The Paris of South America

Bienvenidos! A precise mix of indigenous culture and European influence, "the Paris of South America" charms its visitors with a combination of its high fashion, sultry tangos and sidewalk cafes ideal for whiling away the afternoon. At every turn, you'll find world-renowned Malbecs and expertly grilled steaks. The Alvear Palace Hotel was built by a doctor who fell in love with Paris in the 1920s and made it his mission to bring French architecture and influence to Buenos Aires. Today, the Belle Époque inspiration is still evident in every careful detail of the hotel's award-winning accommodations and white-glove service.

Fresh Things To Do

Featured Activity


  • Dining On-Site

    Lobby Bar. If walls could talk, the French-style wood paneling of Alvear Palace Hotel's Lobby Bar would have quite the story. Serving thoughtful cocktails with an international twist since 1932, this is a must-visit for a martini. 

    L'Orangerie. For the best breakfast buffet of your life, make time for brunch at L'Orangerie on the ground floor level of the hotel. A spread of meats, cheeses, eggs, fine bread and confectionaries is an indulgent beginning to fuel your adventures throughout the city. L'Orangerie is best known for its afternoon tea service, in which waiters in white gloves fill your table with cakes, mini pâtisserie, fresh fruit tarts, warm scones and your choice of green or black tea. Try the hotel's signature Alvear blend, a mixture of black tea leaves with almonds and rose petals.

    La Bourgogne. Celebrated as one of the finest French establishments in the country, Châteaux Jean Paul Bondoux specializes in elegant brasserie techniques. Try the seven-course prix fixe menu to taste a wide variety of specialties.

Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Buenos Aires Vacation

    Seasons are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere: summer occurs December to February; fall is March to May; winter is June to August; and spring is September to November. The weather in the "Capital of Tango" during the summer and "transition seasons" resemble that of New York City, with high temperatures, humidity and the possibility of storms. Winter is more akin to the mild climate of Los Angeles.
