“an excellent hotel in a poor country”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

I traveled in South America: Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile. At hotels, the 4 stars are well below European levels. Another general problem: very poor internet connection.
Watch your pockets in the street.
This hotel, in Asuncion, a very good surprise. An veritable 5 stars hotel

Room Tip: I recommend a room overlooking the market at a higher floor

Guarani is a slightly outdated hotel located in the heart of Asuncion, which depending on reasons of your visit can be a good or a bad thing.

Rooms are good size, but the cleanliness could be improved.

Hotel staff was OK, their English was somewhat limited, and you can see they were trying to help (we were trying to find a place to play some tennis in Asuncion) but they always seemed to be unsuccessful.

For Paraguay I think it's an OK hotel, but due to its location could be overwhelming for foreign visitors.

Although the hotel has comfortable clean rooms and the staff is very kind and solicitous, the hotel occupies a whole block with rooms facing four noisy corners of Asuncion downtown. Therefore one must keep in mind that the comfortable rooms have nasty noises from the streets nearby; air conditioner and ear plugs are needed. Breakfast is just ok and so are the amenities.
On the other hand, being downtown gives access to a full set of attractions at reasonable prices. Shops (electronics, clothes, crafts etc) and touristic attractions are within walking distances. Asuncion downtown is also very safe to walk even at night.

Bad experiences. Air conditioning not working. Tight quarters. High prices. Terrible service from reception. I tried a whole morning talking to Ms. Lydian booking, without success. Only appearance in the lobby! Never re-use it!

Very central location. Great breakfast buffet. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was very good, as were the cocktails. Nice poolside beds/chairs. Relaxed haven in the city!

This was not my first time staying there. I never had a problem before but the last visit at the hotel was not ok. I booked a suite on the top floor with a view to the bay, when I got there I was given one with no view. After a long talk with the receptionist ( she was telling me they were full, they had no other rooms and that the room she gave me was the room I requested, luckily I had a copy of my reservation and after I showed it to her she found a room for me ) I was given a room with a partial view of the bay. Next time I go to Asuncion I will stay somewhere else.

I arrived at the Guarani around 3 am after a delayed flight from Montevideo. I barely got a greeting from the receptionist (busy sending text messages on his phone) who checked me into a room the size of most bathrooms with a twin bed and rather uncomfortable mattress. The next day after breakfast (see below), I asked for another room and they did accommodate me, giving me a queen bed and slightly bigger living quarters. The rooms are basic - flat screen TV is only 22" and barely viewable unless you're standing 2 feet away. Rooms were clean, as were the linens. The bed in the 2nd room was actually quite comfortable and the air conditioning was amazing - a nice treat to come home to a cool room after a hot day in Asuncion.

I was sort of disappointed with the breakfast. Juices were excellent and freshly squeezed. Coffee was quite good too, but the scrambled eggs were very watery and I had to wait 15 minutes for the bacon to arrive. Service was good, though, however throughout the hotel, nobody spoke any English, which could be a problem for non-Spanish guests.

Service is professional (sometimes abrupt) but I wasn't made to feel overly welcome, like you would expect from a four-star hotel. Best things here are the powerful air conditioning, very strong wi-fi throughout the hotel and location - close to all the old government buildings, and a pretty big outdoor pool that was clean and a perfect temperature. The neighborhood looks sketchy but it's actually quite safe, even in the middle of the night.

Next time I come back, I will likely pass over this option and try the Sheraton.
