When the quest for the most stylish form gets in the way of function inconvenience results. Example; slick room but it has a bathroom split in two, one part on each side of bed. That means after using the commode or toilet one must walk completely around bed to enter the vanity/shower area in order to wash hands.
Otherwise it is an excellent hotel. A bit over designed but everything else including the food was quite good.
What a wonderful place to stay to take in the beautiful old city. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel, all within a leisurly walk to some of the most amazing historical buildings Bergamo has to offer. Would reccommend this hotel to friends & family without hesitation.

I arrived at I Ghiri after too many hours of travel. Just as Cristina, the hostess relayed, the B&B was a short walk after the Colle Aperto. Thankfully, the host helped me my suitcase. The many steps would be the only short coming to the inn. My room was clean and spacious with WiFi. I would say the same of the bathroom. My host also showed me a kitchen area with fruit and teas. After booking with other European B&B's I was suspicious of the bed. It looked rather ordinary. But, the bed was extremely comfortable and the linens light weight and sufficiently warm.
What was best with I Ghiri, however, was Cristina. She prepared a wonderful breakfast and spoke with me during it. She is a warm, lovely person. She goes out of her way to make her guests comfortable. I would stay again in a heart beat.

This B & B was perfect for our stay in Bergamo. Centrally located, a wonderful host, terrific breakfast. It is housed in a 16th century house with many period features. The room was large and beautifully furnished. Old world charm with modern plumbing.
If we return to Bergamo we will certainly book it again.

Ideal location right in the heart of the citta alta of Bergamo on the main shopping street. Enter the door into the courtyard a a short flight of stairs brings you to a lovely apartment with a kitchen and two bedrooms. The bathrooms were very clean and well appointed. But the best part is the wonderfully kind and helpful hosts who provided one of the best and fullest breakfasts we have enjoyed in our tour of Italian B&Bs: no packaged biscuits and stale bread. Hard boiled eggs with fresh arugula, fresh rolls, cold cuts, coffee, tea and juice. All served with a smile and genuine conversation. Lovely. Highly recommended.
