The inn is located outside the Alta Citi, a good 20 minute from the funicular station. There is bus service available but one needs to know the station locations, not an easy task even after searching the internet since most information is in native italian. The owners who live next door welcomed me and explained the workings of the apartment located down a steep staircase off Via Borgo Canale. The apartment itself was spotless clean, well appointed but be advised it featured two very narrow, separate beds. A modern bathroom with shower, bidet and quality toiletries.
A patio door opens to reveal a dramatic view of lower Bergamo and the surrounding hillsides, patio chairs are available should you want to relax in the back courtyard. The breakfast is delivered to your room at your requested time, freshly baked croissants & italian crispy bread. The apartment has a Nespresso machine ready for you to make your coffee of choice and a refrigerator stocked with milk, juice, marmalade and butter to complete the typical european continental breakfast. Checkout time is an early 1030.
So not expect the intimacy encountered at your typical family operation such as taking meals in a dedicated area with the host nearby. This is a modern take of a B&B, but well done.
