“Unkempt/uncared for exterior”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

I was quite surprised when I came upon this hotel, as it differed GREATLY from the photo of the entrance shown on booking sites.There is no longer a marquee, and compared to the newly renovated Hotel Columbia a few doors down, it looks like no one cares about it, either.

Once stepping inside, the lobby area seemed a little shabby as well. As we had just stayed at a 4* in Bologna, we were quite surprised at the the difference 1* made. The room, a triple, as I was staying with my mom and son, was quite large, utliitarian, and the bathroom was quite narrow - no shower curtain and the water sprayed everywhere.

The hardest beds and pillows I've ever experienced - like sleeping on sodden bags of flour), well-functioning A/C - we got the room down to 17C!

Terrific location, close to the train station, supermarket (a small one, about 1.5 blocks away), major bus stop (take the tram to Opicina!). On a side street, so not as much traffic as one street over, but a late night garbage pickup at the end of the block. Helpful staff (Nicolo was great!), limited breakfast, but GREAT coffee and tasty yogurt. About an 8-10 minute walk down to the main drag.

Room Tip: Higher floor to avoid street noise.

Wonderful, polite and friendly staff, free wifi.

Ended up staying an extra few nights in Trieste due to ash cloud from Iceland; the inconvenience was made much more tolerable by finding this friendly, conveniently-located comfortable hotel with free wifi. Would reccommend above several other places in Trieste of similar price (am I allowed to name them?) anyway, they are Hotel Roma and Hotel Alabarda.

Reviewed 22 April 2009

This hotel is located in a great place. It is within walking distance to the train station, the major shopping areas, tourist attractions and waterfront. The reception staff was wonderful. Very polite and helpful with suggestions and directions. My biggest complaint would be that they boast "very quiet since traffic is forbidden at any hour of the day, except for guests." This is why I chose it. What they don't tell you is that the cross street next to it is really busy and noisy. Two minor points: they had the hardest pillows I have ever experienced and the street trash pickup was at midnight.
