This small 30 room hotel is well located in heart of downtown Asuncion. Just near Independencia Nacional. It was a 51,000 PYG taxi ride from the bus terminal (including Sunday penalty rate). It is a budget hotel I found recommended as clean and safe on wikitravel. It did not disappoint.
My room has a double bed, air-con, TV, wardrobe, window and a bathroom. It is simple but cleaned each day. Free WiFi Internet and breakfast is included. What else would you expect for 80,000 PYG per night? (Double 110,000 PYG).
The staff were fine and helpful when I needed something.
Breakfast is basic and includes coffee, bread, jam, butter and fresh fruit. You can ask for bottled water, beer and softdrinks from the basic bar anytime.
I have not been disappointed because it is exactly what I expect from a budget hotel.
There is a small corner cafe across the road to the left that sells good morning or lunch rolls and sandwiches. Late at night there is a street vendor on the corner to the right.
A quick walk north-east along Independencia Nacional and left after the two squares along the popular shopping street Palma and you are at Lido Bar, a highly recommended Paraguayan food bar. There is a Saudamaris ATM two blocks north-east along Independencia Nacional. The hotel accepts cash only, no visa or mastercard. NOTE: Only change as much money at the bus terminal as you need for a taxi (they have bad rates) then go to an ATM when you need to :-)
