Beautiful old world elegant hotel. Fabulous suite. Very comfortable bed. Wonderful bathroom. Amazing breakfast Convenient location. Wanted to treat ourselves to a 5 star experience on our first visit to Buenos Aires. The Alvear Palace delivered on every level. It was an expensive 6 night stay but well worth it. We look forward to returning to Buenos Aires and another stay here.

Great hotel with exceptional service and very nice rooms. We upgraded to a suite which was very nicely done and comfortable. Beautiful bar and lobby areas and we also enjoyed a dinner at the grill. Comfortable bed and nice linens too. Breakfast is in a lovely large space with a garden area too.

The Alvear is a gorgeous classical hotel. What impressed me the most, aside from their iconic breakfast from, is the impeccable maintenance of the hotel. Amazing service! Large comfortable rooms and beds with excellent mattresses. It was a memorable experience to be repeated!

Before I booked I was deciding between this hotel and the four seasons. I stayed at the Alvear. What I will say is the four seasons has standards (bed and bath linen, room upkeep that the Alvear may not have as a rule) if you regularly stay at the four seasons you will not enjoy your stay at the Alvear. The people are wonderful, hotel architecture is beautiful (furniture very old and stained).

The hotel is beautiful and we had a very pleasant 6 night stay. Our room was comfortable and spotless. The concierges were top notch, as were the bell men and doormen. We enjoyed our dinner in the Grill restaurant (excellent steak) and the lobby bar.

The Hotel entrance is very impressive. The staff is extremely helpful. The concierge is very efficient and managed to get us a table straight away in a one star Michelin restaurant. The rooms are extremely clean. It is definitely a luxury hotel that merits its stars.

The worst customer experience of any allegedly 5 star hotel we have stayed at and we are regular global travelers who have stayed at hundreds of top end hotels. Numerous problems during our stay. But the worst of all was we have hundreds of erroneous charges on our credit card that were only posted after we checked out (at check out those charges were not there). We have emailed the hotel three times about the incorrect charges and no one from the hotel will respond. Terrible customer service and dishonest billing practices. Not recommended unless you want hassles.

Dear Mr. Nathan, I hope this message finds you well. I'm pleased to inform you that our hotel took immediate action upon discovering the error and promptly withdrew both charges on the same date they were mistakenly processed, which was March 11. Furthermore, on March 19, we initiated a claim with Prisma, the company responsible for processing all Visa transactions in Argentina, to address the delay in crediting your card. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We are optimistic that the credit to your Visa card will now be reflected in your statement without further delay. However, should you encounter any issues or if there's anything else we can assist you with, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention, and we appreciate your understanding and patience throughout this process. Best regards, Nadia Salvagno Assistant to the General Manager

Stunningly beautiful old historic hotel with very comfy beds and surprisingly large rooms! Check in was easy, all of the staff we interacted with were lovely, and we definitely were won over by that BA charm. We were only here for one night, but would have absolutely loved to stay longer, we will need to return!
