Decent hotel in a great location - right on the edge of the square and convenient for the buses and for business in Trieste. Breakfast selection good. Rooms had a slightly off-putting smell upstairs. Next time I think I will stay in the main hotel.

I know Trieste very well but unexpectedly found myself needing a hotel one evening due to other arrangements falling through at the last minute. I chose this hotel because it's literally steps from Piazza Unita which is the central point in Trieste, and it's a modern hotel. The main Grand Hotel Duchi D'Aosta is not my cup of tea, because...

We enjoyed this hotel. Beautifully decorated, quiet room,and very clean. Perfect location,at the most central Trieste, right behind the main square, with many good restaurants and cafe's nearby. Good and rich breakfast. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed this hotel... not at all typical (very modern in a quaint city) but fun. Would love to know the story behind all the Orson Welles memorabilia and artwork. Extremely comfortable room, very clean, and the location was perfect, right behind the main square and Harry's Bar. It's operated like a more modern satellite version of the main hotel... More

This annex to the stately Hotel Duchi has modern rooms with stylish bathrooms but of course no view onto the main square. However, our room did have a view onto the seafront and was quiet and well appointed. The breakfasts in the lovely old restaurant of the main hotel looking onto the square were a treat - lots of different... More

Beautifully designed rooms (probably the best we have stayed in in Italy) - classic but contemporary at the same time. Amazing stand alone bath (although shower had no curtain so sprayed out). We stayed in one of the duluxe double rooms that overlooked the main hotel and you could just see the Piazza di Unita. The staff could not do... More

Nice hotel in central Trieste with a cracking bar overlooking one of the central piazzas and with a sea view. Tagged onto another hotel which i think is a little more traditional but the facilities at the Vis a Vis were very nice. Not much of a view from the room though. Would stay here again definitely.

A very modern, clean and fabulously located hotel on the Square on the right. The rooms aren't big in the Vis a Vis section but they are fully functional with modern amenities and a spa tub and even a shaving mirror. Enjoy a drink or the great breakfast on the Square at Harry's and people watch. Trieste is a such... More
