We know that all eyes will be on London for the Summer 2012 Olympics but we'll be keeping our well-trained hotel geek eyes on the London Hotel scene all year long as a deluge of hotels are expected to open. And of course, most of these hotels are opening just in time for the Olympics. Like the Bulgari London.

When we last checked in on the hotel, we had heard of a Spring 2012 opening date. But now, according to an article last month on the Business Traveller site, the 85-room luxury hotel with residences attached will open in April.

Bulgari's chief executive, Francesco Trapani, has said the hotel will feature a mix of marbles, woods and precious materials along with Italian furniture and custom-made textiles. Silver will also be a major theme running throughout the hotel as an homage to Bulgari's silversmith origins. And of course, you know that there will be Bulgari toiletries in the bath!

The hotel will also have seven Bulgari ultra-suites, a restaurant and bar, a ballroom, a private cinema, and of course a Bulgari spa, fitness center and pool. This will mark the third Bulgari hotel to open (the first two are in Milan and Bali).

So what will it cost to stay here? As we presumed back in June, will be steeeeeeeep. Business Traveller reports that Trapani has said the hotel rates will be on par with three or four of the most expensive hotels in London. We would expect to see nothing available for less than $700USD a night. Sigh.
