  • Old world charm, pure luxury!

    by cguy_6 on 2018-06-12 02:46 pm

    As a five star hotel should be -

    The Alvear Palace delivers on every level if your looking for a hotel experience of impeccable service & attention to detail (when was the last time a butler showed up to your room asking if there was any pressing needed after your day of travel, then mentioning that the first two garments are complimentary). The turn down service discreet and seamless, daily service of the room impeccable. The ambiance of the two bars excellent, breakfast room stunning, hotel location central and perfect.

    An amazing stay on all fronts, would return with out a doubt!

  • Fantastic

    by francobozzo on 2018-06-11 02:44 pm

    It's the very perfect example of how Argentinians can do it good. It is one of the most beautiful hotels in the whole country. The restaurant La Bourgogne, L' Orangerie, the Lobby Bar... everything is perfection. The brunch and the afternoon tea are remarkable.
    Rooms are spacious and luxurious. It might need a bit of inversion to renovate a few details, but it's not imperative. This hotel is one of the reasons why Buenos Aires has always been compared to Paris.

  • Great staff and location

    by SinBolsillos on 2018-06-07 07:34 am

    As a LHW, the Alvear Palace was great. Our suite was gorgeous, as was all of the Hotel's interior. The location in the safe Recoleta area of town is ideal, with a plentiful choice of restaurants nearby. Service was superb and the staff super friendly; particular thanks to Julian, Victor and our fabulous airport transfer Walter. Light snacks in Lobby Bar very good, pity Champagne Bar not open. Gym Ok, but a little cramped. Loss of one star rating from me is for the breakfast experience; not on a par with any 5* LHW I've stayed in; limited choice of cold meats and cooked items, poor a la carte options, and I have a real issue with top Hotels that clean up around you before breakfast time is actually over!

  • Great hotel

    by BarkerSJ on 2018-06-05 12:28 am

    We spent a few nights in the Alvear Palace hotel at the start of our South American trip. The hotel is perfectly positioned with great staff and equally great service.

    I have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

    We travelled through Trailfinders who recommended the hotel and a tour of the city which included a visit to the Carlos Gabrel tango show.

    Our local guide Lucy was excellent. We learned so much about the city and it's history. Buenos Aires is definitely a place to visit.

  • End of an Era

    by Felipe M on 2018-06-04 10:35 am

    I've started writing this review during my stay at Alvear. And I will begin with a disclaimer: this is still a hotel that anyone gets a fine experience! The location is privileged and they even have renovated rooms now (where you have perks such as electric plugs beside the bed, not present in the old rooms, and new showers).

    That said, while waiting a lot to get new towels (because of the lack of extra towels that I've requested by the time of my reservation) I had time to look back on my review of Alvear written in 2012. It's been six years since the last time I had stayed at the hotel and I was truly excited to come back to the hotel that once was my favorite one.

    Oh boy! Things have changed! I began to write this review on the third of my four nights stay! I didn't see the butler in charge of the 8th floor once... We used to be greeted by this person upon arriving in the hotel.

    Fruits are still provided, but only for the first night. Herm?s amenities are gone, except for one soap. I've noticed that some suites still get fresh flowers.

    Concierge services are still very polite, but don't go the extra mile anymore. Front desk is still managed by Jorge, but that feeling of arriving home that we used to have at this iconic hotel is not there anymore.

    I'm especially sad to write about the breakfast. It used to be amazing... I will restrict myself to mention that now they charge extra for any sort of eggs that are not served in the buffet. Take your own conclusions considering how cheap this sound.

    The conclusion of my review was written upon the end of my stay. I was really hoping to have a person to mention as an exception, as someone that got out of this mediocre service curve... There was no one. It's a sad review of what seems to be a bitter end of a fantastic hotel that turned into nothing more than a common hotel nested in an iconic building.

    Very unfortunatelly I can state that I don't have plans to come back to Alvear anytime soon...
