Sense of Place

In the elegant barrio of La Recoleta. Your neighbours include the late Eva Perón, who sleeps peacefully two blocks away in La Recoleta cemetery.

Alvear Palace boasts 198 beautifully furnished guest rooms and suites. Think crystal chandeliers, Louis XV furniture, Hermès toiletries, personal butlers and impeccable service - but with high technology in all the right places.

Food & Drink

The Alvear Palace wins hands down for the best breakfast in Buenos Aires and the fabulous La Bourgogne is great for evening meals.

Activities at Alvear Palace

There’s great shopping nearby and the Alvear Palace offers a personal shopper service to get the best out of the city’s boutiques. Don’t forget to take in a tango show at Esquina Carlos Gardel, (you’re in Buenos Aires after all), while golf and wine-tasting with an expert sommelier can be easily arranged. Our expert guides on the ground (mostly art historians, anthropologists and interesting local characters) can take you off the beaten track - or show you a new side to the well-trodden one - to markets, galleries and theatres.
