Dear guest, We thank you for your review but please allows us to disagree with some of your comments: Your reservation was for 2 double rooms for 2 nights during the last week of July (which is peak season). You arrived in two, giving no prior notice that you would not need the second room – it was only at... More

Perfect location in Muggia, a nice little town outside of Trieste. The owner, Livia, was very nice and helpful with everything from restaurants to contacts with the police when we got parking fines! Comfortable rooms with a big common terrace. Well worth the money! We have been to Italy many times and I can really recommend Muggia and this little... More

Very friendly and helpful owners and staff. Reliable about our booking allthough no deposit. Good location and lovely terrace. Stayed in a room towards the sea with nice views and quiet except for some restaurant noise below but nothing serious. Italian breakfast in cafe opposite. Owners helpful with info about Trieste. To be recommended.

For me, returning to La Bussola for a second time was just perfect. Once again I loved the view from our bedroom and left the window wide open to be able to hear and see and smell the ocean. I keep the image in my mind and am glad that we stayed three nights. Livia's warm hospitality was evident in... More

And to complete the classic Seinfeld car reservation quote: "And that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anyone can just take them." Last May we reserved three rooms at La Bussola in connection with a two week family trip and made a 200 Euro deposit. We received a confirming email which we printed out and brought... More

Dear guest, we apologize again for what happened, as we previously did in person. Unfortunately it was an error due to a computer software update. We did our best to solve the problem finding you accommodation in a hotel of a two star higher category than ours, 350 metres away from our hotel (5 minutes walking distance) and we covered... More

The hotel is very good located, on the border of Italy and Slovenia. There is plenty of parkingspace in the neighbourhood. The staff was very friendly and recommended us some restaurants in the city. The hotel also has a nice terrace with a view over the city.
