“so-so”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

I am rather hesitant and upset that they made a copy of my ID. I know it's for security purposes but according to the terms and agreement of Mastercard that in no way or cause should a merchant make a copy of the card holder's ID unless it is for shipping. The room is alright, dirty bedroom floor, lots of dust bunnies under the bed and table, mold on the wall but tried to cover it... Spotless bathroom. I didn't try the breakfast. Friendly host (i forgot the name of the young man) a little snobby hostess, there was also a young lady (i think she is the daughter or grand daughter of the hostess) she is very nice and friendly, she tried to assist me with the TV but i fixed it in the end. I can hear the foot steps of the people upstairs. I will only comeback if left with NO choice. 3 star is too much i think this is just a 2 star hotel.

A very nice clean and well furnished hotel. It is located in a quiet side-street just 10 minutes easy walk from the seafront & main piazza of Trieste.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, though only spoke a little English, (why do Brits expect everyone should speak English?).
Breakfast the first couple of days was a little limited, though this improved when the hotel filled up a bit.
Very nice and well located hotel, Trieste is a good base for exploring the Slovenian coast and in easy reach of the capital Ljubljana.
Dont Drive to the hotel- Trieste was not built with cars in mind. The hotel is located in a dead-end side-street. My Sat- Nav turned me into the street, then after dropping off the suitcases and the wife I had to reverse back up the street onto the main road as it wasn`t wide enough to make a U- turn in. Those Italian drivers really appreciated my driving skills, they honked their horns, flashed their lights and waved their arms about endlessly!
When I found the parking garage the hotel receptionist sent me to it was an eye-watering 25 Euros per day. Refusing the price would mean reversing again, out onto another main street, which I just couldn`t face again. Walk, go by train or Taxi. Don`t drive!

Great hotel to stay at, right in the center, very close parking areas, excellent food and breakfast services included in the room's price, the rooms are very large, very clean and tidy, great bathroom and generaly a lovely atmosphere. Above all very warm and friendly personnal!!!

This is definately the hotel of choice, whenever in Trieste! Me and my boyfriend can't wait to go back there again!

Highly recommended!

Big enough room, clean bathroom, comfortable. Expensive at 70 euros a night considering the blah experience, no free Internet access, so-so locale, indifferent staff, and blah breakfast.

Was not bad and was not good.

We stayed at this hotel one night: the room was very spacious and comfortable, especially the bed. After a good night sleep, breakfast was unfortunately a delusion: dirty towels and sad small jam boxes.
The hotel has been recently renovated and has also a restaurant (which we did not try). It is located next to one of pedestrian area, where you can find plenty of restaurants, delicious ice cream stores and cinemas
Given the heavy traffic in Trieste, I would suggest not to go by car: find a parking slot can be a nightmare.

I knew about the previous comment....but friends in Trieste booked for me the place so I could not step back...I just came back and have to say to all that the place is perfect "german style": convenient, clean, great location. Rooms are very small so if you are well above athletic figure you might have problems entering the shower but apart from that...There are also lovely, colorful, and fun statues and paintings from a local artist.

  • Liked — clean, comfortable bed, nice staff
  • Disliked — small shower

Imagine a travelodge...... Now reduce the quality of furnishings, bedding and room size by 30%. Now remove ALL sound insulation between rooms so that you can hear every conversation, every televsion and every badly made drawer closing. Fill the room with the smell of smoke. Double the price and you now have the 'Albergo al viale.'

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website - they have been cleverly done.

We ended up here for 2 nights after our flight home was cancelled and it really put a dampener on our trip. We fail to understand how it was ever awarded 3 stars, it really is a depressing place to stay.

  • Liked — Closing the door on the way out
  • Disliked — Where do you start? Probably the NOISE
