The sleek, orange-brick high-rise facing Plaza Uruguaya goes out of its way to impress: in the lobby, a giant chandelier shimmers above Oriental rugs, enormous urns, and a grand staircase. Rooms are less regal, but bright and comfortable. A breakfast buffet is included.

Walking into the marble lobby of the Sabe Center Hotel looks like stepping into "Lives of the Rich and Famous." Their staff is ever-helpful, and always solicitous of your well-being. Their dining room is excellent, with an exemplary "Continental" breakfast buffet that surpasses anything I've had on the Continent. And their business center is as plush and inviting as any executive suite. If only the rooms lived up well to this promise! Oh, they're
nicely appointed, but mine seemed no bigger than a cabin on a cruise ship. The bathroom is tiled and walled in marble, except for a molded-plastic bathtub that's very awkward to enter and exit. I nearly sprained my gizzard every other morning getting into the shower. If business calls me back to Asuncion, though, I'd go to the Sabe Center without hesitation.
