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.

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
