About This Listing
1500 square feets in a 15th floor with the best view of the Bay of Asuncion in the main town park. Two bedrooms, a desk, spacious living room. Internet and WiFi connection. Air conditioning in all environments and fully furnished.
The apartment is close to the financial and goverment zone of Asunción, full of restaurants and bars. Have taxis on the door to go for anywhere and bus transportation very close.
The park in front of the building is one of the safest areas of the city and you can walk arround without problems.
An excellent location if you wish to do business in Asunción. The view on the river and (part of) the town in breath taking. The appartment is clean, the service is very friendly. Taxis are easy to get and you find car rentals and walking distance. There are some excellent restaurants nearby. The kitchen is small, but offers enough facilities to prepare breakfast and a light lunch.
This apartment is huge and it's very well located, specially if you are going to Asunción for business.
It has a really amazing view of the bay specially at night, and most of the local traditional food places are nearby.
The only downside for me was the kitchen, which only allows you to prepare basic dinner.
For the rest of it, it was all perfect. Pablo is a very comprehensive host to whom you may talk comfortably of anything you need there.
Even the girl that cleans the house was very friendly!
I would totally go back!
The apartment is better than described or seen in the picture.
This apartment is in a great location across from Plaza Uraguaya in Central. The park has been totally redone and we felt very safe there during the day and the evening. Bolsi restaurant (#1 on Yelp) is about a ten block walk straight down the street (to the left as you walk out of the building). We walked this during the day and after 11pm and felt comfortable. There are several other eating places within walking distance.
Taking a taxi is inexpensive so if you want to go anywhere in greater Asuncion it's typically less than $10 US each way for a full taxi. The airport is around $23 US, but it's about 55 minutes away. There's a door man for the building and he's very kind and remembers who you are.
The views from the apartment are amazing during both the day and night. You can sit out on the balcony. The place has both heat and ac (we tested both) and is spacious with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was very clean! There are two elevators in the building.
The only con was that we thought one of the beds was very hard so please check with Pablo to see if he has replaced it if this is a concern for you. Pablo communicates well and his English is very good if you don't speak Spanish. His nephew speaks excellent English and was fun to get to know. When you're in Central you will need to expect some noise from the traffic below and fireworks can be random due to football games. My guess is that you won't hear any of it because you'll have the air conditioning on, but we were there during the winter and didn't need the ac much. Also, please don't expect a gourmet kitchen as the kitchen is somewhat limited. We did well with cooking breakfast, having sandwiches for lunch while out running around and eating out for dinner. That's a great vacation!
The people we met were all very kind and easy to get along with. The country is under rated and we feel you will come to love the area like we did.
Should we go to Asuncion again, we would certainly consider staying in this apartment again. We enjoyed our stay!!!
