From the moment you step out of your car on the front the staff are fussing over you. Take your bags in into the hotel. The staff on reception are very quick and efficient we were even shown to our room by the head of front of house as they thought there might be a problem. Rooms large bright with... More

The façade, right on the harbour front, is wonderfully elegant and so too is the interior. The public rooms and the bedrooms are splendidly stylish and spacious. The location is unbeatable. The staff were impeccably helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast was not outstanding but was certainly adequate in quality and choice. The only criticism for me was the rather... More

Described as one of the most luxurious hotels in the Austro-Hungarian empire when it opened over a century ago, the Savoia Excelsior still has an air of grandeur and elegance without being imposing or too formal. The interior of the hotel seems sumptuous, with thick carpets, high ceilings, and lots of huge mirrors. The room where we stayed was at... More

In short words: The Excelsior Trieste not only is the best hotel in town, it is not just a true five star hotel. No, it is... More

First of all the setting is on the small harbour of Trieste so it is easy to take evening strolls along the waterside and nearby piazzas. The actual interior design of this establishment is testimony to an excellent recent restoration. The Library, lounge and restaurant areas are all pleasant and aesthetically pleasing places to relax in. The breakfast buffet is... More

The moment we entered the historic building of Savoia Excelsior Palace, our jaws dropped at the sight of the beautiful interior and its grandeur. We have booked a family room, which exceeded our expectations, with generous size and a view of the seafront. You can't beat the location either - situated directly on the waterfront and close to Piazza della... More

One feels a sense of a venerable history as you walk through the vast hallways and corridors of the Savoia Excelsior Palace. Everything here is grandly proportioned and done with high Italian style, from the spacious, immaculate rooms to the marble bathrooms to the excellent buffet breakfast. The bed was the most comfortable I slept in during a week-long, 4-hotel... More

We choose this location based on the Trip Advisor reviews. It exceeded our expectations with its grandeur and modern feel. After staying in a number of hotels in Italy, this one really surprised us because of the size, it was huge by compassion to some of the other hotel rooms we had. The bed was absolutely perfect, very luxurious. The... More

My family and I stayed here in August. We had a junior suite which was quite spacious and had a nice view of the port and water. The hotel amenities were quite nice (Etro shampoos and Illy coffee). We did have a couple issues when we checked in but the hotel handled these brilliantly. There was a metal screw sticking... More

I have to admit we got off to a bad start as unfortunately there was a mix up in dates which we realised the day before arriving. We were lead to believe that they would not charge us the original date but when we arrived they said it had gone through, despite calls and reassurances by phone. So we were... More
