I chose this hotel in Bergamo based on price and on a positive listing in one of my guidebooks. It is right on the corner of the Piazza Vecchia in the Citta Alta so I couldn’t have asked for a better location. The restaurant on the ground floor is also highly rated.
I was assigned a single room on the top level (Room #101) which was adequate but nothing great (the bathroom had all new fixtures, however). It had a king size bed so could be offered as a double, but it would be almost claustrophobic for two people. The weather in Bergamo was very warm and this little room had only one small window plus a table fan. The fan helped some but the room never cooled off, even at night. For the price I didn't expect air conditioning so that's not an implied criticism. I didn’t see any of the other rooms so I can’t judge whether the others were any larger or cooler, but I suspect that the ones on the same level (#102 and #103) were equally stifling in the hot weather. They might be fine in other seasons.
The hotel takes credit cards (not always the case) and the garden restaurant was delightful. A nice continental breakfast was included in the price.
