This B&B is located on the third floor of an "unmarked" apartment building without elevators. It is close to the historic city centre and other tourist sites, but it's in a very busy street, specially being uphill and so motorcycles are accelerating when passing through below the window. The owner is very nice and makes an effort to improve the...

It really bothered me a lot wether I should give a critic or not, but I guess I'd like to share the experience. We had a room booked for the end of August. We arrived at Triest at about 21.00. Rang the bell as instructed and a man came to show us to our room. Without any further information/explanation he...

We only stayed overnight but thoroughly enjoyed it. The only issue we had was that there is no proper signage to identify the property. The actual address is correct but when we drove down the narrow road we pulled over and walked to the front door but we were expecting a sign showing this was a B&B however having said...

Invisible from the street, this lovely B&B has 3 rooms sharing some common areas. Décor was lovely, classic old building with renovated premises, walking distance from the best of Trieste. Mara's little local restaurant was a highlight - ask David about it! I knew nothing about Trieste, and was just staying overnight - Now I wish I had made this...

Everything was perfect: location, rooms, breakfast, hospitality. B&B is situated in old part of the city, in quiet narrow street just 10 minutes walking from the city center. The room was a wonderful surprise with beautiful antique furniture. Breakfast is typically Italian, served in a lovely little kitchen. But the best part of the hotel was our host David and...

I an very glad that I had an opportunity to visit and stay in this nice bed and breakfast hotel. Location is perfect, breakfast also but the owner Davide is the best. His hospitality and courtesy does not have price, he is perfect. For sure I will visit B&B Giulia again and highly recommend it.

This family owned and operated B&B in the older part of Trieste is a very pleasant surprise once you meet Davide and enter the less the old exterior of the building. The rooms are located on the 3rd floor but Davide was more that happy to help with our luggage. The rooms (we stayed there twice) are very clean and...

Many people have written the same things, so I can only confirm. Our stay here, for 2 nights, was wonderful. Davide was great- giving us his parking spot, helping us with luggage and maps and making a great cup of coffee as we settled in. The room was very large with stone, wood and windows- very charming. The views are...

The owner went out of his way to help us. After an exhausting day on a motorcycle ride from Split, we were tired, hot and hungry. We arrived in town with no idea on where to go. We called the owner and he came and found us on a busy street and led us to the B&B. He moved his...
