This is a really lovely old fashioned hotel with an elegant style. It is on the rocky coast of Trieste but has a fabulous terrace with a stunning view of the Mediterranean where breakfast is served. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is a super beach lido with a bar and a sunbeds carefully patrolled by lifeguards... More

Perfect location with stunning sea-view, own beach area and good breakfast. Be careful as first we were offered a sea-view room with obstructed view (because of a tree). Very small elevator and some areas no elevators, only stairs.

The Maximilian’s Residence is situated opposite and above the Hotel Riviera. If you intend to spend some days in this area, Max is a great place to stay. We had a one-room suite. It comprised a double bed, bathroom with shower, a large, enclosed balcony, air conditioning, kitchenette (to have this you must stay 5 days or longer) with fridge,... More

Nice rooms. Great bathrooms. Sea side seating/deckchairs are quite limited when busy. Restaurant overpriced. Breakfast decent. The hotel is about a €20 euro taxi ride back from Trieste (Grand Square area), and €30 from the hotel to the city (+ surcharge). Internet kept falling out from the bedroom, but was fine at reception.

This hotel's best asset is its location: over the Adriatic, on the slopes of a small cliff, the sea is outside of the windows to smell and gaze day and night. The rooms are split between those in the older hotel below the Strada Costiera and those above it, which- although further away from the restaurant- have a broader view... More

Stayed in may for 2 nights in two different rooms. The view is absolutely amazing. This is not so easy to find on a coast where the most hotels have no view at all. Theay reopened after a reconstruction and I would say all the precedent reviews can be now forgotten. The food is from good to very good, nice... More

Lovely hotel with fantastic view over the sea. Beautiful restaurant terrace and good food and wine selection. Rooms are not very big but have all the necessary amenities. Most rooms face the sea. Breakfast is good and reception very helpful.

A magnificent venue, unfortunately spoiled badly spoiled by stingy maintenance and inadequate 'food and beverage' staffing levels and competence. We were assigned a room in the original wing (built 1898) and found it quaint if somewhat tired. Having spent eight nights there we had the opportunity of observing the various services..... breakfast service: two waiters to serve over a hundred... More
