The hotel is James Joyce’s former home in his self imposed exile. From here he worked as a translator and wrote his short stories and some of his other works. It is now classically themed after his labyrinthine novel Ulysses. It is further curiously chocolate. Light and dark brown marble in the bathrooms, dark chocolate furniture - even a hint of chocolate aroma in the elegant wide stairwell lined with framed antique drawings of Greek and Roman statues.This is restrained Italian regency style, elegant capacious rooms and bathrooms, intricate parque flooring ,beautifully clean and well appointed. Breakfast is excellent with a full range of croissants juices fruits , yoghurts , cheeses, excellent coffee and even cooked items for the more northern taste. Service excellent discrete and attentive.
Our linguaphone Italian is matched by perfect English from the suited sophisticated receptionist who is learning Greek and Turkish. He and his assistant are very helpful on information about attractions, local restaurants and getting about the city.

Room Tip: take the advice of the receptionist

My stay at the Victoria Hotel was a wonderful experience. Before my arrival I had emailed the hotel with numerous questions about Trieste. I always received a prompt reply. I cannot say enough about the staff at the hotel. Everyone had a pleasant attitude and was very helpful. The rooms are a good size , decorated nicely and very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel . I also recommend visiting the city of Trieste. It was a wonderful surprise for my husband and I.

The Victoria was a pleasant hotel. From the outside it appears to be a gem in a bit of a less attractive area of Trieste, but it was only .8 miles from the historic area, and the hotel itself was very nice. Rooms are small, but well appointed with nice and modern bathrooms. Unfortunately the temperature could not be adjusted, but otherwise the room was very nicely appointed and clean. Trieste has a lot of tight and crowded one-way streets that make driving difficult, and you have to park your car at one of two lots nearby. All in all, a good hotel for a reasonable price. Seems to cater mostly to Italians, but good English speaking front-desk and attentive staff.

Room Tip: Higher floors likely have less street noise.

This is a beautiful hotel with good sized tastefully decorated bedrooms. The bathrooms were spacious with excellent showers.
The buffet breakfast was particularly noteworthy with a full selection of fruit salad, continental meats, cereals, hot meat and scrambled eggs as well as croissants and mini pastries.
Short walk (10 mins) into town and all of the main tourist areas.
Only complaint is that the jacuzzi was luke warm, whilst the rest of the spa (sauna, steam rooms) was perfect.

In October of 2011, my three daughters, and I spent four days as guests at Mauro Gasparin's Hotel Victoria in Trieste, and we loved it !
The staff was so helpful, and courteous -- they took care of our every request.
The rooms were attractive, clean, and welcoming.
The owner, Mauro Gasparin, charmed us with his personal attention, and genuine caring ways.
Trieste will remain a marvelous adventure in our memories of northern Italy, and our stay at the Hotel Victoria made it even more memorable !

Ran across this hotel while looking for a place to stay in Trieste and was very happy with
the choice.

Staff extremely helpful, breakfast was plentiful in choices and the rooms nicely done and
quite large. Not really far from the tourist area, city is not that big, but it is an elegant,
city with lovely neo-classical buildings.

I would recommend it to anyone.
