Alvear Palace Hotel
Recoleta (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
One of the best hotels in Buenos Aires, the Alvear Palace is charming and full of character. An historic 1932 building in the heart of the elegant Recoleta district, the hotel is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World group. It is on a very fashionable shopping street, and from here, most of the city’s landmarks, particularly the famous cemetery, are within easy walking distance. The hotel is famous for its Alvear Afternoon Tea in the pretty L'Orangerie restaurant and La Bourgogne, the formal restaurant, has an excellent reputation. There is also a rooftop bar and a pool bar.
There is a health club offering a small pool and spa treatments and a rooftop covered pool.
Each guest has access to a 24-hour personal butler service. The rooms are beautifully decorated with fresh fruit and flowers each day, and are very comfortable. There are TV/DVD screens in the most of the bathrooms, and all have jacuzzi baths.
A lovely hotel from which to explore this vibrant area.
