Beautiful Spaces: Where to Stay in Bergamo, Italy

Welcome back to Beautiful Spaces—a series of posts in which I talk about the apartments, hotels, hostels, & B&Bs we stay in all over the world. It all started in 2013 when I realized that my contentment on the road is directly connected to how much I love where I’m living…and so made a commitment to find beautiful spaces to call home along the way. 

This Bergamo hotel was kind enough to give me two complimentary nights (and breakfast) in exchange for this review. Opinions are my own. 

First things first: I love this hotel.

I love the incredible, kind staff who pointed us toward their favorite restaurant and helped us secure a last-minute reservation.

I love the lofty lobby with its modern touches.

I love the quiet breakfast room where I lingered over coffee with my book.

And most of all I loved our room: huge, comfortable bed; the couch where I could sit at the end of the day and edit my photos; the giant fruit bowl that greeted us as we entered; the exposed wood-beam ceilings and the design that balanced perfectly between modern and comfortable and rustic and charming.

Of course, that’s all before mentioning the location: half a block off Bergamo Alta’s main street – close enough to get to everything, but just far enough to feel quieter and more residential.

If you’re heading to Bergamo, I’d absolutely recommend it.
