“1 night stay in October”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2014

Stayed one night as a single traveler.
Great position for the railway and bus station. Just a small walk.
Alberto will happily to drive you to the airport for 5 euros and you can leave your luggage in their care, if you have a late flight.
The WiFi was excellent and I had the best TV selection compared to the other 2 hotels I used during this trip,
The lower town was great. Clean modern and interesting. The upper town in the mountain citadel
was absolutely fantastic. You can walk to the vernacular in about 20 minutes.
Everything was very clean and breakfast included some of Alberto's home made apple pie.
A lovely warm Italian family with a big welcoming big kitchen with plenty to offer the hungry visitor.
I enjoyed immensely the drive to the airport, excellent Italian driving. We laughed all the way !
My short stay added to my holiday. Molto bene

We stayed here for one night only to catch up an early flight. The place is very close to the train station; you can walk to midtown (a beautiful pedestrian zone), as well as to the railway station. The house is very clean and quite; our room (with private bathroom) was comfortable; not traffic/noise from outside. The room had a TV, water boiler (w/coffee and the), a PC; the wifi works perfectly well. We didn’t try the breakfast because we had to leave at 5:45 am. Still, the owner (Alberto) prepared some coffee for us and gave us some fruit for our trip. We also used his service to the airport. Everything was perfect and, if we ever get back to Bergamo, we will stay at the Holiday II Girasole.

Ivonne and Alberto are extremely friendly and care for their guests. English works, but they are "students" as they said themselves. House is at a oneway street with rooms on first floor. Not much noise from traffic and we had windows open all night as it was 28 C in Bergamo.

Rooms are spacious, our had TV set, water boiler (Coffee & the), PC and WiFi free of charge. The breakfast room is available 24 hours if you want to make a own meal and there are always fruit available. Breakfast was nice with the couple serving and making Cappucinos. Normal standard, fresh bred, ham, tomatos, fruit, yoghurt etc etc

Free locked parking!

We stayed for 2 nights and the midtown is only 5 minutes walk away, airport only 10 minutes drive.

The owner was rude and denied us breakfast because we were leaving early. The strange thing is that she had already offered breakfast for even earlier hour but then suddenly decided the opposite. I believe that when one stays in Bed & Breakfast facility the standard is to receive packed food if the earlier departure is announced beforehand.
But for the other travelers it may be more important that the rooms are on the ground floor and there is no air condition, so they have to leave the windows open in the night in summertime. And the region does not seem safe. It is near the station and, moreover, on the inner side of the door hangs a note that the guests “mustn’t” open the door of the B&B to anybody ringing.
On the other hand, the room and the bathroom were ok – basic, but clean, no complains.
I wouldn’t stay there again.

Our work is very much loved by us , and many guests have complimented this

In my hotel you will always be greeted with a smile , if you keep the respect to staff
Some guests have thought That can mistreat paying the staff
If you are rude you will be treated to rude , as this person
1 ) This guest by email I had asked to have the breakfast at 5 am and when to he arrived , the manager had Told him where he could find the breakfast
but he very arrogantly asked after breakfast to take away
It was impossible to do Because He had to formless before.
2 ) There is a cartel on the door '' The guests musn't open the door to anybody When the managers arent there . '' The managers must have full control of who Enters the hotel this is only for safety for all guest .
3 ) In the month of April in Bergamo there are 15/20 degrees , there is no need for air condizionatan
I'm happy for our good work we have little to guests like this

We were very happy to stay in this small hotel. We stayed in a room with 4 beds and a shared bathroom. It was clean, the atmosphere was relaxed, owners were very helpful and nice to our children. It was close to the town centre and railway station. We had a very good time!

Our stay at this awesome B&B could not have been better. From the great pickup service late at night, to the expansive breakfasts and great room. Nothing however could surpass the fantastic service of Alfonso and his family, truly amazing. We honestly arrived as guests and left as friends. Bergamo itself is a great area, if using a cheap flight into the airport, it is nicer to stay here, visit Milan and Lake Como by train and enjoy the upper city of Bergamo. Great place for a true Italian cultural getaway.
