B&B Il Ciliegio
Ranked #34 of 182 Bergamo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 August 2013

It is convenient to stay overnight in Bergamo if you arrive by an afternoon or evening flight. Maybe you rent a car, like we did, and I doubt you can find a better place to stay and let down your shoulders than by Filippo in B&B Ciiiegio. To find the place without too much trouble, you need some GPS (GMAP is sufficient) or a good city map. You are lucky if you hit the right way out from the first big roundabout from the airport, but Bergamo is not too big, and you will succeed quickly as long as you do not enter the Milano-Venezia autostrada.
B&B is equally covenient for the last night in Italy before flying home.
Ciliegio has a private, secure parking space and is located in a quiet villa environment. Rooms and beds are fine, and the bathrooms are excellent. However, some of the rooms share the bathroom. Open free WiFi.
If it is late and you could do with some food, you have a ten minutes walk down the road and 300 meters to the right to a simple but very good and "real Italian" pizza shop. Filippo will advise you. They have ice cream, soft drinks, beer and wine bottles, too, at very reasonable prices. It is next door to a bancomat.
It is half an hour to walk up th ehill to the old city.
In the morning, you get a very good breakfast, with jam, cheese, salami, egg, youghurt, juice.
Isn't there any negative to say? Well, the TV has hundreds of channels, but they are all Italian. If the show is not Italian, it is dubbed in Italian. You don't go to Italia to watch TV, but I must admit we would have liked to see news and weather on e.g. BBC World, DW, Sky news or CNN.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony and private bath, if available. Don't forget that you pay in cash...

Stayed at this bed and breakfast for 4 nights in July. The pick up service from the airport is very convenient especially if arriving late. Filippo does his utmost to make everybody's stay a pleasant one. Very clean rooms and breakfast quite abundant. The location is very quiet with convenient bus stop to the city centre a few metres away. For those who do not mind walking Citta Alta is about 30mins away but can also be accessed from the city centre by public transport.
Filippo also provided the 3 day ticket besides maps and guide books.

This clean and cosy B&B is located not far from the Old City (Citta Alta), which makes it a pretty good location for Bergamo sight-seeing. The room was very clean, although slightly dark. The breakfast was very nice. The hotel has free parking, which was very convenient. What I liked most is that the owner provides a map and the book about Bergamo, which was very useful during sight-seeing.

Our family recently stayed in Bergamo for 2 nights at Filipo's bed and breakfast. My husband and I had one room and our teenage daughters had their own room. The rooms were excellent, clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and filling (croissants, yogurt, granola, eggs, coffee, juice, cheese/meat).

Filipo was attentive to our every need and provided us with a guide book and map and the use of umbrellas. He offered suggestions for restaurants and provided us with transportation to and from the train station.

I recommend this bed and breakfast to all.

Fillippo was so helpful. He gave us his mobile number and came to assist us when we got lost on our way from collecting our hire car. Our room was lovely and had all we needed. Filippo recommended a very good restaurant for dinner.The breakfast was delicious and set us up well for exploring the old town, a twenty minute walk away, Filippo let us leave our car and loaned us a map and guide book. A truly great place to stay.

Bergamo is a lovely place to visit so finding a lovely b & b ( our 2nd visit) makes it even better. Comfortable rooms, great breakfast and a host who is only too happy to help your stay be as perfect as it can be.

This is our second time at il ciliegio but it will not be our last . Once again the welcome from fillipo was 2nd to none he was waiting for us at the airport as agreed and even though we arrived early by the time we had a cup of tea our room was ready. Even though we had stayed before fillipo took us through everything we would need to know to enjoy our stay . As other people have said the breakfast is amazing the cleanliness is top notch and the value for money is outstanding and in a fantastic location if you are coming to bergamo this is a great place to stay. Thank you again and we cannot wait to return
