    A beautiful building, but no different than Brazil. A lot of people asking in front of the building, but well policed around.

    Disagree with legislative decisions not can respond with aggression and violence. Beautiful place that is ignited fire and dirt around.

Where to stay in Asuncion

Most of Asuncion's best hotels cluster in the city center, which can be crowded and noisy throughout the day. Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.
