So much of what the Bulgari brand stands for — elegant design, clean lines, precious materials — is incorporated into its first Bulgari Hotel in Milano. Black Zimbabwe granite adorn interiors while rich Burmese teak decks fan out into the garden. The luxurious design story continues in the hotel’s subterranean spa, which glows almost gold when warm light hits the yellow Vicenza stonework.
Bed and Bath
Warm monochromatic linens and supple black couches complement the bleached-oak paneling and floors in each room, while large standing mirrors and black four-poster beds are show pieces. In keeping with the hotel’s opulent design, garden-facing bathrooms are luxuriant, dressed in Navona travertine and outfitted with black granite bathtubs.
Bulgari’s il Ristorante and il Bar are two of the hotel’s greatest assets. It’s not just because Chef Andrea Ferrero’s risotto Milanese or veal filet rise to high art (although it helps), but also because the room in which guests enjoy them is itself a showstopper. Picture a large lenticular ceiling that hovers over an oval room awash in warm honey-colored wood, black leather and glass windows that let in ample natural light and expansive views of the garden. Work on your own glow in the spa, which has a cocoon-like, golden-tiled pool and a modern hammam.
In the Area
Hotel Bulgari occupies a piece of prime Milano real estate near some of the city’s most riveting cultural institutions, like La Scala opera house, Accademia di Brera, and the beautiful botanical gardens. Also in the area are two of Milano’s famous shopping streets, Via della Spiga and Via Montenapoleone, both brimming with big-name labels like Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Armani.
How to Get There
I find the rooms are generally small, but the location is great with its amazing secluded garden. Don't expect fast service though whilst you're having drinks or food there.
As you would expect it is a magnet for fashionistas.
The Sunday brunch is expensive but worth it, buffet style, an amazing choice of delicious Italian food and wines.
Four of us just visited the Bulgari Milano Spa. We were all so excited and looking forward to a day of luxury and pampering.
We all booked massages and planned to spend time before and after our massages in the spa.
Upon arrival at the Spa, we were greeted by a very friendly young woman, and a very sour middle aged man. She was very professional and kind. He was very unfriendly, almost rude and just a bad energy about him. It was quite unpleasant.
The swimming pool is beautiful, sparkling gold mosaic tiles, perfect temperature, very nice. The wet sauna and dry sauna were both clean, but also quite small. The outdoor jacuzzi was not hot, just slightly warmer than the pool.
We all booked our massages at the same time 330pm. But they called the first one of us at about 3pm, the second and third 315pm and I was last at about 320p.
My massage and my husbands deep tissue massage were both fantastic. We were both very satisfied and happy. Both of our masseuses were fabulous.
One of the woman in our group asked her masseuse if she could take a shower before. The masseuse replied sharply, ‘if you do it will take away from your time’. My friend told her our appoints were actually at 330p and it was only 315pm. She disagreed. My friend didn’t take a shower or go to the bathroom. She was quite uncomfortable during her massage.
If it weren’t for at least the three of us having very nice massages. We would have been quite disappointed with the spa.
When we think of Bulgari, we think jewels, opulence, class and luxury.
The only element of that spa which is like that is the swimming pool. Everything else was quite typical and boring.
The dressing rooms were also quite small and cramped. There was no dryer or anything to put a wet swimsuit in. The little refreshment bar, was quite sad and actually quite cheap looking with the meager little snacks and bruised fruit.
We were all hoping for it to be as exquisite as Bulgari Jewels,,, but it simply wasn’t.
Warm service, lovely contemporary rooms, inviting location that feels hidden in the midst of the city. A true 5-star experience. Really loved our stay. The best comparison I see is the Aman in Tokyo - both crisp, modern, extremely luxurious- though Hotel Bulgari is much friendlier. Very well done - we look forward staying when we next visit Milan!
Everything about this hotel is top class. Amazing location, beautiful rooms, fantastic service with great attention to detail. Best of all - all day breakfast which was beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Arrived to Milan for the first time super excited to visit this hotel. My friend and I had dinner and for the entire meal they kept forgetting she was allergic to nuts. The pasta here was actually awful. It was like someone poured a cup of lemon juice on it. The worst part was, I went home after eating here and made myself some pasta that was 10x anythig on the bulgari menu. For the unrefined service to the below average food, to the host that wore blue jeans in a "5-star environment".... this hotel really needs work.
