The hotel is just off the main square, which made is easy to find after my late arrival. My room was clean, comfortable, and very modern. The breakfast was great with ample and tasty food. Also, the service people very friendly.

Cheap/bargain accomodation is at a premium in this part of Italy, so for paying a small amount more, we actually got a lot more. We liked the layout, the spacious comfortable room we were given and the location for visiting the town sights, such as the main piazza. It was useful for getting away by hydrofoil the next morning as...

The style of the hotel was what attracted us here and we weren't disappointed. Reception was as it should be. The junior suite had all the room we desired. A wide bed, so no conflicts with the wife in the morning about "trespassing", you know. The coffee capsules were missing initially, but a more than adequate supply was provided the...

Trip to see the rock band so the main piazza was an unusual sight of a stage being built! Great place for decent food, weather and quiet understated charm. Hotel was chosen for its great location 2 minutes from the piazza and near everything. Also the contemporary design. We had a junior suite which was large with a great large...

Down town, everything is in working distance.... Just the parking is not so easy. Valet parking cost €23 that is z little bit too much. I just arrived, I don't know how the breakfast will be, but however - price/performance is very good. The room (310) is ok. The hotel can be booked via accour group.

A small clean well organized efficient hotel which has clean rooms and good breakfast. Has charm despite not much to look at outside the windows. My window opened into an alley where during the week it sounded as though a day care was adjacent (picture). Not a bother and added to the local feel of the place. Wifi was horrible...

The rooms were bright, the bed firm and the linens cool and clean. The breakfast was surprisingly good, especially for an Italian hotel. The hotel's central location is ideal if you are exploring Trieste. I especially appreciated the staff's friendliness.

An interesting conversion of a historic building on the cusp of the junction between the Imperial city and the reviving old town. Close to the huge main piazza and the road up to the Duomo and castle, a few moments from a wide range of restaurants and bars. Imaginative, minimalist decor, tending towards strictly monochrome. Good check-in, huge bed, quiet...

Location was very close to main square and plenty of cafe / restaurants - a quiet street though so no noise noticed. Welcome was efficient and friendly. Room was spotless. The single bed seemed larger than expected and very comfortable. Ensuite facilities were perfect and wifi good. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Right in the heart of the city. Within walking distance of the sea and shopping area. Nice staff. It's the only hotel I have been to that always greets people entering and leaving. They offer a very diverse breakfast that's always stocked. The rooms are great. Nice and spacious. And Clean! Would recommend this hotel to friends and family.
