A great place to stay.This is how a hotel is supposed to be run. The staff are gracious and always helpful.The lobby,bars and dining room are beautiful with marble, high ceilings and polished copper everywhere. It doesn't look dated, just wondefully maintained. The location
is perfect. Recoleta is great for walking around with some great restaurants nearby.

What a pleasure to arrive here after a long flight from LHR. The entrance to the hotel is breathtaking, reminding you of times gone by. The rooms are luxurious and the service is epitomised by the butler that looks after each floor. Truly lovely even for a relatively short stay

Room Tip: A room towards the back of the hotel will naturally be a little quieter than one close to the street

Sumptuous and elegant. If you are interested in the Recoleta part of B.A., which is akin to Fifth Avenue in NYC, this is the place to stay for the full experience. The high ceilings, polished marble floor, and white-gloved service take you back to a time when elegance was the norm for most travel to cities. Expensive, yes but well worth the price. The staff is very attentive and helpful. We are not usually room service fans, but the room was so beautiful that one night of our stay, we dined en suite and it was just as nice as going to a hotel. The beds are heavenly. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the Alvear and used it as a base for our side trips from Buenos Aires during our vacations. It was everything we expected. It is a beautiful, ornate, historical hotel that is extremely well kept. Unlike many other historical-icons, this one impressed us because it is very well kept and the service is excellent. From concierge to bulter to front desk, everyone was polite and helpful. The room was comfortable but the bed a little too soft to our taste. Breakfast is included and it is of very high quality. Our favorite time of day was the cocktail hour at the lobby bar, a great experience! The area around the hotel, recolleta, is clean and very parisian like.

Room Tip: The view from the rooms (we stayed in 3 different rooms) was nothing special so no special recommend...

My friend and I stayed here and attended a wedding reception here and it was first class all the way. The hotel is stunning and the service is absolutely 5 star. Its in a great location just blocks from Recoleta cemetery. It is very expensive so our stay was short but if you want a splurge of luxury this is it.

Lovely hotel with old world attention to service. The fresh flowers in the room and Hermes soaps a fabulous. Charming and helpful staff. Especially loved the hotel bar for an evening drink before or after the evening out. Would also suggest taking advantage of the spa and realted services. Travelling alone, I especially appreciated the hotel's location but more importantly it's attention to detail in securing my comfort.

Stayed 2 nights in a junior suite, service was amazing and flawless, the concierge was on the fone for 2hrs helping me with flight changes! Our personal butler was super friendly and prompt, the food was incredible! Not to mention the PALACE atmosphere of gold trimmings, chandeliers and fresh flowers with ornate high ceilings highly reccommend it, the only thing was I had to follow up regarding cancelling the pre authorisation block on my CC which was a pain!
