We had the basic room which was large and beautiful. Decorated in French style. The staff was fantastic. Especially the lobby bar. We ate there twice. The wine great, the small plates delicious and the service the best. Could not ask for more.

Had a wonderful stay here - it really is like a beautiful old museum. Enjoyed wandering through the halls and soaking up the atmosphere. Room was spacious and beautifully decorated with delicious Hermes toiletries. Breakfast was a bit more like a high tea than breakfast but nice for a unique experience.

I have stayed at the Alvear several times now and it is a beautiful, gracious hotel with excellent service. It is for me a little staid and old-fashioned but I can't really ding its rating for that, in fairness. The restaurant on the lower level is delicious and has an excellent wine list. Their concierge is knowledgeable and very helpful in suggesting restaurants and meeting spots.

The Alvear is supposedly the grand dame amongst Buenos Aires hotels and is the top LHW hotel in town. However we couldn't help comparing it with the markedly superior Four Seasons where we stayed a few days ago. Junior suites that are an apology, cramped size with little natural light and sad views of alleys or back windows of apartments. Antiquated lighting etc and just a feel of time having bypassed them. Nice breakfast room though the breakfast itself pales in comparison to the lavish ... Read more

I stayed here with a business delegation for 1 night in June. On the psoitive side, this hotel is excellently located in the middle of the old city centre, lots of shops, restaurants and bars are close-by. The service was excellent, pressing of a suit in 30 minutes was no problem, also room service was quick. The concierge is very knowledgeble. The rooms are opulent, lots of brass and gold - you feel like 100 years back, but the ambience is still nice (if one likes this style) as the interior ... Read more

Alvear Palace is what The Ritz is to London or the Waldorf Astoria to New York. Not only represents an important portion of Argentina´s history but also has a spectacular location. Elegance and style with the best service in Buenos Aires. There might be more contemporary alternatives, but if you want the unique and local flavor, this the iconic property for a BA stay

Wow, excellent service, awesome breakfast and luxurious rooms. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom in our room was a little stinky from time to time from old biggie. It is an old hotel. We added the breakfast option when we booked and was worth every penny!

If you're looking for luxury and incredible architecture, this is the place to stay. Walking into this hotel is like stepping back in time. The hotel is furnished with beautiful artwork and antiques, luxurious fabrics, the mattress is one of the best I've slept on in a hotel and they even put fresh roses in our suite which was really appreciated. The marble bathroom was beautiful and an absolute pleasure. Breakfast was something I looked forward to every day, just to be able to sit and enjoy the... Read more

At first a little intimidating as the surroundings are very opulent. As a family touring through South America we did not have the clothing that befits a hotel of this style. The dress code is smart casual. Nevertheless do not be put off as most diners at breakfast were wearing casual travel clothing. The service was impeccable and the dining areas from another era. Absolutely amazing.

This hotel is lovely in appearance! It is worth staying here for sure as it is the signature hotel of B.A. We have heard about this hotel for years but have not stayed until this trip. Our friends with us had a two bedroom suite and we had a regular room. To put this in context, on this same trip, we jumped in and out of B.A. as we were traveling for two and a half weeks. During our time in Argentina we stayed at three hotels in B.A. The Alvear Palace service was the least of the three hot... Read more

The Alvear Palace is a beautiful older hotel in a great location in Buenos Aires. The rooms were clean and elegant but some may need some updating. The food in the restaurants was very good too. If you want to stay on this side of BA, this is a great hotel.

The Alvear Palace Hotel was very nice and classy. We felt very safe and secure within and around the hotel. It was a peaceful place to stay without the noises of the big city. The staff was helpful and courtesy in every way. Check out the coffee cafe in the lobby... Good stuff.

From the time we arrived we were greeted as family coming home. The setting is so european, and the customer service truly world class. The level of care of the concierge team was truly OUTSTANDING in arranging transportation, show tickets, dining recommendations and suggestions of how to make the most of our visit. We were traveling with my granddaughters, one of them an infant who developed worrisome symptoms. The concierge on duty arranged for a trusted physician friend to arrange for a pedia... Read more

I had stayed here a number of years ago for business and always wanted to bring my wife for a leisure visit. That chance finally came, and we were not disappointed. Everything about the Alvear Palace is pure class. The service was impeccable. Literally everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful in a very genuine way, but that seemed to be a consistent theme across the city. It's not for the budget minded, but if you are willing to splurge for a special trip, you will not go wrong here... Read more

Always attentive service, all as it should be, always kept to very high standard, love the let me unpack and iron anything you need. The little something that is brought in the evening with the turn down, the toiletries Hermes, and the thick luscious towels. The always bountiful breakfast, fruits cheeses eggs, salmon, perfect service. Yet time or the situation in Argentina has affected this 'grand dame', maybe the ritzy competition, yet always my favorite

We were feeling a bit run-down upon arrival and Alvear staff took superb care of us, with very gentle treatment - even having the courtesy not to charge when we overslept and missed our scheduled spa treatments. Breakfast wonderful, we never stayed in for dinner because BA has too many great restaurants, but sunday brunch at L'Orangerie was very nice. We had guests from the city with us, a loud and vivacious group and probably not the easiest to serve, but the wait-staff nailed it. Everyone ha... Read more

We were kindly invited by a Porteño friend for Sunday brunch at the Alvear Palace. After a pleasant morning wandering the street markets of San Telmo we arrived at the hotel around 2.00pm and whilst waiting for our friend to get back from parking the car, I had a long chat with the concierge, Julian. He was extremely welcoming, helpful and provided us with lots of information regarding the hotel, it's eating options and other places to eat locally. He also suggested we spend some time after lun... Read more

Now I know Latin America, many years as a businessman and a tourist throughout the region. And when it comes to hotels this place may just about be the pick of the bunch so I'm going to keep things simple. Highlights: A chandlier in the room and Hermes toiletries. OK, so service is awesome, etc, etc, but do I really need to say anything else? This is just sumptuous luxury and you deserve it all. Location in Buenos Aires is also fantastic. Lowlights: You want me to say the price? Seriously, you... Read more

Alvear is the place to stay in Buenos Aires. Fantastic location and the bar is amazing. Miss the cigar lounge but the awesome staff makes up for a lot of things. Ask for suite on upper floor so you can enjoy the butler amenities. The spa is not to be missed but make appointments at least day in advance. Higher rates are worth the experience and location.

Stayed at the palace September 2016 and had a wonderful time. Cannot imagine better service or more luxurious surroundings. However the whole package has to be the neighborhood as well. This is located in quintessential BA. The area is safe and the parks are abundant. The shopping is wonderful and an eclectic mix. Don't miss this opportunity.

Love this hotel! It's very elegant (which I LOVE) - the staff are very professional and helpful. We ate at the restaurant very late (1am) due to a delayed flight, and the service and food was excellent. Excellent location - would definitely recommend.
