Stepping into Opulence
Arrived at Alvear Palace at 4:00 and our room was not ready. To their credit, they upgraded us to a beautiful Jr. Suite. The hotel is a true gem in a wonderful location. It has a wonderful feel for glamour of the past and superbly maintained. Staff does everything in their power to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Our only regret is our three night stay was too short.

Spectacular hotel in one of the best locations in Buenos Aires. Easy access to all places of interest. Staff are attentive without being overbearing and the restaurants and bars are well stocked. There are about three or four luxury hotels in the city and this is one of them.
