We spent one night at The Continental Trieste after finishing our tour of Croatia and Slovenia. We are on our way to the Amalfi Coast and Trieste was an easy 1.5 hour transfer from Ljubljana using Niko from SafariCompany .(safaricompany@siol.net) Niko dropped us off at the hotel and then we toured Mirimare before he left to go back to Ljubljana....

Very friendly staff who can read all your needs from your eyes. Especially reception staff was very helpful as we arrived with an olmost car brake down. Breakfast amazing for Italy only it isn't possible to get a soft boiled egg only hard. We loved it. Thank you for a nice holiday.

Stayed here for one night. Really lovely hotel in a great location. Very helpful staff. Very spacious rooms. Great buffet breakfast. Ideal hotel if staying in Trieste for a few days. We arrived by train and took a taxi from the train station.

The hotel was write in the city center, close by main attractions, the port, restaurants and shopping area. The staff was very friendly, the food okish, but the room was quite small, very poorly decorated - didn't have the feeling we are in a luxury hotel - as the price was "telling" us. The receptionist was very helpful when we... More

Stayed there for three nights on a lovely trip to Trieste and suroundings. A three stars hotel with too bigger aspirations. Room clean but with worn out furniture, we asked a king size bed and we get two beds closed together. Shower was a sad joke of plastic box fit only for people under 90 kg. As for the breakfast......

If you around 90kg or more then for your own comfort you need to ask for bigger bathroom/shower. In our case, it was kind of separate shower put inside the bathroom. So wasn't comfortable at all! Could be only nice for small/skinned/petite person. Rooms are clean, bed comfortable, hotel located close to the center (piazza). Breakfast quite nice however if... More

We inly stayed for one night at this hotel, but we had a nice experience. The rooms are spacious enough and clean. The staff is very nice and helpful. As far as the breakfast is concerned, there are lots of fresh products, including for vegans. We had breakfast on the terrace which was great. Also, the hotel is centrally located... More

Room was quite small but clean and with a nice interior. Shower was a bit of a joke (size and plastic which does not fit to a otherwise classic Italian hotel with fitting furniture). At 4 am you shouldn't count on hot water but maybe I was just to impatient. Service was good.

On a recent business trip to the area I stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Continentale in Trieste. At first I drove right past the hotel and I did not know where to park. The entrance of the hotel is on a pedestrian walkway on the corner of Via San Nicolo. After several attempts I notice the bell hop assisting... More

This hotel was excellent value for money. It is situated right in the middle of the city in easy walking distance of all the old city attractions. I don't use the word delightful easily but this would be my assessment of the Front Desk staff. It is a comfortable and very well run hotel. I would go back without hesitation.
