“Take A Torch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2008

Obviously a lot of money has been spent on this place - expensive kitchen, lift etc but the bathroom was odd - horrible plastic spa bath shower effort which spoilt the eco friendly style of the hotel and the room was so poorly lit that we could barely see to read - there were also only one pillow each and the bed was very hard. The first night was valentines night and we had a special meal which was four courses with wine for 40 euros which was good value and the food was great but the second night we had the ordinary food and it was plain and unappetising and mass produced and breakfast was such a non-event that we did not bother the second day. The staff were not friendly and we not made to feel welcome - everyone else there was italian and we were definitely made to feel like outsiders which was a pity as we do try to speak Italian and love Italy and we were on our honeymoon. The location was quite good and Bergamo is an attractive town and it was quite cheap but we will not be returning and it was the low point of what was otherwise a good honeymoon.

Very intersting hotel where a great deal of money has been spent on the bedrooms and bathrooms and a huge kitchen with lots of expensive equipment which sadly does not reflect the food. Very unfriendly staff. Probably one of the worst meals we have experienced in Italy.

Stayed September 2007

This was the third time we stayed here - the other twice was great and so we were expecting more of the same - nice room, great food and slightly disappointing breakfast. We were a party of four - parents and 2 adult young - we had booked 2 rooms by email in February and received email confirmation (that included the names of the rooms we had booked) - we also emailed 3 days before arrival to say that we would be 5 for dinner and received confirmation so imagine our surprise on arrival to be told that there was no booking! This can happen anywhere, we all make mistakes, but there was no apology and we were told it was our fault for not having given our credit card details. We hadn't been asked for them. Eventually we were given a room and told we were being upgraded to a more expensive room and made to feel we were lucky! Our boys were booked into a local hotel in the next village. Supper was the usual high standard and as we were going to bed the owner asked if the boys would like to come up for breakfast in the morning. We said that would be nice only to find the following day that we had been charged 20 euros for their breakfasts!!!! Not going back again ever

  • Liked — this time leaving
  • Disliked — the arrogant attitude to a mistake that they made

We've stayed at Casa Clelia twice now & love it. It's a simple Agritourist & the rooms are large, clean, simple and very comfortable.

The best part about this agritourist is the food. Most of the ingredients are grown on the farm and are organic. They serve a great "Taster Menu" which is basically what the chief is cooking that day. I'm vegetarian and with advance notice, they do a terrific veggie menu. The breakfasts are not so great, but there are so many great little coffee bars in Bergamo, etc. that we didn't really mind.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, though they don't speak very much English. They are wonderful with children & there are plenty of animals to keep the kids busy (as well as a small playground).

It is hard to find, so follow the directions carefully!

We were here as a family of 4 last year at the end of our trip and it was excellent. The rooms spacious and the food and ambience very good. So friendly and helpful too as we discovered when the owners rushed to the airport with a passport. Highly recommended
