New Alvear Icon Hotel is a 32-floor modern building with great panoramic views located on the banks of Río de la Plata River in Puerto Madero; the most developed district in Buenos Aires. With an innovative vision, the hotel invites guests to revel in the most striking views of the city through the windows of its guestrooms, restaurants, bars and a fabulous Spa. Luxury accommodation offers state-of-the-art aesthetic concepts, where ample and bright spaces predominate. With a wide range of restaurants and bars, it sets new trends and surprises both frequent and occasional guests. Superb buffet breakfast to start your day and fine cuisine in the evening can be delighted at Kayla Restaurant while overlooking the great panorama from the 31st floor. Rooftop Crystal Bar is the perfect setting to cozy up. Committed to upscale dining, the hotel opens the doors of Glitter, South America´s first deluxe glatt kosher restaurant and Milk & Co, a trendy kosher dairy bar.

The hotel is best located in modern puerto madero away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. There are lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance. The property is super modern with great interiors and very stylish decoration. Everywhere you look you see beautiful things. Rooms are spacious, well furnished with white marble covered bathrooms. Beds are super comfy. The view is great. There is a wow spa on a high floor with pool, gym, saunas. steamrooms etc. All very stylish and the view on all sides is stunning. Dont miss it! Great bar and restaurant high up in the tower where a great buffet breakfast with view is offered. Cool lobby level bar with great drinks and beautiful interior. Service might however be better. One has the impression that not all staff is trained properly. I was missing a friendly and service oriented attitude in almost every staff-client facing situation. Service was not bad but as guests we did not feel overly welcome. To give an example: One evening I asked for turndown service when we went out for dinner. Coming back we realised that no turndown was done. Went to the reception and heard that it was too late to do the turndown service. After a lengthy argument they sent somebody to do the townturn service.

After staying in the Centro area for a week we decided to move to Puerto Madero as it was more relaxed and felt safer at night. Alvear Icon Hotel was a fabulous choice. The rooms are spacious, bathroom beautiful and facilities excellent. The only negative for us is the Dress Code that states no shorts in the bar or restaurant areas - understandable in the evening but seems silly during the day when many visitors are relaxing on holiday. This meant we did not spend any time during the day in the hotel bars or restaurants; a nice afternoon cocktail after a day site seeing would have been on our schedule most days if this dress code wasn’t in place.

I loved the location of this hotel within walking distance of many great tourist spots and bars! The room and facilities were amazing. Some staff were really nice, some cold. Main problem: pretentiousness. Don’t tell me I can’t wear shorts in the hotel in 35 degree heat when there are women wearing next to nothing. Get out of the 1950s or whatever decade it is that you are in.

I am staying for my honeymoon at the hotel. We are still waiting to be checked in after 3,5 hours. The staff does not solve any issues for us, does not accommodate us in any other room and responds to all claims, you need to come tomorrow to talk to the manager. Zero decision making power neither politeness neither resolution. Very disappointing, we were hoping for a great experience and we are getting totally the opposite.

Dear Guest, We are extremely sorry our services were not up to your expectations. However, we wish to set the record straight on a few facts: 1) A room was available for you at the time you arrived at our establishment, except it was not exactly the kind of room you had requested, as it had a city view instead of a river view. Our mistake. 2) It was Sunday afternoon and our Front Desk Manager was gone for the day. However, after some delay (our mistake), our Duty Manager came to talk to you. 3) We invited you to have lunch on a complimentary basis while you waited for exactly the kind of room you wanted to be ready. 4) Our records show you entered the kind of room you demanded two and a half hours after you arrived. But we again wish to emphasize that the kind of room (city view) indicated in our reservation confirmation was ready from the time of your arrival to our establishment. Yours truly, Alvear Icon Hotel
