Description:

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.

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.

Experience a fresh take on classic Argentinian cuisine. Modern elegance is combined with an innovative and contemporary steakhouse concept.

Led by the experienced chef Sergio González Crubellier and Chef Pâtissier Melisa Amato, Alvear Grill is undoubtedly a renewed interpretation of major identity local cuisine, which surprises both tourists and the local public.

The new proposal joins the new trends of Argentine cuisine to taste premium meats. The menu offers à la carte selected non-traditional cuts of steak - unique in the market -, from the wood-burning grill of quebracho and espinillo behind the glass, in view of the relaxed diners who enjoy preserved from the classic aromas of firewood and spices embers.

With an elegant and current presentation, the meats go with garnishes of complex flavors, which perfectly pair with each cut. In addition, the menu also has vegetarian options.
