“Excellent, stylish and welcoming in a great city”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Everything good that others have said about this hotel and the staff is true. The famous Uta sent an email before we arrived and was on hand to welcome us, show us the room and generally make sure we got to see the best of the city. The room was extremely sylish, with really high-quality fittings and a big luxurious bathroom. The hotel is two minutes walk from a charming square where there are bars and restaurants, and in twenty minutes you can walk up the elegant cobbled streets to the Alta Citta.
Uta gave us great advice on where to go for dinner and to buy wine, and even had the business cards of both places in her desk so we knew where to go.
Breakfast was good, fine fresh fruit and a good selection of other tasty cereals, yoghurts, pastries, etc.
Bergamo is a super charming city. Even the dogs are elegant and look like they are having a grand and rather stylish time. One of the very few hotels that would encourage me to return just to stay there again.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a quiet street so all the rooms should be ok. Rooms at the back face away from the s...

A genuinely welcoming and relaxing boutique hotel, with classy contemporary rooms and a great line in breakfasts. With only 12 rooms the friendly service was great, be it booking us into restaurants, loaning a map of Milan, checking the airlines were running in the snow, or even tracking down a lost jumper and posting it back to the UK! The location was quiet but with restaurants and shops around the corner. It was a pleasant 15 minute walk from the funicular up to the Old Town, and similarly 15 mins from train station. A great place to spend a weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed.

We flew to Bergamo for a weekend in December. We had heard of Petronilla from friends who had been there before and of course we had read the reviews on trip advisor. Everything is true.
The staff is polite and helpful. They even prepared a special breakfast for us because our flight left really early in the morning. The rooms are clean,comfortable and the decorator combined modern furniture with clasic pieces. The locacation is perfect, right next to the pedestrian area.
Everything was excellent!!! Thank you for lovely weekend.

Within 10 minutes of booking I received a personal email from Uta welcoming to the Hotel and asking if I had any special needs. I informed her I was traveling down for a meeting and bringing my 11 year old daughter as a special treat ...so she could see Italy. Within minutes Uta responded back stating she picked out a special room that my daughter would love. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and showed up to an extremely clean and modern room. After a long day, we quickly went down to the small bar to get a drink and Uta sensing my daughter was hungry went to the kitchen and rounded up some quick snacks. A memorable experience and we will be back! Tip...try Cafe Donasti for the best Pizza and ambience

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. You get a warm welcome, the rooms are original and modern. Bathroom with nice shower. Perhaps ask a room at heigher level or backside, because at night it can be some noisy on the street in front. The breakfast is original with fresh fruit juice, fresh fruit, and realy a nice choice of ....nice things :-) We also arrived late from our restaurant at the hotel, and the person in the hotel served us still a nice drink at the bar with the smile !! So when I come back in Bergamo, I certainly will stay at this hotel ! And the location is perfect at the city centre.

Room Tip: At the back side or higher level, it can be noisy in the street in front.

This hotel looks nothing from the outside but certainly makes up for it inside. We only stayed here for 1 night - which makes me want to go back for longer to enjoy the experience all over again. The staff are so lovely and helpful - if you want to know where to go for a delicious dinner just ask at reception. We had spent 4 nights in Milan but the best meal we had by far was the meal in Bergamo, the fact that it was also the cheapest was an added bonus. This is a beautiful city - I would definitely recommend that you walk up the steep hill to the old city and enjoy the atmosphere and views. There are lovely restaurants and bars in the square for you to relax and indulge yourself with some wine or beer! Back to the hotel - the rooms are lovely, all mod cons at your fingertips. It is a very quiet hotel, we had a night cap in the garden which was lovely. Breakfast was delicious with a great selection of fresh fruits, yoghurts, cold meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, freshly ground coffee - what more could you possibly want? I would highly recommend this hotel - when I go back to Milan I would stay here the whole time and commute to Milan city to do the sightseeing stuff. Bergamo is far more beautiful - I can't wait to go back :-)

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms here - I'm sure every one of them is gorgeous!
