“Excellent stay in Bergamo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2010

Charming B&B with spacious, beautiful and romantic room in the middle of Bergamos old town, Città Alta. The owners were very helpful and made delicous breakfast. We are looking forward to next time in Bergamo and B&B Alba!

We just returned from an incredible vist to Italy. One of the more memorable stays was in Bergamo, at the B&B Alba Chiara. It's a quaint/charming Bed & Breakfast in the upper city. The room was spacious as we were traveling with our two adult children. The owners are a delightful couple, Pierangela and Alfonso. Pierangela speaks excellent English and was very helpful with any questions we had, while Alfonso creates the most beautiful and delicious Italian breakfasts. The B&B is right in the middle of town overlooking a main street, with shops all around. We took Pierangela's recommendations for good food, and were not disappointed. One excellent recommendation was Columbina's- a modest walk from our room- the food and service were outstanding. We ate on the patio overlooking the city lights of the lower city. We highly recommend B&B Alba, and will stay the next time we visit Bergamo.

Owners very helpful and informative.

Thank you again for another pleasant stay.

Overnight stay.
Great room, full of charm and character. The most comfortable bed I've slept in for a long time.
Lovely breakfast. Accomodating host.
We wish we could have stayed longer.

We travelled with a 14-month old baby at the tailend of our 17-day holiday in Europe and the staff made us feel so at home and made special concessions for a fussy baby (thank you for this, Alfonso) that we can only dream about asking in other accommodation. We felt very at home here. Alfonso even gave us tips on making the perfect cup of coffee : )

Our stay at the B&B Alba was simply a dream. Alfonso is an artist which can be seen in the beautiful and individually designed rooms. He prepared us a wonderful aranged breakfast and his wife Pierangela gave us helpful information about the city.
We would always come back to this place and can recommend it to everybody.
