Reasonable priced accom just off the beaten track

I booked this 3* hotel through Booking.com, mainly for its cost and location - we wanted to be fairly near to the station and leics' hotel, so that we could meet up easily - well it was a longer walk than we'd anticipated - probably about 30 minutes! (We soon found out where the nearest bus stops were from here to the town centre) It is about 15 -20 minutes walk upto Citta Alta up one of the many medieval 'Stair cases' or 'scaletta' Otherwise catch one of the buses to Puerta Nuova or the station and catch the 1A bus to the funicular for a ride upto the upper old town, or just continue on the bus. Leaving the apartment and turning left, leads to the bus stop (cross the road for the bus to town)

I'd booked a twin room, and had re-iterated this prior to arrival - So I was somewhat shocked to find that there were only double beds (or family rooms) in this establishment - Hmmmmm! Well, it was only for 3 nights.

The Auberge/hotel is located in a quiet residential apartment block - it is on the ground floor, adjacent to a cafe/restaurant, where we ate on our first night.

The 7 rooms are colour themed - ours was The Blue Room.

Double bed, bedside tables, dressing table/desk, wardrobe, TV, Kettle -tea/coffee. View onto 'terrace' (pic 5) Didn't have access to this though.
Bathroom - shower, WC, basin, towels (blue) loo paper, complimentary soap,showergel/shampoo

Breakfast is served in the basement - access by a curved stone staircase - so not ideal for those with mobility problems.
Continental Breakfast - tea/coffee/hot chocolate, pastries, cakes, bread, cheese, salami/ham, yogurt, jams and juice. There is a minimarket/grocers nearby to supplement this.

Free WIFI was advertised, but we had trouble getting a connection. However the receptionist allowed Gilly to use the hotel PC - She had an urgent mission - to upload The Eurmeet page etc, ready for our announcement that Eurmeet 2012 was to be held in Bergamo!!!!!!

A taxi late at night called from the reception of the Best Western Hotel (Puerta Nuova) to Santa Caterina cost around 14 Euros

Unique Quality: Clean spacious room, friendly reception staff.

Location - In residential area - Via Alberico da Rosciate doesn't have too much 'local character', but a few metres away onto the next street (will find my map for its name!), and you are in amongst the local workers and shoppers etc - plenty of small independent shops, a smattering of churches and parks, bars, restaurants etc.
It was quite popular at night with people enjoying a drink outside the bars.

Directions: Citta Bassa Santa Caterina Borgo/ borough

Santa Caterina Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 3, 2011

We arrived at Albergo Santa Caterina rather warm from a long walk through the Citta Bassa from the train station. Albergo Santa Caterina is located in a residential area of Bergamo within reasonable (uphill) walking distance of the Citta Alta.

We stayed for 3 nights in May 2011.

The hotel (Albergo) is located on the ground floor of a double block of flats; it comprises seven colour-named rooms, each containing colour co-ordinated accents and accessories. We stayed in the Blue Room which had an en-suite showeroom provided with soap, shampoo and shower gel. The room has a dressing table and wardroom but did lack the provision of some easy chairs for comfortable seating.

Breakfast is served in a basement room and comprised pastries, yoghurts, bread, salami and cheese. Fresh coffee or tea was made to order.

Next door to the hotel, there is a Sicilian cafe and within easy walking distance a fruit and vegetable shop as well as a laundromat.

Unique Quality: Although the hotel is advertised on some websites as having twin rooms, it does not have any twin rooms. All rooms in Hotel Santa Caterina are double or family.
