Since we were to spend 5 days in Trieste, don't speak Italian and have mixed experiences of Italian hotels, we ordered a junior suite. We received a very friendly welcome by a male member of staff and were shown two suites to choose from. The one we decided upon was of the highest standard and had everything we needed. Especially...

Nice modern urban interior. Staff less than top notch. Seemed to be training a lot of interns who seemed to be stumbling over one another with countermanding information. Interior room small but stylish and air conditioner was not on first night so room was stuffy and very noisy outside with window open. Second night air conditioner on so all was... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in this hotel. We decided to stay in one of the "Loft" apartments which mean you don`t stay in the main body of the hotel. You are led down an adjacent alleyway to a secure entrance to some apartments. I believe this gave us more space as I believe the standard rooms are... More

This place gets full marks for creativity; the way they've turned an otherwise older building into something modern and quirky is really cool. The breakfast is adequate, and service is excellent. The rooms themselves have pretty interesting furniture (think modern, affected), but they're always clean and very comfortable. WiFi is very quick, and location is excellent (less than a block...

Location is amazing, right in the centre of the city, close to the seaside, Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia (the main square), the hill and the pedestrian zones. Rooms are quite basic and have some weird design touches but they are clean. Our room was quite cold during the night but we only stayed for one night and didn't figure out whether... More

I stayed at the Urban Hotel Design in late April 2014 at the end of a trip through Croatia and Slovenia. I took a bus from Ljubljana and simply walked, with my luggage, from the bus/train station to the hotel in about 15 minutes. The hotel is located in a great area with lots of restaurants and bars just off... More

Modern design hotel in old building in Trieste. Centrally located in the more elegant part of town. Fresh and stylish rooms. Good breakfast! No restaurant. Parking in separate place at 20 euro per night. Walking distance to many touristic sites. Nice!

It is now almost a year since we stayed here but Trieste and Hotel Urban Design remains in our minds. The hotel is a brilliant minimalist design created within the envelope of one of Trieste's historic buildings just off the main piazza. Our room and bathroom was chic modern with touches of the old building fabric left on view. The... More
