    I loved everything but people should be prepared to have a small elevator or go around the building to use stairs. This is an old building and the owners have done everything possible to provide accessibility to the upper floors.

    The location is fantastic! We had a room with a balcony and it was an absolute dream! We could see the mountains and nature along with the beautiful buildings, and at the same time we were steps from Piazza Vecchia. The owners were so sweet! When we departed they gave us a beautiful boxed pastry for the road!

    Difficulty in reaching hotel to drop luggage. Draconian resident parking charges - and car had to be parked some way from the hotel.

    Very comfortable room, smart with no extra embellishments. Bathroom superbly appointed. Bed very comfortable. A welcome bottle of wine on arrival. Lovely view of the historic centre from bedroom window.

    I boked this last minute and even though I was not quite fitting the hotel's clientele I was not expecting to be treated like plebs. This is what happened. Directions to get to the car park were really unclear, I was not given free parking (whereas some other guests did) and in general I was treated as a class B guest. Really not impressed. Would never recommend this place to anyone

    Driving to the hotel is not for the faint of heart under the best of circumstances and parking is 200 meters away.

    The staff at the hotel were heroic in helping us deal (successfully) with unexpected crowds and severe traffic restrictions stemming from a political protest on the day we arrived and a marathon being run the day we were scheduled to depart. The awesome, central location of the hotel in the old city is a big plus; the rooms were very spacious and comfortable; the breakfast was better than most. In hindsight, we should have devoted a second day to Bergamo.

    No stairs up to our room on second floor. I don't like lifts so this was a problem for me. No fire escape stairs down from second floor. Emergency stairs to get across balconies but not easy for anybody with mobility issues. We were not made aware of evacuation procedure at check in - fortunately we didn't need to know it!

    The location is excellent - right in centre of old town. Really good size room with excellent bathroom. Good breakfast and lovely fresh fruit. Parking pass provided for free on street parking. Excellent air conditioning in room and in breakfast room.

    Old city not accessible by private car weekend evenings, so my friends couldn't bring me back to hotel. From the suburbs it is very difficult to get a taxi at weekends. I could not get early breakfast on the day I left for the airport, my taxi was booked for 7.30 Some items you expect in a hotel room were not provided - paper hankies, writing pad. Four Tea bags were provided, if you needed more you would have to buy them for €1 each from reception. I visited the 'bar' twice, but on neither occasion was there a member of staff to serve me, so I went out. As I had paid a very high price for this hotel I was expecting something much better.

At 10PM the church bells ring for almost 10 minutes. Noise is minimal if the window is closed.
