Very friendly and helpful staff. Quite a nice B&B home with spacious and comfortable rooms, a common area and even a pool. Located inside a gated wall in Bergamo near the airport. We drove into the center and took the funicular into the high city. Gorgeous old streets.

Lovely place to stay, friendly and mega helpful. Would love to rent the whole place instead of one room, only tiny issue, and this was my error, was not realizing that both bedrooms were next to each other and all the other space was shared.

We are worldwide travellers, both for business and for leasure and Bombyx easily compares to the very best hotels and accomodations we stayed at in all regards. While we very much enjoyed the top service and the attention to detail, we just as much loved the privacy and space we were given. Not to mention the pool and jacuzzi - simply the best! Thank you!

At 80 Euros B&B rate this isn't cheap, but the quality and service make it great value for money. Excellent self-service breakfast. We always stay here by preference for a one-night stopover after flying in from the UK. Not easy to find in the dark without TomTom, which takes you right into the drive. Owners are very friendly, professional and helpful. The house is beautiful, rooms large and nicely decorated. The basement swimming pool is luxury itself. Late-night meals available at a couple of quality local restaurants within walking distance.

An excellent B&B! We stayed for four nights and relatives stayed for another two. The hospitality, service, food and attention to detail are wonderful. Raffaella and Andreas are fantastic hosts...local restaurants are great, free parking and a surprise underground heated pool make this a very unique experience. One you'll remember for years as outstanding. You can't say enough positive comments about this facility and family...Buono Fortuna ..it was great.

Bombyx was a lucky find. The two rooms share a beautifully decorated lounge and kitchen in the farmhouse attics. The gardens, and pool complex in the cellars are very special - you won't be disappointed. So long as you can negociate several flights of winding stairs you'll be in for a treat

In Bombyx, the breakfast was very rich, tasty. The swimming pool and the decoration are very pretty. The restaurant "Franco" in the old Bergamo was cheap, but not tasty because of daily cooking without any subtlety (paste and meat) Bombyx caters to well to do and educated couples.

THE Perfect Place. Very beautiful house, very kind hosts. You can't find a single thing you do not like there. We have planned to go to Milan every day, but we liked Bergamo so much that we have stay there for 2 days and only the other 2 we have spent in Milan. Bombyx is a good place to stay if you want to visit Milan, it's only an hour with the train.

Best welcoming ever! Nicest B&B-room ever! These are the reasons to stay here. Close to the airport which could be nice for a very early flight but not really necessary otherwise since the airport is just 15 minutes from Bergamo (new) town center, by an almost direct bus. Recommended if you have a car and plan to visit other places than Bergamo, too.

We had a fantastic stay at the Bombyx. Andreas and his family were so kind and helpful. They picked us up at the airport and also invited us to Giovannni's birthday party. However, after a busy day at Lake Como all we really wanted to do was have a swim and relax. The facilities were excellent. The accommodation was immaculate and I would recommend it to everyone!

We had read previous reviews and so had high expectations of Bombyx. Even so, we were not prepared for what we found. This B&B is absolutely gorgeous. The two rooms are in a loft conversion that includes a lounge, a kitchen, and a separate internet room. This is reached by its own entrance. The quality of materials and finishing touches are first class. A chilled bottle of sparkling wine, chocolates and biscuits awaited our arrival. The kitchen was stocked with food for our use. The lounge had spirits we were welcome to try. The bed had a rose placed upon it. Besides all this, in the basement is a sizeable pool, reached by marble walled corridors, and a snooker room to boot. Its just wonderful. Ideal for a couple, and perhaps perfect for two couples travelling together, Bombyx is topped off by the friendliness of the owners, who were only too wiling to provide whatever help they could. They don't have a lot of English, but hey, its Italy! Take a phrase book and make a little effort, it goes a long way. Bombyx is only 5 minutes walk from the bus into town, and the owners even organised a day bus pass for us (€2.50) which I recommend as it covers the two funicular railways as well, more than paying for itself. You can spend a whole day exploring Bergamo, two at a leisurely pace and it has good public transport links to Milan and Brescia to name but two. We are already recommending this place to friends, and judging by the comments in the guest book (from all over the globe), so are many more people. Pay a visit. You won't be disappointed.

We had an excellent stay at B&B Bobmbyx. The property is a beautiful restored farmhouse and the rooms which are in the attic conversion are beautifully and tastefully furnished. The public area was spacious and comfortable.We were the only occupants and had the facilities to ourselves. It was the equivalent of having an apartment to ourselves. There was a good choice of food for breakfast. The swimming pool was amazing. There is a good bus service into Bergamo centre situated a 3-4 minute walk from the B&B and taxi's are readily available at the station. We would certainly recommend this hotel especially if you want a base for travelling to other parts of northern Italy.

Beautiful italian house and garden with an interesting story behind the name Bombyx. Try to google bymbyx nerie. This is more than a bed with breakfast. It is a genuine house from 1600 - lovely restored and a family with a lot of hospitality. We had a lovely room, bathroom with spa and also a kitchen and a lounge. Go try it yourself!

I was just there for one night waiting for my flight to leave out of the local airport. I was so happy with this B&B that I booked the room again for 5 nights later this month for a romantic vacation with my husband. Milano is only 45 minutes away and I think Venice is only about 2 hours - the mountains are less than an hour, Verona and Lake Garda are also nearby. The pool is fantastic.

The Bombyx was a delightful surprise. An amazing loft apartment within a traditional rustic family farm house. Beautiful gardens with the use of a swimming pool, all at an exceptional price.We chose this because it was near to the airport. The owners offer a 10euro shuttle service as opposed to the 20 euro taxi fare. This is an ideal base to explore Bergamo as a whole, and a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. Bus services are nearby to take you to the Citta Alta. Bergamo is an overlooked treasure, a truly amazing place, would suit couples wanting a cheap weekend break to a beautiful medieval Italian city.

This was absolutely the best place we have ever been to in Italy, and this was our fourth vacation in the country. The house and rooms were perfect. The family that owns the B&B was very friendly and helpful. They served really good breakfasts, with homemade apfelstrudel. We were invited to a dinner with the family, and they served delicious food typical for the Bergamo area. We would go back to Bergamo just to be able to stay at Bombyx B&B again. And of course, we really recommend you to stay here.
