Seems to make an jump in the past. Elegance with style, superb service, quality. The opposite of the modern american hotel chains. Try the experience of 1 night stay. Hotel area has also many shops if you have no problem to spend money....

I went to this hotel thinking it was old and not so good. I really changed my mind. Simply fantastic. I had an upgrading to a suite because we wanted separeted beds, fantastic food and a very good spa and fitness center. Fantastic breakfast and amazing people that work there!! Really highly recomemded

The hotel is very classic and elegant. It is by no means modern. The staff is very friendly, professional and well trained. My room was very large with a desk alcove very large bathroom but consistent with the decor and style of the hotel. If you are looking to step back in time to a more grand period of hotelier history you will like the hotel. I was a bit frustrated with the lack of universal power outlets and the shower head that didn’t work. The breakfast is excellent.

If you want to go chick on your trip to Buenos Aires don't miss one night in alvear!!! We stayed in alvear on our way back from Ushuaia and before going back home! Strongly recommend! Old fashion design with lots of history! Spacious rooms with good service in every aspect! Breakfast not to be missed in lovely winter garden l orangine!

This is a very fine hotel. First rate service. Lovely dining at La Bourgogne. Top quality. We were treated so well. The Concierge was wonderful getting reservations. You can't do better in BA. Try the little attached patisserie affiliated with the Chef from La Bourgogne. Fabulous pastries.

This is a classic luxury hotel with a grand lobby and all the amenities. The service from the door men, bell men, front desk staff, concierge, waiters and waitresses, were all first class without being pretentious. Our room was beautiful with a spectacularly comfortable bed, big shower, and a deep whirlpool tub with a TV at one end!! The A/C worked great. We had the hotel do some laundry for us and even that came back packaged like beautiful holiday presents. Would definitely choose this hotel for a future return trip.

If there are really eight better hotels in Buenos Aire than this one (it is currently number 9 on Trip Advisor) the Argentinians are fortunate. Others have touched on the quality of the accommodation (which is superb) and the ability of the Alvear Palace to marry the traditional with the modern. I have rarely felt so comfortable. Okay, it is at a price, but sometimes the price is well worth paying and for anyone looking for a special hotel, perhaps for a special occasion, I wouldn't look much further. What I would like to highlight particularly however is the quality of the staff and the extraordinarily high level of service offered. We faced a number of problems during our trip, including an assault and robbery whilst in the city; the hotel were not responsible for these problems but dealt with them calmly, helpfully, and positively. Equally, a late cancellation of our onwards flight was met by a willingness to be flexible. We were simply given the room for the rest of the day, without charge. I was astonished by how far the desk were prepared to go to help us. The hotel is not perfect; I could be a little critical of some of the food; I am not sure the legendary brunch is as good as it once was (we have two previous experience to go on) and breakfasts, whilst lavish, seemed hit and miss in terms of service: getting a coffee proved impossible one day and staff attitudes to us varied. The roof bar is a good addition but noisy, especially when a large group is there, and the choice of music was pretty awful to my ears. But on the right evening, with a bottle of good fizz, it worked. In any case, these are niggles, because overall I have only positive memories of a great room and great people who care for their guests. A marvellous hotel.

If you want to feel coddled and living in a European style first class hotel, then do stasy here. In addition to the excellent hostelry and professional help, you have a choice of restaurants, and the very best sunday brunch in town. Sunday can be alittle loud, though, unless you ask for a table at he winter garden, which has a gtlass ceiling and is very luminous and quaint. As an alternative, on Saturdays a buffet lunch is served there which closely approximates the Sunday brunch and much quieter. Both are worth the experience.

The Alvear Palace Hotel certainly was located in an excellent area of Buenos Aires. It is in an area where there are parks, wide avenues, and luxurious architecture. There are also some great restaurants, cafes, antique shops and boutiques. Some of the main museums and cultural centres too are close by.

Beautiful classic hotel with great service. Terrific breakfast included. Nicely situated for touring and shopping. Great bar, but the cigar room unfortunately no longer exists. Well equiped work-out room.
