Situated along the banks of the Liangma River and right in the heart of Beijing’s embassy territory, the Bulgari Hotel Beijing has effectively used bamboo and wooden partitions to create a retreat in the middle of this sprawling metropolis. Take the elevator up to the rooms and be greeted by stunning views over the river and the impressive skyline of cosmopolitan Beijing.
If the hotel’s beautifully designed interiors (by Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel) excite your senses, then continue your artistic appreciation next door at the adjoining museum, or venture out to experience some of the eclectic art Beijing has to offer in nearby neighborhoods.

As you meander down corridors, nostrils thick with the scent of fine Italian leather, find yourself drawn to the hotel restaurant and bar where aromas of fresh and impassioned Italian dishes will be taking over as principal character. Aptly named, ‘Il Ristorante’, this one and only restaurant on site is set to tantalize taste buds with a menu delicately put together by Italian three-Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito. Dishes focus on simplistic, yet wholly flavorful Italian cuisine. Enjoy this culinary experience comfortably seated in large brown-leathered booths, underneath contemporary and stylish chandeliers.
Continue this tasteful Italian encounter with the Bulgari brand by heading over to ‘Il Bar’, and appreciate the signature ‘Aperitivo’ made by mixologist Darius. Or on the other hand, if what you’re after is more of a quiet tipple, then take pleasure in an exquisite cocktail or digestif from the very comfort of your own suite, with a fully stocked complimentary bar.
