From the first time I made contact with the owner and througout our stay I was very satisfied. The booking process was clear and simple and all the pre-trip questions were answered very promptly. We were given very easy to follow directions to find the b&b using public transport.
The standard of accommodation is excellent and was in my opinion very good value for money. The purpose of our trip was to attend a football match and we stayed at Elmagos for two nights.
There was a wide range of information available for visitors and in a number of languages. The owners were also very keen to help us during our stay. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the self catering layout ensured that we could enjoy our breakfast at a time that suited our needs. The continental style breakfast was enjoyable and an ample amount was provided for us with fresh supplies provided for the second day of our stay.
On our day of departure there was a public transport strike and we were offered a lift to the main bus station. Again this was very much appreciated by us.
The room we had would be very suitable for a family or for up to 4 people happy to share.
While the purpose of our visit was mainly to attend a football match we did have some opportunity to walk around the town. The weather was poor with rain most of our visit so I cannot say too much more about the town. We did spend two enjoyable evenings in the Black Stuff Pub, and I would recommend this to any visitor looking for an enjoyable drink in a friendly atmosphere.
Travel to and from Trieste airport was ok with an hourly bus service and took just over an hour.
In conclusion I would highly recommend this B&B and would have no hesitation in staying here aagain should be in the area.
