It was just one nights stay, too short but sufficient time to experience this grand hotel. Perfectly located. Welcoming staff. Spotlessly clean. Excellent value. I feel a little sorry for the other hotels in town as the Savoia will clearly become if it's not yet already the no 1 choice in Trieste. A balcony room overlooking the Adriatic will top... More

The image is an elegant hotel situated at the waterfront while still in the central city. So I expected a lot and was basically disappointed. Most of the rooms have a view at the harbour area. When checking in, I did not make any special requests and got one of the smallest rooms in the back seeing nothing outside. The... More

The Excelsior Palace is just way its name sounds: classically elegant in a wonderful location on the Trieste waterfront, a short walk from the central plaza. And yet, with all that, the prices were reasonable, maybe because Trieste is somewhat off the beaten tourist path. The staff were all great. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

I had one night at this hotel on a business trip to Trieste. It is easy to find in central Trieste, on the sea front, and is a rather lovely and imposing building. Staff were efficient, check-in was easy and the room that I was allocated was extremely spacious; the bathroom was magnificent, with all of the chrome and enamel... More

We had always wanted to experience this hotel but the cost on the internet has always been out of our price range. We initially had stayed 4 nights at a different hotel in the vicinity, but when we decided to stay an extra day, there was no availability left at our original hotel. Surpisingly enough, we were able to walk... More

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and it has always been truly a wonderful experience. The classical décor of the hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean and I have always managed to have a room with stunning views overlooking the Adriatic Ocean. The breakfasts are delicious and offer a large variety of delectable dishes.... More
