Alvear Icon in Puerto Madero is a classy busy hotel that is a nice if slightly isolated spot to use as a base for a few days in Buenos Aires. The staff are great, friendly and approachable, the room we had was fresh and modern and quiet and all the facilities are top notch. The breakfast is ok, if a bit limited for such a high class expensive hotel (no a la carte options, stale pastries) and the staff seemed to spend every spare minute moving the tables around

Located in Puerto Madero, almost brand new (2017), huge hotel with different towers.

You can find a warm swimming pool on the 19th floor with a spa and fitness center. In another tower a great restaurant (Kayla). Comfortable and big rooms for guests.

Good quality and quantity for breakfast.

I have spent good time here.

This hotel is new. Not as personable as the hotels we stayed at in Recoleta(Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt and Algodon Mansion). However, their breakfast is amazing. It was the best we had. And the dinner at the bar was ample too. We had a bad experience our fist evening in a restaurant near by - when the waiter insisted on a 15% tip. So it was easiest to stay at the hotel for a light meal without having to put up with that behaviour I have read in restaurant reviews. Glad we had that option here.
Their bar at the top has amazing views of the Mujer bridge in the evening.
For us, the Puerto Madero area is up and coming but more for the younger crowd. Good restaurants within walking distance - across the street is Osaka.
Rooms and bathrooms were huge and amazing.
My one complaint and con is that they only give 2 small bottles of water in the room - for our whole 2 night stay. And no complimentary tea or coffee making facilities. I wanted to use the swimming pool - but it looked like there needed to be maintenance on it. I really wanted to give this place 3.5 stars.

I was at the hotel only for one night on a business trip. The rooms are really big and very comfortable. The breakfast was a very nice buffet. I enjoyed the gym in the morning. The hotel is a nice neighborhood and it is very nice to go for a run outside too. I found the lunch just ok.
Overall positive feedback.

THe attractive modern luxurious design and the warm hospitality of the staff are the ingredients of beauty attributed to Alvear Icon in my title. I escpecially admired the marble and gold finish in the lobby and bathrooms. All staff were pleasant including the breakfast room waiters and the very helpful well informed concierge staff. I'm thankful to have stayed at a discounted conference rate but the hotel seems worth the regular high price .
