Reviewed 21 May 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Miramare Hotel at Easter on a 3 night break. Although the weather throughout our stay was horrendous the hotel was not. Due to limited availability the only room available at the time of booking was a small double with no balcony. The room was actually quite roomy with a separate seating area in front of a floor to ceiling window with views across the Adriatic. The bathroom was also quite spacious however the shower was quite cubicle was quite small. The room decor was minimalist but effective, we felt very much at home. The hotel itself is situated off the main road into Trieste please note it is signposted. We arrived at 9pm and did not have any trouble finding it. There is also free car parking available at the hotel. The hotel houses a fabulous fish restaurant ' Le Vele' which is very popular with the locals but we never struggled to get a table. Breakfast was also first class. The staff at both the hotel and in the restaurant were exceptional especially on reception where nothing was too much trouble. Located only a 10 minute walk from the hotel is the Castle Miramare which is definitely worth a visit. There are also beautiful grounds to walk around, an ideal time to go is mid afternoon when all the coach parties have left. The town of Trieste is only a 5 minute drive from the Miramare Hotel. The hotel also has discounted bus tickets for the tourist bus which stops literally 100 metres from the hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel to fellow travellers we had a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

Fantastic view of the Gulf of Trieste from pleasant rooms. A great hotel for couples who want to enjoy a few days. I do not recommend it for families.Breakfast might be a better.The hotel is situated in a quiet area, near the castle, facing the sea and close to Trieste. Position of the hotel is great if you came by car.

I think the rooms were supposed to be of smart design: well, I felt young again as the room reminded me of my flat when I started my studies - in the late 70s. The bed look like an oversized sofa but surprisingly it was not uncomfortable. And the room was about the same size as the dorm in the 70s.

But the view in the morning compensated a lot: the Adriatic basking in the sun. And the staff was most helpful which really made my day.

This hotel is situated between the main road into Trieste from Venice and the Adriatic Sea. All rooms have balconies which overlook the water. Across a small road is a concrete seaside terrace which is the best you'll do for a beach. A small rocky beach is at the western edge but access to the water is also available via a metal stairway. This beachfront is very popular for swimmers and sunbathers and as with many European beaches, has a top-optional choice for women. Families of all ages gather from early in the morning and stay all day. The rooms were all modern with nice higher-end amenities and all beds came with mosquito netting to allow the option of sleeping with the large balcony doors open to listen to the sea.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and spoke English well. The included breakfast was very good (the best on our trip) and included cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, meat, cheeses, breads, eggs and other items. Although located on the edge of town it is a convenient location to access nearby sights such as Miramare Castle and other sights outside Trieste. There was a nice restaurant just down the street. There is free parking for those with a car. It is not convenient for those coming by train. There is free Wi-fi in the rooms which is nice.

We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again when we return to Trieste.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea so no real choice needed. Perhaps a better view from an upper floor.

We stayed at this hotel for one night as an en route stopover. The sea views from the rooms were just lovely. The hotel is set a bit out of Trieste (but an easy drive or taxi to town) and walking distance (15 minutes?) to the Castle.
Our room: smallish, cleverly decorated in whites and light blue, with a mosquito net on bed. The bathroom was very clean but also compact, not unlike what you might find in a three star motel. But it was fine, and there was a hairdryer, and the water pressure was good.
The room was hot (it was July) so we tried to use the air conditioner but it was so strangely noisy we turned it off. We got hot again so turned it back on. We tried to sleep with it on but in the end realized it was too noisy and decided to turn it off and try to deal with the heat. So, they may need to figure out a different system for cooling the rooms.
The bed: We slept in many different places on this trip, from modest to luxury, and I don't recall ever having problems sleeping, even though really some of the beds were not great. But even if the room had been cool and quiet, the beds were for some reason very uncomfortable, and sleeping was difficult, and in the end close to impossible. We really were not able to sleep at all that night which was unfortunate.
We did have a very nice view from the balcony, from which you could sea lights twinkling up and down the coast, and we swam form the the "beach" area in front of the hotel, which is a wide promenade where locals and hotel guests spread towels, sunbathe and swim. The hotel will give you towels to take across the street to the swimming area.
Breakfast was very good. A large selection of good fresh well-prepared food. There were eggs, and a boil-your-own-egg system, meats, cheeses, cakes, breads, fruits. The breakfast room is pleasant with large windows and views to the promenade and water.
We had a good dinner in the restaurant at the hotel, just adjacent to the reception. We ate outside and the ambiance was lovely with view of trees and water. The grilled fish was excellent, and the staff were friendly, helpful and cheerful.
So we had a very mixed experience at the hotel. It is a shame that the beds and air conditioning are problematic, as the location, views and atmosphere are special. As much as I would like to stay there again for those things, I cannot, because a sleepless night is too high a price to pay!

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Since everybody already wrote how beautiful this hotel is, I just assume a few things:

+:
Very clean, comfortable rooms, many towels, high quality cosmetic products, comfortable huge bed
Location: excellent startpoint for great trips, but you can also dive into the sea anytime you want, and can enjoy the sunset from your balcony. Nearby castle.
Sea. rich in sea creatures, bring your googgles if you like these sort of things
Breakfast: various, tasty, and nice coffee
Public transportation: buses in every 10-05 minutes. We could buy tickets at the hotel, we also got map of Trieste
Friendly staff
There are showers on the beach with tapwater


-:
no stores available in nearby, expensive to buy food or mineral water
beach: it is built of concrete, not so pretty, and only good for good swimmers. Usually crowded. In the morning and at night as well. (fishermen came at night)


and one more thing:
not many people speak english outside the hotel


I don't recommend this place for families with small children (because of the beach).

Room Tip: we had room 101, there was a tree ruining the view a bit. Get a room higher or somewhere else. But t...

This was my 2nd stay and it didn't dissapoint. The hotel is gorgeous and well maintained. It has light and airy rooms furnished in italian design. I think it was meant to look as if you're staying in a ship cabin. When you enter the room all you see from the glass wall is endless sea. Especially when staying on the upper floor. It looks as if you're directly on the sea. You have to step on the balony to see the beach below. The bathroom is in light marble and has a shower so big you can walk around a few steps. There are also lovely toiletries. The balcony is big enough to sunbathe on and has a boat deck floor and a glass wall so you don't miss on the lovely view. On the right you can see the Miramare castle and on the left there is the city of Trieste which is especially charming at night with all its lights.

Directly in front of the hotel there is a concrete beach which fills in quickly as sun loving italians don't waste their time; there's quite a few people at 7 am who stay till late at night. The small street in front of the hotel leads to the Miramare castle (worth visiting) and is lovely for a morning run. There is lots of parking space along the street which is free, but also fills in quickly, so you have to be early as the hotel only has 5 parking places which you cannot reserve. The city of Trieste can be reached in good 15 minutes ride by bus and the reception sells the inexpensive tickets. The bus stop is also very near. It's very convenient so you don't have to think about parking.

The breakfast room is lovely and looks directly on the beach as do all of the rooms. The food was good quality and there was enough variety. They could always add a few more things but that's hardly a reason to complain. You get a proper italian cappucino or espresso if you want. There are also a bar and a restaurant beside the hotel and some more beach bars some 5 or 10 minutes walk away. But the best thing at night is to have a drink on your balcony.
