Fantastic location, the view from the seaside rooms is stunning. Expensive but very luxurious hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and new. Coming from Austria, the breakfast was a bit dissapointing : no fresh juices, a lot of sweets - (typical italian), the fruit salad seemed like a leftover from the day before, minimal service ( you have to take coffee...

We stayed in Trieste for one night only and chose this hotel for its location and the rave reviews. We were not disappointed. As it was our only day by the sea we wanted to see the sea and got a room facing the front for a bit extra. Mind you the bay of Trieste is not that spectacular,so it's... More

We stayed three nights at the Savoia Excelsior Palace and could NOT have been happier - well - I could have been happier if the airline hadn't lost my bag for 5 days - but in spite of that - it was an exceptional stay! The hotel staff was very helpful in providing what they could to help me get... More

We decided to check out the #1 hotel while visiting Trieste, to see if it really is that great. I was a bit skeptical, no gym and no unlimited free wifi made me doubt whether I would agree with the reviews. Arriving outside the hotel I was already very happy as the building itself is very beautiful. I am however... More

I had been working in LJubljana, Slovenia for over 2 weeks and had a friend come visit me from Finland. We rented a car and explored, ending the day in Trieste, Italy. Being in a car all day, and with the hot, humid weather, I walked into this hotel. I did not look like their clientele. My friend and I... More

We love this hotel perfectly located on the seafront with the best of Trieste all a walk away. We did not dine at the hotel but did have drinks in the spacious, cool bar - it is excellent with the early evening sun coming in and the barman helped us with the local (Friulian) grape varieties.

We stayed for one night at the Savoia Excelsior as we were going to a concert in Trieste. We were only looking for a reasonably priced crash-pad, but a night here was such good value (if booked well enough in advance) that we took the opportunity. Unlike some reviewers, we didn't have the spectacular view, but at the price we... More

We stayed in this lovely old renovated hotel last week. The room was spacious, clean, beautiful, fantastic bed, huge bathroom and had a stunning view of the harbour. A wonderful breakfast was included. The only thing missing was a latte. We could get coffee and tea but no espresso style of coffee but fortunately there is a fantastic cafe steps... More

This hotel overlooks the Bay of Trieste, couldn't be better really. The superior rooms look out on that scene and have two sets of glass doors and small balconies. Just lovely. Having enthused about the view I would add that the main part of the city is wrapped around the property so a fair proportion of restaurants, bars, galleries etc.... More

Went to Trieste for a concert and wanted to make the most of our long weekend - couldn't have chosen better. Fantastic location, absolutely wonderful room with a brilliant view over the bay, friendly and helpful staff. Easy to walk most everywhere, surrounded by lots of places to eat and drink - can't wait to go back and will definately... More
