“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2007

The Executive is superb. A real gem of a medium-sized hotel, it serves great breakfasts and has well-furnished, spacious rooms with large beds.

It's about 20 minutes out of Bergamo by car, but makes up for that with the ample free parking, and friendly staff.

Ask for directions to L'Abbazia Restaurant (10 minutes walk) or Le Pelosetta (8 minutes by car) where the seafood is astonishingly good.

Bergamo itself with the Citta Alta, old town, is not to be missed and largely unspoilt by tourism or crowds. Don't miss the Baroque gilt roof of the enchanting Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in the centre.

Wander the the ancient cobbled streets and alleys or explore the rugged beauty of the Citta Aperta (a hill park with open space and some housing) and when you are hungry enough dine at the corner of the Piaza Vecchia in the truly wonderful, authentic Bergamasc restaurant "Il Sole".

These are just some tips on the Executive and Bergamo. Suffice to say that Bergamo is one of the best places to visit in the whole of Norhern Italy. We can't wait to go back there!

  • Liked — The breakfasts and the beds!
  • Disliked — The electricity pylon that spoils the view out of the rear bedroom windows to the hills beyond

Getting to the hotel was a problem. Our flight was delayed and we has problems getting a taxi from the arport. The journey cost 42 Euros because it was after midnight. The hotel is approx 20 minutes from the airport. Despite the late arrival the wecome was warm. The room was excellent and the hotel was very quiet.
Breakfast was fine and overall the stay was a great start to our Italian holiday.

Stayed at the end of our holiday and found everything to be as good as the comments on this site said. We had a car so the distance to Bergamo (and airport) was no problem. Although our room was at the front of the hotel, the traffic noise didn't disturb us. Room, breakfast and staff excellent - the hotel deserves to prosper. Be sure to visit the old part of Bergamo (on the hill), if you get the chance.

We spent two nights in this very clean, quiet and comfortable hotel. The rooms were excellent and furnished to a high quality. The reception staff seemed justifiably proud of the hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was very good and we felt the location was handy for visitors like ourselves who wanted to see bergamo but then have easy access to the motorway and airport-a car would be vital to reach this hotel.

  • Liked — incredibly clean
  • Disliked — no family rooms-we had two adjoining rooms but very cheap.

very convenient location close to Bergamo airport (we landed at midnight).
nice hotel, room OK. Nice decoration
Best part: breakfast. Very nice, good and complete. The best is the musical background with Nora Jones !
Unfortunately, room was in front of the road, and we could hear every car passing by. No way to have a good night sleep..
Too bad because it is a very bad point, ruining all the positive ones.
Anyway, nice choice when landing late
Nice welcome by the staff.

  • Liked — breakfast and musical background + location close to airport
  • Disliked — noise coming from the road
  • Tips/Secrets — ask for a room not overlooking the road

This is a very nice Hotel. You can tell they have taken the time to design and decorate this hotel.

The rooms are are very nice with mini-bar, TV, goods wardrobe space etc.

Could not get the heating to work though.

My only reservation about the Hotel was its location. Is was well out. You can take a bus (a five min walk) to the city. (20mins on the bus). But if you need to go to the airport as someone mentioned, you need to change bus in the city, so not ideal if you in a rush or have lots of bags.

Cabs from the city to the hotel was around 24 euros.
Can to airport 25 euros. Make sure you add this to the price of you hotel when you compare rates.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2006

We stayed here two nights to finished off our holiday touring round the North of Italy, as we were flying out of Bergamo Airport.

We had stayed in some real dumps, so it was great to arrive at a hotel, which was clean and of a very good standard. The breakfast choice was fantastic. We didn't have a car, so relied on the buses, which we found to be very frequent and easy to use. Although we did miss the last bus home on the Sat night, so had to get a taxi back from the town centre, it was about 20 euros.

It is two buses to the airport, but a fairly easy and straightforward trip to make. It took about 40 minutes door to door, as there was a bit of a wait when we changed buses.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and there are some lovely restaurants and shops in walking distance from the hotel.

Bergamo itself is nice, in particular the old town, but the new town has some fantastic shops. Lots of nice restaurants around too.
