Alvear Palace Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This was my first stay at the famous Alvear (I usually stay at the Park Hyatt). It is a beautiful old hotel in a great location. The junior suite was very nice with a very comfy bed. The bathroom large and well-equipped, and the staff professional. The room came with a wonderful breakfast. Still, it could use a little updating. The carpet in the entry to my room was a bit worn, some of the electrical plugs were loose and didn't work, you need to be a bit careful with the drains (all just issues with any old building). I went to the lovely spa, but the men's dressing room was quite messy, and they were out of robes. Overall I like the place a lot, and if you love historic hotels you should consider it, but I would say the newer rooms in the historic Park Hyatt are a better match for my personal taste.
The Alvear represents everything elegant and traditional of a grand luxury hotel but with modern amenities. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a suite and were allowed early check-in. Very comfortable beds and a butler on each floor to satisfy every need of each guest. Wonderful spa!
This hotel was TOTALLY worth it. The rooms look a little outdated online and so I was a bit nervous but they were gorgeous in real life. The brunch the next morning was amazing and the setting could not be any more perfect. The staff was so friendly and gave us a REALLY late check out since our flight was so late that night. The bar looked like something out of a movie and the bartender was fantastic.
This was the best hotel experience we have ever had.
