Lombardy’s enchanting city of Bergamo, northeast of Milan, is brimming with artistic treasures and packed with medieval Renaissance and baroque architecture. Sweeping views over the southern plains and a host of fine-dining restaurants add to its many charms. The city comprises two distinct parts: the ancient hilltop Città Alta (upper town), a maze of tiny cobbled medieval streets encircled by Venetian walls, with the famous Piazza Vecchia at its heart, and the more modern Città Bassa (lower town) below, reached by a steep funicular railway.
In a prime position in Città Alta, near the top of the funicular, sits the charming Fuoriporta House, an intimate and friendly boutique bed and breakfast. Housed in a picturesque old building, the interiors here are decidedly chic, with bold feature wallpaper in the guest rooms and a designer feel throughout. Enjoy your morning coffee up on a flower-filled terrace overlooking the little train as it rolls by. Downstairs, you’ll find a lively lounge bar favored by locals and an exquisite sushi restaurant next door.
The Superior rooms offer 215 square feet and are cheerfully decorated with bold patterned wallpaper. You can also opt for a Deluxe room, located at the front of the hotel and boasting 270 square feet of space, as well as extra perks, like a bathrobe and slippers.
The downstairs Lounge Bar opens early for breakfast, which includes a tasty selection of pastries, cakes and blended fruit and vegetable juices. The lunch and dinner menu offers everything from fresh salads to classic pastas. Next door sits RYU sushi restaurant, offering a tempting array of beautifully presented dishes.
The hotel is located in Bergamo Alta, right next to San Vigilio Funicular and a short walk from Piazza Vecchia. Wander the lovely cobbled streets, packed with beautiful craft shops, taverns, wine bars and restaurants, and discover the hidden charms of this gorgeous area. While here, you can also take a day trip into Milan – about an hour’s drive away.
How to Get There
While not a traditional business hotel, this is truly one of the best hotels I have stayed in in many years of travel. The hotel itself is really quaint and situated on the edge of the old town with a great pizzeria right next door. The rooms are stylish and well appointed with everything a business or holiday traveler could want; comfortable bed, good shower and good WIFI. Clearly management are very attentive and everything is clean and well kept. They serve a great breakfast too.
On top of all this, management and staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with style and grace.
I hope to get the opportunity to go back some day.
Loved the location and small outside bar , you could relax with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Excellent friendly welcome , staff were nice and breakfast was also good . Modern rooms absolutely spotless , parking is a 2 minute stroll although not directly on site . We would defo return
This hotel is just a 2 mins walk away from the No.1 bus stop which takes you directly to the Bergamo airport. The bus trip only takes about 20 minutes so it is very convenient. The hotel is located in the Citta Alta part of Bergamo so there is so much to see around it and everything is just walking distance.
The room and bathroom were clean. The only thing I would say about it is that the room was quite dark, we had the room on the top floor and there was a small round window that we couldn't really seem much from. The staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was nice.
