This is the most rustic beautiful apartment you could hope to rent for facilities,location and cleanliness. You arrive at airport and get the no 1 bus to old town . 5 mins walk to apartment. Maria and son waiting in the street for you with warm welcome even though we were late. Huge homemade cake to welcome us and we'll stocked fridge with water juice yoghurts fruit Jams etc etc which lasted 3 days. So clean and well equipped so many towels , soaps, loo roll and more. But it is also such a fab location. 2mins up the hill and you are on the Main Street in old town and a few mins from funicular. Stay here not in lower town . This apartment ticks all the boxes. Close to everything you want to be near.

We stayed at Crisalide in early January 2014. We arrived quickly to the Alta apartment thanks to perfect instructions and were met by Maria and her son who spoke english for her. They are both charming and warm hosts who provided information for every detail and more. The apartment was on the second floor and once inside there was an amazing aroma, Maria had baked us a cake (it was delicious!)! The apartment was fully updated but retained a warm, cozy feel. It was very clean and well furnished. There was everything imaginable stocked in the kitchen for breakfast: juices, water, coffee and teas, beautiful fruit, and much more. Such hospitality! The corner kitchen was bright and looked out on the small square. There is a small balcony off one of the two bedrooms and it has a nice view up and down the street. The bed linens were of excellent quality and there were plenty of soft pillows and blankets. The bed was actually the most comfortable on our entire trip, as it was not hard as a rock like the Italians seem to prefer! There was plenty of wardrobe space for clothes and the bedrooms were spacious. The bath had plenty of aromatic soaps and lots of towels. The decor is very artistically done and also had many decorations for the holidays and New Years, which was a very nice touch. The main street in Alta Bergamo is just up the hill so all of town is very convenient. There is a steak restaurant below the apartment on the ground floor (no problem with aromas from the restaurant) but we tried it and do NOT recommend it. The heat worked well so we were very comfortable. The wifi worked fine and was a strong signal throughout the whole apartment. Maria also helped us with any inquiry and booked a taxi for our early morning departure. We very much enjoyed our stay at Crisalide and especially owe that to the great hospitality of Maria. We will look forward to staying at Crisalide again.
