Citta Alta location

by written on February 25, 2012

This review is based on a visit to the hotel and not on any actual experience of staying at Albergo Il Sole.

During December 2011 we viewed the rooms of this hotel (which also houses a Ristorante Pizzeria) as part of our preparation for EurMeet in 2012. The hotel (and restaurant) is family run and has 10 rooms which have recently been renovated. There is a variety of rooms available including single, double (also available for single occupancy) and triple. Rates range from €65 for single to €110 for triple.

Rooms are accessed via a series of staircases (no lift).

We were shown two triple rooms; the first was simply furnished, including a double bed, a single, wardrobe and a desk with chair as well as telephone, fridge and TV. The en suite facilities was a very spacious bathroom with bath (and over-bath shower), bidet, WC and wash hand basin; towels and hairdryer were provided.

We were then showed another triple room which was very similar. Whilst the third room we viewed was smaller and had an en suite shower room.

Check-in is between 12:00 and 23:00 (14:00 on Thursdays) and small pets are allowed.

The hotel accepts American Express, Visa, Bankamericard, CartaSi, Eurocard and JCB.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a very traditional feel and is simply decorated and furnished.

Directions: From the upper station of the Bassa-Alta funicular, go straight ahead along Via Gombita until just after Piazza Vecchiaand Il Sole is in front of you on the right.

Comfortable accommodation in Citta Alta

by written on December 13, 2011


I've not stayed at this hotel (Albergo-Ristorante-Pizzeria), but had the chance to view some of the rooms here - This was during our recent reccy for EurMeet 2012, when we booked the restaurant here for our Sunday Evening Farewell Meal.

Family run, with 10 recently renovated rooms. Access to rooms is by staircases - no lift (elevator, so probably not suitable for anyone with mobility/breathing problems.

Singles (65 Euros), doubles (85 Euros per room) and triples (110 Euros) - plus double for single occupancy. Breakfast included. Prices January - December 2011

Restaurant with seating inside on two levels, plus outside terrace. Home Cooking. Typical Bergamesque dishes, pizza cooked in their wood burning oven. (Closed Thursdays)

Nearby Car Parking - permit provided.

We were shown a Triple room - Which was quite simply decorated/furnished. One double bed and a single (pic 2), with Wardrobe space. - Each room has a shower or bath, colour TV, telephone and mini fridge.

The en-suite bathroom was more spacious than I'd anticipated, with bath, WC, bidet and wash basin. Hairdryer and towels.
We checked out another similar triple room, and nearly didn't view the 3rd room, but this was smaller with a small shower room with WC and bidet.

As this property is in one of the busiest parts of Citta Alta, I'm not sure how noisy this would be, especially in summer with people sitting outside in the square, traffic etc. Though I haven't read any reports of unwanted noise.

Credit Cards - Am Ex, Bankamericard, CartaSi, Eurocard,Visa and Jcb

Check in 12.00- 23.00 (14.00 on Thursdays)
Check out by 11.00
Small pets allowed

Unique Quality: A Great location, up in Citta Alta on Via Gambita opposite Piazza Vecchia.

An historical hotel with character and a friendly atmosphere

Directions: From the Funicular Station, head forward along Via Gombita to just past Piazza Vecchia,(where it becomes Via B. Colleoni) and Il Sole is in front of you on the right hand side.

This was a nice hotel well located in the old city. The only problem is that one has to park quite far from the hotel and bring one's luggage on a coble stoned street.

Hotel 'Il Sole'

by written on August 25, 2002

We stayed at the hotel 'Il Sole', which was perfectly located in the center of the old town of Bergamo. We checked into our rooms and waitied for the other VT'ers to arrive.
The only disadvantage of the hotel is the parkingspace. You can't park directly outside the hotel, but on a square not that far from the hotel.

Hotel and Restaurant IL SOLE

by written on August 24, 2002

Double room 60 Euro

Single room 45 Euro

the 'agnello d'oro' is said to be as good and in a great location too, but if you like to stay out at nigth, remember they close at 1AM while 'il sole' gives you the key

Unique Quality: I'm not used to suggest hotels,but this one is really worthwile. Not too expensive (rather cheap according to italian standards) good quality and the best location in bergamo.
