“Authentic Italian apartment 5 minutes from the old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

As said in previous reviews, the owner of this property could not be more helpful and genuine. Parking for the car was right next to the building and there is a lift to save you from carrying your luggage up the several flights of stairs. Cesare comes down to meet you when you press the buzzer, shows you around your room or flat, gives you a map with lots of details on it and is happy to recommend places to go/eat. There are several rooms and an apartment, which we stayed in.
The apartment itself is lovely - if you are looking for modern and sophisticated, don't come here. But if you want a spacious apartment which makes you feel as if you are a local, this is the place to stay. The decor is very authentic and it feels like a friend has loaned you their place for the weekend. Breakfast is waiting in the fridge - again, it is simple but adequate and although we chose not to take him up on the offer, the opportunity of boiled eggs in the morning was also given.

This property would have got a 5 star but for a couple things that could be a problem for some people. There is no air conditioning in the apartment, which would be fine with the cool nights, except that we stayed on a Saturday night and it was so loud with mopeds and cars, that we could not sleep with the windows open to let the cool air in, so had to rely on the fans. That made it a bit hot at night Not Cesare's fault but a problem for us and even worse had we been there during a heatwave. The kitchen supply was a bit limited if you did want to cook for 4 people, something that could be easily rectified.

Would any of this keep me from staying here again....no way. The fantastic owner, homely feel and amazing location (5 minutes to the funicular) more than made up for any issues outlined above.
Go and enjoy this beautiful city!

Ideally situated between the stylish New Bergamo and the romantic old Bergamo, Liberty B&B is just 5 minutes walk to either. On a leafy wide street, navigation to all the main transport and tourist sights couldn't be easier. The rooms are pretty and comfortable. Best of all is the owner, Cesare, who is the most helpful host we experienced in Italy. Not only was Cesare able to accommodate our touring bikes at the back of his premises but he was truly heroic when it came time for us to get our bikes packed in boxes and loaded on transport for Milpensa Airport.

Room Tip: A top floor room away from the main road.

We really enjoyed staying at this beautiful and clean place. It has a great location to visit all the sights. The owner is really nice and cares about all his guests. We really recommend staying there when you are in the nice city of Bergamo.

We had a spare night on the way up to the lakes, so decided to bypass Milan and spend the night in Bergamo. We chose B&B Liberty after checking Tripadvisor, and it was a memorable experience for, all the right reasons.

Cesare, the host, is a gem. We are normally wary of ‘character’ hosts, but Cesare is charm personified: helpful, intuitive to the needs of his guests, and full of bright energy. Talking to him helped to flesh out our tourist-eye view of Bergamo, with living anecdotes and a real sense of what it is to be young and aware in a rich, conservative North-Italian town.

The apartment was a treat. Bright and airy, high ceilinged and belle-epoque in architecture and feel, with huge windows looking out towards the Upper Town. Tastefully decorated, with a big, comfortable bed, small, but thoughtfully put together bathroom (with a wonderful power-shower). There was also milk, cereal and other condiments provided for free, and the kitchen had a homely feel.
We were out and it was hot, so we called Cesare to request a fan for the bedroom. When we came back ,we found apartment peopled with fans of all shape and description, including two big, new fans pointing at the bed – very funny and very sweet!

The location is also perfect – in the more livable lower town, less than five minutes walking from the stately city centre, with it’s fascinating mix of Fascist era monoliths and Baroque churches – and also right next to the charming old funicular to the Upper Town.
By far the best place we have yet stayed on our trip, we look forward to the next visit!

I've been before and I'll be there again. A lovely quaint relaxing place to stay. A nice place to drop your bags and chill out before hitting the town. The host Cesare is more than helpful with any questions you may have. Bergamo is an unbelievable City of two halves. The old atop a hill and the new at the foot. Loads to see in both halves. Free tapas (as much as you can eat) as long as you have at least one drink can be found in several bars. Try the one next to the Mercure Hotel.
Cheers Cesare - see you again. Bill & Sue

Liberty B&B is situated in the perfect location to explore Bergamo, a lovely Italian city with the historic Citta Alta, vibrant lower city and lovely walks available at your doorstep. We were in the 2 bedroom apartment, and Cesare was the perfect host, providing us with wonderful sightseeing information and restaurant recommendations. Do not expect luxury, but instead, and in my opinion the true travel experience, expect to feel as if you lived in a nice historic, Italian flat, and met a wonderful new friend on your arrival. What could be better?
