We stayed here for four nights as part of a group and we paid for a superior room. The hotel was built when Trieste was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and is on a grand scale with excellent public rooms and good sized bedrooms. The interior has been recently re-furbished to a high standard and our bedroom was furnished to... More

An unforgettable weekend in Trieste: nice walks, very good food, beautiful castle, a shabby but attractive mood of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and yes, a great hotel. While planning the trip, I imagined a nice sea-view balcony and searched a hotel according to this criteria. Starhotels Savoia Excelsior was an instant falling-in-love for the first sight. I checked out a few... More

They did an excellent job in renovating this luxury hotel, keeping the classic style but adding all the modern installations. Large rooms and well furnished bathrooms. We had an excellent dinner in the Hotel Restaurant (good restaurants are difficult to find in Trieste)l A real Palace with fiendly and efficient staff.

This hotel is really worth its stars! The rooms were in very good shape, the breakfast was amazing, the staff was friendly and helpful. I was even a bit shocked when the bell boy wanted to carry my computer rucksack :)

Fantastic Hotel - great service, great staff, fantastic rooms. Excellent position in the coast. Literally a stones throw form the main town square. Good price for the room and services available. Cant say i found a gym but with the coast right out the front you should get outside and run. Looking forward to getting back there soon!!

We had a gorgeous room with balcony on corner giving both a view over the roofs of Trieste and to the other side to the seaside. A fantastic breakfast buffet was awaiting us in the morning with high quality of food, except for the orange juice. Staff in reception and around friendly and helpful. We suggest that they also sell... More

If you can take a suite with the seaview. In the evening have a bottle of champagne (not prosecco!) on your terrace overlooking the adriatic. The room is spacious, bed very large, bathroom old style marble in perfect condition. Staff friendly. Excellent barman does great after dinner drinks with "I'll have another" prices. Breakfast has everything you desire. Valet parking... More

Very striking elegant hotel facing out to the sea. The room we had was very large, sea view is well worth paying for….excellent marble bathroom - good breakfast. The staff were very helpful both at the main desk and at the bar. The hotel is in an excellent location to explore Trieste, which is a different Italian city to other... More

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
