Top class, beautiful apartment in a lovely town
This apartment is of high quality and comfort. It has more than the usual requirements and is extremely spacious. It is close enough to shops and restaurants in the lower city and also to the station and the upper city.
Although the owners were away during our stay, their friend Sharon was on hand to help and advise us. She was lovely and even replied by text with any questions we had.
Generously, items were provided such as milk, coffee, breakfast items, drinks etc which is a really nice touch.
We would highly recommend this apartment for 2 couples and would return.
The Mint Terrace is a wonderful apartment, and we loved being in beautiful Bergamo. Strongly recommend the private parking place they have secured, as you are not likely to find parking on the street. The parking spot cost 50 euros for the whole week and is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment but we thought that was a great way to begin and end our days. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby and you can take the funicular to the fantastic Citta Alta for a visit to a walled city. Lots to do there as well. You will not need to drive unless you leave Bergamo to see other places like Venice or Verona (which we did). Also drove to Lugano, Switzerland for a little day trip. Apartment is very clean and spacious, spread out over 3 floors and has 2 terraces. If you have children, there is a lovely loft area on the top level, with toys and a baby gate. Thanks to Giovanni for the little extras like cheese, cold cuts, coffee and even a couple of bottles of beer and Proseco!
A gem in the middle of a wonderful town!
This is a great apartment..it's even better than the pictures and is spotless and very spacious. Giovanni went out of his way to help us get settled and made us feel at home in his beautiful place. If you have a car, we highly recommend using the off street parking which Giovanni provides for a very reasonable cost. We hope to be back before too long.
Really well set out apartment with attention to detail and small additions (e.g. lollies, milk, beer, wine, cheese, bath products, etc, etc). It is a walk up to old town (but that is fine and well worth it - amazing) right in shopping district and not far from train and car park. A washing machine one of few things missing and can be a little bit of street noise but overall would strongly recommend and would want to come back.
Very tastefully decorated and comfortable and spacious.
We enjoy our time in the Mint Terrace. It was within easy walking distance to all the sites. We enjoyed visiting the old city. Our only complaint: the Bergamo Visitors Center was not open at it's stated hours. This made our arrival in Bergamo more difficult than it should have been.
Our first impression of the Mint Terrace was its ‘wow’ factor as Giovanni showed us its top quality features. To quote an earlier reviewer “Perfumed linen, Nespresso Machine, remote controlled black out shutters, expensive soaps in the bathrooms, latest tech TV's and WiFi - all you could ask for”. It is centrally located in lower Bergamo; close to shops, restaurants, buses, train station, sights and the funicular that takes you to Città Alta.
Accessed is by a lift that requires a key to ensure privacy, the Mint Terrace ranges over three levels. The lower level contains the two spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, the next has the kitchen, dining and lounge area whilst the last level is a secure gated children’s play room. The apartment also boasts three spacious terraces looking out onto the streets of 20 Settembre and Vía Zambonate.
Being November, on the second night of our stay it was slightly chilly but not chilly enough to make us try figure out how to turn on heating.
We had a lovely, pleasant three day stay in this apartment and, if returning to Bergamo as we hope to, the Mint Terrace will be the very top of our list.
Dear Jane, hosting you and your family was a real pleasure.
Thank you very much for your beautiful review and appreciation about our apartment. We try our best to make our guests feeling comfortable and ‘feeling at home’, and your words mean a lot to us. We hope to meet you again the next time you’ll come to Bergamo.
