We spent a delightful few days in this hotel in early May. Our room, overlooking the harbour, was spacious and well furnished. The elegant public rooms have been carefully and successfully restored. The staff were helpful and friendly, especially the concierge, and the manager responded well very effectively when there was a slight problem with another guest. We hope to...

We had only one night here as we were travelling on to the Istrian peninsular but it was a comfortable stay with good food. The location of this hotel is excellent and close to all major sites, Grand canal etc. The historic hotel reflects the grand era and heyday of Trieste but has been kept well up to date ....

We stayed here last year for our anniversary and returned in April 2017 to stay for two nights because we loved it so much! We had a suite overlooking the harbor. The room was beautiful and quiet. Room service was delicious! Wi-fi was fast and the TVs large. All the staff were so nice to us and made us feel...

We had two nights here in a super room overlooking the port, with a terrace. Woke up early and went onto the terrace to see a cruise ship majestically steering straight towards me!

This is in a magnificent building overlooking the port. Apart from the first day when there was an enormous cruise liner which looked as though it might cut the hotel in two, the area in front of the hotel was clear of moored shipping. Our balcony faced West and we had spectacular sunset views over the Gulf of Trieste. Of...

The hotel is a former palace renovated in 2007. The design and decor are absolutely stunning and tasteful. There's a certain wow factor as soon as you step into the lobby. The closer I look the more I appreciate the fine details. Service is friendly, efficient and very refined. The location can't be better. The sound proofing of the hotel...

Old school, elegant, very good service especially the laundry. Surrounded by excellent restaurants at many price levels. Trieste is quite magical at night with the lights and music. A good city to walk.

The location of the Savoia Excelsior Palace is excellent, in the centre of Trieste. All points of interest are walking distance, which is a big plus. The hotel is very well furnished and maintained. It has a grand atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. The only criticism I have is that the hotel does not have a pool, yet...

Excellent location in a city that has a lot to offer. Clean, spacious room with great seaview. Very comfortable bed and a delicate and functional bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff. No free parking around the hotel, the valet parking service worked well and is recommended.

This hotel is just lovely, situated on the promenade, close to the centre of town. The room was spacious, lovely bathroom, very comprehensive breakfast. We loved it here, the reception staff could not have been more helpful, advising of ferries, car hire, and restaurants. The breakfast room is spacious, staff brilliant and the choice of food was superb. Thank you....
