Amongst them we find tourists, diplomats, company executives and personnel representing international conglomerates that appreciate the security offered by the Westfalenhaus Hotel.

      

Pictures older than 10 years - Here you will have an idea as to how all this started...

      

Friedhelm Angersbach and his wife arrived in Paraguay just over 29 years ago. In 1987 they opened the Westflanhaus Hotel that is well known for its German hospitality and which has received numerous international awards over the years. For us though, the most important awards are those given by our guests, some of which can be found in our guest book.

During these 29 years, that can be split into four stages of construction, comprise the building of what is today’s Westfalenhaus Hotel. Memoirs of the owner: “The start was very hard, we started with barely 8 rooms. We cooked, cleaned and were always at the service of our guests.” Today the Westfalenhaus Hotel, with its quiet, central, strategic location situated in the Trinidad suburb comprises 50 rooms.

      

The last addition to the hotel was made 12 years ago.
The occasion, the birth of our Piroschka Restaurant.

Located but a few minutes by car from the airport and the city centre. Modern elegance and discreet comfort characterize the hotel’s style. The rooms have been decorated with innumerable details. They have modern bathrooms, beds with orthopaedic mattresses, air conditioning, safety box, roof ventilator, cable television, mini-bar, telephone and Internet connection. For guests wishing larger space we can offer one and two- room apartments all fully equipped that includes: kitchenette, cooking utensils, plates, cutlery, microwave oven and coffee-maker. The ideal place for extended stays without having to dispense with the hotel services.

In our Gourmet restaurant, decorated in a rustic style, there awaits the visitor a large menu from which to make their choice. They’ll find a great variety of international and Russian specialities not to be found in any other Paraguayan restaurant. There are dishes for all tastes. Our chef will personally attend to any special order that may even include dietary or diabetic dishes, typical Paraguayan ones or perhaps just a simple juicy grilled steak of not less than 300 grams. “Our juicy steaks are famous” is the proud comment of Friedhelm Angersbach. Not only do our hotel guests eat in our restaurant but also an ever-growing number of Asunción dwellers. Many emigrant Germans also visit the Piroschka Restaurant to simply enjoy its congenial atmosphere.
