Hotel Piazza Vecchia
Ranked #19 of 34 Hotels in Bergamo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2017

Hotel Piazza Vecchia is actually located a short block away from Bergamo's picturesque Piazza Vecchia, which is a good thing: it is close enough that you can walk to the Piazza and all the nearby sights, shops, and restaurants literally in a matter of minutes, but it is far enough from the action to ensure that you can have a peaceful retreat when you need it.

Like almost all buildings in the Citta Alta of Bergamo, the hotel building is very old (as in 600 years old!), but the accommodations are completely up to date.

The staff are very friendly, although English-speaking staff members are not always at hand.

Breakfast is included, and is typically Italian, with cheeses, prosciutto, fruit, bread, and pastries. But you can also get cereal and yoghurt.

Be aware that there is a steep staircase to climb to get up to the reception area. There is a chair lift, though we didn't have occasion to try it out. From the reception area there is an elevator that goes to the rooms on the higher floors.

It may not look like much from the outside, as the entrance is on the 3rd floor, using a very old and small elevator. The elevator may be old, but is works and is very quiet. The hotel is nice inside. Breakfast area is very tight.

This small hotel in an ancient building was perfect for us. We stayed over a freezing few days and stopped back in our room to warm up and regroup often. Our room was lovely and like others said had the best bathroom around. The owners were quiet yet friendly and were helpful when we had questions. The breakfast was lovely and had homemade hazelnut cookies I loved and great coffee. We were just so happy here, we heard opera at night and bells in the morning in a ancient Italian town. From an American standpoint the wifi was fast and had CNN on the tv in English which I almost wish they didn't!! I honestly don't know what more you could ask for. Also a wonderful restaurant they recommended was literally 20 feet from the front door Franco. We loved bergamo and this place just made it perfect.

We stayed at this hotel with a group of friends in September. Overall, a centrally located family hotel, very pleasant experience.

Our rooms (5 of them) were all clean and comfortable, big enough for couples. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff was extremely attentive and helpful. Location in the heart of the old town is great, some minor issues regarding parking though if you are traveling with your own car.

Bathrooms were modern, good wifi connection and breakfast was plentiful. Within a 10 minutes walking distance you will find numerous lovely restaurants and some bars, Plenty to do during one weekend.

Parking was somewhat of a challenge, since there is no room for parking, but a few blocks away there is plenty of space. Also, we had our little adventure with the navigator, since the streets of old Bergamo are extremely narrow.

Would we stay here again if we would visit Bergamo? Yes, indeed.

We stayed at this hotel a few days ago and for 2 nights. The hotel is situated in the historical part of the city which is very conviniet. If you go by car they provide you with a parking permission to park nearby. Though.. the rooms facing the street are very very noisy... also, you have to climb a lot of stairs to get to the elevator that means you have to carry your own luggage because there is nobody offering to help you.. the breakfast was Ok but nothing more.. BUT the worst thing about the hotel are the owners themselves! Never smiling.. they made you feel uninvited.. as if they were not happy to have clients...I think maybe they should retire ...

Room Tip: don't choose a room facing the main street!
