Bulgari Hotel Paris

An understated beauty on the Right Bank

Sitting unassumingly in the heart of the Golden Triangle, bordered by three of Paris’ most iconic streets — Avenue George V, the Champs-Élysées and Avenue Montaigne — the new Bulgari Hotel Paris is a contemporary take on the city’s palace hotels.

Two-story windows nod to Italian Renaissance architecture, while the minimalist-chic décor and neutral color palette of cognac and smoke gray mimic the Roman jeweler’s other properties, located everywhere from Milan to Bali to Beijing. The 11-story hotel melds Italian craftsmanship with artisan French touches, the result of a collaboration between Milan-based architectural studio Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and French architectural firm Valode & Pistre.

Most of the 76 rooms feature a balcony overlooking Avenue George V or private loggia facing the internal patio and garden, with in-room amenities like travel trunks opening up as minibars (even the coffeemakers are trimmed in leather), marble bathrooms with Roman showers and private hammams and 24-hour butler service for guests staying in suites.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The top two floors of the hotel form the 10,700-square-foot Penthouse, which is connected by a centerpiece spiral wooden staircase and crowned with an expansive rooftop terrace and garden showing off 360-degree views of the city’s landmarks, like the Eiffel Tower and Sacré-Cœur.
  • Heralded chef Niko Romito designed the menu at the 26-table, Italian fine dining eatery, Il Ristorante, tucked away in the hotel’s verdant private garden.
  • The subterranean spa extends across two levels and is outfitted in Vicenza stone from northern Italy’s Veneto region and Burmese teak. The showstopper, though, is the mosaic-lined pool glimmering with gold.
  • While the exterior looks modern and minimalist, the interior showcases striking, sleek design with marble, silk wallcoverings, granite and glossy eucalyptus wood. Take note of the thoughtfully considered details, like the leather-trimmed front desks, the backlit bar made of ivory onyx glowing amid the black granite floors, and the penthouse bathroom covered in Arabescato marble.
  • The Bulgari Bar hosts both afternoon tea with traditional Italian treats like cannolo, as well as the late-afternoon Italian ritual of aperitivo with focacce and antipasti and wine and cocktails.
