Alvear Palace Hotel

History & Location

A symbol of elegance is born

The Alvear Palace Hotel is situated in the most elegant neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, La Recoleta. It is an area of extensive parks, wide avenues, and luxurious architecture in a classical style, where the best restaurants, cafes, antique shops and boutiques of Buenos Aires, are to be found. Some of the main museums and cultural centres are close by, and the financial area is only five minutes away.

Originally built as a luxury hotel to accommodate the increasing amount of European visitors arriving in Buenos Aires at the time, the Alvear Palace was transformed in 1932 into a model of the highest expression of refinement. The majestic rooms and suites, as well as the lobby and public areas, are reminiscent of the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles, which are evident in the furniture, the crystal chandeliers, walls decorated with gold leaf and works of art of famous artists.

The eleven-floor luxurious building with five basement levels stands as an undisputed symbol of the city, on the corner of Alvear Avenue and Ayacucho Street.

The second foundation
Continuous work and dedication, guided by the maximum standards of international excellence, led to the designation of the Alvear Palace Hotel as a member of the Leading Hotels of the World in 1993, an organization that recognizes the best hotels in the world.

Historia Hotel Alvear

Social Commitment

Alvear Palace Hotel is highly committed to improving the social, economic and environmental condition of the society of which it is part of.

Social Commitment not only involves the compliance and respect to laws and norms but it also implies our time, effort and dedication to achieving the growth of all of us as a community. The Alvear Palace Hotel's volunteer program was founded in 2006 with the aim of making a contribution towards the improvement of certain deprived sectors of our country.

The team was formed with a group of employees from different areas who cooperate in a committed and passionate manner, contributing their time, energy and expertise as hotel professionals.

Since the organization's philosophy matches our supportive actions, it generates great excitement and unique and unforgettable experiences for the needy children and their families. We seek to generate social awareness of our surroundings and focus our work on subjects that concern us such as poverty and education among children.

The fact that the Alvear Palace Hotel is a leader in the social history of Argentina fills us with pride and a great sense of responsibility as members of this organization.

We are committed to the efficient and rational administration of natural resources and, in line with our business philosophy, the Alvear Palace Hotel develops quality, occupational safety and health, and environmental policies.

While contributing to the preservation of non-renewable resources, we work and consult on ways to improve our processes and products; adopting sustainable practices, generating strategic measures such as the active promotion of recycling, reduction of water and energy consumption, and waste treatment.

We believe in the importance of awakening environmental interest, appreciating the responsibility of the Hotel within the community, and implementing all proactive measures in our power that may contribute to promote eco-consciousness.
