I have booked a room to stay with wife and kids, then I was informed a week before the arrival that the room was unavailable "due to computer crash" and that the booking had been lost. Since it was in the middle of the season it was very difficult to find the alternative accommodation. Finally, when we arrived to Duino... More

Villa Rilke is literally the best private hotel ever. I've stayed here already the second time. Comfortable and clean rooms, tasty food, good service, a swimming pool and even books to read as well as very nice and kind owners - everything here is just fantastic. It's a perfect place to come with a family, as a couple or even... More

Great private accommodation in a nice property in Duino. Very friendly welcoming and hosting by Deshan and Anna, who have been exceptionally kind and caring (rare to find these days!). You can expect a very thoughtful, helpful and warm atmosphere. Definitely recommended!

This was the first stop on our trip through Italy and Croatia; and it proved to be a very nice accommodation right in the middle of Duino and very close to Trieste. We had a nice room (#2) with a huge terrace looking out over the pool, the villa grounds and the town of Duino. The pool provided great refreshment... More

We stayed in Villa Rilke with children and would not go back again. The family room we were given was not suitable for the ages of children we had (childrens' beds in a loft up a steep ladder) although the ages had been given at time of booking. No alternative bedding could be provided. The breakfast was below average; poor... More

Just returned from Villa Rilke after having spent 4 nights with friends there. Booking was easy, owner was communicative. When using a GPS make sure you enter the coordinates as the house numbers are pretty awkward so it took some time for us to find it. We have rented two rooms, one room was pretty unspacious but still pretty good... More
