Located in Knightsbridge on the edge of Hyde Park, London’s Bulgari Hotel is both a haven of calm in the centre of the city and yet under a minute’s walk from such landmarks as Harrod’s department store. This is London’s most prestigious neighbourhood, and also one of its most liveable, with the full, appealing expanse of Hyde Park stretching out to its north.

Since opening in 2012 the Bulgari has set new standards among the luxury hotels of the British capital. Elegant contemporary architecture and Bulgari’s legendary flair for design describe the building. The sense of volume, the love of linearity, along with the refinement of motifs that recall the art and architecture of Bulgaris Greek and Roman roots are iconic features of the brands creations and also visible in the hotels architecture.

The refined interiors, featuring a selection of furnishings and textiles made exclusively for Bulgari, were designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, whose assured take on contemporary elegance  has already made Bulgari’s properties in Milan and Bali two of the most desirable and admired in the world. All these are matched by class-leading quality of service.

Do not miss “Il Bar” its very popular bar with visitors and Knightsbridge residents alike as a place for drinks and light food throughout the day; the early evening aperitivo; cocktails or after dinner drinks and in the summer outside tables along Knightsbridge Green, provide a perfect space to experience la Dolce Vita London style.

The cool glamour of Il Bar is concentrated around the central hammered metal bar, a unique and arresting piece of functional sculpture in white metal created by Italian artisans in honour of the hammered finish that used to distinguish the exquisite silverware of Sortirio Bulgari.  And later you can enjoy dinner at Alain Ducasse Rivea London that provides an intimate space for a bespoke experience.
