Style: Opulent luxury Perfect for: Private events, weddings, meetings
Area: in the Recoleta district
Located perfectly in the chic Recoleta district, the Alvear Palace is the most elite hotel in Buenos Aires and attracts an impressive guest list - former visitors include numerous stars and dignitaries - from Sofia Loren to Nelson Mandela. With an eye-catching array of marble and bronze, first impressions are of opulence, panache and elegance - The Alvear effectively mixes Louis XV-style furniture with exquisite French ornamental art pieces. The famously historic facade was restored in 2004 to its original glory and continues to be admired.

Inside the rooms and suites guests will find carefully selected objets d'art offering a unique ambiance, while the works of well-known Argentine artists from the hotel's private collection further enhance the decor of the suites. The palatial rooms also include silk drapes and antique furniture. Each room is allocated a personal butler service while guests will be ensured of a good night's sleep in the comfortable beds dressed with 500-thread count Egyptian linens. Other nice touches include Wi-Fi, fresh flowers and baskets of fresh fruit. Most of the large marble bathrooms come with Jacuzzi baths, televisions and Hermes toiletries.

Over 550 highly trained professionals dedicate themselves entirely to satisfying the needs and demands of guests in the 197 rooms. This ratio equals more than two staff members for every room ensuring that the hotel's guests are well looked after at all times as befits a hotel with the reputation of the Alvear.


A favourite social setting that offers delicious breakfasts and the popular Alvear tea - it remains a place to be seen, and is a perfect spot for a smart/casual meeting.


Argentina's only Relais Gourmands establishment is forever popular, and has been rated as the 'best restaurant in South America' countless times. Decorated in elegant pastel hues, the formal dining room serves the city's top gourmands and never disappoints.


Business travellers will find their needs met here - with some of the most prestigious facilities in South America on hand. Hidden from view, but modern and effective, there are speakers, projection equipment and screens - business is part of the Avlear hotel and guests who need to work will be well looked after.
