Bulgari Hotel, London5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Loved this hotel. From the doorman I felt at home. Everyone was super lovely and nothing was too much to ask no matter how ridiculous. To give you an example - my sister’s dress zipper got stuck and she called downstairs as she could not undo it. They have a delightful seamstress on site to help her out of that situation. Housekeeping was flawless. Bar and the bartenders were wonderful. No cocktail unavailable. There was the most amazing lady who worked in House Keeping and her son worked in the bar... she was just wonderful. A tiny flaw is that some of the clients at night were perhaps hmmm... looking for too much of a good time however what they do is there business but a shame to see it in the bar for other clientele. Room service again impeccable. The Spa... I have no words. Magical. I generally avoid hotel Spas but on one of the days had been walking a lot and was still feeling a little rough from the night before. So I thought would have a butchers. I found the most sensational pool I could have imagined in the heart of London a stones throw from Harvey Nichols and Harrods. The Greek lady who cut my hair was also superb. Well done to all the staff at the Bulgari London you have a fan!
It is difficult to write a short review of the Bulgari Hotel, given all the phenomenal moves made by its management. Led by the Front Office Manager Milan Sudar, his team succeeds again and again in satisfying all the requirements and, with the perfect feeling for pleasure, they have effectively managed to make the Bulgari Hotel "home away from home" for me. As someone who spends more than 50 days a year in London, I claim that the Bulgari Hotel is the best hotel in the city and I look forward to returning every time.
As someone who visits a lot of hotels both with work and pleasure, I have seen my share of properties, and they all start looking alike. But every now and again you find one that offers that little bit extra, that certain je ne sais quoi, that just leaves you gagging with joy. And that's what I found here at the Bulgari. Lets start at the entrance - the doormen were so nice, offering to help us with our bags (just one bag), with smiles and a very friendly manner. Then the reception staff couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome, asking about our journey there, what we were up to, what we wanted to drink/eat/see, just being friendly and sweet. Everywhere looking spotless I have to mention, all surfaces shining and shimmering, with lovely xmas decorations (it was just before xmas day). The room itself was gorgeous, very spacious and the bed, oh my, lets say I could sleep there forever. And the bathroom is huge, plus how many times do you get to shower with Bulgari products, lets be honest here? Obviously I should mention the breakfast as well, which was scrumptious, but the pièce de résistance was the pool, which has to be one of the largest in London. If I was in charge of giving stars, I would award them 10!!!
I went to London for my birthday a few weeks ago and decided to treat myself and stay at The Bulgari Hotel. Yes it is on the pricey side on all levels but I have to say that it was worth it for the few days I was there - not an every day thing but as a treat it's fine! The rooms were so lovely and comfortable as was the spacious bathroom. Housekeeping came twice a day and room was always immaculate! The rooms themselves are very quiet and you don't hear anything on the streets. The staff were very friendly and helpful on all levels. Rita at reception was truly lovely and polite and very helpful! The quality of service was 5 star and more. I had my zipper stuck one night on my dress and they sent me the hotel seamstress who amazing helped my in less than 2 seconds with all her kit! The hotel kindly sent me a small lovely cake on my birthday when I ordered breakfast which was very thoughtful. I booked a massage very last minute and they kindly accommodated me - Spa is out of the world and worth the experience. My only negative point would be their breakfast. It is a little weak and needs some work and a lot more options. The hotel bar was nice and buzzing on every night we went to have a drink - again on the pricey side so take it easy! I would def go back and stay there - will have to save a little money first!
The Bvlgari hotel is everything you expect. Stunning design and phenomenal customer service. I treated my mum and family to afternoon tea which was an incredible value for money. The teas were exotic, the sandwiches were perfect and the desserts were to die for. This is the perfect gift for anyone!
