I arrived at the Trieste last night and found it to be just as stylish and charming as I expected. Check in was smooth and easy, and our room is elegant and comfortable, though I do question the decision to crowd the room by placing the computer/tv on a separate cart rather than on the desk, where there is plenty of space for it. Nonetheless, the room is beautifully proportioned with two tall windows overlooking a quiet and picturesque courtyard.
My only complaint: coffee or the lack of it. I can't recall the last time I was in a hotel that didn't provide some arrangement for self-serve coffee in the room. For example, I just came from the Josef in Prague, where each room has a Nespresso machine with a wide assortment of coffees. Here at the Trieste I had to get dressed, go down to to the restaurant and pay 4 Euros for a single cup of coffee. I believe the only in-room alternative would have been to have that same cup brought up for an additional service charge of another 5 euros, bringing the total cost of a cup of coffee to 9 euros. I understand that hotels need to make a profit on food and beverage, but guests need a convenient and reasonably priced way to start the day with coffee in their rooms.
