Bulgari Hotel Milan

A fashionable boutique hotel in Milan
When historic Italian jeweler Bulgari expanded into hospitality in 2004, it chose Milan as of the city to behold its vision for a five-story boutique hotel, where under a clean, black-and-white marble facade with black granite eaves and dyed oak frames, privacy is golden and opulence is at every turn.

Crowned by a private 43,000-square-foot terraced garden — a rare commodity in downtown — Bulgari Hotel Milan is tucked away on a private cul-de-sac steps from Via Montenapoleone’s luxury shopping quarters. It is far from sleepy, though — fashionable patrons continue to populate the buzzy bar and restaurant.

For the hotel’s 10th anniversary, Italian architect and design team Citterio-Viel and Partners renovated all aesthetic aspects of the luxury hotel, from facade to foundation. Clad in rich natural materials, the contemporary interiors play to the strengths of the made-in-Italy design and craftsmanship.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The subterranean Bulgari Hotel Spa is a lavish place to restore your equilibrium while staying in busy Milan. The main hall's rectangular swimming pool is tiled in gold and emerald Vicenza mosaics.
  • Nearby, you’ll encounter a new sauna and Turkish bath wrapped in green-tinted glass panes and furnished with Aphyon stone bench seats. An open-air lounge area has a four-person Jacuzzi and an intimate yoga pavilion.
  • The fitness center is lit by diffused, paneled lighting and boasts stylish, sleek Technogym and Citterio cardio and strength machines, such as a Kinesis rack, treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes, wellness tools and weights.
Things to Know
  • Favorite spa treatments include the La Mer Bulgari 80-minute facial, the four-hand massage administered by two therapists, and an 80-minute Balinese hot stone massage that includes a welcoming foot ritual and a warm oil massage.
  • In five private rooms (including a couples’ suite with its own sauna), modern treatments use beauty products from La Mer, organic brand Amala and a men’s line from Sothys.
  • Try the legendary Bulgari Cocktail in The Dom Pérignon Lounge & Raw Bar, which features gin, aperol as well as fresh orange, pineapple and lime juices.
The Rooms
  • The 58 rooms are rendered in black Zimbabwe marble, Burmese teak and graphite-dyed, bleached oak, which all complement sleek new furniture from Antonio Citterio and B&B Italia.
  • Cream-colored linen wallpaper balances luxurious drapes by Enzo degli Angiuoni and rugs by Altai.
  • Superior, Deluxe and Premium accommodations all come with bathrooms with black granite tubs and white Navona travertine basins and showers.
  • Deluxe and Premium rooms have walk-in closets plus garden or courtyard views. Two Premium Suites provide garden vistas from their 645-square-foot terraces.
  • The private top floor is where you’ll find the fine Bulgari Suite, which has a 969-square-foot, wrap-around terrace, a living room with a Brera stone fireplace, a library and a bathtub carved from a single block of Turkish Bihara stone.
The Restaurants
  • At Il Ristorante, Neapolitan chef Roberto Di Pinto reinterprets traditional Italian staples such as the popular spaghetti al pomodoro with piennolo tomatoes from Vesuvius, goat cheese and lemon peel.
  • The space itself, as expected, is sleek and stunning. The restaurant's convex ceiling arches over a black resin terrace with elegant outdoor seating, abutting the rectangular garden — a monastery vegetable patch in its former incarnation that now blossoms with horse chestnut, white wisteria, camellias and magnolias.
  • The Dom Pérignon Lounge & Raw Bar hosts up to 50 guests for aperitivo (a pre-meal drink and snack that’s a popular practice in Italy) and dinner, with champagnes and a raw menu.
  • Aperitivo can be taken at the bar or the lobby lounge anchored by a 15-ton, black Zimbabwe marble fireplace. Spirits, wines, herbal teas and infusions complement a small bar menu ranging from salads to hamburgers.
