Call ahead with arrival time; the check in is only attended regularly in the evening. It has only 8 rooms with common seaside patio and lovely views of the Adriatic. Although it states that public pay parking is nearby, one has to load and unload luggage at least 100m from the front door of the hotel. The room was big,...

Dear guest, We thank you for your review but please allows us to disagree with some of your comments: Your reservation was for 2 double rooms for 2 nights during the last week of July (which is peak season). You arrived in two, giving no prior notice that you would not need the second room – it was only at...

Perfect location in Muggia, a nice little town outside of Trieste. The owner, Livia, was very nice and helpful with everything from restaurants to contacts with the police when we got parking fines! Comfortable rooms with a big common terrace. Well worth the money! We have been to Italy many times and I can really recommend Muggia and this little...

Very friendly and helpful owners and staff. Reliable about our booking allthough no deposit. Good location and lovely terrace. Stayed in a room towards the sea with nice views and quiet except for some restaurant noise below but nothing serious. Italian breakfast in cafe opposite. Owners helpful with info about Trieste. To be recommended.

For me, returning to La Bussola for a second time was just perfect. Once again I loved the view from our bedroom and left the window wide open to be able to hear and see and smell the ocean. I keep the image in my mind and am glad that we stayed three nights. Livia's warm hospitality was evident in...

And to complete the classic Seinfeld car reservation quote: "And that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anyone can just take them." Last May we reserved three rooms at La Bussola in connection with a two week family trip and made a 200 Euro deposit. We received a confirming email which we printed out and brought...

The hotel is very good located, on the border of Italy and Slovenia. There is plenty of parkingspace in the neighbourhood. The staff was very friendly and recommended us some restaurants in the city. The hotel also has a nice terrace with a view over the city.
