I last reviewed Victoria Hotel back in November 2010 and I have been returning here on a quarterly basis, ever since. Last week I spent four nights at Victoria Hotel and I am pleased to report that things have not changed since my first review, with the exception of minor improvements. Every time I visit, I enjoy meeting the familiar faces of the staff whom I've come to know well over the years, along with the general manager and the owner.
The lobby was nicely decorated for the holiday season and all public areas are kept spotlessly clean. Likewise, rooms were clean and comfortable; decorated with a warm and familiar style. The beds are most relaxing and the linens are top quality. There was a writing desk equipped with sufficient electrical outlets for all my electronics and a flat screen TV featured international programing in several different languages.
The bathroom is fitted with a Jacuzzi bathtub and also a rain forest shower head that provided good strong water pressure. Plumbing fixtures were modern and all functioning. Towels were abundant and soft. Bathroom amenities included shampoo, shower gel, hand lotion and a shower cap. Rooms were for the most part quiet with the exception of passing emergency vehicles on Via Oriani. There is a small spa located on the 5th floor; however, I did not visit the facility to make a comment.
Hotel Victoria's location is primarily commercial and a 15-minute downhill walk to Piazza Unita will have you in the heart of Trieste. The staff recommended several restaurants in the area that were all quite good. Breakfast is complete, having just about everything one could desire for the morning meal; eggs, fresh fruits and juices, breads, pastries & preserves, cold cuts and cheeses etc., and the girls serving are most attentive and pleasant.
I highly recommend Victoria Hotel to the TripAdvisor community. I do this reluctantly because it's become harder to find an available room due to the popularity of this hotel.
