“Great location at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012 via mobile

We stayed at Gens Julia for two nights in April 2012. We were greeted by Davide the owner who welcomed us in and offered us a drink. We had the twin room which has it's own bathroom but this isn't ensuite but in the room right next door. It's in a great location, only about a 5 min walk from the main square and is situated in the older part of the town. It is on the third floor so you have to walk up a few steps so I'm glad we didn't have our young children with us. Breakfast is a continental breakfast served at a time that suited us. The whole place was very clean and our bathroom was newly built. Davide helped us out with a map of the local area and lent us a guide book. As our flight was a few hours after check out he asked us if we wanted to leave our bags there to save dragging them around and we happily accepted! Overall a lovely time had in a quaint b&b. Of note when I searched on trip advisor it said the rooms were fully booked so I sent Davide an email and found out there was a room available this way.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

My and husband and I spent 4 nights in this delightful B&B centrally located in Trieste. Davide was a gracious and helpful host who had a wonderful recommendation for dinner for those who appreciate fine seafood. The rooms were clean and the breakfasts were ample and filled with many choices. The only drawback for some might be the many steps to his third floor B&B but I must tell you the climb is worth it. I would highly recommend Gens Julia for anyone staying in Trieste.

Davide and his family were very helpful and our room in this apartment/B&B was beautifully decorated. Our room had an antique wardrobe and both it and the bathroom could be featured in a design magazine. The bed was new and comfortable; the bathroom spotless. We would highly recommend this for anyone, and it would be particularly comfortable for an extended stay of a week or two! ( note: lots of stairs and no elevator! )
