  • Excellent hotel, huge and with a very pleasant environment. Has several gardens and a swimming pool. The downside is the price, and that gets a little away from the Center and points of interest. The rooms are very tidy and comfortable. All rooms are well-decorated, trying to bring a new atmosphere and ancient at the same time.

  • We went to lunch at the Grand Hotel in a second. Very good service. The style is all-you-can-eat buffet, but I believe there are choices of dishes executives in other days. There are so many food options, but it's all great and the price is right. There is a beautiful garden on the outside.

  • Get the upgraded rooms (they are a little more expensive). The swimming pool is very nice in a garden area that is very peaceful. It is a great place to lay back and enjoy Paraguayan hospitality.  more »

  • The physical accommodations were in line with what you would expect from an establishment of this type. However, the service left a great deal to be desired. My husband and I booked this hotel because of the reviews which described it as “quaint”, “romantic”, and “historic”. It sounded perfect for the last night of our travels in Paraguay. We had booked a room with a queen size bed through an online booking app which we confirmed before arrival. Upon arrival, however, we were escorted to a room with two twin beds. After explaining the situation to the bellhop, he seemed confused and said that's what we booked. It was not an issue of understanding. My husband is Paraguayan and speaks both Spanish and Guarani as a native. Returning to the reception desk, we were made to feel very uncomfortable, receiving sharp stares. While the whispers were quiet, I assume that they did not realize that my husband understood everything they said. Finally, we were sent to the room we reserved and paid for with a lame apology from the reception desk clerk and stony silence from the bellhop. The unwelcoming atmosphere we received at check-in meant that we really did not experience any of the romantic charm we were looking for. We got the same looks of disgust when checking out the next morning. Quite an unpleasant last day.
  • This is a wonderful Hotel. It was the salon of Madame Lynch, the Mistress of Francisco Solano Lopez. The place has a lot of history and is a comfortable and friendly place to visit in downtown Asuncion, Paraguay.. It's like a little Oasis with his fine Gardens and swimming pool. I really like the place.
  • Great colonial atmosphere and marvelous garden. Helpful staff.
  • Good food, nice service. I like their oldie Asunción style of the building.
  • Lovely historic hotel with beautiful gardens.
