With its stone façade, which came straight from Paris, its magnificent chandeliers, marble columns covered in gold leaf, and chequered black and white floors, the Alvear Palace Hotel has been 'the' luxury reference in Buenos Aires for over 80 years.
The Alvear is the favourite hotel for celebrities: Prince Charles danced the tango there as did the fashion designer Oscar de la Renta and the French actress, Catherine Deneuve. Each room is decorated in Louis XIV style, offering feather beds, Egyptian cotton sheets and Hermès bath products.
The ultimate luxury: a butler will put away your luggage and iron your clothes. In the afternoon, enjoy tea in the Orangery for a moment of pure delight. The restaurant La Bourgogne serves refined Argentine cuisine.
