outstanding. Friendly patron, very helpful.
restaurant in 5 minutes walk and more so in 15 minutes to old town Bergamo.
Difficult to find if one trust the GPS. Better way via old town Bergamo. Faster and less stress with narrow roads.

Our 3rd visit and it only gets better. Mario and Graziella are always on hand with smiling faces and ready to help in any way they can, and each guest is welcomed as a menber of their family.

The recent bar is a lovely addition and means that instead of guests from all over the world going directly to their rooms at 10.30pm as strangers, there is now the chance to make friends over a nightcap on the pretty terrace. This adds even more to the wonderful atmosphere that exists.
Breakfasts are also more substantial and varied than before.

We have stayed here 4 times now as have my family and the standard never drops. Mario and his wife treat you as though you are one of their own and it really is like staying with an Italian Family rather than at a hotel.

The hotel is close enough to Bergamo old town to walk in (10-15 mins) but Mario does do regular free shuttles in and back again but the walk is worth it even if you catch Mario on the way back to save your energy.

The hotel is very peaceful and is typical Italian in decor so don`t expect fancy designer bedrooms as you will not see them. What you will find is a perfect host and his wife who make you feel special every time you visit along with excellently priced wine and drinks at their new bar and beautiful views.

The outside terrrace is very good in the evening and encourages guests of all nationalities to have a chat with each other over a glass of the local wine ( the Lombardian white wine we had was excellent all over the region - only 12 Euros for a bottle in some restaurants) or chilled Prosecco.

I would like to say this hotel is not excellent as it would mean we could always be sure of a reservation, but it is hard to find anything bad to say about Mario and Graziella, their hotel or their service so I won`t, although I did see a flower on one of their bushes that wasn`t in full bloom. So maybe you would be better staying at a different hotel after all.

I've just returned from a long weekend at this wonderful hotel. It's located about a 15 minute walk outside Citta Alta, the Bergamo old town. The owner, Mario, was extremely welcoming, helpful and very friendly. We'd booked the upstairs suite which was a good size with a fantastic large terrace with views down into the valley and the surronding hills. As it was very warm breakfast was served on the covered terrace by the entrance, and it was perfectly adequate. Also, the price of drinks from the minibar was very reasonable, so we made the most of it while relaxing on the terrace in the hot sunshine. Contrary to other reviews, the suite did have tea and coffee making facilities in it.

Mario runs a shuttle down to the Citta Alta several times a day. It was such a lovely place that we chose to walk most of the time, though the 10.30pm shuttle was very handy, when we'd had a splendid evening in the Citta Alta. We got back and sat on the terrace looking at the stars and enjoying the tranquility. He also provides a transfer to/from the airport.

I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere so peaceful and it was a real wrench when we had to leave, but we will definitely be back.

This hotel was one of the highlights of an 8 week vacation, such a delightfull place with hosts that were so giving in all ways nothing was a problem--- drive you into town, to the restaurant or pick you up again they were just so obliging. The rooms are large comfortable and spotless,the breakfasts were also loverly. The whole area where the hotel is positioned is extremely beautifull and peacefull. We may go back to Italy just to stay here and again visit the the wonderfull Bergamo.

My daughter and I stayed in La Vallatta for the 2nd time in June 2012. It is a lovely hotel situated about a 15 minute walk from Bergamo Citta Alta, through beautiful scenery. The rooms are big and spotlessly clean. We booked a suite with a very large balcony, which was nice to sit out on after a day in town. While we were there the temperature ranged from 30c to 34c so the air-con was very much appreciated. Mario collected us from the airport and he and Graziella were perfect hosts, charming and eager to do everything to make our stay wonderful. Breakfast was varied and plentiful, we ate on the terrace each morning. Could not recommend La Valletta highly enough. Please go.....and you'll want to go back, as we do.

Room Tip: If you can choose a suite it's worth every euro!

hAfter staying two days in an over-rated, extremely unhelpful, expensive modern hotel right in Bergamo, we moved to La Valletta Ralais and found exactly what we were missing. The owners greeted us with such warmth and generosity, and truly wanted to make our stay exceptional...and they succeeded! First of all the setting is breathtaking, nestled in a verdant valley with distant church bells and far away villas. The room overlooked this valley and I can't begin to explain what it is like waking up to this view on a beautiful sunny morning. To give an example of how helpful Mario and Graziella were, we came in late one night and had forgotten to organize a pick up early in the morning for our departing flight from Milan. Mario started making calls for a driver late that night (11:30ish), and never once appeared to be put out by this inconvenience. About 5 calls later he found a driver for us and even negotiated a great rate. Beautiful breakfast, long winding walks through untouched forests, and the proximity to old town Bergamo make this an extraordinary place to stay. We will definitely be back!
