Beautiful apartment in perfect old town location
Easy communication with Barbara and Laura. Amazing location in heart of old town, just a few minutes from everything. Apartment looks better than photos - really light and well designed to a high spec. Very highly recommended.
Jack e Rebecca sono stati meravigliosi ospiti, simpatici puntuali e molto rispettosi delle regole della casa. Auguro a tutti di averli come ospiti!
If you are even remotely thinking about a visit to the Città Alta of Bergamo, I will give you two pieces of advice. One: Do it. Two: Stay here. This is one of the most perfect apartments I have ever rented (which have been many). The location is at the top of the funicolare of the Città Alta so it is an easy few steps. It has a very quiet garden courtyard with lovely tower views. It is completely modern inside and so tastefully done. Barbara was responsive to any request and Laura gave me a lovely welcome. I could not have asked for a better way to while away a few days ... except to have more of them. This is a fascinating jewel of a hill town with lots to see and do. If you enjoy walking, the hills around the city are worth your while. The Science Museum was a special treat. I will most certainly be back.
A New Day in Bergamo
What a wonderful place to enjoy the lovely Citta Alta! Barbara has done an amazing job turning an old space into a charming, modern apartment. Everything has been designed into a comfortable,usable flat....complete with a dishwasher and washing machine. There were wonderful restaurants and shops just steps away! Barbara and Lauren were extremely helpful with bags getting to and from the apartment. There are stairs up from the street, but quite manageable for two 80yr old people! We enjoyed our 4 days and look forward to another visit!
George and Frances sono stati ospiti meravigliosi, entusiasti, allegri, molto rispettosi delle regole della casa e con un formidabile spirito sportivo e giovanile!
Auguro a tutti di ospitarli e saro' felice se volessero tornare!
Way too hot: no fan, major construction right outside!
This was the first bad experience I ever had in renting an apartment on this site. The major historical renovation directly outside the apartment began at 7 am, and continued until 6 pm. It was extremely noisy, and guests should be told of this! I was not.
The heat was unbearable- no breeze- and when windows open the construction noise was too loud to talk. When I requested a fan, the owner said "no". The thermostat in bedroom registered 30 degrees C at 10 at night (about 86 degrees F) making it a horribly hot night. The toilet seat was broken, making bathroom difficult to use.
I communicated to owners that the lack of a fan or good ventilation, the ongoing major historical construction, and broken toilet seat made this apartment too uncomfortable to remain in.
I had to find a quiet, calm, comfortable hotel room at my own expense. And owners refused to refund me, though I left after one awful night and had paid for three nights.
I would not recommend this apartment at all- find somewhere else.
After one year of positive experiences with satisfied and very good customers I met Tamar … I do not wish anyone to have her as guests.
Tamar, just arrived, complained about the lack of bedding for the third bed (the reservation was made for two people and she was never asked for the extra bed ....!) But she was promptly satisfied by taking the required sheets.
She also complained about the overheating of Italian summer (it was specified that there was no air conditioning…) and the noise of a yard in the square in front of the building where there is apartment.
The apartment is in the heart of the historic upper town, and sometime there are building’s renovation… (The yard started at 8am and the work of disassembling a scaffold lasted only one day…!)
Tamar has "fled away" without the possibility of agreement, then she say that there was no refund by the property ....
I am sorry that Tamar did not find well, but the reasons that she complained (the heat of summer or the noise of a temporary construction site nearby) do not depend directly on me... I have tried to meet her needs from the start and I have respond promptly to her requests, but Tamar did not want to feel right!
It was really a bad experience!
Gorgeous apartment in a unique location
If you think of visiting Bergamo, this is probably one of your best options! Great location, beautiful apartment, great design!
Alfredo è stato un ospite meraviglioso, simpatico puntuale e molto attento alle regole della casa! molto raccomandato!! Spero torni presto a Porta 22!!
Contemporary very well appointed apartment in the Cottage Alta of Bergamo
Near the funicular station with a number of restaurants nearby. Barbara was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. Would stay here again when back in Bergamo
James and Christine havebeen wonderful hosts, very nice, timely and very correct with the rules of the house ... I hope they come back to Porta 22!
The apartment PORTA 22 is located in the heart of the city, in the Upper Town just steps from the arrival of the funicular railway. Just go out and you find yourself immersed in the unique atmosphere of medieval narrow alleys, where you can walk among the monuments, churches and old squares or decide to enjoy the breathtaking view on Viale delle Mura. Restaurants, bars and shops, open in summer also in the evening, allow extremely wide choice.
Despite the absolute centrality, the apartment is extremely quiet and very bright thanks to its beautiful view.
The accommodation is in a strategic position with regard to public transport: a few steps from the funicular and from the bus stop, is also easily accessible from the airport by airport bus, stopping at Lower Funicolar Station and then taking to the City Funicular high. On arrival the apartment is located less than 1 minute walk.
