Asuncion does not have many 4 and 5 star hotels. And only one in the downtown area, and that is the Crown Plaza.
I have stayed here three times for work. The staff is what make it a very pleasant stay. They are very friendly and polite. So friendly I actually even know some of their names: Vanessa at the front desk, Jessica and Ramon in the bar, Jose, the executive chef, and the food and beverage manager, a friendly Brasilian fellow, all go out of their way to ensure you are taken care of and satisfied.
The other waiters and bartenders all all great as well, but I have forgotten their names.
The food in the hotel is quite good. An excellent breakfast. The tapas in the lounge are very good as well.
The pool are is small, but it is quiet and the pool is refreshing.
The gym is slightly above a typical hotel gym, but not by much. The equipment is not exactly modern. I am afraid to run on the treadmill as I think I would break it.
Rooms are comfortable, modern and clean.
The only draw back is noise from the street on the weekends. There is a bar behind the hotel that blasts music until 4 am. It has woken me up, and I sleep with ear plugs. Hopefully the manager will try to get them to shut it down earlier.
If you find yourself in Paraguay, this hotel is a good choice and the staff will make you feel very welcome.

Some popular activities include visiting AsunciÃ³n's botanical gardens, which feature more than 100 species of tropical plants, the archaeological museum or enjoying a scenic cruise on the Paraguay River. Paraguay, formerly called The Giant Province of the Indies', was born as a result of the encounter of the Spanish conquerors with the native GuaranÃ indigenous groups. The mixture of these two distinct cultures was a process that gave this area unique characteristics that distinguish it from all its neighbours in South America. The living manifestation of this 'union' of civilizations is expressed most notably in the use of two languages, Spanish and GuaranÃ. ... more less
