Our flight from Montevideo to Foz de Iguazu in Brasil went as planned, another time difference another currency! there is a lot to be said for the Euro.
We caught the local bus to the Falls and they are truely spectacular, They are hoping to be the 7th wonder of the world,and I really think that they are. They are HUGE! They can be seen …
Arrived in from Buenos Aires on a very early flight, checked into our hotel, and hot footed it (and it really is very hot here) over to the Brazilian side of the Iguazu Caratas Falls to get the full vista. En route with about a million other people we saw lizards, a small tribe of racoon-type critters (cute but they have teeth), spiders with big …
Day 2 and we headed for the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls to get really up close - you get the grand vista on the Brazilian side, but not the hair wetting. We walked all the circuits we could, and even managed a boat trip - I thought it would be a gentle misting and scenic way to see the falls from the bottom up, but we got an absolute soaking …
Iguazu Falls (or Iguassu Falls in the US), or Iguacu Falls/Foz do Iguacu in Brazil... Seriously can't we all just agree on names? Why do we change "Italia" to "Italy"? This "renaming" has always bothered me. The people from Argentina love their Yerba Mate. They fill their mate cup with the crushed leaves & continuously add hot water to it …
After Sao Paulo we boarded a bus for the first of the long bus journeys – 16 hours from Sao Paulo to Foz de Iguazu to find the coach full of British gap year students. Just when you think you are on the other side of the world... Luckily it was an overnight trip so after several hours of comparing who had the largest student debt / had …

We Stayed here for 4 nights and we were very happy with the whole experience. Really comfortable rooms, 2 beds in the double, I love my husband dearly , but a bed each, bliss!! Clean towels every day, Towels available for the pool. The breadkfasts were amazing! and plenty of it, help your self type, with delicious home made cake and flan, plus scambled egg, and of course dulche de leche! before coming To Argentina I never would have believed that I would eat it for breakfast!
They also have a good Italian Restaurant on site, that is very good and handy if you do not feel like going out on the town. They are about 3 blocks down hill from the bus station. A double is AR$380 a night and they will take off 10% for cash. Very quite and we had the pool to ourselves during the day when every one else had gone to the Falls.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Sorgente Hotel Posada Puerto Iguazu
Fantastica relacion calidad precio
Estuvimos dos parejas en octubre 2006. Reservamos directamente a traves de su pagina web.
El precio es barato en relación a otros hoteles de la zona. Esta limpio y tiene acceso a internet gratuito para los huespedes.
Las habitaciones son amplias y las camas cómodas, aunque los baños son pequeños y sí necesitarian modernizarse.
En qualquier caso, nosotros nos sentimos bien atendidos tanto por la dueña, que estaba "a ratos" y sobretodo por el personal.`
Los desayunos completos, con zumos naturales recien exprimidos, frutas, etc...
En general, muy buena experiencia.
Se encuentra en una zona tranquila de iguazu a unos 5 minutos andando de algunos servicios: restaurantes, bares, tiendas, aunque no hay gran cosa en el pueblo.
Excellent Place Never been better!!!!!
Excellent hotel... accomodation are nice and very clean. The Owners are nice people and kind... make sure you tell them you saw the review on TRIPADVISOR and they might cook for you a special Italian dinner.... they did it for me!!!!! It was one of the best home made dinner i have ever had. If you plan to go to the falls stay here, i reccomend it.
I found this hotel based on the reviews on this site and could not have been happier! The rate was more than reasonable, $150 Argentinian pesos for a room for 3--two queen sized beds and a twin (about $50 USD). The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully maintained with a swimming pool in the courtyard area. It is 4 blocks to the central bus station and there are several restaurants near there as well. The owner, Angela, speaks English as well as Italian and Spanish (possibly more, but that was my limit of understanding). She is happy to assist in planning what to see and the best way to get about (take the bus to the park and skip the group travel, though do the "Grand Adventure" to get on the river). There is free internet service in the lobby, though one of the terminals was not working while we were there. The continental breakfast each morning was wonderful, with fresh juices, fruits and pastries. Coffee is also offered in the courtyard during the day. The hotel did have a problem with accepting credit cards during our stay (the card reader was non-functional), but we were able to pay with US dollars and avoid the trip to the ATM (near the bus station). The hotel also arranged for us to be met at the airport though our flight was diverted to Posadas and we took a taxi from there. What a relief to be greeted by friendly, smiling faces at midnight, ready to direct us to our room! Upon our departure, Angela arranged for a car to take us to the Foz do Iguacu airport on the Brazilian side which really sped up the border crossing. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Me lleve un gran disgusto
Es muy mal atendido por sus dueños, fui por trabajo, la reserva la hicieron ellos, por lo tanto iba tranquila ,siempre eran buenos hoteles, pero siempre hay una excepcion!!!!Como llegue un dia despues (aunque lo cobraban igual ) me trataron tan mal que es indescriptible.los dueños son un italiano y una santafesina, ella tiene tan mal genio , que no se sabia que era peor si los enormes mosquitos y el calor o ella.terminaron desalojandome del hotel , sin dejarme duchar , era pleno enero,
como ahora, mi equipaje lo armaron ellos , aprovechando que estaba trabajando (soy medica)pusieron mis pertenencias en el lugar donde se guerdan los articulos de limpieza.Nunca pude denunciar tal abuso.Me olvidaba las parejas con hijos ,abstenerse , la dueña odia a los niños, se irrita mucho cuando usan la piscina,o juegan.Todo muy malo.
