Bulgari Hotel Milano
A fashionable yet discreet oasis
What it is
Buzzy and sleek but still intimate.
What it isn't
Chock-full of family-friendly features.
What we think
There’s something about Milan that makes you want to dress a little sharper, put on some big sunglasses and listen to your heels click on Italian marble. If you’re playing the part of a chic Milanese (or if you really are one), the Bulgari should be your pied-à-terre. Tucked away on a side street in artsy Brera, the 58-room hideaway is housed in a former 18th-century palazzo. But banish all thoughts of Old World opulence: Antonio Citterio’s interiors are contemporary and refined, with furniture from Flexform and B&B Italia and a subdued palette of black, cream and mocha. Locals frequent the buzzy Il Bar and its garden, a gloriously leafy setting for an aperitivo or post-dinner cocktail. The rooms are serene, residential and flooded with light, thanks to the oversize windows with views to the garden.
You're here because
You want a hotel that’s like a pair of designer sunglasses: sexy and stylish on the outside, but allowing you to retreat in privacy.
You slip into the carved stone tub for a hot bath, with the window flung open and the curtains blowing in the breeze, and a freshly mixed negroni perched on the table beside you.
