“Alba delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2007

Great location,beautiful room,and friendly hosts -I recommend the pick up from the airport as it could be difficult to find arriving at night. This is a great base for a peaceful stay in the old town [High Bergamo.] I even managed 3 days without a TV in the room !

This B & B is in a fantastic location just near the main square in the old town. The room is beautifully renovated with moden facilities yet has a sense of old Italian charm with high painted ceilings and lovely colourful tiles. The hospitality of the owners was fantastic, very warm and welcoming. We couldn't speak a work of Italian but the lady who served us breakfast chatted away anyway and made us feel comfortable and welcome. I highly recommend this B & B and would also suggest that you take advantage of the airport transfer as I think it would be very hard to find otherwise as all the streets look the same in the town. This is one of the cheapest I could find in the Bergamo area as things fill up quickly but in no way would I class it as a budget option. The value for money is excellent.

We visited Bergamo for 3 nights and were absolutely delighted with our large triple room. The bedroom had an original mosaic floor and a painted ceiling. The bedroom and the lovely shower room were immaculately clean. The B&B's position in the old town is great with restaurants bars and shops on the door step. A bit noisy at the weekend as it is such a popular place.
As our flight was not arriving until midnight we were delighted when Pierangela offered to pick us up for only 15 euros, a bargain. On our way back to the airport she took us to see her other B&B Ca'Rossa, which has great reviews.
Pierangela her husband and staff are excellent. The B&B is great value and friends have already booked on our recommendation. We will be back!!

We spent a lovely few days in the old town of Bergamo at "B&B Alba Chiara". It's an big old apartment with 3 separate bedrooms, all en suite.
Beautifully decorated with paintings in the ceilings etc. I guess you could rent the whole place if you're 6-9 people, otherwise you stay in one of the bedrooms (sleeps 2-3). You share kitchen and lounge. The owner/host is genuinally friendly!
Citta Alta is an medieval city, you walk through it in less than 30 mins. Nice viewing points from the surrounding walls.
Easy access from the airport by bus (Nr 1), going to the last stop or if you fancy a short trip on the "Funiculare" from the bottom of the old city a couple of stops before.