My wife, daughter and I stayed at La Sorgente for three nights while visiting Iguazu Falls. We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner, Angela, was most gracious and pleasant. She speaks excellent English and gave us hints on how best to see the falls. She gave us recommendations on places to eat and things to do in town. She also arranged for our taxi to the Brazilian airport so as to avoid the long delay at the border crossing. Our room was very clean and quiet and the amenities first rate. We used their free internet service in the lobby and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent breakfasts each morning. I highly recommend La Sorgente.
Delighted to have stayed here
Very happy with our stay in La Sorgente. It really is a beautiful pousada and among the best we stayed in on our trip to Brazil and Argentina. We were highly impressed with the entire pousada and the place is very good value for money. The staff were helpful throughout - particularly as I was unwell and needed to see a pharmacist. Yes, I would stay here again should I be lucky enough to see the Falls again soon!
Loved to stay in "La Sorgente"
I had great time. The owners speeks English perfectly, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast are amazing. At the check in ask to speek to Angela, Franco or Gianluca the owners. (tell them you saw the review on Trip Advbisor). You will find a very nice hospitality I had never found in any other hotels around the world.
La Sorgente - Perfecto!!!
La Sorgente is a small, beautifully furnished, immacutely clean hotel within walking distance of the bus to Iguazu Falls and the main business area of town. The English-speaking owner is friendly, provided us with the name of an excellent restaurant (one established before the hordes of tourists arrived) ordered pizza for us when we wanted to eat in and even offered to make salads to accompany the pizza. Breakfasts were included and were delicious. We had considered booking the Sheraton in the park and are so glad that we didn't. It is ugly, sterile and has none of the ambience of La Sorgente.
Estuve dos noches en el Hotel La Sorgente, en Iguazú a finales de marzo de 2006. En total, pagué 150 pesos argentinos (unos 40 €) por noche, con impuestos incluidos, por una habitación con tres camas.
Las habitaciones eran atractivas y bastante limpias: más o menos como de 2 estrellas en Estados Unidos. Había algún bicho en la ducha, pero creo que fue porque la ventana del baño no cerraba bien del todo, así que era inevitable. Eran más bien tipo mosquitos que se colaban por las rendijas, no cucarachas enormes ni nada por el estilo. En general, me marché con la sensación de que era un hotel limpio.
Estaba bastante céntrico y había mucho donde escoger para cenar sólo con caminar un radio de 6 u 8 manzanas, aunque os recomiendo consultar un mapa porque el trazado de la ciudad no es en cuadrícula y no es difícil dar un gran rodeo sin darse cuenta parar llegar al centro, si no se sabe bien a dónde va uno.
En el vestíbulo hay dos ordenadores con Internet a disposición de los clientes. También hay WiFi en algunas habitaciones. La mía estaba casi directamente encima del vestíbulo y tenía muy buena conexión. Os recomiendo que al registraros, comentéis que queréis usar el WiFI para que os den una habitación con buena conexión.
Había aire acondicionado en el cuarto, pero no calefacción. Por la noche bajábamos de los 15º C y hacía bastante frío. No me cabe duda de que, la mayor parte del año, el aire acondicionado es mucho más importante que la calefacción en la región del Iguazú pero a lo mejor os interesa saberlo, según en qué época viajéis.
Lo último que quiero comentar es que no sé muy bien qué tal hablan inglés. No digo que no lo hablen, pero como viajaba con dos personas que hablaban español, nos comunicábamos con todos los empleados en español. Creo que otras personas han dicho que no hablaban muy bien inglés, pero de eso no puedo opinar. A lo mejor otra persona que haya estado allí lo puede confirmar o desmentir.
Stayed at La Sorgente Hote in Iguazu for 2 nights in late May 2006. Paid $150 Argentine pesos ($48 USD when I was there) total per night with taxes for a room with 3 beds.
The rooms were attractive and mostly clean--probably 2 star by US standards. There were a few bugs in the shower but I think it was mainly because the window in the shower did not close air tight so this was unavoidable. Just little gnat type things that flew in the window cracks--not huge cockroaches or anything. Overall I still left feeling like it was a clean hotel.
The location was central enough to the town that we had plenty of dinner options within walking distance (6 to 8 block radius)--although make sure you look at a map because the town is not layed out in a perfect grid so it is easy to accidently walk in a big circle to get to the center of town if you don't know where you are going.
There were 2 computers with internet access in the lobby that were available to guests. They also had Wi-Fi available in some of the rooms. The room I had was located almost directly above the lobby and got a strong signal. I would tell them at check in if you plan on using the Wi-Fi so they can give you a room that gets a good signal.
The room had air conditioning but not heating. It was in the 50s at night while we were there and it got pretty chilly. I'm sure that a/c is much more important than heat at most times of the year in the Iguazu region but you may want to consider this depending on when you are travelling.
The last thing I would say is that I don't really know how well they speak English there. I'm not saying that they don't but I was travelling with 2 Spanish speakers and we communicated with the hotel staff completely in Spanish. I believe some other posters have said that they don't speak very much English but I can't verify that either way. Maybe someone else who has stayed here could confirm/deny this.
