above ours was incredibly loud - to the point where we got no sleep. I went downstairs at 6am, frustrated at the fact that we had to check out in 5 hours and then wait for a night bus, feeling exhausted. The man on reception was entirely unsympathetic, saying that nobody else had complained and there was nothing he could do. Besides, we were checking out that day, what's the problem?! If only I could upload the recording we made of the racket that unit made, it was obviously broken and I told him so. He didn't seem to care. We were in room 707, in case you end up stuck beneath it too. There were a couple of friendlier members of staff (both female) but the general attitude left a lot to be desired.

My friend's and I stayed at this hotel for two nights whilst visiting Iguacu falls on our mini Brazil tour. It's not very expensive and it is very close to the centre of town so you can walk to and from restaurants/bars etc (although beware - there are hills :). It is easy to access from the airport and the hotel will organize cars to both sides of the falls for you. They will also exchange Real to Pesos at the reception desk which you can do also at the Falls however the rate is awful so I would suggest you do it here. Make sure you take enough money for entrance and food as we didn't and you need to eat when you are walking all day!! The breakfast is fine, not the best I had on our journey but there was a reasonable choice, they seem to love cake for brekkie in this part of town. It is quite hard to find where breakfast is though as it isn't very well signposted (its on the 1st floor). The rooms are a good size and were clean. They didn't have a safe for us to put our valuables in which was disappointing. In our first room the aircon was not working properly in and started to drip water, when it is 40 odd degrees outside this is the last thing you need! It took a lot of persuading of the staff to move us into a different room but they did eventually. All in all if you are looking for a good budget option when staying in Iguacu Falls I would recommend but don't expect anything too fancy.
