Savoia Excelsior Palace – Starhotels Collezione
Ranked #2 of 50 Hotels in Trieste
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We stayed for one night at the Savoia Excelsior as we were going to a concert in Trieste. We were only looking for a reasonably priced crash-pad, but a night here was such good value (if booked well enough in advance) that we took the opportunity. Unlike some reviewers, we didn't have the spectacular view, but at the price we paid we really didn't expect one and the glorious room itself, which was spacious clean and tasteful with a huge bed, more than made up for the lack of a view. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was more than adequate. Overall we were very impressed and I would definitely choose to stay here again if I ever planned to go back to Trieste.

We stayed in this lovely old renovated hotel last week. The room was spacious, clean, beautiful, fantastic bed, huge bathroom and had a stunning view of the harbour.
A wonderful breakfast was included. The only thing missing was a latte. We could get coffee and tea but no espresso style of coffee but fortunately there is a fantastic cafe steps away from the hotel.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view to the harbour.

This hotel overlooks the Bay of Trieste, couldn't be better really. The superior rooms look out on that scene and have two sets of glass doors and small balconies. Just lovely. Having enthused about the view I would add that the main part of the city is wrapped around the property so a fair proportion of restaurants, bars, galleries etc. are with a 15 minute walk. The room itself was spacious and comfortable All that for 508 Euros for 3 nights. A bargain.

The staff were pleasant although the reception were not particularly clued up on the geography of the city so having told us the road we were looking for was not on the map and unknown, we found it on the map and summoned a taxi.

Also it is true that the breakfast is fairly average especially given the quality of the establishment. The sausage, scrambled egg, bacon in the heated containers were lukewarm as was the coffee the one thing that was hot was the toast which you made yourself. But really not bad.

A word about getting to the hotel. The hotel recommends you take a bus from the airport (every half hour) Two good things about this. Firstly the cost is a few euro and secondly it goes through and stops at a few places on the way, so it is an interesting tour, and you mix with the locals. The bus terminates at the bus depot at central station. The hotel suggests on their site that you then take another bus to them and say it's 800m, don't you believe it, it is actually close to a 20 minute walk which we decided to do believing the distance given. I hope I save one person from a hernia, not clever with luggage.

Went to Trieste for a concert and wanted to make the most of our long weekend - couldn't have chosen better. Fantastic location, absolutely wonderful room with a brilliant view over the bay, friendly and helpful staff. Easy to walk most everywhere, surrounded by lots of places to eat and drink - can't wait to go back and will definately stay at Savoia Excelsior Palace again!

A great boutique hotel if you are traveling to Trieste. Rooms are luxurious, the lounge is beautiful and very comfortable.....a great place to have a drink before dinner. The location is fabulous, across the street from the harbour and within walking distance to the main square, where you will find plenty of good restaurants, and shopping!!! The package we had came with breakfast...which was in the restaurant overlooking the water. Food very good.
Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the harbour

This old style hotel has a very good location, best sea views, pleasant atmosphere, very good services all over. In our opinion your best choice in Trieste but unfortunately the breakfast is miserable and the restaurant food very boring to say the least. A great pity. But Trieste has plenty good restaurants for you. We would definitely stay again here.
