This hotel was our 'port in a storm' when our booked hotel lost our reservation. We were thankful for the room, and for the platter of meats, cheeses, and bread that they served us late at night. We were told that the hotel is best known for its restaurant. However, in our three-week trip, this was the most minimal breakfast... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for the compliments about the location. Bergamo is beautiful and our hotel, as you could see, is perfectly positioned. We cannot understand what you mean for "shambles" about breakfast. However, we are sorry you didn't like it. We hope to see you again; next time we are sure you will write on Tripadvisor about a great breakfast!... More

Stayed at this hotel in the "citta alta" for 1 night in September. Very nice view from our room on the first floor. No lift so hard carrying large suitcases upstairs. Within easy walking distance to the old city and close to funicular to San Vigilio which has a beautiful view of Bergamo. Unfortunately breakfast was virtually non-existent. Cereal, orange... More

First, be prepared for a heart-pounding ride to the hotel winding through narrow, cobblestone streets up to the hotel, dodging pedestrians and squeezing past cars going in the opposite direction. It is NOT easy to navigate the Citte Alta! But once we arrived we were grateful for the free on-site parking and with such a convenient location, we were grateful... More

Dear Guest, thanks for your stay in our hotel. We are sorry that you did not choose our restaurant, in which you could taste best typical and Mediterranean cuisine. We think that next time, if you will choose our restaurant, your experience will be much better! Give us a chance! We hope to see you again. Best regards Albergo Ristorante... More

Sentrally located just outside the old city, and with the funicular to the top just outside the hotel. We stayed in room 16, with a nice view over the valley. Old fashioned rooms, but clean and spacious though. No elevator, you have to use the stairs. Nice area outside, we had both dinner and breakfast outdoors. The dinner was very... More

This hotel's main asset is its location, right outside the old town (città alta). The rest of the offer is quite random, depending on which room you end up getting. When we arrived, we were given what is probably the worst room in the hotel (#12), with a insanity-inducing bathroom (no window, weak yellowish lighting, 70s decor and loud fan).... More

Excellent location, friendly staff nice room in 1980's style with a stunning view over the new town. Be prepared to be woken up by the church bells at 7 am. A plus is the free parking space just outside the hotel.

Il Gourmet is in a great location, very close to the old town area (and a scenic walk to get there), with the extra bonus of free parking. Main downside is that it is right next to the funicular station and a well-traveled road, so a bit noisy at night. We were lugging a lot of suitcases, as this was... More

This is a wonderful hotel with plenty of character and located in a great spot. Parking off the street is a bonus and the staff are helpful. It's like staying in a hotel from a bygone era with very spacious rooms and bathroom. The view from our bedroom window over the Lombardy district was wonderful. The breakfast was quite good... More

Most of the hotels in the old part of Bergamo are fairly pricy. Not this one. Great location, functionally efficient and friendly is what you can expect from Hotel Il Gormet. Being a short walk to the centre of the old town is a real advantage and they have free parking, what a find.
