Reviewed 12 April 2013

Tucked in on a pedestrians-only street downtown, Continental is a clean, comfortable hotel.
The staff is friendly in most any language, and the breakfast is great. While the elevator is narrow, the rooms are spatious and appealing. We will be back!

We stayed at the Palace Suite (part of the Continentale but a few metres around the corner) for one night enroute to Croatia. Don't let the fact it is not in the same building as the main hotel worry you as the suite we had was excellent and it is no hassle to wonder over to breakfast in the morning. Staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The Suite we had was on the top floor and spacious with 2 bed, 2 bath, kitchen, french doors to the balcony (always good to be able to sample fresh air) washing machine etc. Very clean, modern and tasteful fited out.

It is in a good central location with the main plaza and waterfront being just 5 to 10 minutes stroll. Bus, ferry and train station are also within walking distance. If you want to shop the hotel is in the central retail precinct - also close to some nice restaurants and cafes.

If you are travelling with kids this is a perfect place. The upstairs bedroom had its own bathroom, TV and single beds. Kids loved it and nice not to be cramped on top of each other to relax. Breakfast was ample with a great choice for any fussy eaters and of course great coffee to kick off the day.

It's not the cheapest place in Trieste but you get what you pay for and the value was delivered. Overall a great place to stay and if we are in Trieste again would certainly stay longer.

Room Tip: The top floor suite in the Palace Suites (close bu not in the main hotel) is very large, modern and...

A 4 star hotel - the lobby under construction.. was not what we expected for a relaxing trip to Italy but what a surprise after telling the manager about our discomfort we were immediately offered a suite at Palace Suite just a few metres from the hotel - very comfortable, modern and large!!

I stay at Continentale every year for at least 3 or 4 days and it is always nice to go back. The rooms are cosy, breakfast great with perfect Italian coffee. The renovation is in course as we speak so it will remain one of my Trieste favorites! The hotel is in a great location in the middle of the city, in a street full of shops, bars and restaurants and close to all attractions including the coast and the main Piazza.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms facing the street!

This is an extremely well-located hotel. Clean hotel, spacious rooms, nice attached restaurant with a great buffet service. The hotel entrance is located on a no-vehicle lane, while it abuts a busy road. The sea-front is within walking distance. The hotel has functional free wi-fi. The staff and management are cheerful, with excellent spoken English. The large bathroom with a narrow cubicle for the hot shower is a great feature.

Room Tip: check on the facilities in the room. if you like a hot kettle, ask for it specifically. get your wif...

Hotel is centrally located, clean, convenient with friendly and helpful staff, especially during the evening hours. Although it is located right in the heart of the Trieste, this hotel is calm. The wifi worked perfect, the amenities were very good and cleanliness impeccable. I had a single room so the bed was small, however this did not bother me.
Breakfast was good and the cakes are yummy in the morning. I was lucky to be there during nice weather so I had my breakfasts on the sidewalk outside and that was nice. The hotel also has a bargain relatively good buffet for ten euros for lunch, and that I found really good since you may eat a good pasta and meat dish, with cheese and greens. There is usually a dessert which is good and coffee, although the coffee at this time could be improved, but in general it is very good.
I enjoyed my stay and I will return.

Room Tip: My room had no view, really, but when you are in such a beautiful city you just need to step outside...

Nice old style hotel in a central Trieste location.
The hotel provides parking, you need to abandon your car on the street at the side of the hotel, and they will come and take it away for you. Let them know when you want it again and it's delivered back.
Check in was extremely quick and painless.
The room was a large corner room, comfortable bed, mini bar, flat screen tv with literally hundreds of channels! WiFi worked fine.. No tea or coffee making facilities, but normal in Italy.
Bathroom, again large, spa bath tub, shower over bath, good toiletries..
Breakfast, a good choice of buffet breakfast, meat, cheese, yoghurt, bread, pastries and cakes.. Terrible coffee, so ask of a cappuccino or latte to be made..
All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Would stay here again.
