Roman jewelry house Bulgari has opened a new hotel amid Paris’s Golden Triangle, featuring a penthouse that costs more than $39,000 per night.
The hotel, which is just moments from the Arc de Triomphe, was designed to bring a hint of ornate Italian luxury to the fashion capital – blending local history and tradition with downright glamour.
The Bulgari Hotel Paris is the seventh (and newest) hotel to open under the designer’s name amid the prestigious Avenue George V. This new landmark is one of the best Paris hotels and one of the hottest hangouts in Europe – but it offers more than just a place to rest your head.
The penthouse suite (with a price tag that starts at €35,000/more than $39,000) spans two floors and comes with a private rooftop garden. Views of The Eiffel Tower come as standard, naturally.
Beyond its exterior assets, however, the penthouse is a trove of modern decorating ideas that deserve replication far beyond the 8th arrondissement.
Decor highlights include the modernized chandelier that crowns the dining space and gives a new meaning to the City of Light. However, perhaps the pièce de résistance of the suite is the monochromatic marble bathroom that has reset the bar for en-suites worldwide. This is a Bulgari bathroom, after all.
Meanwhile, the living room exhibits a neutral palette that allows the colors of Paris’s streets to make a statement in the room – while the art books add vibrant pockets of color to the space.
Beyond the penthouse, the hotel has a spa, a black lacquered bar, and a Bulgari boutique on the ground floor.
‘Following the recent opening of the flagship Bulgari store on Place Vendôme, it is a real honor for us to have this second opportunity to bring the best of Italian design, lifestyle, culture, and luxury hospitality to the heart of Paris,’ says the Bulgari CEO, Jean-Christophe Babin.
Aptly positioned amid the capital’s historic home of luxury, the Bulgari Hotel Paris offers 76 fashionable rooms and suites designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel (opens in new tab) – a favorite of the label. The Milan-based studio collaborated with architects Valode & Pistre on the renovation of the façade and the building’s construction.
Bulgari, with all its timeless glamour and magnificent Italian jewelry heritage it taking over the City of Love. And it’s reshaping interior design trends in the process.
The Bulgari Hotel Paris (opens in new tab) is located at 30 Av. George V, 75008 Paris, France. Rooms start at a nightly rate of €1,400/approximately $1600.