The bulgari is a lovely hotel set in central London. It is next door to Harrods and Harvey nicks a ad all the other high street brands!! Aswell as been a 2 min walk from Knights Bridge tube station. On appearances the hotel is flawless, with its smooth edges and straight lines. It's welcoming scent is to die for! With its high end furniture and classy decor, it make one wonder why they make it so dark inside! It is very individual, with its black granite bathrooms and key shaped room keys and doors that don't really look like doors. It's has a very masculine hotel feel, with every room been dark and it's dark colour schemes and mahogany wardrobes. The room is small( much like the majority of London hotel rooms) but the bed is big and comfortable (despite taking up all the room). The staff are all excellent and cannot do enough for you. The maid service is wonderful and they pay great attention to detail. The spa is very luxurious and the gym is good as far as hotel gyms go. The biggest let down for me was the breakfast, not long ago there would be plenty of five star hotels in London that included breakfast within their room rate- these days are long gone. If you're staying at The Bulgari- DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON BREAKFAST! For an English breakfast it cost £32, I have no idea what makes the breakfast so expensive as it was vile. I ordered eggs Benedict which was tiny and like slop and my partner ordered egg whites and turkey sausage, both tiny portions. If you hate eating and are on a strict diet....the. You may like it! All in all, I had a pleasant stay but I've had much better stats in London and won't be returning .
I just loved this hotel! It's location is amazing! Great restaurants in walking distance, Harrods just across the street, Hyde Park and Winterwonderland also across the street, it doesn't get any better! The rooms are modern and clean, nice design. The a la carte breakfast is good. The bar has a lively atmosphere in the evenings. I totally recommend it!!
Booked a table for threw on 31.12 and had great expectations after reading positive reviews. The disappointment hit from the start, tables were right by the front door (reception area), people/guests kept going pass us constantly, so I would not say it was relaxing. Waiter brought 1 tea pot for 3 people and when was asked for more tea but for 1 person, the same size teapot arrived, not sure if it was standard size, 1 for all. Pastry and sandwiches: for the price paid we were expecting them to be a little more sophisticated. Over all, won't come back again. On the positive side: beautiful Xmas tree.
After lunching at The Berkley and spending some time in London, I decided to visit The Bulgari with some friends and my husband on his birthday as he loves a Negroni cocktail and they advertise a special Negroni cocktail menu on their website. On arrival, we asked for the bar and were directed to The Rivea. I asked for the other bar (Il Bar as advertised on their website - see pics) and 3 members of staff collectively confirmed there is no such bar. I felt really very silly and assumed I'd made a mistake in my planning so decided to settle in The Rivea anyway rather than inconvenience our friends. When checking their website, it does indeed advertise Il Bar but I now realise that Il Bar must be nothing more than the physical bbar sitting in the centre of The Rivea which is listed as a separate entity. Unfortunately, the staff were equally clueless to this fact and had no knowledge of Il anything! We ordered our drinks and our table was then revisited by the waitress who advised that my drink wasn't available because their blender was broken. Really, in Knightsbridge and at £17 a pop for a cocktail, they couldn't source another blender from their own kitchen or a local store? Thankfully we'd asked for water which kept us going during the fairly long wait for our drinks. Despite nobody knowing of Il Bar, the Negroni experience did feature on the Rivea menu. The special Negroni is listed as "an immersive experience". This is creative writing at its best. Literally the ONLY choice you get when you "work with Il Bar's talented team to tailor the perfect serve" is whether you want a sweet or spiced vermouth. You get a little chat through the drink which is pretty much what you can read on the website and then watch them make it. No nibbles were provided until we had all finished our drinks and were about to leave. Then some olives and very bland crackers appeared with the offer of more drinks. This was supposed to top off a lovely day for a birthday but it really was woeful. Given the disappointment we decided to move to another bar so we didn't finish on such a low. From The American Bar at the Savoy to The Artesian at The Langham and everything in between, we have never had such a shoddy premium bar experience and we're very glad it was only the bar and not the restaurant or a room that we'd had the misfortune of experiencing. The Bar is of course very classy and undoubtedly a nice environment which appeared to tick all the boxes on arrival but finding the toilets in the very dimly lit maze of doors and corridors downstairs was like a gothic version of Alice in Wonderland. The treat of the amazing toiletries made it worth the hunt on arrival however. But with plenty of staff and not very many guests to serve there really weren't any mitigating circumstances for our succession of poor experiences in what must have been under an hours visit. The Bulgari has a lot of catching up to do to be comparable to it's competitors.
