Superb location. Room quite small but had small balcony and brilliant sea view and very quiet. Staff polite. Breakfast only basic buffet and each day same scrambled egg and greasy bacon - both quite cold. Minimal tae/coffee facilities in room and no milk provided. However, value for money excellent.

All was very pleasing, from the warm welcome at reception onwards. Lovely room and - a rarity - a comfortable bed. We had a great view down the front at Trieste. Staff very capable and friendly. Aperitifs at the bar came with freshly baked stuzzichini.

I was extremely pleased by the spaciousnes of the rooms and the location of the hotel very close to the centre. Also the breakfast was excellent, not the same we can say for the dinner, quite low in the variety and not fulfilling your expectations considering the hotel level service.

We stayed in a triple room overlooking the sea. The room was spacious and quiet. The beds were definitely comfortable. All in all the service provided was excellent, beyond the standard of a four-star hotel. Besides, the hotel is easy to reach if you travel by car, and it is situated in the very heart of the town so you don't need your car to get to the sights. You can leave it in the garage of the hotel (it costs 21 euros for 24 hours).

The last time I stayed here, I had a massive OV room with balcony & thought I would get the same this time. The room was very small and in the back but modern and clean. Front desk staff seemed to have trouble with checking me in even though there were no other guests at the time, questioned the rate even tho I provided written confirm and didn't make me feel welcomed that much. No bell staff visible to assist with luggage (unusual for hi-end hotel). I counted 5 behind the desk and it took a long time to get checked in. You must allow 30 minutes to get your car even though paying 21 euros a night. seems like a long time. Breakfast was good and included. Internet in room but I think for a fee. We used cell-key access.

Trieste suffers from a wind - the Bora. We arrived in a gale and had episodes of both snow and fog, but then Spring came! The hotel could not be better situated - right on the harbour front in the civic heart of the city. The city still has an Austro-Hungarian feel to it. Well worth a visit. The opera house (a short walk from the hotel) is a gem.

The recently re-opened, remodeled classic hotel is top notch luxury all the way. No expense was spared and the hotel has returned to its original glory of days gone by. Nothing negative to review regarding this location. Do stay here if you visit Trieste.

Staff was friendly, rooms quite spacious with great view over the harbour. Furniture in the rooms and facilities have seen better days but kept clean. Perfect location in the center of Trieste, however parking is quite problematic (hotel offers a parking with shuttle service for € 20). Anyway, we had a great stay there and would definetely choose this hotel again in case we will travel again to Trieste.

This elegant hotel faces on the Trieste harbor. We were lucky to have a room with a balcony and a fanastic view. The hotel is centrally located and a short walking distance to central Trieste. Our was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The lobby of the hotel is a bit sparse and could use some furniture for sitting and people watching. Overall it was a great deal and we would definitely return.

There is no reserved parking for guests to the hotel so one has to compete with the locals for places in the street. We arrived on friday evening late and there wasn't a place within kilometers. Finally the hotel staff took my car to a parking which was a a bit away and cost me 20 euros a night. Not very satisfactory.

Excellent position within the city with easy access to everywhere. Parking costs €20 and a driver collects and delivers the car. The hotel *was* probably the best in Trieste but the lack of investment is clear and the rooms are looking old now. Poor beds, uncomfortable chairs and cig burns in the carpet but balanced by great sea views. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay unless your a same sex couple (we booked a double room but were told we had to stay in a twin room when we arrived).
