We stayed at the Savoia Excelsior for 4 nights including New Year. Simple said, we treasure our stay at this hotel. The Manager, Mr. Riccardo Zanellotti personally greeted us at the front desk and took the time to give us a good orientation of the city for sightseeing and his best kept secrets places to eat. Excellent recommendations and a... More

This grande dame of a hotel reposes on the edge of the Adriatic in Trieste, adjacent to the lovely Borgo Teresiano section of the city center. Elegant in its Neo-Classical design, you can’t help but feel special as you step into the elegant lobby. The staff is efficient and friendly, including valet parking. Our triple room with balcony overlooked the... More

The Savoia Excelsior is a wonderful hotel in every way. Upon check-in, we were upgraded to a large room (without asking) with a view of the harbor. The space was beautifully decorated in an art deco style and looked like Jean Harlow should have been lounging on the sofa. There was a balcony that allowed us to wave to the... More

What a great hotel and right in the middle of this wonderful city. I could not believe that when we checked in there was a young man from the USA as part of the concierge team and was so helpful during our stay. Everybody was helpful. The room was beautiful and overlooked the bay and was so spacious. We were... More

My family and I stayed here over Christmas 2014. The rooms are clean, nicely furnished and well maintained with sufficient closet space and an in-room safe. Although there is no iron or ironing board in the room, after calling the front desk, one was provided within a few minutes. The library is a great place to relax at the end... More

Nice old ambience, well maintained rooms and great bathrooms. Right in the heart of town never the governors palace, and most attractions are within walking distance. Across the road on the water front. Good buffet breakfast, and liked the lunch

We recently stayed in a junior suite which we paid for (not an upgrade). The suite itself is OK, beautiful view over the bay but room suite 425 remained cold however much we increased the heat. We also discovered that the FREE internet is only for basic internet not full internet which you expect from a hotel of this standard.... More

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.
