Fodor's Review

This well-preserved mansion has an illustrious past as the former home of Madame Elisa Lynch, the Irish mistress of Paraguayan dictator Francisco Solano López. Now the oldest hotel in Asunción, and not quite where the action is, it's nonetheless surrounded by verandas and manicured gardens. Duck inside to see the collection of 19th-century furniture and paintings and enjoy a cool cocktail at the bar.
