The Alvear Palace Hotel in Buenos Aires is one of those hotels which makes one feel truly privileged to stay in. It is a Grand Hotel in the truest sense of the word. Every aspect of the hotel is as near as faultless as can possibly be! To my mind there is only ONE single shortcoming in this hotel. Unbelievable but very true! Just ONE! And that is the disappointingly small indoor swimming pool and the lack of an outdoor one. Other than this minor gripe there is absolutely nothing else that can be faulted. It delivers comfort, luxury, service and opulence in heaps and bounds. Don't believe me. Read for yourselves all the other reviews and see for yourselves. Or, better still, go there and experience the outstanding luxury that this hotel offers. This is one hotel (admittedly one of very very few ) where one dreams of returning to at the very first opportunity.
