“very hip bar/garden area”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We didn't stay here but decided to wander over to the Bulgari Hotel the night we arrived in Milan to have a drink and something to eat in the bar/garden area. It was a Wednesday evening and the weather was beautiful. We arrived around 8pm and asked if we could get a table in the garden for dinner, but all tables were already reserved. The bar was also extremely busy but a table was found for us after 5 mins or so. We could have got a table at the restaurant which is situated behind the bar but we wanted to be at the front so we could look out on to the garden. Cocktails are around 20 euros each but as we were planning on only having a couple each it didn't seem too bad. The nibbles they bring with drinks were lovely - mozzarella balls, bread, vegetable sticks & dips, olives; canapes then followed. We really enjoyed our drinks and snacks at the Bulgari and recommend you drop by either before dinner or for dinner (you can sit in the bar/garden area and order off restaurant menu too). My only complaint is that service was achingly slow. Our table was in a corner and we must have tried for over half an hour to get the attention of a waiter to order more drinks and some food. But I suspect that if we had been sitting in a more prominent position we could have got someones attention earlier.

Bulgari succeeds to create stylish obsessions even in hotel industry. Minimal decoration, great attention in details and diversity , a big , very big garden framed from a bar restaurant which is day and night the hot spot of Milan. People visit the place to eat , talk, drink , spend time as businessmen, visitors, or habitants , it looks like a fashion show or a party. It looks like an expensive jewelry of Bulgary collection.

I have stayed at the Bulgari for work before. So i knew it was a good hotel. Everything you have read in other reviews are right - food is good, garden is amazing, rooms are very comfortable. But this time I spent three days there at the end of an Italian vacation - so I got to experience the hotels full product offering. And all I can say was what a great experience! I was there with my wife and daughter and nothing was too hard. Example - they cooked meals not on the menu for our daughter every evening, they went to a restaurant we wanted to eat at to get a menu for us (as it wasnt avaliable online). Its little things like that make the difference between a good hotel and an excellent one.

Elegant, small and perfectly located. Excellent service at all levels, from the car parking to the restaurant bar.....the garden is the best place for outdoor drinks or meals in Milan.

High Tea is probably not the best way to discover the beautiful Bulgari hotel in Milan. But I was there for a birthday function. While we had a great time, there was a very noisy table close to us of wannabe celebrities (a la Big brother etc) so after asking the waiters accepted to let us move. The food is served in bento box style, and whilst very tasty, it looked a bit odd. I went to brunch a couple of times, and that was ab-so-lu-te-ly amazing.

“If Milan is considered to be one of the world’s most fashionable cities then this should be considered one of its most fashionable hotels. I loved the minimalist yet oh-so-comfy rooms. Think king size beds and sumptuously sleek bathrooms. The clientele is just as chic and the best part of it all is you are mere steps away from some of the best fashion and design boutiques.”

The Bulgari raised the bar on luxury hotel. The hotel offers many nice touches--afternoon snack, evening tea and chocolates, candy bar in the lobby. It also enables guest to enjoy privacy--in-room breakfast is highly encouraged and the food was amazing. On the other, if you want to socialise, the lobby area and the bar & restaurant is very warm and welcoming.

The team working there are extremely friendly and on top of things. The gym is great with state-of-the-art equipment. The rooms could use a bit of touch up though, but over all the bed is very comfortable and the garden view is very very tranquil.

I was also very impressed with the team's proactive approach in managing awkward situation. My spa therapist showed up 30 mins late for the appointment and the spa manager immediately offered her apologies when at check out time and offered a discount to both my friend and I--I didn't even have to ask! Pool was a bit small though.

I will definitely return.
