“good location and good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The location is perfect - Bergamo Alta, and just 50 m from where you can park the car. Good restaurants nearby. Spacious room, with a very high ceiling, and a deal of personality - resulting from the combination of the old architecture with the modern design. The bathroom was comfortable and elegant as well. Well, not the cheapest perhaps, but that's about the location. I recommend it, also to a couple for a romantic weekend.

We love Bergamo Alta & The Gombit is in a perfect location.

Yes the hotel is expensive but i think it's worth it - our room was really spacious - beautifully designed - very comfortable & toasty warm & with two wonderful windows that let light in.

& unlike our first visit this time the bathroom was also comfortable. & the towels are lovely.

The housekeeping is impeccable. Some staff are friendly & some are reserved & I think less sure of their English.

My biggest gripe is that for the money no one offers any assistance with bags. Three staff watched us (a couple old enough to be their parents) struggle in out of the rain with our bags & no one came out from behind reception & helped. Poor form.

234 euros for an upgrade to a 304 euro room, sleeping on "ikea" pillows. Get real. A robbery. If i wanted to sleep on ikea stuff i'd stay at home for free or go to a 80 euro 2 star hotel. Can you believe that stuff? Nothing against ikea but design is something else. Get a life gombit hotel owners!

Cannot believe what i found in the closet, an ikea blanket in a 234 euro room, 300 us dollars for an ikea blanket. This kills everything else which might have been nice! Its the worst "design hotel killers" of all times, a made in bulgaria ikea blanket in a wannabe 4 star italian design hotel charging crazy rates.
Never again in my life. Pure robbery.
I wish there was a bar of soap to wash my hands, one star hotels have that!

This is a neat design hotel, housed in a restored old tower. Viewing from the outside, then stepping inside makes you wonder if you are actually stepping into the same structure. Really cool accents and design features (books hanging off walls, cutting edge chairs and furnishings in lobby, etc).

Nicely designed + well appointed rooms, really cool bathroom (check out the logo + torre icon on everything from the soaps to the standing sink), historical building, professional staff, excellent central location (right in the heart, and just a few steps from the beautiful square) = great choice in Bergamo.

This is our 2nd stay in Gombit, the first was a couple of years ago when the hotel had just opened. We booked two classic rooms and both were lovely, very well appointed with v nice bed, good linens, robes, mini bar free Wi-Fi and satellite TV. The hotel is a renovation of an old tower, right in the centre of Citta alta- steps away from the best restaurants and bars in Bergamo and a funicolare ride from San Vigilio. Couldn't recommend more highly. Best hotel by a country mile in Citta alta

This Hotel is in just the best situation in Bergamo Alta. It is minutes away from the funiculare, and therefore all public transport, and in the other direction, minutes away from the Piazza Vecchia. The rooms were immaculate, spacious, for 3 of us, and the shower in a well fitted-out bathroom, was just lovely and warm, with a huge shower-head. Slippers and dressing gown were a nice touch too.
The staff were welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast very tasty with good quality ham and cheeses, and wonderful breads, croissants, and cakes.
