A symbol of elegance is born
A true palace and undisputed symbol of the Belle Époque, the Alvear Palace Hotel opened its doors in 1932. The hotel is located in Recoleta, one of the most stylish neighborhoods in Buenos Aires.
Conceived as a luxury hotel for European visitors, the Alvear Palace Hotel soon became the epitome of class and refinement. Work on the hotel began after Dr. de Miero, a Buenos Aires businessman and socialite, brought the first blueprints from Paris. The hotel’s famous façade was constructed by designer Verschere and architects Pirovano and Brodsky. The construction and decor of the hotel was designed by visionary engineers Escudero and Ortúzar, and the architect Medhurst Thomas and his associate, G.E. Harris.
The majestic rooms and suites, as well as the lobby and other public areas, reflect the style of Louis XIV and Louis XVI. The historical furnishings, crystal chandeliers, golden walls and works of art, transport visitors to another era.
With 16 floors of luxurious architecture, the hotel stands at the corner of Alvear Avenue and Ayacucho Street, and symbolizes the best of Buenos Aires.
