Alvear Palace Hotel

Alvear Palace Hotel


An elegant and indulgent experience in the upscale Recoleta neighbourhood.

Steeped in history, the Alvear Palace hotel first opened its doors in 1932 and has hosted countless famous guests, including Walt Disney, Joan Collins, Sean Connery, and King Charles III.

Designated an official Historical Monument in 2003, the hotel today attracts those seeking a swanky, old-world feel while staying in Buenos Aires.

What we love about the Alvear Palace Hotel

  • The majestic rooms and suites, as well as the common areas, reflect the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles. Look out for gold-leaf decorations, ornate chandeliers, and high ceilings in the marble foyer.
  • The Alvear excels in service, especially in higher room categories which include private butler service. You can expect top-notch service throughout your stay.
  • The rooftop bar and indoor infinity pool boast spectacular views.
  • The breakfast spread is known as one of the best in the city. And don’t miss the high tea served in L’Orangerie.
  • This palatial hotel is in a great spot for exploring the prestigious Recoleta.
  • Dine at the Alvear Grill, where cuts of meat are cooked on the quebracho wood-burning grill, complemented by a drink from Sommelier Lucio Rossi’s cocktail bar.
What to do at the Alvear Palace Hotel

Days at the Alvear Palace Hotel are best began on the leafy streets of Recoleta.

Start at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes or the beautiful theatre-converted Ateneo Bookstore. Return to the hotel for Alvear’s high tea, refuelling with a cup of Alvear’s own blend and a slice of cake. Spend the rest of the afternoon wandering San Telmo or the Feria de Artesanos de Plaza Francia, which buzz with life on the weekends. A great place to enjoy views of the city at night is the hotel’s rooftop bar, best enjoyed with their signature Malbec Sour in hand.
