Editorial review:

You'll feel like a king in this lavish, classic Alvear Palace hotel in Recoleta that feels like you went back in time. It's located in the nicest neighborhood in the city and is surrounded by expensive shops. It has a posh atmosphere that naturally results from excellent service and very comfortable rooms, some of which have large baths and plasma TVs. The dining is so enjoyable you'll want to return just for the food. Most people said they didn't want to leave this amazing place.

                THe staff were professional with an excellent standard for service. I loved the old-fashion butler service. They were particularly friendly to my 8 year old daughter who came with me. The location is superb - the best in the city. I would definitely book through you again and return to that hotel. We had a wonderful time. The hotel is beautiful and something really special. The room-service wasn't the best, but it won't change us returning there. I hope this has been helpful.

                The room service wasn't great. I don't mean the food, so much as kind of messing up our orders. They quickly corrected it though, so you can't really blame them. The hotel was very full and I think they were just extremely busy.

                I loved the quality of service which was outstanding in all areas. Room attendants, restaurant and bar, conciergerie, front desk, and even. Operators

                They charge to much for computers at the business center. The foid offered for room service is wirhwr fair or good, but it is muxh better at the restaurantes

                Good location; cigar bar & wide corridors

                Too noisy & busy in the lobby; too many functions daily; very poor drive-in; separation walls too thin; need sound proofing as I could hear the toilet in the room adjoining my suite. Poor room service menu & service. Overall poor value for money when compared to the luxury hotels in different parts of the world. I am a very seasoned world traveler & have stayed in most of the reputed, luxury, city hotels, which is the basis of my comparison & my remarks.

                Hotel is simply amazing. Staff was very helpful, concierge services were really great, and breakfast/lunch were amazing. The restaurant La Bourgone was where I had the best meal in Buenos Aires.

                There was one thing in particular that I didnt enjoy. I had a spa treatment (which was really good), but the massage I had was terrible! For a hotel like Alvear, I has expecting nothing but a fantastic massage, but instead I had a masseur who left me with a back pain. I do not recommend massages there (at least with that one masseur - Victor, I SUPPOSE, NOT SURE)

                Most of the staff spoke English which was helpful. Concierge service was great.

                Sometimes the individuals getting the taxis were not very helpful. Other times service was slow. For example, when a request was made the response was "someone will be right there". Oftentimes "right there" meant an hour.

                building, location & service

                It is expensive but I guess that is why everything is very good.

                we liked the bell boy service, the historical style

                the rooms were too small, old and not well maintained and way over priced!! we did not like the service we received in the dinning room at breakfast and it was over priced and not good value. the spa serice was good but the spa was very small, old and not efficient or comfortable. Not a very relaxing atmosphere the furniture in the lobby is old and ugly and worn out!!

                One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Most friendly and relaxed, but with impeccably high standards
