5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and this one comes close. It had everything common travellers like us would need or want. The Palace room was spacious but not large. It was clean and up-to-date. The breakfast was just wonderful and the bar was a great place to hang out. It was close to everything we wanted to see and do. It's in the best part of town. If you don't mind the price, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We were in a Palace room (room 720) and it was plenty large for us. We had a view of the flower and...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights prior to a cruise. We have stayed in hotels all over the world, but the Alvear was the best: the rooms are beautiful and arranged for comfort including daily fresh fruit and bottled water; the service is the best I've ever seen; the food (don't miss the breakfast buffet) is fantastic; the concierge never steered us wrong. What a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

This hotel is certainly one of the most beautiful hotels we've ever seen. It has a genuine old world charm. It is so luxurious, and yet has every modern touch.

The service was absolutely the best Ive ever experienced anywhere in the world. They attend to every detail. The butler comes to you within minutes of being called. Room service brings a dinner 15 minutes after its ordered,

The room is magnificent.

The food - at every food out - was 5 star quality.

This hotel is certainly one of the very best hotels in the world.

Room Tip: We were in the premier junior suite - which was a wonderful room - and they upgraded us - at no cos...

My husband and i just returned from a stay at the wonderful Alvear Palace in Dec. 2013.
I would like to say that this is probably one of the most beautiful well run hotels i have stayed at in the last 40 years. The location is wonderful like Rodeo drive in Beverly Hills. Beautiful parks and outside cafes and shops. .
The high tea is so elegant and the service so lovely and refined. Coming from Los Angeles i am use to some of the finest hotels but this i would say is among the finest in the world.
Wonderful concierge service. Cant say enough.

My husband and I stayed at the Alvear in December 2013 for the first 5 days of our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better start. From the transfer from the airport (this is more expensive than getting a regular taxi but saves so much time and hassle) to checking out we had the most incredible experience. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff are wonderfully helpful and gracious. The Alvear deliver exactly what you would expect from a well established 5 star hotel - absolute class.

Stayed 3 nights over New Year. Loved the room, the staff (mostly) and the hotel in general, which oozes class and luxury BUT we attended the New Year's Eve black tie Gala Dinner which we thought was a rip-off and which was made worse by the APPALLING breakfast service on January 1st where there was a queue of around 40 people at 10.30, most of whom - including us - waited between 10 and 20 minutes to be seated and which was entirely caused by the fact that they did not have enough staff or managers on duty. Other than that we loved the hotel which although pricey was very good value.

Dear Guest,

Thank you not only for staying with us but also for taking the time to write about your recent experience.

While we were happy to hear that you enjoyed your overall stay with us, we were disappointed that you encountered a few issues, specifically with our Food and Beverage Department.

For those issues I wish to apologize and can only hope that they won't prevent you from returning to The Alvear Palace Hotel the next time you travel to Buenos Aires.

The Alvear is beautiful and elegant with outstanding service. It's equl to the Willard, the Stafford and
L' Europe in Amsterdam. We dined at the La Bourgogne and the food was superb. The Alvear is expensive, but worth it if you want the best.
