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
My wife and I called into the bar for evening cocktails. The Hotel is very chilled but not reserved and decor is super modern. The staff were very friendly and professional, with the Maitre D' showing how it's done. Bar staff were fun, knowledgeable and very slick. Aperitivo and snacks were every bit as nice as you would expect. Will be back.
It is so great to return to the Bulgari Hotel in Milan. It is difficult to choose the single favorite part of my stay- the sumptuous food; the kind, thoughtful staff; and the beautifully appointed rooms all combined to make a truly remarkable experience. I look forward to returning soon.
We recently stayed here for a one night stopover in Milan and I wish we could have stayed longer! Excellent location within walking distance of major sights as well as all the best shops. The room was larger than expected-we booked a basic room and were pleasantly surprised by the size. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom was large with a separate tub and shower. The bar is a fabulous place to see and be seen and the concierge makes everyone feel like a VIP-excellent restaurant recommendations and don’t hesitate to ask an other cities bc he has the 411 on where to go pretty much everywhere in Europe! Everything about our stay was excellent; the staff was completely first class and the location is discreet enough to avoid any paparazzi (should this be a concern for you!) Hope to be back soon!
