Dif­fer­ent Strokes

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

LON­DON The Bri­tish cap­i­tal’s five-star ho­tels are the grande dames of the hos­pi­tal­ity world—names that pop up in history books and nov­els. But at the Bul­gari Ho­tel in Knights­bridge, you’ll find a sleeker kind of lux­ury more rem­i­nis­cent of New York or Mi­lan. The more time you spend there, the less English it feels, with chic black-and-white bed­rooms, a vast subter­ranean swimming pool, a gym filled with hand­some per­sonal train­ers, a 70-seat cin­ema and a fab­u­lous Ital­ian res­tau­rant pop­u­lated by men with de­signer stub­ble and women with de­signer bags. But don’t worry—if you have the urge for some­thing quintessen­tially Bri­tish, Har­rods, Har­vey Ni­chols and Hyde Park are all a five-minute walk away. bul­gar­i­ho­tels.com
