This Belle Époque landmark, built in 1932, is Buenos Aires’ most exclusive, non-chain hotel. Located in the heart of the Recoleta neighborhood, this area of the capital is where Fin de Siècle French architecture and grandiose buildings whisper of the wealth from the early 19th century. The shady tree-lined streets have a decidedly European feel that many deem the Paris of the Americas.
Completely renovated in 2004, the Alvear has classical European decor with touches of Louis XV and XVI. Rooms are luxurious, spacious and include accents like fresh flowers, fresh fruit in the room, 500-count Egyptian linens, Jacuzzi tubs in the marble bathrooms, and Hermès toiletries. With a staff ratio of three-to-one, the Alvear is renowned for its sharp, professional service. Upon arrival, meet your personal butler who will assist you with unpacking, pressing garments, or any concierge service you may need.
De-stress in the spa or break a sweat in the modern fitness center, with Pilates and trainers on hand. La Bourgogne, under the supervision of French Chef Jean Paul Bondoux, is considered to be one of the finest restaurants in the city. At teatime, L’Orangerie puts on an English-style tea and the city’s best Sunday brunch. The lap of luxury, Buenos Aires style.
