The South Hotels

Hotel das Cataratas

  • Rodovia das Cataratas, Km 32 Map It
  • Foz do Iguaçu
  • Fodor's Choice


  • Right inside the park, a short walk from the falls
  • Serious colonial-style charm
  • Friendly, helpful staff


  • Rooms aren't as luxurious as the price promises
  • Far from Foz do Iguaçu so you're limited to the on-site restaurants
  • Only the most expensive suites have views of the falls

Fodor's Review

Not only is this stately hotel in the national park, with views of the smaller falls from the front-side suites, but it also provides the traditional comforts of a colonial-style establishment: large rooms, terraces, vintage furniture, and hammocks. The main building, surrounded by verandas and gardens, is almost 100 years old and is a national historic monument. Although the rooms are comfortable, it's the setting and atmosphere that you pay for—the chance to wander the paths to the falls before and after the hordes of day visitors arrive is priceless. The traditional Brazilian Itaipú restaurant and the Ipê grill near the pool offer all-you-can-eat barbecue and salad buffets.
