We all know Bulgari as a luxury brand, but did you know that they are active in the hotel industry as well? That is right, Bulgari already has 3 hotels and I was so excited to experience the Bulgari hotel in Milano. I had high expectations, but still was totally blown away by this property. Having stayed at many high end five star properties, this hotel was beyond words and I can’t say enough good things about this place.
First of all, the location is amazing. Right in the city center of Milan and within walking distance to the major attractions of beautiful Milan. Still you are in a private gem with all the luxury amenities one could wish for. Guests are treated like royalty here and nothing is asked for too much here. The personal approach is highly appreciated and one of the key factors of the Bulgari Milan.
Once I stepped in, I was greeted by the most accommodating staff who made me feel at ease right from the first second. The lobby kind of feels like a big living room with comfortable couches and an open fire place. I immediately noticed the sweet corner with complimentary sweets and hot chocolate. Be sure to have one yourself, I loved it 🙂
We arrived pretty early in the morning and first had breakfast before we went to our room. The Bulgari Milano has a 24hr breakfast which means one can have breakfast at any moment. We opted for the American breakfast. From the freshly squeezed juices to the pastries, I totally enjoyed every bite. Although every hotel offers breakfast obviously the products and ingredients they use here are of such a good quality that I actually was blown away and it set the tone for the next 48 hours…
After breakfast it was time to explore our room. I stayed in a corner room and again was very satisfied. The room had a great size. No standard furniture here, all items (and I litterly mean every item/product/…) is of such a high quality. I fell at home here which is unique. The room had a nice cozy sitting area with the most comfortable couch. The king sized bed was to die for. Oh and I have to mention that every day a new surprise will be waiting for you. For example, they brought fresh flowers in the afternoon, some (yummie!) pastries and when I needed anything, I just had to dial 0 and a few seconds later they were happy to bring it to the room. Bathroom is very luxurious featuring an oversized bath tub and a fantastic walk-in shower. There are plenty of luxury Bulgari toiletries offered. Another surprise was the wierook in the bathroom, never seen at any hotel and so nice to have!
One of the highlights of the Bulgari hotel Milano is the spa area. No words can describe how beautiful this place is. It is the perfect place to relax after a day of shopping in Milan. It was so quiet and peaceful… and the décor is unique. Candles, soft relaxing music and luxurious leather lounges made me feel in heaven. There’s an indoor pool, a Finnish sauna and steam room. The spa at the Bulgari Milan is one of the most luxurious spa’s I have experienced, anywhere. Be sure to check out the large outdoor Jacuzzi as well, I spent hours in there 🙂
Turn down service is provided every night. They offer complimentary anti oxidant thee to their guests which is the perfect way to start a comfortable night.
It is all about service here. The staff is among the most professional and accommodating I have ever experienced. As said before, after spending so many night at so many five star hotels, it is great to still be impressed by hotels like the Bulgari Milano. I can’t wait to stay at another Bulgari property and will definitely stay at this hotel again when I am in Milan. After having stayed for ‘only’ two night, the Bulgari Milano is my home away from home. The place to be for a luxurious getaway in Milan, I am in love…
