WE arrived with my son by train to Bergamo from Venice last February. We wanted to visit Bergamo because it is known to be a very beautiful city with an antique city on top of the mountain and a very interesting modern city located upon the valley.
This hotel is one block from the Bergamo local train station (ferrovia), and that makes it one of the best located hotels in Bergamo. It is well-serviced, with a very polite and helpful staff which speaks English, and Spanish. We stayed here in a three-day visit to Bergamo and we enjoyed very much the hotel because of its comfortable rooms, with two double queen beds, and a great variety of amenities, like coffee-maker, fridge, and snacks. (some of this stuff for free)
The breakfast is very good and well served, and it is very varied.
On top of that, the Pope Giovanni XXIII Street is across the street and it has bus stops from where you can take the number 1A line to go to the "Citta Alta" or antique city of Bergamo, where the history of this beautiful city began.
Otherwise, you can go to the end of the street and take the FUNICULAR to go up to the CITTA VECCHIA. We decided to go by bus. You can buy the bus tickets at the Tobacco Stores (tabaccheria). The bus takes you up the hill until the end of the line.
Once there, you must search for and old entrance in the wall, which goes to the center Piazza of Bergamo Antique City. Here you will find souvenirs, shops, bars, restaurants, pizzerias. You must visit the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore and the Campanile in front of it. Amazing places to go. less
