Alvear Palace Hotel
The number one address in Buenos Aires
Located in the exclusive Recoleta neighbourhood, which comprises elegant boulevards and leafy parks, the hotel has grand French-inspired public areas, with crystal chandeliers, velvet fauteuils and gilded-wood-panelled walls.
The landmark Alvear Palace opened in 1932 as a luxury hotel for European visitors and continues to exude Belle Époque splendour. Guest rooms, in Empire, Louis XV and Louis XVI styles, have butler service, fresh flowers and Hermès bath amenities. High tea, served in L’Orangerie, draws an elegant crowd. La Bourgogne offers the best French cuisine in Buenos Aires, where the Grand Chef Relais & Chateaux Jean Paul Bondoux delights and surprises the most discerning diners. Upping the luxury quotient is the 8,600-square-foot Alvear Spa, a serene, light-filled space offering a range of wellness and beauty treatments, including the Radiant Treatment, designed by La Prairie especially for Alvear.
Explore the beautiful European-like city, where you can enjoy gourmet cuisine, awesome shopping and the frenzied nightlife. Rub shoulders with the formerly rich and famous in Recoleta’s cemetery, fill your belly at a parrilla (steak restaurant), learn to sweep your leg dancing the sultry tango or shop for antiques in a dusty San Telmo shop. Buenos Aires is a wonderful city to explore and the grandeur of the Alvear Palace is your perfect base and an ideal oasis.
