“nice place but rather poor service”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Unfortunately I was not very satisfied with the Hotel Capitelli. My stay started off on the wrong foot, because I had an old, invalid credit card stored with my booking through www.booking.com reservation, and the hotel cancelled my reservation. That's of course entirely my fault, but I would have expected the hotel to at least notify me about the cancellation. Luckily I could book again (I had already travelled to Trieste), but had to pay for breakfast, which for my original booking I didn't have to.

This was not all. On arrival, the wireless internet was not working (which the desk personnel did not tell me). The mattress in the bed was terrible. Further, I first got a wrong key, so I could not re-enter the annex where my room was, and had to get a different key.

It's a shame, because the hotel is not expensive, the location is great, and the room was very cosy and calm.

After researching using reviews from trip advisor we booked for 4 nights. I agree with comments made previously, courteous staff, clean room, ideally located for getting around. We were in a separate building with our balcony overlooking Riccardo's arch- also really nice not to have any cars passing by as it is the old town and streets are very narrow. Only moans are loo roll not replaced and our shower room was very close to neighbours windows! Breakfast was ample.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the separate building, rooms look newly furnished and view is great.

I go frequently to Trieste, and i slept last Saturday in this hotel. It is a one star hotel but it si really clean, almost new and not far from the center. The rooms are small but with tv, shower and, if summer, with air coindition inside. to go in the rooms there is a very narrow stair, but the are silent and quiet. To have breakfast people have to walkoutside the hotel and in 10 meters there is the little bar owned by the hotel itself: breakfast was nothing special but with tea, coffe, marmelades, industrial croissants. If u want to stay one or two nights in Trieste it is a ggod choice with a good balance between quality and prices. I definetly suggest it if you don' t need luxury and all comodities.

My partner and I stayed here for a short trip to see relatives in Trieste. The location is brilliant for the town and the room was extremely clean. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was basic, but fine. Really good value if all you want to do is have a nice clean base for exploring Trieste. It's not luxurious, but would definitely book there again.

Very central, and my small room was spotlessly clean BUT this is nothing more than a bed and bathroom outfit.

If you're looking for something else, it's not for you.

In summer it's worth double checking on air con. Rooms have units but not equipped with correct plugs to function, nor do they have the right vents to expel warm air so pretty pointless.

We stayed in the house where once Casanova lived, and you can be sure the mattress in the room is from his time. Apart from that, the smell of cigarettes in the room was very annoying and, after listening to our complain, the only thing the guy at the reception did was offering us a antismoke spray. Add to that problems in the toilette (the water was pouring constantly, which made sleeping quite difficult) and the picture is perfect for a comfortable quiet night.

Reviewed 28 October 2008

Hotel Capitelli is in a newly constructed building so it is very nice, clean, and cozy. The hotel is very quiet because it does not sit on a busy street. That being said, it is still well located near the main Piazza. The only negative aspect was that the walls were surprisingly thin so we could hear people walking around upstairs and downstairs which was a little annoying. The absence of any carpets in the building makes it worse but this is typical of many mid-range Italian hotels. Breakfast was pretty meager and offered yogurt, packaged brioche, juices, toast, hot tea and coffee....it could be improved. We paid 90 euros for a Friday night stay in late October which struck me as being a little pricey as we stayed during what I thought was the off season, but it was still a decent value.
