    Very good

    The Smoking Bar, breakfast, bed and bath.

    There were never enough people at the reception counter. I was kept waiting more than once. Upon arrival I had to carry my own bags into the hotel, as there was no one outside to help me.

    All aspects of the hotel were excellent and comfortable

    Some staff were aloof and less than welcoming..... But not to the detriment to our stay in ba There are other top hotels in ba and we would probably chose another on a future trip.

    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

    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)

    Fabulous

    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.
