Nicely decorated, modern and spacious rooms and right in the middle of town. We paid <€200 pn for a family room in August with breakfast. You'd struggle to get an Ibis for that in most places. Incredibly good value for what it is. Only quibbles are the breakfast buffet (somewhat limited selection) and parking (the hotel car park is 10... More

Like the promise of better or a good time(s) from a politician or a pros........* ends in disappointment and regret. The reviews on Tripadvisor were good, the hotel website is stylish and the photo's and location devine. The promise of a night in a grand hotel on the beautiful waterfront of Trieste was appealing and worth the few hours driving... More

This is an excellent hotel, a good 4 star but short of a 5. Position on the seafront is the best with great views out to sea and (on one of the nights we were there) of the fireworks over the bay. The restaurant is good but very few guests seem to eat there - presumably because there are so... More

This is a lovely hotel. Location is great, right on the sea front, near the old town. Room was very nice, clean and quiet. No balcony or sea view but I was not bothered. It was very comfortable. Service was good. Breakfast was dissappointing as mainly cakes, no fresh fruit or fresh juice. No gym either.

Located at the centre of town this hotel could hardly be in a better location close to the main public square. Rushing in after a long drive across Italy, we were already late for a wedding party but the staff processed our booking-in quickly, whisked our car away through their valet parking service and we got where we needed to...

To be in Trieste is to have one foot in the past. This hotel admirably allows that to happen while not sacrificing any modern touch. You cannot ask to be more in the heart of the action. It is worth the extra bit to get a view of the sea. The rooms are comfortable and high ceiling as one would... More

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
