Gran Via Hotel Foz do Iguacu Reviews
A hotel all to ourselves Jul 06, 2010
Have you ever had an entire hotel to yourself? Well, it happend to us during our stay at Gran Via.
After driving all the way from Curitiba to Foz, we needed a cheap place to spend a couple of nights. After exhausting all options from our travel guide (those hotels and hostels were either fuly booked or charging outrageous rates) we continued driving away from the center in the direction of the Falls and suddenly passed this little place.
We stopped and tried our luck. The owners, a friendly retired couple - who use the lobby as their living room - only spoke Portuguese and showed us a few rooms. Since there was no-one (!!!) residing at the hotel at the time, we managed to bargain on the rate and decided to stay for a couple of nights.
Our room had seen better times but was relatively clean and still had all necessary comfort: airco, fridge, tv... and a nice large bathroom.
There is no pool but the free parking behind the hotel came in handy for us.
Even though we were the only guests, the lady still prepared a full buffet breakfast for us including fresh juices and 3 different kinds of cake. Funny note is the owner's poodle who's freely wondering about and begging for food. I offered him a piece of toast but apparently he only eats chocolate cake.
The owners were extremely friendly and made regular chats with my travel companion who speaks Portuguese. They gave us valuable info on where to eat etc...
Since we had a car, it was easy to get into the city for food, but in case you have no transport handy, nearby is also a shopping arcade with a few fastfood places.
Gran Via is just one of those not really attractive budget hotels, but the friendly owners and the good service surely made our stay!
