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

The hotel feels new, and probably it is. I wanted a central location for my stay in Trieste and this was as good as it could possibly get. It belongs to the Grand Duchi D Aosta and that is where you go for one of the better breakfasts you can get at a hotel. While at the breakfast place, you... More

Stayed here on short business trip. excellent location, very central. Nice building quite funky and interesting design elements. Breakfast was next door which was a nuisance as it was raining. Room very clean but on the small side. would stay again though.

This hotel is centrally located in Trieste and is within walking distance to many restaurants and several Piazzas. You have to go across the street to the Grand Hotel Duchi D Aosta to check in, eat breakfast, etc. which was a little confusing, but easy enough. The hotel was sleek and modern and the rooms were pretty and clean. The... More

Stayed one night in the Vis a Vis, across the road from the Grand Duchi. Modern room - reasonable size with nice bathroom and fittings. However, lots of things not quite right, that made the stay troublesome. I couldn't fathom how to turn off the bathroom lights (tried every switch in the room), the curtains don't quite close so you... More

Hotel is centrally located in Trieste near all the main attractions and city square. You do not check in at this location but at their sister hotel behind you, Grand Hotel Duchi D'Aosta. The recieptionist was extremely nice when we checked in and she had another receptionist walk us across the street to our hotel room. Overall the staff was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Duchi Vis à Vis is a small and elegant four star hotel, built in a historic home in front of Grand Hotel Duchi d'Aosta. Duchi Vis à Vis is a "house " sized books, suffused with an intimate atmosphere. The combination of warm colors with light and shadow gives an overall sense of well being. Even the materials, from solid walnut flooring to the linen sheets, help to emphasize the feelings of pleasure. A small "asset": the Illy coffee maker in each room to ensure proper recovery. Duchi Vis à Vis is also meeting place for art. The hall hosts solo shows of emerging artists, book launches and openings. ... more   less
