“Great Location”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

We are a couple in our 60's and stayed one night at the Hotel Colombia enroute to Venice. We arrived at the train station and it was about a 4 block walk to the hotel, very reasonable and easy to do. Easy walking to the harbor and old town areas. The lobby of the hotel had some modern works of art, which seemed a little unusual as it is an old hotel. Hotel staff were very pleasant. Our room was very clean and comfortable and faced on the street. We were there in May so we were able to keep the windows open at night. Bathroom was roomy with a large shower and bathsheet size towels. Breakfast was sufficient to get you through the morning and I had one of the best croissants I've ever tasted; it had a little filling in it and there was a flavor to it that was delicious.

This is quite a good hotel. I can't be effusive about it for some reason but nonetheless it met most of our needs very well. We liked the location, the room was spacious and very clean and it had pretty much everything we were after. The shower was a beauty. Breakfast was included in the price and provides a small but perfectly adequate continental selection. Wi fi is free and reliable. The staff were efficient and perfectly pleasant. I think the reason I'm holding back on praise is that the hotel probably needs a bit of a facelift. Not a major one, but one nonetheless. My wife, however, thinks it's ok and just needs a new colour scheme. Having said that, these aren't major things. We enjoyed our stay here and would very happily stay here again.

I stayed here for 2 nights, I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was helpful, and for the very reasonable price, the rooms were comfortable and super clean. I would stay here again.

I hate to break the string of good reviews, but i found the hotel Colombia in Trieste 'okay' at best.

Location:

The location of the hotel is close to the main station, which is good on the one side, on the other you'll have all the commodities a quarter near the station usually delivers (e.g. a quite fishy neighborhood). Anyway, the walk from the main station is quite short and you can also reach the historic tram in less then 15 minutes.

Hotel:

The hotel has a design positioned between being an art hotel and between a more rustic approach. Everything feels a bit retro, with some elements of style thrown in.

Rooms:

The biggest letdown was my single room for me. Small, even a bit cramped, dark with an LCD-TV, a desk with a chair, a bed with a horrible looking bed cover (reminds me of grandmas place) and a small bathroom with a shower. Everything looked a bit used and really retro. Not a place to feel at home (at least for me). I tried to get the air con to work, but it didn't work out, so the room stayed quite hot. The bathroom was clean, but didn't look very inviting either, with a very cramped shower cab.

Cleanliness: The room looked clean, not question about that. But it looked also a bit used, with some things being definitely over their life-cylce span (door handle for instance).

Sleep quality: Well, apart from the hot temperature in the room, i also had a problem with the blankets. It was basically a linen loosely combined with a wool blanket, which made the sleep uncomfortably hot and the wool blanket also made a weird feeling, like as it would not be very hygienic. The bed was also very soft, so no good sleep for me.

Service: The service was alright, nobody would try to outdo himself, but if you ask nicely, they will try to help you out.

Breakfast: The breakfast selection was not big (hey, it's Italy), but okay. The quality was also okay, as far as i remember. The breakfast room felt a bit cramped.

Verdict:

It was okay for night. The hotel is good located, not far from everything, but the basic needs that a hotel should fulfill include also to provide a a good sleep. Here the hotel lacked a bit. I wouldn't want to stay here for some nights, but one night might be okay, if the price is also okay.

Room Tip: I have also seen a double room, which looked like it has been renovated. It looked much nice, than m...

You get what you pay for. It is not the Grand Hotel, but for just having a room to sleep at a great location ( near the station) it is perfect. Clean and friendly staff. Only really bad thing: the pillows were hard as a rock. I never ever experienced such hard pillows in my whole life. I hade neck pain the next morning. Breakfast was OK but do not expect cold cuts, bacon or scrambled eggs. For the right price I would return again.

Man bekommt, was man zahlt. Dies ist nicht das Grand Hotel, aber wenn man nur ein Zimmer braucht um zu schlafen und dies in perfekter Lage ( sehr nahe dem Bahnhof) ist das Hotel perfekt. Sauber und freundliche Angestellte. Das einzig wirklich Negative waren die harten Kissen. Ich habe noch nie in meinem Leben so harte Kissen gehabt. Am naechsten Morgen hatte ich Genickschmerzen. Das Fruehstueck ist ok, aber erwartet keinen Wurstaufschnitt oder Speck und Ruehrei. Bei einem guenstigen Preis wuerde ich das Hotel wieder waehlen.

Staff is very helpful.
Breakfast is amazing.
Location is pretty awesome too, about a 10-minute walk to the main Piazza.
The room was quite large and the beds very comfortable.

Room Tip: At breakfast, ask the staff to make you a cappuccino - they make delicious ones!
