“B&B Carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Pino and his wife offer an excellent budget-friendly B&B. The apartment is clean, comfortable, and well organized. There are two bedrooms in the apartment so that it is rather private. I received an excellent breakfast catered to my own taste. Pino and his wife are both honest and friendly people who are happy to help and offer travelers a place that is "home away from home." The apartment is also within a few minutes walk from shopping areas and coffee shops. I will be happy to return! Thank you for a great stay!

The room is big with a large and comfortable bed.
The shared bathroom is also big and clean with a shower and a bath tub.
The only negative thing Is the noise as the room give on the street, but that is totally bearable .
Pipo and Carmen are very nice and will take good care of you!

After a long day's travel to Bergamo with 2 small children on 4 different trains, the warm welcome to Bergamo from our friendly host, Pino, was exactly what we needed. The rooms and central location was great for a 1 night stop over in Bergamo, the only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights in April 2012. We found it to be relaxing and perfectly placed to venture round Bergamo and further afield. Very clean and comfy, with a warm reception from the owners. Wifi is available for guests to use. A good breakfast each morning will set you up for the day.

An excellent base from which to explore the delights of Bergamo. Great breakfast to start the day, and very friendly and helpful hosts. Everything in Bergamo is within walking distance, and the airport is only 10 minutes away. A highly recommended bed and breakfast.

Staying at this bed and breakfast is probably the best way to start your journey in Italy. It is owned by a very friendly Italian family. The location is in the center of town, ideal for those who want to explore Bergamo or are just passing through. The rooms are elegant and silent, perfect for a good night's sleep. The service is wonderful, as I was picked at the airport in Bergamo. No hassling for taking a taxi or bus and than scrambling to find the location. There are good restaurants nearby, and in the morning the breakfast will be served. The breakfast is delicious and is a perfect way to start the day!

All in all: excellent location, transportation service upon arrival, elegant and silent rooms, good restaurants nearby.

Right from the moment we arrived we knew we had selected the perfect Bed and Breakfast. Our hosts were warm and very welcoming. They were extremely helpful in making sure that our stay in their beautiful town was perfect. The location is very convenient we walked everywhere as well as peaceful. The accommodations sparkle with cleanliness, the room is a very good size and the bathroom is great. Along with all of this we had free parking.

We highly recommend B&B Carmen.
